Default Need help on Quadbeat 2 headphones

I recently purchased a Hong Kong unlocked G3 D855 from an Asian seller. The phone is great but the headphones that came with it sounds like crap. I googled some pictures of the Quadbeat 2 and the buttons on it does not look like mines. I'm wondering if the seller switched the originals out for some cheap knock offs. Or does the headphones really sound terrible?

I have some pics here to show what mines look like. The main thing is the volume control piece. Nowhere in Google can I find a Quatbeat 2 that looks like mine, with the + and - engraved instead of sticking out, and the center is suppose to be a dot, not a phone. There also seem to be some defect on the jack piece leading out to the cable. And there is a big piece of spur on the buds when I take the rubber piece off

Can you guys help me confirm that all your headphones does not look like mines?









Thanks in advance

Also you'd look different it could be due to it being the international model, however I think they should still be the same.

The differences:
The volume buttons are not engraved on mine and there is no phone icon.

The base of the plug kinds different.

Other than that they look about the same.

Thanks for taking the time to do that. Another guy on another forum mentioned the sound quality is pretty much crap. Is this true for yours?

I like the sound quality of mine. I really have been very happy with them. Mine are the same as the description by Pilz

The sound quality is average, they sounds better than the apple ones. I don't mind using them as a back up to my Bose ones.

Really? I love the Earpods. I honestly don't like the feeling of stuffed ear but they should at lease sound decent, which these are not. These have lots of mids but average highs and terrible lows. Pretty much the same sound from any low end headphones. The worse thing is when the cable touches anything, the sound is transferred into my ear and magnified ten fold! Oh well...

Thanks again for the replies guys. Really appreciated.

I can confirm my quadbeat 2 looks exactly like Pilz. The wires split in 2 at the LG centerpiece.

For a stock earpiece, I'm surprised they sound very good. Nowhere near like my Atrio Pro MG7, but decently good enough for me to take it to the gym.

I don't like the feeling of them to be honest. The squishy rubber isn't that bad, but I generally just use my Bose freestyles (like the SIE2's) for day to day use. The quadbeats are still good enough for everyday use. The sound isn't fantastic, but then again its not washed out. They are as average as a cheapish pair of headphones come.
