Hi!!
 
I'm thinking of buying this:
 
http://cgi.ebay.com/Audio-Technica-ATH-FC700-Portable-Headphones-WHITE-/320447098126?pt=Other_MP3_Player_Accessories&hash=item4a9c22ad0e
 
This is the conversation with the seller:
 



Hello...
You know that ebay is full of fakes of this
headphones...
I'm form spain and I want to know if are you sure
that your headphones are true and original...
Many thanks!



Hi there, many customer they ask me same question before they purchase , and finally they decided to buy in my store
I Guarantee I sell genuine product only, even the AKG K450 is expensive, but many people purchase in my store , you can see the sell record and my feedback


like this one: "I bought AKG K 450 and it was orginal. Fast shipping also. Two thumbs up !" From Buyer:potato7874 ( Feedback Score Of 6 )

Again, I sell genuine earphone only .thanks



Are you sure that your product is exactly the same than the
product that i can buy here in spain?
Is not oem?
I'm a DJ and i will know if this headphones are a fake or
not...
Thanks!



cool, you are DJ so you will know it's orgional or fake
I don't need to explain more. I got the item directly from factory's stock .thanks

"Item location:GUANGDONG, China" That would've had me worried at least. Try going through his feedback, I think that if he has sold fake stuff in the past, he's likely to do it again.

why buy from ebay for $40 when you can buy them here online for the same price.

amazon also has  it for $34.75, will go with them ,  you can always return within 30days, if it is fake.
I am new to the site but really excited about all the resources.

I bet you over 95% of the buyers are content because of the price and dont have the originals to compare them to. Since you are speculating wether they're real or not, you'll be one of the 5% that realizes the difference, and part of the 1% which reports the guy

trust the negative feedback, theyre most likely right!
 
PS: hello head-fi! I gave in after being a long-time lurker

I bought mine from amazon.
I dunno if the Ebay seller item is fake, but I can point out the differences.
 
The earpads are not as wrinkled on mine.
The box is same, but does not have same model number.
My model number is the same one on the company site, and the JandR site and the Amazon site:
ATH-FC700A
 
Everything else looks Ok in pics.
Looks to me like those are first version units, because missing that letter "A"
 
Should be easy to tell if fake, because real ones are very much apparent in midrange/treble clarity.
Cheap cans usually sound dull.
 
My unit packaging says on back that it was made in Taiwan.
Look to see if on left inside band has a small recycling sticker.
My warrantee paper  was a full, "letter sized", double sided sheet.
