I think I got fakes.
Can anyone tell me what it says on the wrapping?
This is on the plastic surrounding the headphones that came w/ my 3Gs on launch day. (The 3Gs that some dishonest person in NYC now has after they found it in a cab. )
(too lazy to put the accents in)
Buying them anywhere other than Apple, they probably are. Made that mistake once. Got my money back though. Bought a pair off eBay. They looked IDENTICAL to the retail version. Box, instructions, everything. However once in hand, you could tell they were fake.
- Wires on fakes are white, not gray like the real ones.
- Wires on fakes are "harder", not rubbery/silicone like on the real ones. The real ones have a "bounce" to them.
- The rubber ends where the wire enters the buds and the jack are cheap. Not clean. Look off, out of place.
- You can actually pop off the front of the ear buds.
That should help
Took a pic. 3GS camera ROCKS!
So.. realsies or fake?
Look real to me.
Yes, those are real.
Just checked the wrapper on mine. It reads: here are a pair of ****** $2 earbuds that, if lost, we'll replace for $29. Good luck sucker.
these headphones are absolutely awful. unless you use the clicking device on them i'd say get a different pair. they fit terribly in the ears and the sound quality isn't too hot.
Are the ends of the clicker gray or white?
Why the hell would any of you PAY for those god-awful headphones?
I'm not a headphone nazi. They sound just fine to me
Just checked, grey. I was able to plug them into my iPhone and hear them w/o taking off wrapper(I'd have to pay a restocking fee if I did, and returned). used the remote, up, down, play/pause, full blast sounded good.
Real? Or real good fake?
What type of headphones would you guys recommend to replace iphone ones? My friend loves the earbuds that sit on the ear but I don't know any good ones.
there are lots of options, it's really a matter of how much do you want to spend.
i use these
Dude, I took the time to type out all that crap earlier. THEN we all verified your pic.
If you don't accept our answer by now, you never will. I'm done.
haha, I accept your answers and am grateful, I wasn't answering in disbelief, but to cure anyones possible speculation or curiosity.
@beats picture... now THOSE might be fake
Real. Fakes lack detail. Seems like yours are good
Heres what I did with the crap headphones that came with the iphone.
Go to radio shack and get a cheap set of in ear buds. (like boshii pictured)
Take your stock iphone buds and pop the speaker tips off the end of the earpieces.
Grab your soldering gun and heat up the connections in the iphone buds so they come loose. Untie and remove the iphone buds from the stock cable.
Take the radioshack el' cheapos and do the same thing removing the buds from the cable. DONT CUT ANYTHING.
Feed the iphone cables up into each of your new earbuds
Re-tie and Re-Solder.
Put everything back together and there you have it!
Great sounding in-ear-buds that have the stock iphone connector, button and microphone for less than 10 bucks!
I did this and I highly recommend it. Its also probably one of the easiest DIY you can do. The only difficult thing it making sure you dont burn yourself with the soldering iron if you havent handled one before.
Try it out and let me know how it goes!
I am chill!
BTW, way to get voted down into oblivion on Engadget yesterday.
those definitely are not cheap
Lol. Which comment was it?
I forget, I think it was Android related. Didn't seem too bad IIRC, but lots of ppl seemed to disagree. LOL
These are really sweet sounding headphones, but you are paying for the singer/producers name. They are the same price as a set of custom moulds can cost. WOW!
Hehe. Yeah, I can't remember. I know I commented about some douche looking guy holding a droid, the EV car, AT&T and a couple others. Eh, it doesn't matter. I don't comment much but when I do, I have fun
