If it has a S/N Sticker you are good. 

 

Also there should be a date of authenticity in the manual.

SMI Corporation is genuine, then. Date of authenticity is there and none of the counterfeit indicators listed in the first post.

The fake one is exactly what it looks like from the main post. There's no sound quality improvements except a good bass enhancement. However, if anyone can tell the sound quality differences between the real and fake one as I am planning to reorder an authentic one, or I might have to upgrade to a E7 or E11....

 

The only quality difference you'll hear is if your source is unable to drive your headphones adequately in the first place.  Otherwise, it's just a volume increase.

man this is a disaster! I was about to purchase e6 but I wanted to read a review on this and look what I came across!

This is a very useful info thank you.

 

So there are e1 - e6 fakes but not e7 or the above?

Yes, we heard about fake E7 but not confirm yet, anyway, it will be safe to buy from our authorized sales agents or distributor , you can check it from where to buy in our official website www.fiio.com.cn

please note: its www.amazon.com, NOT www.amazan.de or www.amazon.co.uk. We are www.schopfhandel.com on amazon.de and co.uk, and we sell in Germany, Swiss, Austria and some parts of Europe. There are no fakes in Europe. And we promise: we will eliminate them...

Just recieved a E7 today. The most alarming thing about the device is the case, I would have thought they'd cut holes in the case to make way for the buttons;

Otherwise it's a seemingly well made piece of kit. It's possible it had a S/N sticker on the side of the box and I've peeled it off. I tend to do that with stickers.  I bought it from RC Sales on amazon.co.uk. They've only racked up 141 rating's in the past 12 months, hardly big time. I would appreciate it if someone from FiiO told how I can tell if mines fake.

 

Thanks,

Paul

I wouldn't worry about it being fake Paul. I order my e7 about a year ago and that is the exact case mine came with. The rubber is not cut out so as to protect the chrome buttons underneath methinks. I sort of like it.   ;)

RSA Shadow and Headamp Pico Slim, if you're looking for ~$300 amps. Loved the way my GR07s sounded out of the slim.
