After recently canning their long awaited StyleCovers, OnePlus have added another accessory to their modest list, announcing the “Oneplus Silver Bullet Earphones”.
The introduction in the OnePlus Forums says that they’ve engineered the earphones (earbuds) to feel compact and durable, while still providing users with an immersive sound experience. Great, but what does that actually mean?
The controller on the earphone cable has access to music control, calls (as you’d expect) and the camera “without the need to reach for your phone”. What taking photos of the inside of your pocket is going to do for anyone, I’m not quite sure yet?
Continuing their seemingly ongoing quest to deliver quality products at cheaper prices, OnePlus have announced that they’ll be pricing these earphones at the fairly low price of US$14.99
Most of the circles I travel in have a good set of headphones for music, earbuds for running or perhaps both so it will be interesting to see how well a cheap earphone set is received for the aesthetic pleasure of having it match up with your phone.
This new accessory comes on the back of only last week, pulling production on the Oneplus Style Covers following some production and quality issues that (potentially) could also leave your phone damaged.
Regardless it’s a good sign that OnePlus are looking to continue the growth of their brand. Even after a step backwards, they’re working towards delivering great products to users. The fact they had the confidence to remove an accessory from production shows that they care about the customer experience when it comes to accessories, and are trying to stand by their motto; Never Settle.
Are you one of the lucky ones on the Oneplus list of users? Will you buy the Silver Bullet Earphones to complement your device?
