So there were rumors floating around of fake Edition 8's since last November (in the ED8 thread) but no one really took notice. But as it turns out, a lot of other flagship replicas are showing up on chinese sites, namely alibaba and aliexpress. The list mainly includes Beyerdynamic, Grado, and Ultrasone, but also Fostex (TH900) and a bunch of high-end in-ears. And if they're as good as making these as they are with fake Beats, then it would be very hard to tell from pictures alone.
Of course, once you have them in hand it would be very easy to tell from the real ones (horrible sound, plastic wood, etc) but at the same time, a lot of people completely dismiss the possibility of counterfeits when dealing with flagships so they might be caught off guard.
