Hi is the headphonecompany.co.uk legit for audio technicaheadphones please?

Read the 1st post of this thread. www.theheadphonecompany.co.uk is legit for SoundMAGIC, but is not in the list for Audio Technica. Worth ringing and confirming with Audio Technica on 01132771441.

'ePacket delivery from China'.  I'd give it a wider berth than a sneezing lepper. If you really want a pair without the fear of them being fakes, hunt-down an authorised AKG dealer.

Simply open a case with eBay, demanding a refund (item not as described). The seller does offer a 14-day returns.

1. eBay refused to open case...

2. Bose headquaters replied not to buy from unauthorized dealers...

RE: How to avoid buying fake headphones

Hi Andy,

 

I was wondering whether you received my email. Every single headphone sold by Music To Your Ears is sourced from the official UK source so it would be good to be in the listings if possible please.

 

Thanks

 

Joel

It's online only audioarchitect, no bricks and mortar shop.

RE: How to avoid buying fake headphones

www.themercantiletx.com sells fakes.

 

I assumed that any website recommended on Google Shopping would be legitimate but have found out the hard way in buying fake Sennheiser Momentums. No protection from Google, no protection from credit card company.
