Weaving the best collaboration for audiophiles and game fans

The EMBERS in "Embers Studio" of military online game "ASH ARMS " team joint with MOONDROP. With the "NEKOCAKE" as the prototype, which is suitable for the shallow-in-ear wearing of most ear canals and can be comfortably worn even in the small ear canal, we launch the first customized joint TWS.


The original popular role 88mm Flak36 as the theme, the EMBERS provided color matching, elements and packaging design, and uniting the virtual anchor MITSUKIYUKI, a customized exclusive voice prompt was launched. Everything aims to bring unprecedented listening experiences to the agents of " ASH ARMS" and the MOONDROP' s fans.




Dynamic Performance With Large Dynamic Driver

Moondrop has featured a large 13mm dynamic driver per side on the Nekocake. This driver is capable of producing high-quality sound performance providing a deep-diving bass response, rich midrange, and a smooth treble region with excellent detail reproduction. Thanks to this powerful dynamic driver, the Nekocake achieves nonlinear distortion with full-frequency THD+N lower than 0.5%. This driver has a titanium dome with a composite diaphragm and imported CCAW voice coil for best performance. 




Moondrop’s Trusted VDSF Target Response

Similar to most of the earphones by Moondrop, the latest Nekocake also has a frequency response that is similar to their famous VDSF target response to bring a natural and pure sound response with a wide soundstage presentation. The pair also has different tuning options adjustable with just a single click. Moondrop has pre-loaded five different tuning profiles for the Nekocake. These are easily accessible via the Moondrop Link application. Different from the common EQ switching, these five kinds of tuning are professionally compensated and adjusted by their R&D senior team, Balanced tuning provides a more durable and balanced timbre, which is suitable for most types of music.

Active-Noise Cancellation(ANC) Technology

Nekocake features ANC active noise-cancellation technology. It effectively reduces the ambient background noises. The pair has two noise cancellation presets, On and Off. Users can toggle the ANC by a long press on the earpiece. Nekocake also has Intelligent Voice Call Noise Cancellation technology that provides crisp voice transmission over phone calls.




Simple Touch Operation

Moondrop Nekocake has an easy touch operation for accessing various functions on the pair. These can be used to turn the ANC on/off, call pickup/disconnection, play/pause media, select previous/next track, or use the voice assistant.
