170579580348 -- fake. "Business seller" is registered at a residential address. They provide a : "100% Money Back Guarantee within 7 days according of arrival due to quality problem". Usually means they're fake but they'll refund you if you notice, so you don't leave negative feedback.

180601886868 -- fake. See feedback: feedback.ebay.co.uk/ws/…365

180600586535 -- unsure but possibly fake. Seller has one neutral and one negative comment saying the product is fake. Also registered to a residential address so not a proper business seller.

Best advice: stumpy up full price and get them from somewhere reputable like Amazon. If you try and get a bargain, you'll most likely get stung by a scammer. Have a look on MyMemory too - they provide genuine Sennheiser headphones at (usually) good prices

I do understand that, but the point I was trying to make was that I wouldn't trust one-man-band eBay business sellers to supply genuine Sennheiser products. I wouldn't be surprised if there were more fake Sennheiser in-ear headphones out there than real ones. eBay, Amazon Marketplace and PlayTrade are an absolute minefield when it comes to fake Sennheiser earphones...

Would say they are all gonna be fake to be honest all too cheap for a new product, doesn't mean a thing that it is a UK seller any more.

All fake ,Would be worth buying if they were £1.99 which is roughly what these buyers pay for them

Stop being so cheap?

The CX 500s are discontinued so you are unlikely to find them now but they used to retail around £40 so you won't get anything near £15

These will be your best bet but way above budget unfortunately

agreed, dont expect to get £30-40 headphones for £10 and not be fake..

cx300s are about £17, best set at that price IMO.

They won't be for much longer, you must ask why they are selling the CX300,CX400 and CX500s for the same price.You must ask yourself if these were discontinued in 2009 then where is the continuous stock coming from and why do they all use stock photos. If any one had any genuine ones you would hink they would do everything possible to advertise this fact.

The majority buying these will probably know they are fake hence won't be bothered about the poor quality just the price.

You really don't seem to want to believe the good advice you are getting. Just because you want them to be real for this price does not make it so I am afraid.

This is a case of wait for a reputable source to have a sale or cut your cloth according to your means.
