I'm a new member here (joined a couple days ago) and I need your help in determining the legitimacy of these 'phones. I purchased them a couple weeks ago from Shoreline Music at Amazon.com, and there's something different about the exterior. As you can see below, the aluminum that houses the drivers is much shinier and more reflective than the ones that are in the picture I found online.
(What I have)
At first I thought these were either 325 or 325i, not 325is, but when I looked them up on Google they looked the same so the housing doesn't seem to have changed over the course of model improvement. In terms of sound--although I'm very new to the world of audiophilia (that just sounds weird, correct me if I should use another word)--these cans sounded superior to my Sony MDR-XB700, and they came in a sealed box, so they're probably real, although I can't be sure. Maybe I'm overreacting to something really small that I don't know about, but please help me out! I'm a noob :P Thanks.
