Hey guys, I recently purchased some Sony MDR-V6s off Amazon, but I have a few concerns. I'm in the UK, and it seems that absolutely no-one other than third party sellers Amazon stocks these headphones, I couldn't find them on the UK Sony Store either. I did some research and they seemed like the best headphones I could buy in my (relatively tight budget). I checked the seller rating, which was high, and the location of the company was apparently America. The order was fulfilled through Amazon so I thought I'd take a chance and purchase a pair. I looked over the counterfeit threads and it seemed that there were some obvious differences in packaging and the actual headphones themselves, however these threads were from 2010/11. The leather pouch had the white sony stamp, and the manual doesn't look like a cheap print and came in sealed packaging.
When I got them everything checked out fine, the packaging matched up totally with how it should be. The red felt looked very well cut, the box checked out. However there are a couple of things nagging me about the headphones themselves. One of the For Digital Red stickers placed on the side of the headphones was stickied on at an angle. The stickers both look completely legitimate when compared to the fake stickers I saw online. Also, the underside of the headband worries me slightly. They're supposed to be totally smooth, and the fake ones I looked at were very wrinkled. Mine had a couple of dents and very very slight wrinkling. The dents showed up on the legitimate ones too however. Everything else checks out as it should do.
I've attached some pictures. I know I'm probably grasping at straws a little here, but if anyone could help me out it would be appreciated.

I'm sorry for the quality of the photos, they're not great I know.
