i was there a couple of times, and you can find EVERYTHING from the Rolex to headphones......quite impressive. There is a whole part of the city which is only a market for fakes.

You cannot make this sweeping statement. Fiio official distributor is located in Guangzhou as well.

Ha ha I know, It is impressive I googled it, pretty damn big piracy market and goods are literally identical to the originals, pretty scary.

So I bought an E11 from ebay, someone from the US, I got it for 72 $, never even crossed my mind to check if there was a website though, I hope his connect isn't from Guangzhoueek.gif

Seriously, so what if the picture shows a authentic product image? What if they have you a fake one.

Ok so would you be able to tell if it were fake or not?.. anyways i was pointing out the FIIO logo on the thing.. one image has smaller text on the device after the FIIO logo..and one doesn't have text at all after the FIIO logo... If i got a fake I wouldn't know, i never had an amp before..not even sure what to expect from an amplified headphone... like a difference that u can notice...its all good im not stressin...fake or not i used real money to buy the thing..so its real too me lol
