Enjoy reference-grade sound from the 64Audio Trió. This gorgeous IEM is fitted with 1 dynamic driver and 2 balanced armatures for a smooth sound signature. The incredible LID, tia and Apex Core technologies enhance the laid-back playback and immersive 3-dimensional feel in your music.
Say ‘No’ to Distortion with tia
The 64Audio Trió’s patented Tubeless In-Ear Audio (tia) system reduces unwanted resonance and distortion for a transparent and lifelike sound. This is achieved by allowing the single dynamic driver and 2 tia balanced armature drivers to radiate freely in the single large tia bore with no obstructions in front of the drivers. It features special acoustic chambers instead of tubes that constrict the sound of the drivers.
The Apex IEM
The Air Pressure Exchange (Apex) Core allows a seamless airflow and is fitted through the entire solid aluminium shell. A perforated grill on the elegant brushed aluminium faceplate prevents the obstruction of air for the effortless reproduction of music. This patented vent releases air pressure for better comfort and lesser fatigue while enhancing noise isolation that’s similar to the m15 module.
Pick Any Source Device with LID
The different source amplifier output impedances of smartphones, DAC/Amps, Hi-Res Audio Players and more, can cause the frequency response to vary across devices based on the increase in resistance. A patented Linear Impedance Design (LID) circuit corrects the non-linear electrical resistance of the multiple driver-sets to restore proper interaction with the source device. It preserves the desired sound signature while staying constant and reliable.
I got the Trio as an upgrade to my ThieAudio Monarch MKIIs. The Trio is a fantastic step up and superb IEM that complements (and trumps) the MMKII. I couldn’t agree more with 64 Audio’s definition of the Trio when they say that it is a perfect balance of analytical reference sound that’s also dynamic, fun, and engaging while being extremely comfortable for long hours of listening (thanks to the compact size and APEX). It presents a sweet spot between reference-level clarity and a smooth sound signature for extended listening. It is a light IEM and extremely well-built. And believe me, APEX makes an enormous difference. It causes almost no fatigue and pressure build-up in my ears and makes the listening experience even more relaxed. The imaging and soundstage are also top-notch as I can hear each individual instrument's sound and where it is playing from on the stage. I am using the Trio paired with my Qudelix 5k and Shanling UA3. My next plan is to upgrade to a balanced cable. On the topic of cables, if there's one thing that I disliked, it is the absence of a Balanced Cable after paying so much. 64 Audio can surely do better for the money they are charging for this IEM.
One more thing- initially I had planned to buy the U12T but after auditioning it, I realized that I prefer a hybrid drivers-based setup instead of an all-BA drivers-based one. Hence, I strongly recommend that you try out various IEMs before paying so much money.
In a collection of many big hitters, I find Trio to be my best IEM. It has the sweet spot between musicality and reference tuning, and the bass is quick and tight.
Holographic soundstage adds to the magic.

Very Useful Product for USB C easily connect headphone for the music listener.
I write this review after almost 6 months of purchase. During this period I bought several other IEMs and was listening to a variety of sounds. The Moondrop Kato is a unique iem in its own way. Perfect balanced sound for all genres of music. All frequencies shine on this iem. My only problem is with the fit. It's a bit heavy, being solid CNC machined metal. I haven't tried the more evolved tips to resolve the fit issue. The sub bass and mid bass are quite surprisingly more prominent than some of the planar IEMs I listened to. The vocals and high frequencies were so much clear and bright with no distortion or sibilance even at higher volumes. The Kato is easy to drive and expose nuances in music that remain subdued on other IEMs. Its a whole new experience listening to hi definition music on Kato. Slowly building on you as it gradually burns in. The Kato is a must for aspiring audiophiles. It also is a reference monitor for comparisons with other Hybrid, Planar and BA iems. I am sure, you won't be disappointed with its performance.
Great Purchase, totally recommended.
Price to performance ratio is awesome.
These are pretty great modular cables, which has a good price to performance ratio. Build quality relatively sturdy.
Wow..these are still V Shape tuning king...edm or rock...electronic music is excellent in this. The recent zeros are too hot in treble for me.
Excellent bullet earphones...if you give it some power....this will blow your mind for sure...not good for phone output..you need a very good dongle like tempotec hd pro or ibasso dc03 pro...excellent pairing.
First time ordering from this store, ordered on the 18th morning and got it on 19th afternoon (Chennai). At first I was disappointed but as I listen I can hear more details, I don't know if it's a good thing as some of the songs I listen to have some anoying background noises and the vocals seems enjoyable. Fit is comfortable and easy to put on. Overall I think it's worth the money.
Gives required boost from Mobile audio out to My IEM and DT 770 pro 250 OHMS Headset
Great power output and sounds sweet. Few a very minor cons, but overcome by the pros. Its a good buy overall.
Other options for portable players available now with almost double the price is shanling m0 pro or hiby R2
The DAC was purchased with lot of apprehensions on the sound quality. But it came out a winner. Beautiful sound, punch bass, solid mids and very airy and clear highs. A superb combo for your iPhone to listen to hi-res music!
An iem I like a lot, it delivers good bass and fairly good mid and treble too, i use it with a lotion paw s1 and spinfit 100 eartips.Worth every penny. Excellent value.
These IEMs live up to the name. The music sounds lively and precisely the way you want to hear it—a very close or almost Harman-curved sound signature. The only con is the plastic feeling of the shell and the cable and sticks a little out of the ear. Although, the most powerful in my collections to likes of Ikko Oh01, BQEYZ Summer, TruthEar Zero, and KZ EDX pro.
These IEMs kind of felt dull in the beginning but boy, they do not fail to amaze at all. Such a balanced sound signature, although not a wide soundstage but very enjoyable. These are available for 129$ on Linsoul and it is blessing we're getting it only for 49$ here in India.
