Has the fake ath-m50 arrived? - Page 19

post #271 of 381


The headphone in the pictures above look real, to me.

 

Packaging is correct, grey coloured logo on the headband, cup internals and drivers look legitimate as well.

Hi,

 

First post here. bigsmile_face.gifRecently won these on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180707383703&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT#ht_536wt_1139

 

There isn't many pictures, but any experienced ebayers here to advise me on whether they are real? The seller hasn't replied me for a few days already, and I'm kind of worried. Thanks.

I purchased mine from Amazon some months ago, they came in a white box, and are real, however the most important thing is the actual headphones, you can never be certain until you get it, best bet is buying from official Audio Technica distributors.

That ebay listing does look suspect, no returns accepted, feedback score of 5, could well be friends or own accounts, the stitching on the headband looks crooked, the headphone jack looks like it's only a 1/4" plug. TBH if you're selling these on ebay and they are real, you would list a lot of photos of your item to help prove to the buyer and gain their trust.

 

I wouldn't bother trying to save a few £/$'s risking a lot of grief.

Thanks for the reply. The problem here is that I have actually paid the seller... I guess I will ask for a refund when a week has passed (he still probably hasn't shipped the item)... Anyway, where can I get the best deal for the ATH-M50s? Is Amazon the best place to go? The cheapest I can find an authorised dealer would be 120 dollars on sciscat.com.

Hi everybody, 

I just recently post bought one on www.thepwnageshop.com . The price is 80$ with free shipping. I decided to buy it hastily before knowing this thread. Then I ask the seller about the box and the warranty. He said that he usually ship without the box to save shipping cost for him but he will ship mine with the box and the warranty card is in the box as well. I am a little bit nervous about this and with the warranty, would it be a real one?

post #276 of 381

Well that price is just too suspect to be real in the first place.

 

However they are based ine the US, but it says delivery takes 2-3 weeks, so most likely it's coming from China, so fake...

 

Sorry dude, hope it's real, and it gets sorted out.. atsmile.gif

So I bought from Amazon recently and it was from a store and was shipped with Amazon.

 

I recently took of the ear pads and found that there were stickers on this part of the headphone:

I haven't opened it up yet since these screws are screwed in VERY tight.

Is having the sticker a problem?

post #278 of 381

depends exactly what you mean? well really you need to open them up and take a photo of the drivers for a confirmation...

post #279 of 381

Since it probably doesn't make a difference, I'll try opening it up... But the screws are really hard to move XD

 

Be back in a few minutes

Guys

please be weary of any "used" items you buy from ebay that do not include box or receipt in the USA.

 

I am a great seller. II have bought and sold two soccer jerseys in the past. One was genuine and the other was fake. My two listings were detailed to the point of me showing pictures and the receipt to show how genuine it was for the genuine jersey. I also made sure to bold the fake one as fake on my listing.

 

Please be weary about stuff like this.

It is not hard getting a cheap-o fake ath-m50 and say you are from the usa while not stating whether the item is fake or not to sell it for a higher price or recoup a loss =/

 

Please 

stick to Authorized Resellers to be 100% certain whether an item is fake or not

i bought mine at proaudiomart an authorized reseller

lol those screws must be pretty darn tight, or you're a weakling :P or they're fake and you're in shock basshead.gif

Opened up the headphones up. Here's the pic of the driver:

Legit?

 

I am certain it's legit now since it does have the yellow circuit board w/ sticker.

post #283 of 381

looks legit dude, you would have been better off opening the left side though... as there's more cables to show

post #284 of 381
mine also yellow board with sticker and came with a white box so i suppose mine are legit smily_headphones1.gif
