mmm... the product isn't fake, they get the items from v-moda in bulk so it's different packaging. I've purchased the m100 a few times before, once from v-moda direct when they first came out, and once from another seller on amazon & they never came w/ a product registration card/SN sticker. dunno what's up w/ that. I'm actually kinda curious about the product registration card & SN sticker b/c I've never seen em on any of the V-Moda's I had.
sry if massdrop is an inappropriate topic to bring up. I know it's not allowed on the Deals threads but I rmb discovering the website from head-fi discussion, so I figured it'll be alright. cheers.
I can guarantee V-MODA is not selling bulk headphones to Massdrop for the purposes of reselling at a discount. Maybe they told you that, but that is not what's happening. They are almost certainly coming from a distributor who is removing any items that contain the serial number in order to not have the inventory tracked back to them. There is simply no incentive for V-MODA to remove the serial numbers themselves to sell to MD.
