Beware of fake Beats Mixr headphone

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 

Hi All

I recently bought a new model of Beats Mixr heaphone. I compared to my friend's headphone which he bought earlier this year (2012).

We noticed that two headphones are in big difference. We went to authorized distributor and compare with their sample, Finally and unfortunately my headphone is a big Fake.

I share the information here and hope it will be helpfull to everyone.

Unfortunately, there are many fakes out there, so it is really a case of "buyer beware".

 

Good information and clear pictures with concise descriptions.

I'll just stay away from any headphone Monster produces.

Very useful info, thanks. Not that I'd ever use it.

This is why you should ALWAYS buy from an authorized dealer. People never learn.

Willing to bet the fake was bought due to some absurdly low price. You think you get a deal... you get crap.

Regardless of whether or not I'd ever actually purchase the headphone in question, these threads are always interesting and a great service to the headphone community.  Thank you soundtech for sharing you findings with us! :)

 

There is, however, one burning question that is still unanswered: how does the sound compare between the original and fake?

I think the fake should sound better then original haha so be glad there are fake ones cause when you buy beats your money is waisted anyway why in the world would you buy such a crap headphone...??!!

This is kind of what I was thinking.

Do they sound similar? I have read some of the fakes sound near identical

It really doesn't matter what they sound like. The people buying them probably could care less about sound.

The fakes indeed might sound better. The only thing people buying these are looking for is the logo. Fake or not they won't notice.

 

A guy at work wants to buy the big expensive Beats. He told me "If people buy them that much they have to be good".

 

OK. Whatever.

You know, these really don't sound as bad as a lot of other Beats products. I tried them in the official store (SoHo) out of my iPhone directly, and was pleasantly surprised that they weren't a total pile. They're not "good for the money" but they're definitely a few steps above the other Beats I've heard in both construction and sound quality. Smoother and less muddy.

 

Still, don't buy them. Deal?

my fake Beats Mixr headphone base is too strong, and with strong bumping on the ears. can not withstand it for long time.
