Moondrop Kato

KXXS Advance Technology Optimized, Moondrop Kato. After the repeated design, verification, and improvements over the past two years, Moondrop has developed a brand new ULT (Ultra-Linear Technology) dynamic driver unit that presents a powerful and engaging sound reproduction with low distortion and natural timbre. Moondrop Kato utilizes this ULT dynamic driver with 3rd generation DLC (Diamond-like Carbon) composite diaphragm. It has high rigidity, a high damping coefficient, and is extremely lightweight. Its comprehensive acoustic performance even exceeds that of a beryllium diaphragm. The pair has a three-dimensional look with a brand-new MIM stainless steel cavity.

 

Moondrop Kato brings replaceable sound nozzle design with two different sets of ear nozzles. The nozzle can easily be replaced by a quick-release structure with a screw. Moondrop has included two pairs of sound nozzles, made with different materials (Steel & Brass). Both the Steel and Brass have different sound characteristics that can be switched as per one’s requirement.

Kato comes with a newly-developed 10mm Ultra-Linear Technology Super Linear dynamic driver unit. It includes an efficient composite magnetic circuit with internal & external magnets, a linear air circulation structure, as well as a larger brass acoustic cavity, an extra-fine imported CCAW sound coil, and a high-frequency phase waveguide.

Kato has been designed using MIM Stainless Steel material. The earphone shell is cast by the MIM powder metallurgy process. The front acoustic cavity of Kato is designed with the help of volume and structure simulated by FEA (Finite Element Analysis simulation). Combined with the high-frequency phase guide components on the driver, the front cavity arrangement in Kato is superior to other so-called special tuning components. The pair is tuned by professional acoustic engineers following the VDSF target response. Moondrop Kato has a brand-new third-generation patented anti-blocking filter integrated on the ear nozzle. It prevents oily ear wax from blocking the filters and is more conducive to mid and high-frequency sound.
