    Hi again,
    I stumbled across some very weird Romeos, and since I've never had one and don't know the history, I thought I'd ask before anything else. I found 2, one has a glossy carbon finish with purple lenses, and the other has a gold finish with torch? lenses, I do believe they might be fake, but it is worth asking, what do you think?

    Yeah, I have that feeling. He seems very sketchy with his photos, no pics of the nose or the screws. I guess they are one of those look a like fakes

    The ends of the ear stems are curved out, that's the first tell tail sign that they are fake

    All completely fake... the flare out earstem tips are a dead giveaway.

    Oh, I didn't knew that applied for Romeos, thanks for the info. I guess I was blinded by the price tag ($300), thank you for snapping me out of it

    I love the answer the seller just gave me about the missing serial and the stems, translated from spanish: "I never new these were supposed to have a serial #, but the serial is useless, nobody cares about those numbers. Ad the stems bend with time, that's normal."
    Yeah... thanks man, your answer seems very reasonable. I guess that's what I get for trying to save a few buck on a Romeo. Lesson learned, Thanks again fellas
