Aren't most of the high-priced cables made in China anyways? Certainly the wire, if not the entire construction. Why would anyone in China bother actually counterfeiting these cables when it's far more effective to tap off the real factory line, cutting out all those pricey middlemen & cutting into their outrageous markups. Of course, nothing guarantees we're not talking about substandard/reject or badly "corner-cut" production here, even if off the "genuine" line.
The genuine product's packaging/boxing, however, is usually "proudly" made in the USA, or whatever country of origin the parent company would like you to believe. It's just not worth the trouble to counterfeit those believably, which is why they're absent. They're a de-facto "certificate of non counterfeit/non-grey-market-ness/authenticity".

I bought some of these China based "Nordost" cable for $60. The picture on the website showed the cable with the name Nordost on the cable. The cable I received did not have the name Nordost on the cable. Definitly counterfeit. Quality was about equal to a $60 cable. This is a scam
