Wow! Well, I've been copied...
These pics were shared from Germany, the cables were purchased from ebay with the seller's address in Germany. The cables look like a poor copy so I'd guess this is a small scale enterprise, probably one guy copying a bunch of different cables and selling them on ebay. I was told the seller has multiple brands of cables for sale, they are probably all fake.
Some easy ways to tell they are fake: The plugs are not the same ones I use, the label isn't signed "Dave" above the ZenWave Audio, the model of the cable isn't on the label, the handwriting is a poor copy, my cables have a layer of pure cotton (or silver shielding material) under the techflex.
If anyone is not certain feel free to check with me, you can send pics to dave at zenwaveaudio.com
Here's some pics of the fake cables:
Plugs are not the same, in some early cables I used gold plated plugs but they were FP-101 or FP-126 Furutech models. I also use Caig progold or Furutech nano-liquid to protect the termination, not the black stuff in the photo:
No model number on the back of the label, no "Dave" signed either:
Writing is a poor copy:
The entire cable looks like a machine made cable with the outer jacket removed near the ends, my cables are handbuild with pure cotton filler so are soft and light compared to a machine made cable and the cable tapers near the ends instead of a sharp reduction in diameter:
