    Do these look legit?

    Most of the boxes that I've seen have "QC25" on the first line and then "Acoustic Noise Cancelling" on the second line. This box has it reversed and spells out "QuietComfort 25".

    I bought these used from B&H.com.

    Am I just being crazy?

    I'm sorry I might confuse you further. Almost every unboxing video on YouTube has the label QC25 on the first line. The only place where you do find a QuietComfort 25 label on the boxes, is ebay. On the other hand, the genuine QC25 Special Edition box has QuietComfort 25 spelled out just like your's.

    Here's a link to the video:

    Thanks. I'm sure they are fine but you never know! Hopefully since they are from B&H they are the real deal. Bose said the box looks good, but they can't confirm or deny they are authentic.

    That sounds strange, you would think Bose could tell if the headphones were authentic or not?

    This was their answer:

    This does look normal, though the only way to verify you have an authentic product is to purchase directly from an authorized dealer. If you'd like to provide the serial number we can take a look at that too, though even serial numbers can be copied.
    As we mentioned, we're unable to authenticate a product unless it's purchased from an authorized dealer, but the serial number also appears to be accurate. We hope this helps.
