First post here, but been reading a lot. I've just bought a set of Audio-Technica ATH-M50s on Amazon. Best price I could find. Last night I happened to check Audio Technica's website and come to find that Amazon is not an authorized seller. So now I am concerned that when they arrive I will have purchased a set of fake phones. I did not buy from an Amazon reseller (at least I don't think I did). It stated Ships from and sold by Amazon.com. So I have questions:
- How legitimate is Amazon, and what are the chances that my phones will be fakes (or refurbs)?
- When they do arrive, is there anything about the appearance that will tell me if they are real or fake?
I have learned a lot about headphones while perusing this site. I have been educated and baffled at the same time!! I recently purchased a set of Bose MIE2 and after an hour listening on a flight I came to the realization that I never want to wear in-ears again.
Went with the M50s because it seems that for my price range these phones received a higher ratio of positive reviews to negative than any other headphone. I know they're not noise-cancelling but I'm fine with that. Thanks to all for any advice you can offer. Looking forward to my time on the forum
