OnePlus announces its own set of affordable headphones
OnePlus, the creator of the affordable, yet highly spec'd out OnePlus One – has announced its own set of in-ear headphones. It's called the "Silver Bullet Earphones" and will be available at the start of next week, according to the announcement.

The headphones are touted to deliver a "powerful and immersive sound while ensuring a compact yet durable feel", and are encased in a pristine-looking brushed aluminum. The headset has its own remote, which would allow users to control music playback, the phone's camera, and voice calls. It is yet unclear whether these functions will only work with the OnePlus One, or with other Android handsets as well.

Keeping in line with its product philosophy, OnePlus has priced the headset to $15 – let's just hope these don't require an invite system. To celebrate the launch, OnePlus will be giving away 10 sets of the Silver Bullets. To participate in the giveaway, one must be a OnePlus forum member and fill out a form (link to thread can be found in the source below).

Speaking of the invite system – OnePlus has announced that it'll be moving away from it and will start selling its handsets via the good old pre-order system. The change should happen around the end of October, when the manufacturer's web shop will finally allow customers to buy the One without an invite. There will be a certain amount of handsets ready to ship, and once they're gone – it'll switch to pre-orders.

Probably made in the same factory and maybe even parent company.

Haha, you gotta be joking me. I bought them on Amazon (and yes, I did receive the real ones) because of all of the hyped up reviews. They do not even sound close. They sound like $20 earbuds, the extra $5 is acceptable since it has in-line controls. I have $60 AudioTechnica earbuds and they sound 10x better. They're not horrible for the price, but saying they are worth more is nonsense. But hey, if you prefer that sound profile, more power to you, I guess.

Nice. Should be available ASAP. They should update the phone's hardware now or lower the price.

Are you a troll or...... Cm11 was cool for one day and then all the problems roll up and take front row seats. Sorry bruh I'll pass. This phone is as good as the company that made it, and I'll give ya a hint, their company is full of f******* idiots.

Are you not using your eyeballs, are you blind? I've owned my one plus for months and while its fast, everything else sucks. I don't support s**tty bug filled operating systems or the fail ass company behind it. Its not one of the best, why? Because of money. Even after all the s**t HTC goes through they are still able to make a phone that rises above all the other more wealthy OEMs. One plus doesn't care about their product or their customer. They care about making money because they desperately need it
