    Hi guys.

    Just bought these on eBay for over $200. Didnt say anything about being fake so I assumed they were real but I am of course doubting myself now. If they are fake then I will have to get a refund through Paypal but they haven't even arrived yet. Not sure if you can tell by the box if they are real/fake...

    I highly doubt someone on eBay would admit they were fake. Are there any "TM"s or other trademark logos on the box?

    Edit: nevermind you don't have them yet so you wouldn't know :p

    Are there any other pictures in the posting?

    The old ones that have the Monster branding are usually fakes

    Check the quality of the Band (i.e. plastic or metal), how does it bend fold, check the Logo's on the ears, are they perfectly molded or do they seem cheap and somewhat out of place.

    Those are fake, I have a pair of blue Beats Studios, I know there are more than one model of Beats but those look like they're imitating the larger Studios. First off..the box doesn't say "Detox" on it at all or have any embedding.

    Second, the headphones don't even look like that at all. Have you ever even seen a pair of Beats Studios in person? :eek:
    The headband only has cushioning at the top, and plastic on the sides. The earmuffs are WAAYYY too big, mine actually have half that amount of cushioning. Sad, you can buy the actual first-gens new for $250. Or new Beats Solo HD's for the same price you got those.

    You mean the Beats Pros that say that on the box, and don't have "Beats" written on the side of the headphones?

    Are the "b" logos on the physical headphones plastic or metal-like? If plastic, fake.

    Never buy Beats off EBay. I wouldn't even buy otterbox cases or Morphie juice packs. I thought Amazon would be a safe place but they allow fake stuff as well.

    When you get them email the company and confirm the serial number. This will tell you if they are real. Some of the fakes area really really good.

    Link to ebay page?

    I can't tell from those pics, maybe they're legit or maybe they aren't. I'm just saying they don't look like any Beats I've seen.

    I hear you. Just wanted to make sure there was no confusion over the Detox Edition. Here is a link with pics from Amazon of the box as well as headphones:
