    Highlights of the Story

    • Airpods Pro are an amazing device, however, if you have received a Fake one via an Online/Offline store. It immediately gets complicated.
    • Here are a few things that you need to keep in mind while buying an Airpods Pro.

    We all have to agree that the Apple Airpods Pro is an exceptional earbud, and because it is outstanding, it has multiple evil twins, aka fake Airpods. So, have you recently bought an Apple Airpods pro and wondered if the product is original or not? There is a quick and effective way to check its originality. This article has broken down how to check the original Apple Aipods pro in nine steps. Let’s see…

    Check the box

    The trick lies with the Airpods Pro box; the fake and original boxes are similar in look and feel. However, here are a few differences that we have noticed in the fake Apple Airpods pro box.

    Fake Vs Original:

    1. The fake box has a hologram on the front. However, the original one doesn’t come with any hologram sticker or anything.
    2. The original box has a laminated AirPods pro sticker on the top. However, the fake box has a printed sticker, and you can quickly feel the difference.

    Check box content

    Both the boxes mostly have similar content in terms of items, i.e. instruction manual, cable and inside packaging material. However, here is the difference.

    Fake vs Original

    1. The instruction manual in the original box has a slightly crips font and premium colour printing. However, the fake box comes with a low paper quality instruction manual.
    2. The Fake box has a cheap cable quality; you can feel it just by holding the cable.
    3. The inside material of the box in the fake one is made of plastic, and in the original one, it is made of paper.

    Check Airpods & Case

    Here’s where the trick to identifying fake AirPods lies. Despite the Airpod case being the same, “Designed by Apple in California” printing is the same. There is one small difference between both the Airpods. The original one is manufactured in Vietnam, written as “Apple Vietnam”, and the Fake has printing of “Apple Japan”.

    In the case, you’ll be able to notice the battery specs as well. The original Airpod has printing of 519mAh battery. However, the fake Airpod has printing of a 598mAh battery.

    Check serial number

    In the fake Airpods, you’ll get the same serial number everywhere, including the Airpod case, left earpiece, right earpiece and the box. However, in the original Apple Airpods, you’ll get an exact serial number with an extra iteration. The last character of each part will have a sequence letter with the same serial number, precisely like a bundle of serial-wise notes.

    In addition, if you open the setting app, you’ll see a different serial number in the fake Airpods pro. However, in the original Airpods pro, you’ll be able to see the same serial number on the box and the setting menu.

    Check Build Quality

    There is no doubt that the original Airpods pro, which cost around INR 25,000, would be precisely similar to a Fake Airpod that is just 1,500. However, you’ll be able to notice some minor differences only if you have seen or used the original Airpods. Such as the flap sound of the Airpod case and the ear tip of the Airpod.

    Check Airpods Pro connectivity

    The original Airpods pro and the fake Airpods Pro have instant pairing features. This means you can open the Airpods in front of any iPhone, and it will automatically get connected. However, since the original AirPods are synced with your Apple Id, it automatically gets connected to all your devices without additional input, and you can switch earphones quite easily. However, you’ll have trouble switching devices with Fake AirPods.

    ANC feature

    You’ll not get the ANC feature in the fake Airpods because it is fake, and this level of features is expensive to implement. So, if you turn on the transparency mode from the iPhone, you’ll not be able to notice any difference. However, the original Airpods will work fine.

    Check buttons

    The original Airpods Pro have pressure sensitive buttons, so you would have to slightly squeeze the stem of the Airpods pro to pick up a call or play pause music. However, in the Fake Airpods, you’ll have the touch sensitive button.

    Latency

    We also checked the latency of the Airpods Pro, and the result is pretty clear. The original Airpods are smooth, and the connectivity is quite quick. However, in the fake Airpods, there is a lag in playing music.

    Charging

    In the original Airpods Pro, you’ll get a device charging notification if you have put your Airpods on charging. However, in the original one, you’ll not get any ping when charging your device.

    In the end

    These are some ways to identify Fake Airpods from the original Airpods. However, the key thing to note here does not just look and feel; it is also the sound quality of the Airpods Pro. The original ones will always perform much better compared to the Fake AirPods and will have increased battery life thanks to the optimisation of the iOS and Apple hardware. So our recommendation would be to skip buying fake Airpods and get a good quality TWS earphone at the same price range; it will have a warranty, good sound quality and features you can trust.
