I wrote a short article covering some details about it. You can find all the specifications at the bottom of it.

Here is the article: https://keephifi.com/blogs/news/kbear-aurora-launch

If you plan to buy it from KeepHiF, you can get it for $125 (10% off) with the code VOJA. It is an affiliate code, meaning I will receive a small commission if you use it to purchase any product from the website.

I also have one on the way, and I'm pretty excited. New silhouette, new look, and a new single-driver.

I asked for it. -8766190541456135016.jpg
Looks Harman-ish if it's normalised. Interesting but at $200, makes me wonder if it's going to cut-it. There are many Harman tuned IEMs in and around that price.

If the Aurora sounds as good as the Believe, we are in for a treat. I have been listening to the Believe with a 16 core balanced cable out of my Xduoo X20 and it is amazing!

Aurora has great looks and has a competitive price — in time I’d be interested in how it compares to the Mele, which is a harmanish single DD that was built with a $150 price tag in mind, but is selling for $50.

Both are very sleek in my opinion, and I’ll always have a soft spot for single DD.

I haven’t looked back at the FD5 curve to check exactly where the triple peaks are, but Aurora’s three-peak crown in upper mids to treble reminds me of that graph?
There’s also that TForce Yuan Li duking it out for the budget to midrange single DD title…

and naturally Moondrop’s offerings which many of us are well acquainted with.
