Moondrop KATO. Not much info yet, my bet is pure beryllium DDs, $499 or $599

This is the info they provided. No mention of beryllium ….

KATO is equipped with a new independently developed U.T.L super-linear dynamic driver, which includes a more efficient composite magnetic circuit of inner and outer magnets, and a linear air circulation structure, the third-generation DLC composite diaphragm, and a larger copper inner-cavity.

DLC diaphragm, hmm I guess around $150

I think I have found my IEM to splurge my meagre savings. I like how Moondrop treats their IEMs and would be happy to gamble with them even if it costs over $250. Although, I expect them to be in same price bracket as Kanas series because it is a successor to it.

Viper's USP is to make everything sound good. That's the proprietary drivers that the OG team developed. So as long as it sounds good it means it works for you. V4A is arguably the most easy and effective mod in Android. Glad you are enjoying your GK10. :)
even with only few hours of listening i'm already in love, they sound so different from zax, a totally superior level in every aspect.
i'll wait to burn them in and adjust my brain and ears to them then will post some newbie impression

Single DD IEMs are brilliant. :)
First Row: Dunu Zen, Campfire Atlas, Campfire Vega 2020, Beyerdynamic Xelento
Second Row: Dunu Luna, Acoustune HS1670SS, ikko OH7, Sennheiser IE 800 S

hello, can you rank them? I'm kind of interested with IE800s & OH7 but can't find a test unit for OH7.
Thanks,,

Ordered the 7Hz Timeless from DROP. My curiosity for planar IEMs is boiling over now. Still trying to not wade into tribrids, even though they seem to be the mainstream tech for refined "hi-fi" IEMs. Betting on a decently tuned planar makes sense for my taste and hearing.

Is there a frequency response graph for the 7Hz Timeless? I am interested, but these days won’t buy without comparing to other IEMs…. Not that frequency response graphs are all there is to it, but it does provide a useful reference point…

BGGAR graphed it for his review. There's a little peak right around 2-3k but otherwise it follows his ideal curve pretty closely, which is encouraging. (His library has some overlap with mine.)

Edit: Or, what RikudouGoku posted :D
