    Hi guys I just need someone's help. I bought powerbeats from eBay (yeah already sounds suspicious) and I think they're fake. First off the ear hooks are hard and plastic, not flexible at all. They won't fit my ears, and I can't adjust it either. Second there is no control talk, and third there isn't even a spot for the carrying case in the package.

    Now I knew some of these things wouldn't be included, and the audio works fine so I thought maybe they aren't fake? When I messaged the seller he told me that they are first generation. Is that a viable claim? The packaging is kinda off, and the motto isn't even in there, sound is energy. Plus does first generation mean they don't come with a case and the ear hooks aren't flexible? He told me he'd give me $25 back. Should I file a case? Any help would be appreciated.

    Here is the listing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/250957595727?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

    Those are fakes. I have the Tour HD edition w/ Control Talk. If you want DreBeats, buy it from a REPUTABLE source. DreBeats ear pieces is metallic and the "b" is etched on. The "b" on there doesn't look good as good as the original. All cases have a "b" embossed on the case. They also come with a velcro tie. Lastly, DreBeats is written on the input cable and they have serial numbers.

    I'd say just by the sellers actions they seem fake. Offering to give you 35% back, just because you're inquiring about them? Seems kind of questionable.
