The stunning MoonDrop Nameless proved to be an excellent choice for those who appreciate earbuds with as flat sound signature as possible. The bass is flattened and calm, the mids are lean-back and not too upfront, and the highs are smooth and with almost no peaks. With no sibilance and no harshness, these will fit everybody, even people with very sensitive hearing.
I like my earphones with some extra oomph in the bass and extra sharpness and detail in the treble, but if you're looking for a very natural and almost flat experience, these will fit you perfectly!
Excellent level of clarity. Absolutely no sibilance, no harshness, and no pierce.
Great build quality compared to most earbuds. The housings are stunning.
The cable was rolled perfectly in the package - you get a perfectly straight cable out of the box.
The sound is quite mellow in an unimpressive way for anything other than vocals.
Mediocre bass performance. It has very little impact.
Quite overpriced for what you get, in my opinion.

Comfort & Fit
I was wearing these earbuds for several hours straight and felt no discomfort, no soreness and no itching. Very impressive! Getting a tight fit is still an issue for me, but what I'm getting from these is good enough. Putting them in was very straightforward and effortless.
Lows / Bass
Stable but very mellow bass. Very little impact and depth, especially if you don't have a super-tight fit with these earbuds. The bass isn't loud and doesn't get very low, but does a perfect job when it comes to warming up vocals or common instruments. For electronic music, or anything that needs more beef and impact, these just won't do. I would say that the bass is probably as flat as it can get.
Mids / Vocals
The best way to describe the mids is "neutral". They are not bright, nothing like Headroom MS16 or PLEXTONE X42M, but also not dark, unlike the VE Monk Plus. They seem to be perfect for those with increased hearing sensitivity to high frequencies, but just not vivid enough for those who like some extra sparkle to their mids.
Highs / Treble
Clear and not overemphasized, but also doesn't hold anything exceptionally impressive. To be frank, the much cheaper VE Monk and Headroom MS16 offer clearer and sharper treble performance, even if may seem too upfront or piercing for people with sensitive hearing. The Nameless, however, offer a comfortable listening experience for everybody, regardless of hearing sensitivity.
