OnePlus introduced its first truly wireless earbuds earlier this year in the form of the OnePlus Buds, and the OnePlus Buds Z followed a few months later. It hasn't been long since OnePlus released the Buds Z, but now the company is back with a stylish special edition that sets it apart from any other model on the market.

OnePlus Buds are failing left and right

OnePlus Buds are failing left and right

The OnePlus Buds might be great cheap Apple AirPods alternatives, but of course, that's only true when they actually work. It seems that many people who have purchased the $80 earbuds are experiencing a strange defect leaving the left earpiece completely silent, with no way to recover it. Affected customers are encouraged to exchange their Buds under warranty, though it looks like new units aren't immune to the issue, either.

HeyMelody, OnePlus Buds companion app, surfaces for non-OnePlus phones

HeyMelody, OnePlus Buds companion app, surfaces for non-OnePlus phones

It's been a few months since OnePlus released its first pair of truly wireless earbuds. The OnePlus Buds are pretty solid for the most part, but their lack of customization with older OnePlus and non-OnePlus devices has held them back. Last month, we learned more details about a companion app that would expand the functionality of OnePlus Buds to more devices. Today, it looks like the app itself has surfaced — although it's not exactly what we expected.

More info about the upcoming standalone OnePlus Buds app surfaces

OnePlus’s first truly wireless Buds do look like AirPods knockoffs, which even got them into trouble recently, but their price-to-performance ratio was pretty much on point. One of their bigger caveats is that you need a OnePlus phone even for basic customizations, leaving out a big chunk of non-OnePlus users. The company is preparing to fix that at last by releasing a dedicated app for the OnePlus Buds.

US Customs doubles down on OnePlus Buds seizure, says they violate Apple trademark

US Customs doubles down on OnePlus Buds seizure, says they violate Apple trademark

In a response sent to Android Police, US Customs and Border Protection has indicated it does not intend release a shipment containing thousands of OnePlus Buds headphones back to OnePlus. Instead, the agency is doubling down on its decision to seize the offending earphones, saying that they violate Apple's trade dress for its signature AirPods.

Somewhat notably, Apple's initial filings for trade dress of its headphones were denied by the USPTO, but later successfully registered after that decision was contested. Trade dress, which is a type of trademark that protects the distinctive look and feel of a product (as opposed to a name or logo), is often cited when in seizures of counterfeit goods.

US Customs and Border Protection racked up a win late last month, according to its most recent press release. On August 31st, the agency seized 2,000 counterfeit "Apple Airpod Earbuds" destined for Nevada at New York's JFK International Airport. The only problem: those are OnePlus Buds, as you can see in the poor images DHS provided.
