    I'm sorry for this post, I do not know if this is allowed or not. I do not know much about these headphones, all I know is that there are a lot of fake Dr. Dre Beats going around. I only have one picture and I was wondering if somebody on here might be able to tell if these guys are real or fake. I apologize, I know one picture isn't much. Thanks for your help.

    If someone owned a pair of beats i'd imagine it would be quite easy to spot a fake from that photo.

    Here's the thing, this is the pic the seller has sent me. I have asked for pictures of the box and packaging as well. He is a power seller, he told me that there is a factory seal on the box. Does this factory seal make them authentic?

    This is the tale tale sign of fakes. If you're wondering then go to the Monster Outlet website and pick up a pair of Beats for $130 for the ones you posted.

    Yeah. They're way too scrunched up.

    If the price is too good to be true, then they're most likely fake.

    He's a power seller advertising knockoffs as authentic? Report him/her and do the rest of us honest eBayers a favor.

    Unless he's verifiable via the manufacturer's site, don't risk it. eBay is full of these knock off products with attractive pricing.

    While I couldn't care less for the Beats gimmick, don't get scammed, avoid eBay. Stick with legitimate resellers.

    Don't buy Beats, real or not. Buy good sound, not shiny packaging.

    These are screamingly FAKE! The ear-cups are way too small, and the cords thickness is not right. You can also tell these are fakes because of how the cord attaches to the headphone, not correctly. Again, you can tell by the "aluminum" between the ear-cup and the speaker, it's not aluminum.

    The text that says (SOLO HD) on the red Beats looks to big. My beats have smaller text than that
