The box is pretty simple, the mascot girl is on the front cover and there are a graph and specifications of the IEM at the back. The size of the box itself is not very small but not that big either.
In the box:
- Silver Plated 4N-Litz OFC
- A small black pouch
- 3 pairs of silicone tips (S, M, L)
- Manuals & QC card
Built & Fit:
The shell of SSR is made of liquid metal alloy housing with a glossy finish. It has some weight on it since it’s metal, but it’s still very lightweight when you wear them on your ear compared to their bigger brothers like KXXS/Starfield. With its shape resembling the FLC 8s or a heart, safe to say they are very comfortable and easy to get the right fit with. They also will not cause any fatigue or pain if you wear them for a long time.
However, the isolation on SSR is not as good as other IEMs with bigger housing. Here the isolation level is more or less similar to a bullet-style IEM.
Cable & Eartips
The SPC is really nice for the price, it’s soft, no micro-phonic nor does it retains memory when you roll them up. It has a tiny red ring near the right 2-pin connector for L/R markings and a rubber-made round splitter, which IMO, is better than the one on the Starfield or the B2 since it has no sharp edges. But just like other Moondrop cables, it doesn’t have a chin slider.
The silicone tips included are similar, or maybe the same as the one provided on Starfield. They are usable out of the box, but for better fit and comfort, I would suggest doing some tips rolling.
It’s tiny. Maybe even a bit too tiny. Even the og Spaceship with a $20 price tag has a much bigger pouch than the SSR. But despite the tiny size, it still can be used since the cable is pretty soft to be rolled up, so just roll it smaller & it will fit into the pouch nicely.
In terms of the material, the outer was kind of the water-resistant type instead of cloth material like the og, which can help to protect the IEM from an accidental splash of water.
