Fake Senn PX200

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Maybe this happens all the time, but I was a little surprised to discover that I'd purchased a fake pair of PX200s from eBay.

I wonder how many people have bought these fakes, and without a valid pair to compare to, just thought, 'wow, these just kinda suck...'. My coworker owns a pair, and we did a side by side comparison, and the differences in SQ are night and day. Build quality is more similar, but big differences are visible. Different texture in injection molded plastics, fakes are slippery and cheap feeling. Small things like bits of thread hanging out from seams, those type of things.

Anyway, if you plan to buy some on eBay and the picture has them in a little anti-static envelope, look closer at the details, and ask the seller about their return policy, etc.

Some details -

Cheap looking yellowish hinge:


Ill-fitting metal headband:


Baggy fabric on phones:

That's a great idea. Any suggestions on the Koss donor phones?
I'm thinking those kinda flimsy looking clipons...

Bought the fakes on eBay from some guy in Singapore who promptly got his account suspended. Seriously though, even though the end result is pretty crap-tastic, how much effort went into copying these phones, it's mind-boggling...

edit: Paid 30usd

probably not much effort is involved in copying them, since they are all made in China by now...... All you have to do is go the component supplier and ask to buy their seconds then stuff in a pair of generic drivers

Bummer

Hey,
Sorry to hear that you were robbed. That totally sucks.
I'll try to help heal your pain for you.
PM me your address and I'll send you my used pair for free.

How am I ever going to get rid of this pair of Bose?

Besides, how would he declare that on the customs sticker?
Dog's severed head Gift $5

You could try listing these on the FS forum (clearly labled, of course), maybe someone would be interested in a pair of fake Senns, you never know.

Hm. There's a Chinese restaurant around here that does the same thing...
