I was sick of seeing her using stock and 5 dollar earbuds, so I purchased the CX-500's off Amazon, and THEN found out there are apparently loads of fakes out there.
They arrive tomorrow. I have a few questions.
1. How can I be sure they're legit or not? I've heard fakes have less, lets call it, resolution on all the name/logo printings, are bass heavy, and make noise when the cord is disturbed. Any other giveaways? PLEASE help to this effect, I will post a picture of the packaging when it arrives.
2. I am poor and struggling to improve the audio quality of my life, and have owned only 2 pairs of decent cans so far, and 1 now dead Cowon. I've had Sennheiser HD485's and 595's, and she has NEVER had anything like them, but liked to borrow them alot. How will the CX-500's compare, if at all (praying they're real)?
3. Did I do good?
