More and more frequently, counterfeit AKG products are offered for sale through unauthorized sellers on online marketplaces, such as Amazon and Ebay, and other direct channels.
How to detect a counterfeit
At first sight, many visual and technical features (e.g., the AKG logo) of a counterfeit product may appear to be identical to the original. A closer look, however, immediately reveals the poor quality of components and workmanship of most counterfeits. Also offered for sale are models that are not, and never were, made by AKG or listed in the AKG catalog.
AKG grants no warranty whatsoever for, and will not repair, any counterfeit product.
Counterfeit products may not meet legal requirements in terms of materials, workmanship, and safety. AKG will accept no liability whatsoever for any damage that may be caused by such products.
The manufacturing and selling of counterfeit products violate competition laws, trademark rights, and corporate rights. The purchasing and importing of counterfeit products are not allowed, either and incur penalties ranging from seizure of the goods to high fines. AKG reserves the right to take appropriate legal action.
