The Basshead Club - Page 487  

post #7291 of 11259

Anyone tried the fake IE80's? From what I heard from several users, the fake IE80's use the same speaker as the genuine IE80's, only the bass setting "knob" isn't working. I heard the genuine IE80's are pretty basshead, so it should be worth a try. And for like 30€ there is nothing to think about very_evil_smiley.gif

The IE80s have been faked? Wow, those used to be Sennheiser's flagship IEM, right?

 

EDIT: Oh. My. God. It's true!

 

They're here for about 50 bucks. I don't believe it. Of course, I saw pricier ones, priced at about 500+ dollars. This looks so convincing. If you've owned the originals, what do you think of this?:

If these sound as good as the originals, I'm getting them. I'd love to own a flagship, whether fake or not.

A genuine IE80 owner said they sound 95% the same, only the cable degrades the SQ and the bass knob isn't working. But some fake IE80 owners reported their bass knobs are working so I think these "fake IE80"s could be genuine but they didn't passed the quality controll.

 

Mine is going to arrive in about 1-2 weeks. If I would say I'm not excited, I would lie biggrin.gif

And I dunno if we should advertise such things here, as the company that builds the original IEM is on of the biggest site sponsors. Just thinking......

Hmm, well, you do have a point. However, this place isn't exactly for advertising that; the discovery thread is. But if you repost there, that might mean spam of all things. I guess we'll just back off from this now.

Sure, from eBay, maybe. But some sellers out here in China do sell the real deal. It's just that...

Thinking clearly.  NO ONE should support fraud that undermines honest, legitimate companies to support criminal enterprises who steal the work of others.

My thoughts exactly. For this reason I wouldn't buy a fake even if it would sound equally good for less.

Any company with a reputation for quality would be foolish to release a substandard product that represents their company to save a few dollars in material/manufacturing cost.  Sennheiser's reputation is worth much more than that. 

 

Would a Michelin rated restaurant serve burned or spoiled food at a discount so that it didn't go to waste?
