AN ALARMING NUMBER OF ELECTRONICS SOLD WORLDWIDE ARE EITHER FAKE, SMUGGLED OR REFURBISHED. LEARN HOW ELYQQ PROTECTS YOU.
It is you, the online shopperwho is most vulnerable to getting duped and ending up with a counterfeit product. Elyqq, in co-operation with its partner brands, has launched Cyprus' first campaign toeducate all our consumers about the risks of counterfeit headphonesin Cyprus. Elyqq and the owner company, Elytronic, have been in the business of marketing electronics for the past eleven years. Unfortunately in Cyrpus,there exists a rampant grey secondary market for electronicsand audio equipment. And in recent times, a drastic increase in the number of fakes available have been observed.
Bealert and warywhen you shop for electronics and follow these best practices.
FAKES MAY LOOK ORIGINAL BUT WILL NOT SOUND ORIGINAL
Many people who have bought fake or duplicate items don't realise it until they have a problem. Plastic mold and electronics designs are easy to duplicate, but the engineering, thorough research and development done by international brands to develop the world's best acoustics is invaluable. The intricate architecture of a good headphone from its driver unit to its speaker chambers down to the nuts and bolts are all inimitable. Protect yourself by purchasing from an authorized dealer.
CLAIMING WARRANTY, SERVICE OR SUPPORT IS IMPOSSIBLE ON A DUBIOUS PURCHASE
Fake or duplicate electronics will most likely stop working within a few months. This is because they are questionable in quality and do not use the premium materials of an original. Their users have no support or after sales service. Worse still they will not be able to claim warranty on such items. Elyqq (and Elytronic) actively engages with each of its partner brandsdirectly to ensure that you receive a brand new, sealed and 100% genuine product with all the service and after-sales support that you may need.
PUT YOUR FAITH IN VERIFIED, LEGAL AND AUTHORIZED RETAILERS
Many brands discourage consumers from buying products on dubious online marketplaces and some do not even honour warranty on purchases made. It is advisable to purchase electronics from only trusted retailers. Ensure every purchase is accompanied with a legal tax invoice which can be used to claim warranty. Every high-end electronics manufacturer usually imprints/assigns a serial number on each of their pieces for identification purposes. These serial numbers are used to authenticate the product and register it with the brand. Check for any scannable barcodes, logos or trademarks.
DON'T CHOOSE YOUR RETAILER BASED ON THE DISCOUNT ALONE
Choosing an electronics retailer merely based on discounts is probably not the best thing to do. If you know that a product is unreasonably discounted, it's more likely that the electronics are fake, stolen, or worse, smuggled. Many people don't realise the electronics they are using is fake until it is too late. You may also be putting your hearing health at risk with a fake.
