I reported them to Monster = They now have removed all their Monster products.
Before you state the obvious and say:
You bought it from eBay, I didn't
Here is where I bought it from
For £189. Yes they were B-Grade, but that doesn't explain why:
-An extra set of comply tips (T-400's)
-BOTH the SUPER TIPS sets missing
-Clearly the earphones have been used for a long period of time (signs of wear and tear on box + cases + earphones)
-Missing over-the-ear strain relief holders
When Amp3 state that:
"This means that the product's packaging has been opened or the packaging is slightly damaged but the product is in full working condition. A B-GRADE unit is supplied fully boxed with all packaging and accessories. B-Grade products are supplied with the full manufacturers’ warranty as standard."
I Like Amp3, but no wonder why they aren't authorised dealers...
Someone probably returned them and replaced them with fakes.
SQ isn't good either - comparing with the Golds I bought from Amazon + my C710's
Feels like deja-vu. I bought some set of IE8's from Amazon, and the seal was broken, and now I receive some fake set of coppers - well done amp3...
And to be honest, if I had said I bought these from eBay, 100% of you would say they are fake. So pelase see the pictures, and see the videos, and let me know what you guys think.
Is it normal that the coppers have/are: (answer is no to most if no all of them):
-Shorter in length
-Have a wire that's HALF the diameter of the golds
-The coppers have a longer jack
-Driver unit is in and not "out"
-Grooves are not as deep
-Turbine is spelt without the "T" being shown properly
-The packaging has a yellow line around it ( at the back)
-Half the amount of tips etc...
-Missing over the ear strain relief
-No cleaning cloth
-Missing manuals - especially the one about warranty (2 leaflets)
-Weigh almost 2x the amount vs the golds
All these thing scream to me fake, let alone their sound to be over bassy and not really precise - yeah I'm talking about the coppers = shocked much? Yeah that's exactly what I thought...
