Interesting that these pictures have shown up on a Russian forum --- we've only released the DTW1000H to customers in China who pre-ordered the LUNA way back in December 2019. The DTW1000H was one of the perks of the pre-order. Right now, we're still undergoing the international wireless certification process, so it is a China-only model for now. It may be some time before we release it globally, and perhaps only in select markets at first.

But some quick specs: 1 DD (7.5 mm beryllium-plated) + 2 BA (dual Knowles driver), with a high-end Qualcomm chipset, supporting BT 5.2, AptX Adaptive, and low-latency gaming mode. Battery life is estimated to be around 8 hours of playback, and 40 hours with the charging case.



If by any chance you’re looking for a tester in Europe, namely in Portugal, I can be it. It would be a great honor.

Dunu, you’ve sparked our interest, very much so. Let me hear those words. Let me hear that sound.

Really enjoying them. I need to do more testing but so far I’d put them up there with the best in terms of sq.

damnit! More money to spend. Where did you find this?
Alright, just ordered a set in gun metal color. I’m clearly obsessing over trying them since I can’t stop look at them online. Looking forward to comparing to PI7.

I think they compare favorably. Perhaps not on resolution but I prefer the tonality. Very musical and the soundstage is killer. In the past I wasn’t sold on the fit which is why I avoided them but they are light and comfy. Used them exercising last night and they stayed put fairly well. The ANC isn’t great - basically like all other ANC not named Bose or Sony.

The perceived small size (let alone the Klipsch name) was a selling point.

I would definitely trade up from my Tridents for these.

Anyone here heard of rtings.com? Wish head-fi had something similar to what they're doing..but they test only popular options since that's what people vote on to be tested. The sony wf 1000 xm4 suprisingly scored lower than the galaxy buds + because it had low treble accuracy (?). They currently think Samsung Galaxy Buds+ are the best wireless earbuds.


Found that someone already suggested Noble Falcon: https://www.rtings.com/headphones/suggestions but it's not popular enough to be voted/tested on.


Rtings doesn't seem to like Cambridge Audio very much:

I’ve never been a fan of RTings. Their subjective impressions never seem to align, even with the general majority of those in Head-Fi. It’s like they try to read the graph but mess up somewhere. Their graphs themselves are fine though. I just don’t trust their subjective impressions. Part of me feels like they don’t actually listen to the headphones and just try to read graphs.

From the outside in, they look like a review mill. Take that for what you will, but I probably wouldn't take too much credence to the opinion portions of their reviews. They're a decent resource for specifications, though, and I do tend to find their picture adjustment settings in the TV sections to be pretty good.

RTings also doesn't take into consideration EQ and stuff like that. For example, they don't rate Nura that high, but after you run their Personalized EQ process, the headphones shine. I only go to RTings when I want to compare and contrast what others have to say. Then I make my own judgements.
