Are your Beats FAKE?
As per the latest trend out there, and it’s one we really wish would stop as soon as possible. If you weren’t aware, there’s a whole treasure trove of people whose only purpose in life—seemingly, anyway—is to aggravate the rest of us by copying and counterfeiting Monster headphones, like Beats by Dr. Dre. The problem is far more rampant than any of us would like to admit, and no matter how you slice it, knowing how to identify a legitimate pair of Beats by Dre from a fake (and less superior) knock-off is vital in today’s market.
With that in mind, we’ve whipped up a quick survivor’s guide to help you out. Sadly, counterfeiters are rather ingenious, and the minute a list like ours goes live, new methods are implemented. In fact, these methods are being concocted all the time, but you can still better prepare yourself with the headphone tips listed below.
Beware the Too Good to be True:
First out of the box, the age-old adage of “If it’s too good to be true, it probably is!” very much applies here. If you find a pair of Beats by Dr. Dre, or any other Monster products on sale for well below the market price, you’re likely barking up an illegal tree. Quality costs, and though you may not like the hit to your wallet, buying a legitimate pair of Beats headphones is a guaranteed affair. All in all,
be wary of anyone offering low-budget cans with an high-budget name. You really do get what you pay for, and in the case of a forgery, what you pay for isn’t much.
There are No Specials:
Secondly, we notice that a lot of the popular knockoffs and fakes feature some kind of gimmick. Be wary of any artist series headphones that you don’t recognize. Even if those Glen Campbell signature in-ears look like the deal of a lifetime, a quick check with the actual Beats website clues you into their legitimacy. Knowing the brand itself, as well as the various models it supports, will help you find and identify the forgeries with a quicker eye. Not all artist series headphones are fake, for example, SMS Audio Street by 50 cent is indeed legit.

Know the Brand Quality:
But what if you’re in a shop, and stumble upon a seemingly legit pair of Monster Beats? How do you know (for certain) if they’re the real deal or not? A good indicator is a physical sound. How do the headphones sound when played? A real set of Beats by Dre comes with a guaranteed high definition sound that typically blows us out of the water. If the headphones in your hands don’t perform in a similar fashion, we’d be willing to bet nine times out of then they’re not real. Also, look for the brand, and/or logo on the headphones. Many knock-off headphones do not boast the logo on the cans.
Colors of the Rainbow:
Lastly, be wary of any headphones that come in unusual colors, or schemes you were previously unaware of. Only Beats certified color schemes are official, and anything else is either a fake or someone’s craft project on an original pair: Though we have a feeling the former is more likely probable.
So we hope this quick guide would help you not to fall prey to this not so kind fake-make and you truly enjoy the real sense of the music with the passion it was built and meant to have listened.
Keep listening to the good music and have a blessed life!
