Default Can I trust Newegg selling authentic headphones??

I have ordered several several headphones from Newegg because of Black Friday pricing. Now I am kinda skeptical about these products especially Sennheiser and Sony headphones, since there are so many generics created. Now both the Sennheiser site along with Sony site say that Newegg is an authorized dealer, but what bothers me is that they also listed Amazon.com which is notorious with 3rd parth selling off fakes!! Does Newegg do the same as third party sales?? I trusted Newegg in the past with computer parts, which is hard to replicate.... But the headphones are sooo notorious at copy n generic fakes out there. Any feedback would be nice

You obviously didn't see the time when NewEgg was shipping a bunch of fake Intel CPUs unknowingly.

However, NewEgg is quite the reputable source, I'd say you shouldn't worry.
