Yes, the whole Turbine lineup has fakes including the MD.

Awesome post-thanks so much. This will be useful Monday! I'm meeting with a guy who is selling is Coppers for only $50 because he 'got them as a gift'. We'll see, if they're real I'm super lucky! And thanks to you, I'll be able to identify them properly :)

Fake, 1/4" adapter in the photo is a giveaway.

Just check the grills on the your golds and the accessories. These are the few obvious pointers which shows whether they are real or fake.

Apparently, there hasn't been any reports on fake golds in this forum. (I bought them for $179 from eBay, I thought that they were fake but apparently they were genuine.)

Do Monster Turbine fakes show similar traits as these fake Coppers? Like...do the same differences hold between the real and fake boxes?

post #53 of 116

Fake Monster Turbines do have some of these traits in common. Particularly the mesh grill facing in rather than popping out, the lack of a serial number at the splitter, and the narrower, shallower diagonal cuts in the metal. I have also heard that they feel heavier, but I cannot personally attest to that.

They don't seem like fakes to me. The seller also seems to be authentic and has 100% positive feedback.

There is really no way to tell as it is only the box. also 100% feedback doesn't mean jack especially when 95% of the gen pop arent aware of fakes or how to spot them, nor can they hear a difference most of the time. I would never buy unless I can see all the accessories, particularly the 1/4 adapter, how the box opens up/colour of the box inside, package with "Supertips" marked on them, and if possible, the grill of the phones themselves. I have seen those "Top Rated Power Sellers" selling fakes and it is so damn obvious with teh fake adapter. But that just goes to show you how most don't know how to distinguish b/w fake/real.

Yeah, I think I'll stay away and maybe wait for someone to sell some or buy some off of Amazon when I get some more money. Thanks for the advice rangerid.

one of the ways to tell is by looking at the shrinkwrap. based on the monsters I've had, all of them seem to have a little hole at the top where the tab for the shelf hooks sticks out(they are exposed). on the fakes, the shelf tabs are sealed inside the shrinkwrap

Also, don't forget, guys. the pictures you see on eBay could easily have been copied off another listing. Just because the seller posts pictures of real Turbine Coppers, doesn't mean that what he's sending you are real. 

post #60 of 116

Here's an eBay listing where the guy basically admits he's selling fakes:

 

http://cgi.ebay.com/Monster-Turbine-Pro-Copper-In-Ear-Headphone-NIB-Sealed-/260730337640?pt=Other_MP3_Player_Accessories&hash=item3cb4bd3968

 

Would you know these were fake from the pictures if he didn't admit it in the body of his ad?
