MobileTechMall is a Scam Their Beats Solo HD Headphones Prove it (Video)
Saturday, August 18th, 2012
MobileTechMall was featured on Woot.com’s community sourced deals with a set of Beats By Dre Solo HD headphones. These headphones were listed for $49.99 + shipping, and actually are still listed on Woot at the time of this article. There were many people that purchased these headphones and posted very negative reviews on them through Woot.
We were in that list of people and decided that since we have a relatively popular presence on the Internet that we should share our experience and expose MobileTechMall for the scammers that they are. MobileTechMall has claimed on numerous occasions that the Beats headphones that they are selling are just the original version of the popular headphones and are legit. This is not the case as we have reviewed them and noticed on our own pair that both sides of the headphones say “R”, since nobody has two right ears this was our first clue. Second clue is that they offer the headphones in yellow which is not a color that Beats offers. Moving on there is no “Solo HD” written anywhere on the headphones as they are on the real versions. As if this wasen’t enough the headphones have a wire coming down from each earphone instead of just on one side and the headphones themselves feel very cheap compared to the real Solo HD headphones.
If your interested in getting a set to look like you spent the money on a real set of Beats Solo HD’s then go for it but also keep in mind that the set we ordered just got delivered yesterday, over a month and a half after they were ordered. On top of this we tried on many occasions to contact MobileTechMall about the order with absolutely no response. They just showed up out of the blue and are worse than the cheapest headphones you have in your house already.
The moral of this story is MobileTechMall is a scam and while they will send you something that seems to be what you ordered (eventually) they will be knockoffs. If you have ordered anything that has not been the real deal that you thought you were getting let us know below via comments.
