I don't feel like the bass is jumpy and energetic like it could be, and it just leaves me wanting more. I'll try to get hold of a Final Audio A8000 and a Shure KSE1200 to find out how much better an IEM can get. IEMs are notoriously difficult to review and compared to full-size headphones, it is problematic to trust that the review findings will be applicable to all readers. Starfield is equipped with a 24AWG litz structure 4N purity OFC earphone cable, which ensures rich sound details and full dynamics. It is definitely the heaviest IEM that I currently have and it still doesn't put too much strain on my ears though it may with other ears (smaller ears maybe).

Furthermore, it seems that the bass isn't pushing the track along at the same pace as the rest of it. I find that there is some upper mid energy that does not parallel the treble quantity and bite factor, which makes me either want more treble, or less upper mids to balance that out. Maybe that does exist and I just haven't found it yet, but there are also numerous IEMs over the thousand dollar mark that the Moondrop Starfield sounds better than as a result of its excellent tonality as well. This aids with instrument separation, sense of speed and immediacy, and overall cleanliness of the sound. Treble is about equal parts milquetoast, rolling off fairly linearly post-5kHz with a tad bump in the mid-treble at around 8kHz and in the bottom air frequencies.Testing the soundtrack “Cornfield Chase“ from the movie Interstellar which showcases the brilliant use of church organ by Hans Zimmer to depict the feeling of scale and grandeur is reproduced by Starfields exceptionally well and immediately we were shocked to hear the natural reproduction of the instrument. As a result, this gives Starfield’s representation a really enjoyable, and very dynamic listening experience. Compared to a “flat” tuning, this particular tuning has more elevation in the bass range and treble. Transient attack is fairly soft - there's no way around it - and dynamic slam is pretty lackluster with an oft-cited "pillowy-ness" to the way hits are articulated. The Shure are tighter and faster in the lows while the Starfield are generally just slightly more resolving.

Not to say that it isn’t good sounding (because it really is), just that the midrange is not quite as pronounced.Overall, I would say that the Starfield are about average without any glaring faults in the technical department, and place tuning over ultimate performance.
