Honestly, I don't know why you're so insistant on getting the Beats.  The Phiatons are better in every way and cost less too.

Theres only 3 phiaton listings on ebay and none of them ship to new zealand.

I don't know about the box, but I don't believe there is a Ferrari Red edition.  There is a ProductRed Edition of the Solos though.  The box looks like it has a pic of the solos on it.

Oh, well that's different then.  Either way, those are most likely fake.  You shouldn't buy Beats from ebay, fakes are rampant there.

You could get the Phiatons there, but they do cost more than anywhere else.

If you really wanted the beats they're there too, but they cost even more.  Still, it's best to stay away from ebay if you're gonna get anything that has lots of fakes.

Of course he'll say it's real, he's trying to make you buy it.  Don't trust what sellers say on ebay, they're just trying to make you buy what they're selling, hoping you can't tell the difference between real and fake.  Still though, the chances they're fake is pretty high and it's not worth the trouble returning them and getting a refund if they are.

"They are real bc they are from Best Buy (an authorized dealer) and they are covered by warranty with monster. These were a limited edition. They are like the red ones but a deeper red and the "b" logo is black and silver instead of red and white like the ones that are out now. Also the Ferrari edition YOU are talking about is fake (counterfeit, NOT real). They are NOT authentic dre beats so you avoided getting ripped off(Ferrari with logo, Lamborghini, Kobe, Lebron, or those crystal ones are all fake). There are currently only 4 authentic colors (black, white, red, and a Limited Edition Boston Red Sox Edition). The ones you won were discontinued and replaced by the red ones"

 

Please someone help me before i pay for a fake set :S

Yeah...that site is definitely fake too.  As nice as it would be to get them for cheap, you just can't trust these sites.  Fake ones are extremely common, some people tried to sell me some here in China, and nearly every store that sells headphones has fake Beats.

Agreed, that site reeks of fraud.

yes i know the site is fake, but what about the ones on my frist post

post #13 of 36

monster has never authorized a ferrari red version. 

 

These are the models monster has authorized (include special editions)

 

 

Over-ear headphones
  • Studio (also available Red Sox edition)
  • Pro
On-ear headphones
In-ear headphones

 

source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beats_by_Dr._Dre

 

There's also the thing..They have NEVER done a Ferrari Red Edition. I'm more then sure. I go to a notorious fake market just to wander and you can find them everywhere. They're 100 USD each there. And that's if you know the people who work there. Otherwise it's 140 USD.

 

The red edition is not "in" with the counterfeiters so they actually have fewer of those and more of beats "lambo" edition and "Ferrari" edition.

The YAO Edition is an Exception. I have yet ot find a reliable seller for the Beats Yao Edition (that aree fake)

It's a chinese website. I live in China. I know damn well what's real and fake. The motto here is "what can be faked will be faked. Only if you can make money from it."
