Anyone With Bose QC3's? (Possible Fakes Question!)

Can anyone with a set of Bose QC3's try to see if the Bose logo can easily be scratched off the silver headphone set sides?...I bought these off Ebay after my original pair got stolen. Tried to find an online guide to fake spotting but couldn't find one.

We can try to scratch our pair.

Hey man we cant scratch the bose logo on our pair but no it shouldn't scratch of easily see the overall condition of the head phones and see if they are good or not if they are in good condition and the logo is like this it could be a fake. if the sounds like your other pairs you know same quality sound then just don't worry.

Thanks for your reply....I found this link which also confirms the logo should not be a transfer or sticker....will pursue the seller and Paypal for a refund...

Once I was selling a Bose Ie2 headset and my listing got removed because you guys claimed it was counterfeit. It was in fact completely genuine.

They don't directly make any money from re-sales, so they couldn't care less if you were selling a genuine pair or not. They'd do away with first sale in a heartbeat if they could.

A bit short sighted IMO, but alas businesses tend to think more in the short term using simple metrics.
