    I have purchased one of the earbuds you have displayed here, they are not genuine product. They are cheap quality earbuds which are not even worth 100 RS. Do not buy it from all shopping sites.

      I have done a deep investigation on major shopping sites like amazon and other e-commerce sites and they have been selling fake products at a low price as 199 INR.

    Amazon and eBay are notorious for selling counterfeit items. They are ALL over Amazon and eBay! The only way to know you are getting the genuine product is to buy from the manufacturer’s website, and secondly from respected online stores.

      Manufacturers are not selling directly from their site like Apple iPhone, but they are giving out the location of nearest authorized dealers and stores.
