These are available, brand new, for $12.33 right here https://store2.homeyotstore.com/products/koss-portapro-on-ear-headphones-silver-blue-black?utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=googlepla&variant=47883614598
That's about a third of the massdrop price.

Are these for real? Not some low quality imitation?

I'm not sure. All I know is one quick Google search showed me a lot of vendors selling these headphones for cheaper than massdrop. Massdrop is usually great with their prices, so I'm not sure what's going on here lol

I haven't bought them, so I don't know anything for sure. It's possible they are fake immitations, but the number of vendors selling them for cheaper than massdrop is concerning.

Who do you believe? Massdrop VS Random online retailers with item description like this:
"Key Specs Headphone Fit On-Ear Wireless No Built-In Bluetooth No Warranty Parts Limited lifetime Labor Limited lifetime General Ear Cushion Material None Additional Accessories Included Carrying case Color Category Multi Dimension Cord Length 3.9 feet Design Behind The Neck No Adjustable Headband No Foldable Design Yes Feature In-Line Volume Control No In-Line Control Yes Sound Isolating No Audio Sensitivity 101 decibels adjusted Minimum Frequency Response 15 hertz Maximum Frequency Response 25 kilohertz Impedance 60 ohms Driver Type Dynamic Circumaural Or Supra-Aural Supra-aural Noise Cancelation Type None Connectivity Connector Size 1/8 in. (3.5mm) Other UPC 021299147764 "
The answer is quite clear. This item is easy to imitate given the time it has been out in the market. The imitators have perfected their craft by now.

I trust Massdrop as far as quality and authenticity, definitely.
As far as price goes, Massdrop is usually the lowest, but not always. From time to time I see a Massdrop item priced higher than the original product. It's always good to compare prices.

true that MD not always beat amazon. Let's just look at the final price on MD and decide then. Cheers!
