Are you referring to how long my purchase will take to arrive? Its coming to US from China, and since I review products for these guys, they usually send it to me using complimentary EMS service which is fast. But they also have a free shipping option (at least to US) which probably takes a few weeks just like any other typical ebay purchase.
But for sure I'm looking forward to review this pair of cans.

Just from all the pictures on dx site comparing to the one posted in this thread. I will know for sure once I have it; will do a more up close comparison and might even take a cap off to see the circuit underneath.
Beats really put a pressure on all SH retailers for selling knock off stuff. I have received and reviewed before Beats headphone knock off (from case-parts.com/tvc-mall.com), those were identical to the real thing. Now, they can't sell these on-line because of legal actions
So, I assume they all changed the name to "Syllable" and just modified "b" in there to a funky looking "s" which from a distance looks the same. But you can see its an exact looking headphones: http://dx.com/s/syllable
. This version has battery for active noise cancellation (just like 2012 version of beats), while the latest 2013 Beats are rechargeable, btw.
The question now, how does it sound... The look is nothing without a sound.

I think that if the manufacturer isn't going to put the real logo on, then quality/accuracy might not be the best.
As I mentioned in my previous post, Beats lawyer are all over the on-line places that sell and ship to US knock offs of their products. I assume that's what triggered "Syllable" change (http://dx.com/s/syllable
). Again, it's also my assumption these will be identical to the one in your picture because of the price. DX has some of the cheapest prices, down to ebay level, so if they price cans for $60 - its gotta be quality. So, once I'm going to receive those, I will do a very careful examination and pictures using your post as a reference to determine if all the details are the same. Sounds like you done a great study and have an extensive experience with those knock offs. Wow, and you got so many of those already? Do you have real Beats as well? Were you comparing it to real beats? You mentioned sound quality was better, so again I assume you have real $300 Beats and can do a/b comparison. Awhile back I received one of the beat earbud knock offs, back when case-parts.com use to carry it: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...15327974430631
- I wasn't impressed with a sound, but everybody said that's exactly how real beats sound. At the same time, I also ordered and compared Otterbox Defender from them, and next to the real one - it was identical. I guess you can replicate physical parts, and maybe do reverse engineering on a circuit, but the drivers itself? wouldn't that be tough to match?
