Attention! Fake Klipsch Image X10

post #1 of 50
Thread Starter 

Greetings!

 

Here is summary for fake Klipsch X10.

Be careful!

 

Earphones appears to be dynamic, not balanced armature.

 

1. Color. Original X10 have anodized body. Fake are painted. Color is more glossy and bright.

2. Outer body diameter. Fake 6.8mm. Original 6.7

3. There is no acoustic filter on fake. Some rarefied grid instead.

4. Inner nozzle diameter. Original 1.7 mm, fake 1.9.

5. All body verges are more sharp on original and more round on fake.

6. Due to it's dynamic driver fake are exellently magnetized to each other or any other metal surface.

I can not upload photos here yet, I presume. So I uploaded some to imageshack.

That always gives me the shiffers. I skipped on a few Sony Earbuds because I did not trust it. Price was to low.

Yeah if its not from the actual company and 3rd party seller than you better know about them before you buy.  There's plenty of good trustworthy company that sale on Amazon but there's always a a few that can mess sh#t up.

Oh no.. this is red alert..

 

Now the problem I have is that I can't tell if mines are fake even with the help of the pictures! I didn't get them from Amazon... Could you explain more on the acoustic filter because I don't see any of them on your 3rd picture link. I also did not get what the 2nd picture link is actually trying to show. Would appreciate more explanation or help!
