People are saying the Sennheisers that were on sale on Amazon may not be authentic.

http://www.amazon.ca/forum/-/Tx1PT19...sin=B0126HISOO

Tried to authenticate the headphones here, but it said authentication failed.

Anyone having better luck?

With the sale facilitated by Amazon, I believe it is highly unlikely that they are not authentic, and if they were proven not to be, I am completely confident Amazon would step up and replace.

I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Sennheiser confirmed they're legit, according to Linus
Quote:
LinusTechTips 9 hours ago
+Kato Boii If you buy the SE from Amazon directly, it is legit. I've personally spoken to Sennheiser about it.
found here youtube.com/watch?v=uZuSeufCO7I

The SE's were just released like 1 month ago, highly doubtful that Amazon would be unloading fakes, especially so soon ;P

also someone noted
Quote:
Some people are inputting their ID incorrectly. You have to enter the plain text ID first, and then it will prompt the holographic ID. The website doesn't make this very clear.
having said that, my 598 failed the check too

I received my HD598SE from Amazon today. Failed the authenticity check as well.

The check is confusing. There are 3 parts above the QR code.
The plain text code in the hologram, and last digit in the hologram that you can see when you tilt it.
And the ID code.

Which one do you enter when it asks: "Please enter the label ID which can be found above the QR-Code."

Also, I tried to find the mobile site to take a pic of the QR code but I can't find it.

But the box and barcode definitely looks authentic. Also, I think Sennheiser was pumping these HD598SE for Amazon to sell for Black Friday, and the codes are so new that they did not register them all yet for authenticity checks.

Amazon is absolutely useless when it comes to dealing with shady companies selling through them, I've had multiple issues with a variety of different stores and not once have they done anything to try and help me or correct the problems on their side. They don't seem to care at all about who is selling through them so I've stopped buying anything via Amazon.

its the non-holographic id number above the qr code, also you can just use your cell phone to scan the qr code and it'll send you to the same page with the proper id number already entered

yep that's what i read too, the SE's are brand new made for Amazon for Black Friday

people are thinking the same, that they're just too new that the codes aren't fully in the system yet or something

am not concerned

2) The velour on real Sennheisers tucks right into the earcup; on the fakes it's crudely sewn to a piece of beige vinyl that peeks out between the plastic earcup and the velour.
3) The pad across the headband is stitched on real Sennheisers; on the fakes it's just molded.
4) Inside the headband above each earcup, real Sennheisers have four screws; the fakes have three.

Hope that helps. Still call in to make sure but this can give you a little peace of mind.
I opened them up, it passed the physical check.
Just from looking at them, these look like the real deal. You will just notice the sennheiser quality in the small details. It feels comfortable and sounds great
I'm not worried about it.

This is exactly my point. Amazon is both a marketplace where random sellers can sell, and also a place where they sometimes provide the product (facilitated by Amazon).

The former is high risk and you are right, they won't really get involved. However, the headphones are actually shipped by Amazon from their own warehouse - totally different and yes they will take care of it if something is not right.

Ya pretty sure best buy is moving to station square. Went to bed bath and beyond the other day and saw a best buy sign on one of the windows. Then went to best buy after and they barely had any items on display.

They are way too big they are not going to handle it case by case. What they do is rating the seller by metrics. Enough shitty customer experience, late shipping, cancellations and they shut the seller down, regardless how big. Bad score also affect the seller's buy box and their SEO so there are incentives for sellers to provide adequate services.

They are very data driven. Do they care about you solely, probably not. But big picture? Absolutely.

Ended up getting this
http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00L...ilpage_o02_s00
=D I got a crappy one when I was in China made by Rock. Can't even charge my 1+1 past 90% and it takes a very very long time to charge anything.

Also got a pack of cables
http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B012...ilpage_o00_s00
I really need the long ones. Really miss getting a Samsung phones as they are the only OEM phone company that provide long USB cables
http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B016...ilpage_o00_s00
Quality seems good and is cheaper than getting one through Apple

Got my Sennheiser's today they match the physical description above of the legit ones. Beautiful sound profile even though they're not broken in, hear so many things I never even heard before in songs I regularly listen to! Sound leakage to people around you is horrid as noted in the reviews though
