Follow’s Moondrop’s VDSF Tuning Curve

CHU follows the Moondrop VDSF target response with a carefully controlled acoustic coupling cavity. The VDSF target response is a parametric target where sound quality is controlled by composite elements. It ensures we get a high-resolution sound output with an open soundstage and crisp clarity throughout the frequency range.

 

New Ergonomic Design For A Comfortable Fit

Moondrop Chu adopts a finely crafted metal housing that is manufactured from alloys using melting and injection molding technologies. The end result is a beautiful shell with a stable and robust build that also has an ergonomic shape for a comfortable wearing experience.
