Let me say it again, there are no fake ANV3000's, the tools, materials and expertise to produce them will be through the roof, not to mention every pair of ANV3000 is serialised you can easily verify it with AT themselves. Just because a webpage looks suspicious doesn't automatically mean the website company is supplying fakes. It's called phishing and the Kaminisky attack in regards to internet security, websites that look the real deal which are not and are there to steal your Paypal, CC and bank details.
Well the best thing, as I said before, would be to collect the money and buy one so we could see for ourselves. Everybody interested in this scheme to satisfy our curiosity would contribute one dollar.
There have been genuine chinese fakes of the Sony MDR line, particularly 700s and 7506s and V6s and Pioneer HDJ-1000 and HDJ-2000, sold on Ebay. And also Sennheiser IEMs. These have been known to exist for some time. I do not think that moving on to Audio Technica headphones would prove to be a colossal problem for the counterfeiters.
