Don't know, but they are cheap and the seller's feedback is limited (and only refers to cheap stuff, not to expensive headphones). If it sounds too good to be true it is either not true or a Beyerdynamic with 600 ohms resistance from the 80s

Fake ESW9's *for sure* exist - I have seen and heard a pair. The cups on the fakes look like wood from a distance, but up close are clearly plastic, and the pads and headband are pleather. They don't sound great either. But impossible to tell from that ad.

I am currently in UK, and no dealers seems to have it stocked except ESW10 (too expensive to carry around). I want the ESW9 but only way seems to be eBay.

TBH, amazon.jp have it on £130, so this price is reasonable.

I've bought and returned a fake pair. They did have wooden cups but were of poor workmanship.

Don't see any for sale here to UK. PriceJapan got reasonable price though. At £190 shipping is OK, but like to pay around £150.

Thanks for the link and feedback. I guess I would just buy from there then. Overall £175.
