Dr. Dre's Beats PRO - Real vs Fake?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

 

The Dr. Dre's Beats Pro recently came out and bought a used pair on eBay. However, I am worried that they may be fake. Have you guys heard of any fake Pro models around? And if so, do you know how to be able to spot them?

 

Thanks!

Well, here's one guy's excellent and throughly detailed examination of both a 100% authentic set of Monster Beats Studio and a fake one he bought on eBay.

 

I would think a lot of the stuff that gives those fakes away could apply to yours, even though they are different model headphones.  It's mainly the packaging and accessories (or lack thereof) that gives it away as being fake, instead of actually listening to the headphones themselves.

The problem is that the auction doesn't come with the box. I wish it had a battery cover or something else to compare it to much like how the fake studio ones don't have a serial number.

Then I would think it's quite likely you got a pair of fakes.

 

Regarding anything electronic related on eBay, or anywhere else online, I only go after the ones that include all packaging and accessories (like if you were to actually buy it brand new in a store).

 

Otherwise, you take the risk of buying a fake item, especially on eBay.
