Experience the power of engineering and great sound with the Raptgo Hook-X. It is equipped with a planar magnetic driver and piezoelectric (PZT) driver. Together, these drivers offer acoustic superiority and a harmonious tonality in an in-ear monitor.
Precise Planar Magnetic Drivers
A planar magnetic driver has a lower mass and strong magnetic field that offers extreme responsiveness compared to dynamic or balanced armature drivers. The 14.2mm planar magnetic driver uses 2 powerful N52 magnets with a thin ribbon suspended in between through which the electrical currents run. This ensures an incredibly punchy and impactful sub-bass response with an extended frequency response from 20Hz to 40kHz.
Perfect Piezoelectric Drivers
The piezoelectric driver offers an improved treble response, better sonic resolution and air (unparalleled to typical BA and electrostatic drivers) through the vibration of piezo elements within the housing. After cooperating with a team with military engineering backgrounds, Raptgo designed a double-sided layering system consisting of 18 ceramic piezo elements. Each element undergoes over 100 acoustic shock simulation experiments and the drivers are hand-tested as they go through 52 complicated production processes.
Open-back Design for an Open Sound
The Hook-X features an open-back design for max airflow and a wider soundstage (compared to regular IEMs). It’s designed to offer the planar magnetic headphone experience in an IEM. The open-back design also reduces pressure buildup to decrease hearing fatigue.
Designed for Comfort
After a variety of simulation experiments to match the typical ear angle and wearing experience, the Raptgo Hook-X’s housings were designed. An internal housing structure and acoustic damping system are used to achieve a balanced target tuning, a rarity among planar-magnetic IEMs. These are crafted from high-precision 5-axis CNC machining for uniform acoustic chambers. This is further refined demonstrating high-class workmanship and acoustic tastefulness.
The Raptgo Hook-X comes with a 0.78mm 2-pin detachable cable. The cable consists of OCC silver-plated coaxial shielded wires for better transparency and sound output. It terminates into a switchable plug system where you can swap between 3 connectors - 4.4mm balanced, 2.5mm balanced and 3.5mm unbalanced.

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.
