I would cautiously say, that they might be fake
Are they from aliexpress, with no box and no case?

Hi thankyou for the reply! 😁

My friend said they once bought his andromeda "used" and without box nor case at all (only the IEM and the cable) - yes it's getting more suspicious.

He had no clue whether the previous owner bought from aliexpress or anyhere else. *as far as I can remember, he bought his used andromeda for "only" under 550 USD from the previous owner.

Okay so far, all the signs pointing more towards the conclusion that his andromeda is fake 😅😅

Does anybody can tell me is this legit or not?

The screws on the IEM in the photo you posted don't look right to me, which would indicate that tit's not a genuine product.

Below's a close-up of mine (definitely legit as I bought mine from the only official retailer that existed here at the time).

The screws are definitely suspect, as they look like the ones on the fakes. Can you show a picture of the nozzles and the cable socket?

it does not come with the stock cable, no other accessories. And actually i returned it to the previous owner since he is not sure whether his iem is fake or legit.
In term of sound, it is quite good with very impact bass response for a full ba iems, wide and surreal soundstage.

That's another clue for them not being legit. In case of doubt, it's definitely always better not to get the product.

In my experience with several hundred IEMs, a large, three-dimensional soundstage is usually (although not exclusively) mainly created by specific tuning cues (recessed upper mids/presence range, elevated upper treble/super treble (the latter, in my experience, is especially responsible for the perception of spatial width); these tuning cues don't even have to be all that intense to lead to an audible effect on soundstage dimensions).
