Did yours come in a package or a plastic bag?
mine comes in a package though but i threw it away.

Rookie mistake. ;)

 

Always keep the packaging, especially from IEMs/HPs. Since you arent always getting the original product.

Yes, if you paid far too little (far too good to be true) for them, then they are fake.

Look at this:

http://konovalof.ru/yamaha-eph-100-original-vs-fake/

Mainly look at the machining marks, genuine has a lot more (smaller) tooling marks

so there are these yamahas floating around ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/Yamaha-EPH100-In-Ear-Earphones-Headphones-/272135233517?hash=item3f5c861fed:g:GeQAAOSwu4BVosCL

are they too cheap to be true?

Why take the chance? As has literally been stated at least a dozen times on here, either get them from a registered distributor like Audio Affair or get a legit second hand pair from the forums...

^This!

 

I still dont get why people take chances on buying cheap fakes...

 

From my own experience, I've bought 2 pairs both from Audio Affair and both were genuine! Since they are an official Yamaha distributor, and the their prices are pretty good too.

....and right on topic, yesterday my second pair arrived. They were purchased from a forum (not here) and are genuine, previous owner bought them from Audio Affair as well. I'd regretted trading my first pair!

Nice mate, you're on your second pair now like me. Honestly I don't think I'll ever get rid of these.

Yep, and second pair of tenores smily_headphones1.gif
Had a three way battle with the GR07 last night for a bit of fun. Honestly think everyone should have one of these three in their collection, or better still, all three

Does someone know by chance how do the Yams compare to Philips SHE9850?  I'm looking for a quick replacement, and the Yams are available locally.  Although I enjoyed the typical BA traits in SHE9850, I'd fine with a DD as long as its warmish and on the quick side, but still forgiving.  Also, I'd like to avoid experiencing sibilance at any costs, including a top-end roll-off.  I'm also considering RHA MA 750, so I asked over at their thread as well.

No experience with the Philips but the Yams will be right up your street for what you want. So would the Tenore

How is Tenore comparing with YAM EPH 100? Is it very similar SQ? I am planning to get either of them. I am very gentle on my gear so durability is not main concern. My main interest is sound quality and comfortability. It would be very helpful if you can share your thoughts/impression. Thank you. :)
