I've researching and I can't believe how good the fakes are. There are just a couple of small differences between the genuine and counterfeit. I'm wondering if I should do a "genuine" unboxing? There are so many unboxing videos on YouTube, but some are fake MIXR but the buyer did not know or disclosed in the video.
Yeah, I remember reading somewhere that since launch the Beats headphones very quickly eclipsed the ESW9 and V900 as the most faked headphones in the history of the world. And the fakes are really quite well done (as fakes go) at getting the looks right, because most of them are hawked through craigslist, out of people's cars, and so on - it's just disgusting how obsessed people are with these things, and how they just stop thinking when it comes to buying them. Monster was maintaining a list of all of the known fake distributors online, I think they gave up - the final list I saw was like 10 pages.
I say, if you can do an unboxing and do it justice, go for it. But don't be surprised when some kid wants to bite your face off and insist his new toy that he got for $20 out of the back of some guy's Honda is legit.
