Cobra SSR 80
Cobra SSR 80 is currently among the cheapest reliable product on the market. It features a very compact design.

Cobra SSR 80 features a wide UltraBright Data Display which is able to show multiple radar band detection, along with each own signal strength on a 5-bar graph indicator that provides the relative proximity to the source. The contrast and brightness levels are also perfect to provide an easy convenient reading. In addition, Cobra SSR 80 has already been equipped with LaserEye 360-degree detection, auto mute, safety alert, and city/highway modes.

Cobra XRS 9370
On the other hand, Cobra XRS 9370 is actually also a compact radar and laser gun detector, though it is slightly bulkier than Cobra SSR 80. It also features a wide color display screen that is very easy and convenient to read. However, it has replaced the graph indicators with a number indicator instead. Cobra XRS 9370 has also been equipped with the Xtreme Range Superheterodyne technology to provide an extended detection range. This way, you can be alerted from a longer distance, buying you some more time to react. In addition, Cobra XRS 9370 has also been armed with more additional features, including tone alert, auto/manual mute, safety alert, Dim Modes, City/Highway Modes, and most notably POP mode and Ku-band detection. Cobra XRS 9370 is immune to both VG-2 and Spectre technologies.

In the end, both products are excellent. However, we recommend you to choose Cobra XRS 9370. It comes with the ability to detect POP guns and Ku-band radar guns, giving you more protection when you travel to other places where these technologies are being used.
