I received a pair of Ath-m50's (COILED CABLE) from ebay for ~$95 (Including Shipping). I cannot retrace the exact seller of the product, but the headphones were NOT from China, but either from Hong Kong or California. These headphones were bought around August, but what puzzles me is the color of the box.
From these videos and images :
, the color of the box is BLUE with a flap covering half of the headphones.
The box in which I received my headphones are instead, TEAL, and did not have a flap covering the front of the box. It also did not have the top part of the box, the "Hanger-like"flap used to hang the product on shelves, etc..
I remember the product description on Ebay stating that the product has the 1 year Audio Technica Warranty. I received that in the box, the leather carrying bag, the adapter, and manuals / other printed documents.
The left side of the headphones, just around the swivel area, there is a small circular dot that sticks out just a little bit.
I'm personally really satisfied with the audio quality, headphone construction, cable durability, etc.. , but just the strange color of the box and random dot on only one side of the headphones that really puzzles me. I currently do not have a picture of the box, but I will update my post as soon as I find it.
Anyone else have similar issues with the Audio Technica ATH-M50 Headphones?
I just got my M50 for $101 CDN ($99 USD) last week from a US seller, and it's legit. The only thing was I stupidly agreed to UPS shipping, and that cost me $57 CDN of brokerage fees.
>: ( so mad at UPS. Never again.
Anyhow, the new M50 box is teal like the quote said, but it still has the "hanger" flap at the top.
