US Customs thinks OnePlus Buds are ‘counterfeit Apple AirPods’


In a press release, CPB said the seizure is an example of how it is “protecting the American public from various dangers on a daily basis.” However, this instead seems to be a head-scratching error, as OnePlus is by now a well-known brand that has been selling smartphones and other products (including its Bullets earphones) in the US for years.

There’s no doubt that the Buds are very similar to AirPods, largely because of the color and stick-like appendage. However, plenty of other brands, including Oppo and even JBL, have “paid homage” to the famous design — and we haven’t heard of the CPB seizing those. In any case, OnePlus USA has definitely taken note of the issue and come back with a cheeky reply.
