Despite efforts made to combat its prevalence, there exists a rampant grey secondary market for headphones and audio equipment. In recent times, a drastic increase in the number of fakes available has been observed.
Major and popular brands like Sony are highly susceptible to this. The Japanese giant has provided a few handy tips to help you spot a fake from an original headphone or earphone.
Your genuine Sony headphone comes with a 1 year warranty sticker while the fake one doesn't.
Your genuine Sony headphone comes with an MRP sticker while the fake one doesn't.
Your genuine Sony earphone has a bar code that ends with (E) or (IN) while a fake headphone generally has a (CH) or (CN) suffix.
