Difference between Unboxed and Pre-Owned
The main difference between "unboxed" and "pre-owned" products is that unboxed products have been tested and verified to function properly, and are thus free of defects, while "pre-owned" products may not be verified.
Unboxed products carry a certification along with them, giving the guarantee that the product being sold is genuine and is in working condition, whereas a pre-owned product will not come with any such guarantees.
Most importantly, a pre-owned product may not necessary come with a warranty and there is a good chance of the product being fake. With a unboxed product, as sold on Headphone Zone, there is no doubt about the authenticity of the product.
Difference between Unboxed and Refurbished
The primary difference between a unboxed product and a refurbished product as sold by Headphone Zone is that an unboxed product has never been used. A refurbished product is likely to have been used and then cleaned and restored to make it sellable.
Additionally, an unboxed product would contain all the accessories as bundled by the manufacturer in the original packaging. A refurbished product usually will have one or more missing component.
Finally, there is a price difference between an unboxed product and refurbished product. The discounts offered on a refurbished product tend to be higher than that offered on the unboxed product.
