I would verify using the site, but I want to read those reviews myself too. I read it as a grain of salt. Just one source of information. Can't completely trust that site.

I believe in fakespot. All it tells you is if the amount of reviews for a product were written by people who actually bought the product at full price vs people who got the product for free or at a reduced price (~$1-2).

With a high fakespot score you know that a good amount of the reviews are "bought" in that people were given free/discounted products for a review.

Now you can draw your own conclusions based on that information. Either you can believe that reviewers are actually leaving non-inflated scores for the products OR that by getting a product for free, reviewers are more willing to give out 4 or 5 star reviews.

Also, companies screen who they give out their products to review. They look at the average amount of stars you give products and your reviewer ranking on Amazon.

Being in the market for wireless headphones is awful. Every thread is more about shills and less about specs. Are headphones the main use of bought reviews or do other products do this as often and i never noticed?

Yes, Amazon is overrun with shills now. Wireless earbuds with the price of <$30 are mostly by companies who purchase the blueprints for a product, make a few tweaks, and then slap on their own logo. They have to pump up their reviews on amazon because no one wants to buy from an unknown company.

But this doesn't necessarily mean that the product is bad, I'm using a pair of $20 wireless earbuds that have worked well for 7 months. But of course, the quality control will vary greatly.

And yes pretty much every category on Amazon will have these "bought" reviews. You can typically tell if the product has a high fakespot %, <$20, and from an unknown company. Some common items are: earbuds, weight scales, USB cables, beauty creams, phone cases, selfie sticks, meat thermometers, supplements,

In this case, it is right on.

80 reviews.

Only 10 have the "Verified Purchase" tag.

Of the 10 Verified Purchases, 8 are admitted shills.

That means there are theoretically 2 legitimate reviews for this product. And those two seem like shills who forgot the disclosure.

97.5% of the reviews for this product were from people who either didn't buy through Amazon (yeah, right), or shills.


FYI, the reason we are seeing so many non-Verified Purchase reviews lately is due to tax purposes. If a company uses Amazon's reviews-for-free-stuff program, Amazon 1099s the shill when the value of the items exceeds $600. Not the price paid (often nothing). Not the regular price. The list price. That $10 set of Bluetooth headphones someone got for $0.01 might have been listed at $69.99. The shills are on the hook for the taxes on the full list price.
