Just found this thread after purchased a E17 off Amazon and will be fullfilled by Office Direct Sale INC.

  • Are they legit or should i cancel? I could buy them from J&R. Would that be a safer bet or am I just being a bit to paranoid? Thx for any reply.

Office Direct is our authorized distributor in U.S and there are not fake E17 by now. so don't worry about it.

What about GMARTGLOBAL?  World Class Inc?  These are the only sellers on Amazon that are fulfilled through Amazon that currently have the E6 in stock.  I'd like to order and use my Prime shipping to get it before I go out of town.

If Office Direct is authorized, why are they not listed on the Fiio site? Also, no response from my question about GMARTGLOBAL or World Class Inc yet. For a company that is trying to fight fake products, it would seem that you would update your site more often and respond to concerns from potential customers. I may avoid Fiio until these issues are under control.

I agree with semicoln..a bigger fuss should have been made public about who was selling fake fiios!

Hello,

 

I purchased an E11 from Sky Computer & CCTV, Inc  on amazon before viewing any of these threads. It was the cheapest shipped by amazon, so why not? I was unaware there were fakes floating around.

 

In looking it over, there may be a few things different from pictures I've found.

 

1) Compare the first picture in this review: http://www.head-fi.org/t/552605/fiio-e11-the-initial-impression-final-thought with mine:

 

 

* Notice that the barcode sticker does not match.

 

2) The battery is different. Compare with fiio's stock photo of the back cover off: http://www.fiio.com.cn//upFile/201159931781.jpg with the pretty design with mine:

 

 

* Notice that the battery designs do not match

 

3) My picture:

 

 

Compare against the other picture found in the head-fi review linked previously (direct link: http://i90.photobucket.com/albums/k240/ofey_s/FiiO/E11-11.jpg )

 

* The hex bolt on mine is flush, vs slightly skewed in the review

* circuit board right next to/on the right of the green piece mismatches slightly

* the metal prong on the far left of the picture is silvery in mine and copper in the head-fi review

 

4) Compare the volume knob numbering in the stock photo (http://www.fiio.com.cn//upFile/201157922312.jpg) with mine:

 

I assume both are set to "off", but they look a bit different. My zero appears smaller & is plainly visible, along with a slice of the '1', but the same can not be said of the stock photo.

 

 

---

 

All accessories look normal.

 

Are these differences just harmless production changes over the year it's been produced, or are these changes indicative of a fake?

Just took a look at my E6 I got from SMICORP off Amazon and it seems to be legit, corner loop is thin and there is a barcode on the packaging

Hi James, I wonder if you can clarify something for me. You say that miccastore.com is an authorized retailer in the US. They don't sell on Amazon, only thru their  miccastore.com website. The seller on Amazon with a similar name is "Micca Distributer". I contacted them asking if they were the same company as miccastore.com and they said no. Which one is the legitimate retailer? Thank you.
