The pupose of this guide is to advise people that when buying certain Bang & Olufsen items (A8 earphones) that they are likely to be fake or counterfeit.
1.A8 earphones or NEVER supplied with a black box.
2.Persons wishing to buy quantities of A8's can only secure them from genuine B&O dealers where the retail price is £120 NOT £15 from China.
3. A8's are NOT supplied with an extension cord of any type.
4.The original pouch supplied with the A8's is NOT leather or thin plastic but a thick coated black wallet.
5.Althought they make look similar the audio quality is very poor.
This is not just my opinion but fact after being associated with Bang & Olufsen fro a long time. I hope this helps any potential buyers.
