Has the fake ath-m50 arrived? - Page 22

post #316 of 381


Why would it get him banned? Where do most fake products come from? He's just putting the puzzles together for people to see when purchasing headphones and making sure they're not fakes. To everyone else, i would suggest buying them off amazon.

Hey guys,

 

Is it possible nowadays to buy M50 for less then 159$ from an authorized dealer? Coz I haven't found any...

 

159$ is quite expensive IMHO.

 

Someone posted these  can be bought for 120 or so. However, I want the coiled cable...

The M50's are NOT worth $160. I got em for $120 less than a year ago, that's the ballpark price for what it's worth. The price is inflated as hell as of right now.

Soundprofessionals have em for around ~140. Not great but not bad.

post #320 of 381

does anyone have a list of who is on the official Audio Technica dealer's list? Is Jaben on the list?

post #321 of 381

the AT's authorized dealer list:http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/site/1e22eec97c088a8b/index.html

 

sry, it was list of US dealers only, however, they are based in Singapore (and they appear on that list:http://www.audio-technica.com.sg/our_dealers.php)

Thanks - however, I bought mine in from a Jaben in Hong Kong.

 

Jaben in Singapore is listed as an 'authorized dealer', not an 'authorized chain store', therefore I'm assuming that only the Jaben in Singapore is authorized.

 

Hong Kong/China doesn't even appear in the list of countries with authorized dealers, so I'm assuming the Jaben in Hong Kong is NOT authorized, and the M50 I bought from them could still be fake?

For anyone looking to pick up a pair of the ath-m50s, coiled or straight, take a look at proaudio on Ebay. Their official company is BIG TIME AUDIO INC, which can be found on Audio-Technica's authorized seller's list. I wasn't about to spend the $159 which has now become the standard price. They do accept offers, I was declined at an offer of 120, but 130 sealed the deal. I have yet to receive the pair, yet their reputation seems to speak for itself.

Do you guys think the silver and blue LE M-50's are being faked yet? I purchased mine like 1 or 2 months ago.

That's pretty much when they came out, so very unlikely.

post #327 of 381

Do you think my m50 is fake? What made me think they were is because the "R" logo and the "Audio Technica" logo is not perfect. The R logo is not centered and the "Audio Technica" is slanted slightly at the headband. I also got the folded chinese manual too. I bought mine from Kijiji.

 

Here are the pictures of my headphone.

Those headphones have a green board but mine is yellow.

Hey people, I Bought a pair from Amazon.

Everything Checks out OK

Packaging

The stitching

The Sound Quality

 

Opened the Driver Casing

The Circuit Board was Gold and Grey as it should be

But...No Sticker

Should I be worried?
