    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to Razer and want to buy Hammerhead Pro. I'm going to buy one from America and I am concerned about it's originality. Can I check it in Synapse? Thank you.

    Thanks for the answer!

    But I will bought it from a cite like eBay so I don't know where it will be bought. Is it going to be a problem?

    Ebay can always be a problem, as there seem to be a lot of fake razer product going around, so if you want to be 100% sure better chose another retailer like amazone or directly form the razerstore

    Actually, as I said ''a cite like eBay'' not actually eBay. I'm living in Turkey and we have huge amount of taxes so it make a huge difference. We don't have razer stores either I think.

    We had a few discussions on this topic, maybe you will something usefull there, however it is always a risk to order razer gear from not authorized retailers, so in my opinion, better don't order them is you have any concerns
    otherwise ask the retailer for the s/n number so you can check yourself

    You could also try using the Razer Resellers List to see if there are any stores you could shop at, or if there are any online stores that you could use.
     
  8. I suggest buying from the razerstore to ensure that you buy original razer products~

    In Razer Synapse 2.0 you can register it and check the originality. With replicas it won't work

    In the synapse the place you buy etc. is required. How can I check? the cite that I'm buying isn't in that page.

    Edit: So, do I have to choose the buying place correctly?

    Just link the site you are buying to, it should be easy to evaluate.

    As j.i mentioned above, we've seen these cheap Hammerheads pop up recently from third party sellers. As far as what's actually going on, your guess is as good as mine. Here are some possibilities I came up with:
    1. The factory responsible for manufacturing the Hammerheads messed something up on a huge batch and Razer refused to take them, so the factory pushed them out to third party sellers to recoup their loss.
    2. I wouldn't be surprised if a factory leaked the manufacturing specifications for the Hammerheads. This would mean tons of fakes being churned out.
    3. Maybe Razer plans on discontinuing these earbuds so resellers are trying to sell them all off at a discounted price to clear stock (although this is unlikely, since I see them being sold without packaging too).
    All speculation though. I just bought a 'fake' pair for $20 because I need cheap earphones for my jogs and I want to pose that I'm a cool kid :)

    Btw, welcome to Insider Thux

    Wait what? Without even posting the site? I think you are out of $100, my friend.

    Here's the truth: If it doesn't come from Razer or an authorized reseller, it's fake (or very very expensive if it's real).

    I bought from a trustworthy cite and they are buying and getting them from america or etc. It won't be a problem I bought lots of things from that cite.
