Moondrop Kato: An Upgraded KXXS!!
Back in 2019, Moondrop released the KXXS, an excellent single dynamic driver IEM. The pair was highly appreciated for its staging and natural timbre and tonality. But it’s been more than two years since its release now is the time for an upgrade. Moondrop has announced its latest single dynamic driver IEMs, the Moondrop Kato. Kato stands for KXXS Advanced Technology Optimized. Moondrop has deeply studied, researched, and developed a new 10mm ULT(Ultra Linear Technology) Super Linear dynamic driver unit that they have utilized in the Kato. This ULT dynamic driver features a composite DLC diaphragm coil for unmatched sound performance. Moondrop Kato is currently available on pre-order for 189.99$. The pre-order period is live till 16th September. Moondrop has included a newly developed Line “K” upgrade cable as a pre-order bonus with Kato.
After deep research of over two years, Moondrop has developed a brand new ULT(Ultra Linear Technology) Super Linear Dynamic Driver. They have featured it in the latest Moondrop Kato. The Driver has a 3rd generation composite DLC diaphragm for producing high-resolution sound. This diaphragm helps the pair to produce high-resolution sound with good clarity and low distortion.
Moondrop Kato has a replaceable sound nozzle design. It comes bundled with two sets of sound nozzles, one made of Brass, and another made of Steel. Since both the materials have different characteristics, they affect the sound output too. Users can easily switch between them. The nozzles have Moondrop’s self-patented 3rd generation anti-blocking filter integrated inside to protect against oily ear wax buildup.
In order to ensure a comfortable fit, Moondrop has designed new spring silicone ear tips that suppress weak resonance through a special diffusion structure. It also lowers high-frequency linear distortion caused by nozzle resonance.
