Moondrop Illumination-3

Moondrop has equipped the latest Illumination with a powerful dynamic driver that produces a reference-grade natural sound output. The driver is made with a liquid crystal polymer dome, soft high damping factor PEEK suspension, Japanese Daikoku CCAW moving coil, and high-flux density N52 neodymium external magnet architecture. All these ensure the smooth movement of the moving coil, producing a lively natural sound output with ultra-low distortion, highly consistent phase across the frequency band, and super-wide extensions at the lower and high ends.

Patented Coupled Acoustic Chambers:-

Moondrop Illumination-4

The Moondrop Illumination has a patented coupled acoustic chamber design to the earpieces. The front chamber suppresses the undesired resonance that causes harsh treble, special pressure relieving structure controls the bass and transient response. This engineering marvel makes it possible to provide a non-fatiguing high-resolution crisp sound clarity with rich clarity.

Reference-Grade Sound Output:-

The Moondrop Illumination is tuned to provide a reference-grade sound output with rich crisp clarity. The finely tuned driver unit produces a realistic sound with natural tonality. With the single dynamic driver unit and fine-tuning by the professionals at Moondrop, the illumination has ultra-low distortion and a consistent phase across the entire frequency range. The pair has a wide soundstage with outstanding sound imaging capabilities.

High-Purity Cable:-

Moondrop Illumination-5

The Moondrop Illumination comes bundled with a low impedance co-axial structure cable. It is a high-purity 6N OCC cable with SPC shielding and replaceable termination plugs. There are three termination plugs bundled in the package, 4.4mm Balanced, 2.5mm Balanced, and 3.5mm Single-ended. Users can switch between these different termination plugs with ease and use the pair with the socket of their choice.
