Oh ok sorry. :)

I have no idea, but there are so many fakes out there that it would be impossible to control.

Although I agree with the above post, I will say that fake Beats Pro's, along with the black studio's, are the hardest to distinguish from photos alone. Although the site looks legit, you never know.

i already googled it myself before it said it is a non-counterfeit product but the price just seems quite low thats all cause the prices here are different to America also the pictures on the Dick Smith website wont show the "B" Logo on the headphones or even the bags ?

Well I just looked at the Beats site (Lord please forgive me? ='/) and i couldn't find "Dicksmith" or any varient of it as an authorized dealer. You could take a shot at them and try your luck but keep in mind 2 things. Firstly, you get what you payed for. If the price seems a bit outrageous, it more than likely is an outrageous product (IE: Counterfeit) and Secondly, be aware of your return policy. If there is a "no refund" policy or a "store credit" only policy, then you might not want to take a shot at it, but if you have something such as a 30 day policy to return for a full cash refund, open box of course, then what have you got to lose.
