It took years for China to mimic the "money-fast" fast-paced feature on the original AirPods, but with AirPods Pro, the number is only in weeks.
AirPods Pro has just released for a few days already has a cloned version, priced at a corner.
More precisely, recently, a True Wireless headset product called MX Pro has started to be sold in China with the price of only 66 USD, equivalent to about 1.6 million VND, much cheaper than the 250 USD of the store. "Goverment". That's why the MX Pro pair of headphones is almost 100% imitation of the design of AirPods Pro, plus fast connection technology, just bring up, open the lid of the box, iPhone, iPad identify immediately. This is an extremely appreciated feature when Apple just launched the AirPods, but until now, other brands are still struggling to imitate forever.
Counterfeit technology is so advanced that iPhones and iPads also recognize it as real.
In the trial video of the MX Pro headset, you can clearly see its design details and features. For someone who is not knowledgeable about technology and AirPods Pro, you will surely think they are identical, no different. However, after a review, WeBuy has noticed some noticeable differences to identify what is genuine and what is fake.
Although referred to as in-ear headphones, Apple designed the earplugs for AirPods Pro very differently than normal. The joint of the earplugs is shorter, bigger, with many layers of dirt barrier; The orifice is oval in shape and cannot be used with other buttons on the market.
Meanwhile, the counterfeit version uses the traditional button style. Just remove the button and immediately see the difference. You can take a closer look at the comparison image below:
Counterfeit goods (left) use the traditional style of earplugs, while genuine goods (right) are Apple's own standards.
Just a small detail, but it is enough to distinguish the two types of products. In the "genuine", Apple has made a little different than the previous two generations of AirPods with larger white plastic. Meanwhile, MX Pro ears copy the same life as the old AirPods.
The tail of the AirPods Pro genuine (right) has changed compared to the previous generation.
The charging box is poorly machined
The trial clip is quite low quality, the image is blurry, but it is enough for us to see some small processing errors, typically the capping joints for example. The plastic trim is not standard, so it looks a bit too dirty. On the real version, of course, there's never a place for trivial errors like this.
In addition, the shell material, buttons and LED light if held directly high capability is not as good as the real AirPods Pro.
The way to control music is different
In the trial clip of MX Pro, you can see people showing off the "touchy" touch controls such as removing the headset to stop the music or typing to play / pause and skip tracks. However, with the generation of AirPods Pro, Apple gave up the controls of typing on headphones. Instead, you have to touch the indentation of the stem. In addition, the genuine product also supports force sensors that MX Pro ears do not have.
AirPods Pro really have to click on the ear stem, not this old-fashioned touch.
Does not support active noise canceling and crosstalk mode
Of course, for only $ 65, how can Chinese companies bring proactive noise canceling to MX Pro? On the sales website, only the MX Pro has the "Physical Noise Reduction" feature, which means using the earplugs to block out the noise like many other in-ear headphones. This is the best and easiest way. so you can check if you are buying the wrong fake or not.
