A bit interjection with my current SSR.
Some people gonna kill me for this but oh well

Moondrop SSR EQ.jpg

Here is my Moondrop SSR equalization which hopefully solve some issue with the shouty upper midrange that some have, Target used is based on one of my preference curve

Filters:
Type: Peak FR: 2800Hz SPL: -5.3dB Q: 2
Type: Peak FR: 6000Hz SPL: -2.5dB Q: 1.3
Type: Low Shelf FR: 600Hz SPL: -1.5dB Q: 0.7
Type: High Shelf FR: 7000Hz SPL: -2.7dB Q: 0.8

The reason for the low shelf: It's too warm without it
The reason for the high shelf: This does kill off some treble but without this I noticed some grainy artifact in some vocal songs that I usually listens. So I decided to add it.
Both of the shelf filter varies so you will have to experiment the value on your own. Some might just need a peak filter rather than the high shelf but I was just lazy.

Feel free to try em out. I have tested this on 2 sample with nearly identical FR which seems to work well (Did some minor tweak with the 3rd, 4th filter for S2 but ultimately not necessary)

Great work. I use the autoeq project to build geq, peq and autoeq files for all my iems and earbuds with the goal of consistency in playback across my laptop, desktop, and multiple phones.

I used to use it, but now since I got my own tool I can just do it manually, didn't want to overdo some stuff with eqing lol

I find that the B2 needs more power than its impedance and sensitivity imply. Where normally on my BTR5 I listen to most of my IEMs at volume 13-15, depending on the ambient noise level, the B2 needs at least 19.

Hey! So, Blessing2's impedance is 22Ω but sensitivity is 117dB/V which actually equates to 102 dB/mW. You'll see most brands mentioning sensitivity in dB/mW and not dB/V. 102 dB/mW is actually slightly lesser than other multi-BA IEMs from brands like Fearless, BGVP, Tansio Mirai, etc. Hence the need for a bit more power. :)

This week i got the JVC FD-X01. The funny thing is, i tried after the face mask alcohol pads that come with Display protectors. They sounded better but i not wanted make a topic before i heard the JVCs now. The thing is.. Compared to the JVCs the KXXS with mod sounds a lot better. I attached the pictures.
Edit: I tried on LG G8/V30/V35 and Shanling M6 Pro.
The Tips are from a Sony IER-Z1R which have Spiral Dots++ now. As headphone i have AKG K812.
I just write this to show i have things to sort it in. Teared down to only the musicality at sane volumes, the KXXS is better than all others in my opinion. All have their qualities but just these have certain strengths none of the others have. Without big weaknesses.
Edit2: I started with LZ-A3S and Kanas Pro which a friend has right now

The Illumination is up for pre-sale for 4999CNY (~$740USD) in China and they already shared the marketing material:

Patent design 11mm high performance moving coil unit. (Patent No.: 2L202020277412.0) 1.6T natural magnetic flux density N52 magnet external magnetic magnetic circuit, precision CNC high permeability magnetic circuit coaxial 7 through holes + yellow steel independent rear cavity design, precise control of the resonance frequency imported from Japan 0.035mm diameter ultra-fine CCAW voice coil, lightweight suspension system. The independent copper suspension support is designed to reduce magnetic leakage, high transduction efficiency and lightweight design, which is the basis for great dynamics and good sound quality.

Patented acoustic coupling cavity structure (Patent No.: 202010157930.3) The front cavity structure designed based on the resonance principle can suppress the undesirable resonance that causes the treble burr. The special pressure relief structure eliminates standing waves while controlling the low-frequency response and transient. Brings a smooth full-band response.

The cursor is equipped with a coaxial structure cable with ultra-low impedance, using a 6N single crystal copper core and a copper silver-plated shielding layer to bring a clean and transparent sound. The original line comes with a convenient and replaceable plug (see the manual for the plug connection direction), whether it is 3.5mm single-ended, 2.5mm or 4.4mm balanced, it can be easily adapted. Standard coaxial cable with replaceable plug single crystal copper inner core copper silver-plated shielding layer (patent number ZL202020277409 9)
