REAL ONES ON THE LEFT OR AT THE TOP.
You can't see very well in this picture, it looked fine when I took it, the silver on the real beats logo is actually silver and the fake one is white. The main difference is the light shining of the headphones, the real ones are much lighter than the fake ones.
This is the left side of the box and they are not even similar.
Sorry for another bad picture, this is the back of the box and this isn't even similar as well. The real box has the picture of the speaker thing on the back; not on the left where it is on the fake(and the one on the fake is really unclear but the one on the real ones is clear).
This is the right side of the box, Dre's face is much smaller and lighter on the real box and the fake picture of Dre is the same as the one that appears when you go on the Beats by Dre website.
Under the black cover of the box it is very similar; but the logo and writing is slightly lower on the fake one than on the real ones and the red on the fake box is slightly lighter.
I couldn't see any difference here apart from the Touring case is a bit different.
The fake Beats logo is slightly bigger, it has a deeper indent on the logo and the case is a bit smaller than the real one.
The real Touring case has the removable pocket but the fake one is suck in.
These are the 1/8" to 1/4" adapters, the real one is black at the top and the fake one is a gold colour.
This picture show the two adapters again; the real one fits perfectly and the fake one dosn't even fit. The following picture shows why.
If you can see inside the hole there is a ridge sticking out stopping anything plugging into it.
These are the airline adapters; the real one came in a bag and the fake one was just in the box. The fake is more square at the top and bumps on the side whereas the real one is rounded off at the top and lines on the side.You probably can't see in this picture but bits that sick out and into the headphone socket on a airline aren't even level so probably won't work but at least you can plug a cable in unlike on the 1/8" to 1/4" adapter.
The fake one hasn't even been put together properly; the bit that you plug in isn't even on level with the black thing with the Monster name and logo at the top.
The fake iSonitalk cable is much shinier that the real one; the idea of this was so you could answer calls and the fake doesn't even have a microphone, sorry I forgot to get a picture of the microphone on the real cable.
The fake Clean cloth is more rectangular than the real one which is square. I think they must of made a mistake making the fake one because the label on the fake one looks like they just put it anywhere.
The real booklet is much thicker because it has lots of different languages and it doesn't have "quick start guide and warranty" on it. Also the fakes came with a leaflet advertising products that I'm not sure even exist.
Sorry about the picture cutting part of the fake headphones off. The fakes were actually quite a bit smaller than the real ones. Both pairs have a serial number under the battery cover but the serial number looks fake as well; I would try registering them but I don't want to take someone who has real Beats serial number.
The fake ones don't snap into place after they have been folded like the real ones that snap perfectly back into place; the fakes feel really weak. When you adjust the length of the fake one they just fall out straight to the bottom but the real ones hold in place perfectly.
I listened to a few songs in both pairs of earphones, I can't talk about bass and mids because I don't know what to listen out for yet but I'm trying to find out so I can. But the fakes don't even give the same volume through each ear cup; the left ear cup was significantly louder than the right one.
Please follow and could I please have some opinions/ suggestions what to do next in the comments.
Thank you for reading,
