Introduction

MOONDROP Logo

Over the course of 2021, MOONDROP has probably made the biggest impact when it comes to the wacky world of in-ear monitors. Their products are often recommended as the best in class at various budgets by reviewers far and wide, and both the Aria (2021) and KATO did impress me enough to consider anything the brand puts out, at least to where it's given more consideration than others, including when HiFiGo inquired whether I'd like to take a look at MOONDROP's first set of TWS earphones. Here we are examining the MOONDROP Sparks as such, and thanks again to the company, over HiFiGo, for providing a review sample!


As I write this, MOONDROP has gone ahead and released an even newer set of TWS earphones, the Nekocake. It costs ~$40 and features Bluetooth 5.2 as well as hybrid ANC. How could the more expensive Sparks compete against that? For one, the MOONDROP Sparks is more mature. When a company suddenly makes TWS sets, it's safe to assume there will be plenty of firmware updates. The Sparks underwent multiple tuning changes and bug fixes over the weeks of international release and had first been released in China in the two other colors seen above. What I have here is the International version in black, a new color released at said launch which also differs in mobile app support. So while this review is still fairly representative of both versions of the MOONDROP Sparks, be aware of this distinction as we begin with a look at the product specifications in the table below.
