They are from China and the price is ridiculously low, so almost certainly fake.

Hi silvercats, 

 

Please buy your Sennheiser headphones from an authorized dealer. Sales through a non-authorized channel are not typically eligible for warranty, especially if they are counterfeit.

they are that price because they are fakes.

 

Skip them and go for the Ultimate Ears 200. They are ~$20 and are probably by far the best IEM at that price mark.

1.It is shiny as in original ones and logo is almost perfect

2.Logo is not well designed as I see.So it is kind of a fake?

3.it has a small space between the corner and inner as in original ones I believe

4.It is joined by a plastic one ,not a metal one 

 

 

So what do you think?

They are fake. The lettering on the tag of the bag is not right and the pin in the clip is plastic.  The counterfeiters sometimes purchase parts from the same suppliers who supply the original manufacturers, that is why the logo on the earbud is perfect.  Request your money back in full from the seller.  If they give you a problem, post negative feedback to alert others and file a claim.
