This site offers discounted Beats by Dre products.  I fell for it looking for a good deal.  I completed my purchase and received what I thought was a confirmation email.  The site offered drop ship services so I inquired as I am an online merchant always looking for products to add to my inventory.  I received an email from Christopher Pham with a photo of a random white guy a gmail name associated with the photos "David Muller".  I was immediately tipped off that something was not right.  "Christopher" informed me that they could offer drop ship and also had another site called easyinbeauty.com.  So, I went to that site and it was an exact copy of the beatsofdre.net site.  The testimonials were exactly the same just having changed the website name in the review and products.  They goofed on a few though and had testimonials on their beauty site for headphones and on headphone sites for beauty products. [continued below]....
.....  The testimonials were in the exact same order with the exact same names.  It was a copy and paste job.

I sent an email to "christopher" asking him if their products were fake.  I asked for a straight up answer because lets face it, if this guy is just trying to make a living and missed a few details on his sites which in turn made them look fake so be it.  I understand that small business operators get over whelmed and sometimes miss details in a hurry to launch a website and make money.  "Christopher" did not respond to that question.

Increasingly suspicious now I started to research the domain registration.  The site was registered within the year, NOT in business for 6 years as the site claims.  I did received a shipping notice so I asked for tracking.  "Christopher" replied and said that as soon as they received the tracking from the carrier he would send it to me.  What?  Tracking is generated the second a package is labeled and provided TO the carrier.  So, I asked again.  

I waited 24 hours and then sent an other email.  Again, where is tracking on these supposedly heavily discounted, best price on the internet headphones....I got nothing.  I called the numbers listed on both beatsofdre.net and easyinbeauty and they were disconnected.  I was able to track down another number in Columbus MO and started calling it.  Surprise, straight to voicemail!  No return call.  

I am working with my bank to get my money back.  I sent "Christopher" a not so nice email telling him I am a legitimate online retailer and I will work to take him down.  In the mean time dont buy this stuff.  Do not buy from this site.  All signed lead to fake fake fake!

Good Fakes

AUTHOR: InsuranceAdjuster - (United States of America)

Sadly, the fact of the matter is the company involved (Monster) has stated multiple times that the products these websites offer are FAKE. 

So if you want headphones that LOOK like Beats by Dre, you could perhaps use this website. Though I would worry about other issues people have mentioned. Further there are cheaper fake Beats on the web. 

These do not WORK like Beats By Dre, Monsters patented Base technology is most certainly NOT in the headphones from beatsofdre.com/net. I can not say how good/bad the tech in these headphones is, but it is not what they are advertising. Don't use this website, and its a shame someone would recommend  it. Though i'm not surprised no name has been given to the comment either.

beatsofdre.net

AUTHOR: anonymous - (United States of America)

as a frequent online consumer i am constantly looking for online deals.  beatsofdre.net offered really great deals with free shipping.  i readily ordered, giving all credit card info and waited for a confirmation email. no email was forthcoming.  thus i looked up reviews for said company and found one on this site.  everything this consumer said was true.  this company operates multiple sites, there's never anyone available to live chat or call. you can message them and they will respond, but i doubt you will feel comforted by their response. 

however, i am a very satisfied customer.  not only did i recieve the products ordered but they sent them express mail.  This company may not be as professional as the many others i have dealt with, but thankfully they did not rip me off.

UPDATE - CREDIT CARD FRAUD FOLLOWS PURCHASE!!! DO NOT BUY FROM THIS WEBSITE OR ANY OTHER THIS ONLINE RETAILER OWNS

AUTHOR: PinkDiscount - (United States of America)

Buyers beware.   We told this online merchant that we needed to return all products and were provided with an address in Columbia MO.  The products are counterfeit!  The retailer provided an address that matched the one on their website.  As soon as the items were on the way our bank advised that we also dispute the transactions with our credit card company and have our card turned off.  So, we did.  Once we did this the retailer was nearly impossible to work with.  They changed their return address on their website and told us we sent products to the wrong address.  Luckily we had a screen shot from the site prior to their changes as well as their email telling us where to send them.  They then said they had sold the site and told us to return the products to CHINA saying if they were received in Columbia MO they would be refused or thrown away.  Then, they threatened to close their bank accounts so that we would win our dispute and receive our refund.  Luckily we won the dispute, as we should have, and thought this was all over.  NO!  Almost immediately the online merchant began using our other bank card, one we used in an early transaction that was NOT disputed, charging thousands of dollars from their other websites as if we were buying products.  They also attempted to use the card to make large online purchases at buy.com and an online cell phone retailer.  Wells Fargo called us immediately to let us know this was going on and everything was declined as fraud except for about $600 which we are fighting to get back.  Do not buy from beatsofdre.net.  The other sites this person owns are beatsofdre.com, easyinbeauty.com, hairstylemalls.com, mbtfootlocker.com.  Dont give them any credit card information.  You will be sorry!
