MoonDrop Illumination: titanium housings and acoustic chambers to reduce resonances

The Chinese company MoonDrop has launched the sale of Illumination in-ear audiophile headphones. According to the company, it took 3 years and a lot of effort to create the new item. The result is a “reference class” product that is suitable for both serious high-end players / amplifiers and mid-range mobile devices.

The company has highlighted several main features of Illumination. For example, the manufacturer emphasized the use of titanium alloy: cases were made of this material, which were additionally covered with a layer of gold. According to MoonDrop, the cases are so well protected from scratches that they are difficult to damage even with a knife.

Also, attention was paid to emitters that operate in the range from 10 Hz to 50 kHz. The main feature of the 11mm Liquid Crystal speaker is the Japanese CCAW coils with N52 neodymium magnets. They also provided a system for suppressing resonances, implemented through special patented acoustic chambers.
