Guys, I, like many other desidimers, purchased the cx200 street from indiaplaza. Must say that I’m very disappointed with the sound. It had no bass, sounded like sound coming from a hollow pipe. Now, I know that the product is not bad mainly for 2 reasons:

- I have some experience with earphones: I have used – Creative ep- 630, ep-830, soundmagic pl-11, pl-30, ajays four. So I know what good sound is about. Well I haven’t really tried earphones (costing 10k and above) but I believe you can easily tell the difference between a fake and a original.

-Reviews on the web
We know that the product is good:
http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&q=…

It averages 4 stars out of 5 on the web (the average is from many well known websites)

-Furthermore, reading this has convinced me even more that its a fake:

-The earphones were, surprisingly, box packed, the spellings were correct.

-Please vote this up if you believe that its a fake, vote down if you feel that you’ve received a original.
I find it hard to believe that Indiaplaza is doing this (they are risking their name for this)

Please note from the images, I received only one extra pair of earbuds, someone said that it has 2 extra pairs

I had warned the users before in the post that it was a fake…I think you should also post the pictures of the product you received from IP, so that other users can have an idea…

Indiaplaza has many Chinese items listed like eBay. I too have received low quality products recently like these:

Non Slip Dash Mat

Photobucket

360 Degrees Universal Car Mobile PDA GPS Holder
http://www.indiaplaza.com/360-degrees-universal…

The pictures look nice on their website but what they deliver is inferior products whose value is just double of local market (after applying coupons!)

Its definitely fake, I did not have time to take a photo and upload.

As you said, no spelling mistakes or anything that will make help visually determine that it is a fake product. The length of cable is, probably, shorter than the normal one. The earphone adapters should have been 3 sets – 1 Small, 1 Medium and 1 Large, I received 2 mediums. Sound coming out of these phones were horrible.

Did anybody return this back to IP?

I would agree, it looks like an orignal, will try and post pics once I reach home (@ work now). Wonder whether they will accept it back.

I called up IP customer service and informed them that the headphones that I received are not genuine. The representative listened to my request, created a ticket. As per the ticket update , I was asked to ship the item back to them and they will pay the shipping charges if I sent the scan copy of the bill. I have shipped the headphones back to them today, will keep you updated with progress. I am requesting them to provide me a genuine replacement.

Thanks, I only wonder if they have a genuine replacement! Three others in my office bought the same product and all were the same…….I think the best option is to ask for your money back
