AKG K702 65th Anniversary Edition - Page 206

It is totally nonsense. If it were fake they could have printed made in Austria any where you like.

Oops, didn't realize he had an actual picture of the "Made in China" print on his headphones.  Looked like a stock photo from a retailer.

Yeah, if *I* were making a fake, I'd make it a point to say it's from Austria. The fact that it says it's from China, makes me believe they're legit, as it looks like AKG is shifting it's headphone production to China, aside from it's newest lines.

When I see that coming from you, I get a bad feeling... like you're close to selling all your stuff for an HD800. tongue.gif

That was meant to be a sneaky/evil face like you were making counterfeit AKGs.

 

This is the face to watch out for:

It wouldnt be the first time that a counterfeit product screws up on something simple.

 

You can pick up any counterfeit product and list at least a few ways on how you would have made it a better counterfeit.

 

Will be interesting to see what AKG or whatever customer service he contacts, says about this.

 

By the way, any chance you could tell us the serial number or what the serial number starts with?

 

Mine is 0054xx for example.

You got ripped off. Amazon sellers aren't authorized dealers (usually). Amazon ITSELF is, but anyone can sell through amazon.

If its made in China, I'd say its definitely a fake...

 

 

A fake? What reason do you have to believe this is a fake headphone?

On the box of the K702 65th Anniversary Edition, the first thing listed under "PRODUCT FEATURES"

Quote:
 >Limited Edition
hand-crafted in Vienna, Austria with highest attention to detail.

 

Also, third-party sellers on Amazon sell counterfeit stuff under the legitimate product page all the time.

Check out "Furminator" on amazon.com. Its a $50 metal comb used for pets. Its sold there by third parties for like $20.

Look in the comments and several people talk about how theirs were obviously counterfeit.

So you don't really have any proof, just speculation? Definitely usually implies some kind of solid evidence and not speculation.

On the other hand, I think what I wrote clearly shows that his pair is not real.

 

What makes you think it is real? Because the old K702/701s are being made in china now?

But the 702-65s are more similar to the 712s. And, again, being made in austria is listed as a feature.

 

So I would say that it is, without a doubt, a fake. :P

 

EDIT: But honestly, at this point, I think the guy just had nothing better to do and decided to go trolling.

The post with that picture was his one and only post ever.

And the picture looks like it could just be the stock picture photoshopped. The lettering looks a tiny bit odd to me, and (P.R.C.) is missing the first dot. It only says "Made in China (PR.C.)"

Also, according to at least one government source (USDA guidelines, not sure why USDA has guidelines on imported manufactured goods.. but w/e). PRC is not an acceptable abbreviation for China when marking the origin of goods. Either China or P.R. China is to be used. Not sure what other government guidelines say.
