How to recognize a genuine HomePod?
Hi everyone ! Haven’t been posting in a while.
My mom reached to me for a question that I couldn’t answer for once.
She bought 2 HomePods at a pretty great deal off Rakuten. I’m myself a HomePod owner (one English and one EU version) and I was quite surprised when she told me she wasn’t able to plug it in.
They were delivered with a cable that doesn’t look like a genuine HomePod cable + international plug to EU adapter.
She had only unboxed one of them so she messaged me with the other one. Box looks genuine, packaging looks the same as genuine ones and yet, the cables are tickling me. She plugged the first one with the adapter and it looks like it works just fine and sound quality too but I can’t get to think that given the low price (250$ per pc) and the cable situation, there’s something wrong with them.
Could anyone relate to that ? Or provide hints to find fake homepods vs genuine ? Or comment on that cable ?
