My fear is that these are knock off units since this is a third party seller through newegg. They aren't listed as a authorized reseller of B&O so definitely no warranty and questionable return policy.

This listing is complete bullshit, the seller is a third party - not Newegg - and has only one feedback on Newegg. Clearly a fake feedback at that. This is an obvious scam and/or speaker is a fake bang and olufsen. Anyone that buys this thinking they are getting a genuine b&o speaker is an idiot.

in this instance i feel the paranoia but a deal from new with GC = it's newegg verified merchant, so even if low feedback, i think they are fine Smilie

A scammer goes to the trouble of making fakes in 3 different colors? Nah.
I bet you $99.00 this is a B&O speaker.

What are you talking about?? They don't make the speakers themselves, they are fake knockoffs from China. Just like the fake Bose and fake Beats crap that are all over the place. I assure you this is a scam, but enjoy wasting your money and getting your personal info stolen.

This seller has one feedback rating, this is the equivalent of buying from an eBay seller with zero feedbacks or an amazon seller that has "just launched". They're scammers. Even if the speaker is somehow an actual b&o speaker and not a counterfeit, there is no warranty listed under the warranty/returns section, the seller charges a 10% restocking fee, and according to the b&o website they are not an authorized seller, so no b&o warranty. So there is no warranty at all, if you return the speaker it cost you $10 plus you pay return shipping, that's if you even get the speaker from them haha. Everything about this screams scam. If the seller was established at all or sold on amazon or another legit marketplace as well, I might bite. I want this deal to be legit more than anyone, I just don't see how it possibly could be. If someone has solid evidence this is legit or that this seller is even legit, I'm all ears

I googled their phone number and found it belongs to this company.

https://gotogreenline.com/index.p...r-partners

They list b&o as a partner. They also say they work with tmobile and Verizon who sell these speakers, so these are likely returned units from these companies. It makes me feel a little better about the authenticity, but still not sure about the warranty. I will use PayPal so that I have some protection if this transaction goes south.

Thank you for the info. I googled and found basically the same, but noticed they also distribute wholesale electronics from the Chinese market, which increases the likelihood these are counterfeit. this company "extended play" is just a distributor and not authorized by any brand as far as I can tell. Who knows until you have the speaker in hand, but against my better judgment I bought one via PayPal anyway, so if it's junk or fake at least I have PayPal protection.

Searching their Facebook page I found a few promising things. A picture from their new warehouse with pallets of B&O merchandise pictured and a blurb from last year about being the exclusive 3rd party distributor of B&O in the US.

I took the plunge on 2 units so I can do a stereo pair. Fingers crossed.

Oh god here we go, mine is still in transit so hoping I got what I ordered. Hoping it's genuine b and o and fully functional. How is your speaker so far? Authentic and working at least?

It was genuine and b&o through email says that greenline is their authorized refurbished distributor. They sent my second speaker out and all is now good. The speakers sound amazing.
