Fake Sennheiser HD 600? Paint chipping

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 


I just bought a pair of Sennheiser hd 600 on ebay, for 265 USD. Buyer said they were purchased for a cancelled recording, and were quickly put back into boxes. The package I received included no original box, just the headphones floating around with a few airbags. I instantly noticed the apparent ware on the headband pads, and small chipping of the marble paint to reveal a cheap looking black plastic? The seller has a 14 day return time, which is odd if they fakes. There were three on sale with the stock pictures, and were gone within an hour. Should I return these while I still can? Everything else checks out, just seeing if paint chipping is normal?

I have seen pairs if these for sale, used, and paint chipping is common. It can happen with wear over time, or if someone just wasn't very careful about gently setting them down. It is well known that much of the body is plastic.

Yep.  I have one bought from Sennheiser and the paint on the headband is chipping a bit where it's held by the banana hanger I use.;)
