Edward Haywood: Great Video! You can definitely hear the difference! The Bose have a
wonderful rich sound with good bass too. The counterfeits sound cheap
with a tinny sound. I had real Bose in-ear headphones and lost them. I
bought a new set on Ebay I thought at a good price. Well as soon as I tried
them...I noticed the sound quality sucked! So I checked online to see if
there was a problem with counterfeits. Thanks to your video I was able to
confirm I bought counterfeits! Thankfully the seller is accepting them back
and reimbursing me. Hopefully no one else is getting burned. For someone
that never heard the quality of Bose...they might not know the difference.
Jeanette Yang: in china they bootleg every freaking thing… LOL so true!
Mitch Grooms: great vid
sharpzh461: I just bought one Bose in-ear headset. The seller told me it's from OEM
manufacturer who made the headset for Bose. The manufacturer produced more
Bose headsets and sells them directly to the buyers without Bose
certificate. But they guarantee that the OEM Bose headset is the same as
the authentic one because they produced the same headset for Bose. Do you
carlsbadtuber: Fakes sound the same...i tried both -
loyalarcher: are in-ear headphones the only ones that are counterfeited so far?
sarihaddu: In china they put like any freaking thing!! hahahaha this made me laugh so
jdiddy27: I dont represent Bose or anything, But BOSE applies their specialty on EQs
and Bass, its why their sounds are distinctive and precise. Ofcourse the
fake ones wont sound like bose. although they can fool you. Hope that
mma123892: Mine are real. Thanks for uploading this video
jdiddy27: @theamazingsupergirl That is SO SO GREAT ! Its really good to have such
good people like that online. On the case of the Fake Headphones is um...
Trash it... Or give them away to someone who doesnt mind they are fake...
Dont try to sell them to anyone.. you wouldnt like what happened to you.. ;D
jdiddy27: IM glad you found out man, Now u can go and check out with the guy you
bought it from. or get your self a pair either though if they are used, but
make sure they are authentic. Cheers !
AlexeyDnepr: How to distinguish the genuine Bose MIE2i from the fake ?
Dipak Varsani: I got the same bose headphones that have the number 6361 on the left
headphone. I have seen that it means the headphones are fake. Is this true?
theamazingsupergirl: @theamazingsupergirl Actually, I contacted the seller and he refunded my
money immediatly. I was very lucky. He said he'd bought out an electronic
store and had no idea they were fake. I also saw that he removed the others
he had posted. I REALLY lucked out buying from an honest person. Now I have
these counterfeit headphones that I'm not sure what to do with. ;-/
Daniel Palomino Vieira: freak, mine are fake. Thanks dude, I preffer at least knowing.
jdiddy27: sucks man. try to get them used.
jdiddy27: No man, im in NYC. i got to PA once to visit my friend and that's where he
decided to go shooting.
jdiddy27: @dpv09992 Pls verify with Bose too. make sure they are fake. but i
understand if you have the reasonable doubt..
mauricio villarreal: please take the sticker off your hat
levitttt: So when I was speaking with a Bose specialist I brought that up, He said
"This is what we will do for you send them in and we will replace them for
you". I was so excited!!! Knowing Bose will do something like that shows
how great they are as a company taking care of there customers!!!! Thankyou
loyalarcher: What about the around-ear or on-ear headphones? Are they being
jdiddy27: UP to my knowledge. I think Yes, Bose might be the only ones, why ? Becayse
they are expensive. They go for 100 a pieces and u will find them on sale
at best buy ot other well known store for about 90 ,maybe less, maybe more.
theamazingsupergirl: i received mine from an ebay seller and they're clearly fake. if someone
hadn't owned them before, they wouldn't be able to tell. terrible quality
like the free apple iphones. the number is horizontal, the white parts are
yellowish, cheap plastic feel, doesn't say "tri-port" on any of the
packaging or material inside, it isn't soft or smooth, AND a gross old
plastic smell! i called bose but they gave me an email to send pics to and
can't give any info to me over the phone.
sarihaddu: do they sound better than headphones I received with galaxy S3?
Dipak Varsani: Hi, Thanks for the advice, i called them i told them if the bose silver
logo is supposed to fade off and they go no so that did confirm mines are
fake. My cord is plastic, no like your ones and they sound quality is like
the free headphones that i got with my walkman phone so i have received
fake bose headphone. Thanks for the video otherwise i would have never
known i had fake bose headphones so thanks for that.
xshowmethemoneyx: Just for a little extra insight: The sticky/security code, DOES not
necessarily have to be there. Most authorize dealers may or may not have
them. Like BestBuy will have them, because a lot of people have a legit
one(i do and i called them), and many don't have that sticker. But Yes the
number on the earbud should DEFINITEly confirm the real one!
jdiddy27: @theamazingsupergirl Dam that sucks.. Im really sorry to hear that... Ebay
is a very bad place to buy stuff sometimes..... Hope you can do something..
Ohmykie: does anybody know how the fake ones sound? thats all i care about. i will
buy the fakes if they sound good but not $100
jdiddy27: Not necessarily, But you can call BOSE and Confirm with the security
number. But it depends. urs is 6361....mine has a letter on it. but pls. i
urge u to find out, if u have a doubt.
jdiddy27: LOL, Agree, But there are some people out there that cant tell. and alot of
time they buy it without knowing... But thanks for your comment..
jdiddy27: @dipzyv I Understand where your coming from and i want you to think of it
this way, are you going to accept that another company to make replicas of
your product without your certification. Of course not. A lot of people
make up scenarios to make you buy their stuff.. once you purchase, your
done... so if u feel a doubt. save your self the headache my friend. thanks
for watching !
carlsbadtuber: who cares -
jdiddy27: I dont think they all gonna have the same number... Bu why u want it
anyways ? =D
vita6311: @Ohmykie my are fake most likely, from ebaycouk, bought them for 30pounds,
sound is not that bad, as i just need some good headphones for jogging in
park( they are not coming out from your ears) My brother wants to buy them
too. But i'm sure that the real ones are much better!(or at least has to be)
jdiddy27: @xshowmethemoneyx I totally understand your perspective.But with all do
respect, The security code sticker is there to also enforce the
confirmation of the product. if the headphones doesnt have that sticker its
most likely was rubbed off and lost. I now own the new MIE2i HEADSET and
its a great pair of earphones. and it contains the security sticker with a
small UPS-Like-Squared Bar code. The 4 letters on the bud wont really
confirm because thats how the first in ear got faked.
levitttt: So I just called to verify and my Bose IE2 are real!!! But thats not why
i'm posting. I bought my headphones off craigslist brand new a couple a
days ago and when I plugged them into my ipod they sounded not too bad but
for some reason the right ear bud doesnt sound as loud as the left.
Rohan M: I got earbuds that comes with note 2, which are same as the S3 ones, can
tell you that they are the craptiest i ever heard. totally no bass and they
sound too hollow. boss is way way better.
jdiddy27: um yeah
bsod4u2: Fake Bose in ear are very easy to tell,the quality is piss poor. The real
ones have a holographic security logo on the oval piece(on the cable),sound
quality . The fake have suspicious packaging print(poor quality)and the
warranty card is missing the sticker with the serial number. And so on, too
many misses on the copycats.
jdiddy27: U can do some research and find out. but as far as i know. i dont think so.
The in ear are more easier to counterfeit.
romeno: hey man what is the number on your headphones (left one actually)? I
couldn't read it on the video.
Rohan M: I called up bose and told them the 4 digit code that came with my IE2, they
said this code is for MIE2,the mobile version and not for IE2 but the code
is legit :/ wtf?
234234241able: Be aware, I have bought a Bose QC 15 via kingssd.co.uk and received a fake
one, which is really crap and low level quality.
brian hsin: serial number from the box... those are unique
Hair Do: Thanks for the tip. I do know it's hard to earn money. But it is much better than working minimum wage at mcdonolds. Being an hair stylist does get tips and I end up making decent money. Plus it allows me to be creative sometimes and make customer's dream come to reality.
