Mine did that also, they may be real. Mine had a -very- warm sound, and tended to be hot on the ears after awhile. very high sensitivity, too.

Are those wire splices? perhaps its a bad refurb job.

i never buy anything from the internet,because i'm affraid that someone will sell me something not good.
I suggest you before you buy something from ebay etc.always try if you can find it elsewhere(not from internet)
Unfortunatelly i can't help you,hope you find a solution,good luck.

At that price i would think they are fake, the chinese trade forums are full of them.
The wiring is a BIG giveaway, Sony would not have bare wire open like that or spice cables QC would pick that up.
The ones on the trade forums are very good copies , may be impossible to tell , except that they will sound bad usually.

I tend to avoid even looking at internet, just in case!

i dont really know... there is only 3 tiny wires soldered onto a tiny board and reinforced with glue. i dont know what you mean by splices, but i can actually touch the copper wire if thats what you mean
