What does that that even mean.

They don't "seem to be real" - it's either a genuine item with all signs of what a genuine item should be, or a counterfeit where they've manage to copy only some aspects of the original.

You uploaded a single crappy picture, but it appears the left headphone in the right pair is the only real AirPods Pro while the rest are all fake.

Save yourself from headache and stress and buy them from official/authorized store. I had a counterfeit and have a genuine OEM and while they look very very identical, the sound from the counterfeit are trash. The seller selling the counterfeits always keep telling you the sound sounds like OEM but all I can say: their ears are either dead, or they are stupid to believe that or they keep lying or all at once. The OEM sound are much better and relaxed.

Whether they're fake or not, better In-Ears can be had for the price. Airpods are not a sound investment, nor have they ever been. The $20 Moondrop Chu's wipe the floor with them, among others.

You honestly had me scratching my head with this comment and I just wanted someone else to tell you instead of personally replying.
You do not understand what "ALL" means.

The right set of AirPods Pro are OBVIOUSLY fake. They do not have the proximity sensors, and the way the serial numbers have been written inside the case are identical to known counterfeits.

The right ones do have proximity sensors. they are just not visible when they are in the case.

The serial number point is interesting - can you provide evidence/source this?

I wish there were cheaper alternative earbuds for me needs. Why earbuds is because I like to watch movies/series on my phone at nights so I usually rest my head on the cushion for example. Due to the ergonomic design, I don't feel them at all which is exactly what I need. The Airpods non-Pro are the only one that suits my needs. Airpods are indeed not a sound investment and will never be.

There's probably (a better) way to confirm legitimacy: if you have an iPhone or someone else in your family or friends group, connect it through bluetooth and go to settings - general and you should see the info with 'Apple'. If not, it's fake.

Djeez, those fuckers really try hard. At the time when I checked that, it's been over a year ago.
