[PHOTOS] Real Beats by Dr Dre Solo HD?

I have bought a pair of Dre beats!

How can I tell 100% that they are real? Anything I should look out for in particular...?

I've agreed to send them back to the seller if they are real without paying so just want to make sure they are real...

Price would be one dead give away, failing that have a look at the monster cable website as there is a tutorial on it

most of the ones on ebay are fake , to be sure buy from a registered stockist, dont buy them 2nd hand

OP has already bought them lol

Where you bought them from is an indication, eBay, Amazon Marketplace, Playtrade & HUKD FS/T = fake

Sorry guys I didn't make things too clear... Edited

just looked at pics of the ones you bought cant be 100% but they look fake just the quality of the packaging and the cables look thin

no recpiet plus seller has only been around for just over a month. hmm I would have stayed clear.

I'll take some photos for some more opinions...

The sound quality is pretty good though if they are fake!

Where did he say he bought them from?

I got a pair i bought from the apple store in front of me underneath the head-band there are 2 metal bands attached to the plastic band by some torx bolts.
on the L side it says beats and has a (b) symbol
on the R side it says monster and has the monster symbol.
Is yours the same?

What's the big deal with these things?

Yes, exacltly the same

I've also scanned the barcode using my iPhone and it's come up with many results for Beats by Dr Dre!

and did you get both cables (control talk and standard) and a storage bag?

I just got some sony XB700s for £30 (actually £20 as I had £10 voucher :p) which are awesome (RRP is £100 most places selling them for £70) yet loads of people love these beats...they probs sound good but I guess its big cos of the dr dre name and the look etc

They are decent cans, good sound, but the main selling factor is it's a cool fashion item (mine are my son's, honest, i'm not that vain!)

Stick to the question please and stop flirting

Fake... not trolling because I've stocked up on facts, on the real Monster Beats leaflet, you see Dr Dres neck more clearer but, search on the net there has been loads of forums stating whats fake or not, btw may I ask what batteries were yours supplied with?

but not 100% sure... be sure to check up...
