EQUIPPED WITH THE ALL-NEW ULTRA-LINEAR DYNAMIC DRIVERS FOR EXCEPTIONAL AUDIO
The team of acoustic engineers at Moondrop have spent over two years in research and development for the all-new ULT (Ultra Linear Technology) Super Linear Dynamic Driver for the KATO. This newly engineered driver is a 10mm driver unit that features a DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) composite diaphragm coil. The driver features a composite magnetic circuit that creates a powerful magnetic force inside the cavity allowing for swift movement of the driver coil. It also has a larger brass cavity, an imported CCAW coil, and a high-frequency waveguide system to provide nothing else but exceptional sound.
3RD GEN DLC COMPOSITE DIAPHRAGM WORKING IN CONJUNCTION WITH ULT DRIVERS
The Moondrop KATO is equipped with the latest technology in the audio domain. Featuring a 3rd generation DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) composition diaphragm coil, this diaphragm is made using three materials with different characteristics to form various parts of the diaphragm. It has high rigidity, a high damping coefficient, and is extremely lightweight. Its comprehensive acoustic performance even exceeds that of a beryllium diaphragm. This in conjunction with the ULT drivers delivers precise audio reproduction.
FEATURING THE NEW 3RD GEN ACOUSTIC FILTER AND A INTERCHANGEABLE EAR NOZZLE
The Moondrop KATO features some of the company’s latest innovations in terms of design and build. Moondrop KATO comes with 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. In addition to this, Moondrop has designed KATO with a replaceable ear nozzle design. They have included two sets of sound nozzles in the package, made with different materials(Steel & Brass). Both the Steel and Brass provide different characteristics to the sound, users can switch between them easily. The nozzle can easily be replaced by a quick-release structure with a screw
PROFESSIONALLY DESIGNED SHELLS TUNED FOLLOWING VDSF TARGET RESPONSE
The team of acoustic engineers at Moondrop have gone to lengths to deliver an accurate sounding earphone. To achieve this the front acoustic cavity of the Moondrop KATO is designed with the help of volume and structure simulated by FEA (Finite Element Analysis simulation). It’s designed in such a manner to maintain a balanced tuning profile with a sound that will complement different genres well. 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.
EXQUISITELY DESIGNED SHELLS WITH A THREE DIMENSIONAL LOOK
The Moondrop KATO has been designed with utmost precision and delivers a stunning visual aesthetic. Moondrop has designed KATO with a modern design using MIM Stainless Steel material. MIM is a process by which powdered metal is mixed with a binder to form a resin in the desired shape and applying high-temperature sintering to achieve the form. There is a high degree of freedom in moulding the resin into the same shape as the cast, making it possible to achieve a complex internal design even with metal. The earphone shell is cast by the MIM powder metallurgy process. Every section of the surface is made smooth by a manual grinding process.
BUNDLED WITH THE NEWLY DEVELOPED SPRING SILICONE EAR TIPS
The Moondrop KATO features ear tips that are designed from soft silicone for superior comfort and noise isolation. Moondrop KATO comes bundled with the newly developed Spring Tips, which suppresses weak resonance through special diffusion structure and significantly lowers the high-frequency linear distortion caused by nozzle resonance, making the high-frequency timbre more natural. In addition to this, the ear tips offer a snug fit and sit comfortably in the ear canal without being sticky. The ear tips feature a special reinforcing rib support design to prevent bass loss caused by sound leakage.
HIGH-QUALITY CABLE WITH 2-PIN CONNECTOR AND GOLD PLATED PINS
The Moondrop KATO comes with a high-quality thick silver-plated copper cable. This cable has been coated with high-permeability mixed material which provides an ultra-low dielectric coefficient. The cable provides smooth signal transmission with low internal resistance ensuring a pure sound output for the users. The cable has a standard 0.78mm 2-pin connector allowing for upgradability and replacement. The pins for the cable have been gold plated to offer a clean audio signal.
