Ladies beware of fakes being sold on Amazon.   I recently bought a pair of Sony headphones and they were fake.  They only worked for a little while and then I got no sound.   I bought them to use when I practice my piano.   I honestly thought my piano had packed up  :'( but it was the headphones.   I bought a new pair of rather expensive Panasonic headphones yesterday from my local electrical shop and they worked.

This make me wonder what else is being sold on Amazon that is a fake

Everything can be fake there  :( That is so annoying you got fake headphones.
I saw some tips how to identify if something is fake. To look at the logos, packaging, numbers etc. Luckily I haven't got anything fake from Amazon except memory card for my camera. Later I saw official packaging but card seems ok. Probably has less memory than advertised but that never bothered me.

The owner just became one of the wealthiest men in the USA. He bought Whole Foods, IMDb.com, Alexa.com, Goodreads, and several others. The keyboard I am waiting for is coming from this company because it is impossible here to find a music store that sells anything other than guitars & pianos.
We tried for a week. My gf would love to play the keyboard for relaxation & it is her birthday tomorrow.
