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.

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

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.
