At the end of August, the US PTS announced that it was able to successfully seize a batch of 2 thousand pairs of headphones, which are fake AirPods from Apple. They were shipped from Hong Kong and taken to New York. However, after a while it turned out that the customs officers made a mistake. In fact, brand new OnePlus Buds arrived in the country, the total cost of the batch exceeded 158 thousand dollars. The US CBP even showed a photo of the headset itself and the retail box, confirming the lack of communication with AirPods.

On the web, users began to criticize the actions of the department for the inability to distinguish between visually different products. In the official Twitter of the OnePlus USA representative office, via the social network, they asked to return the headphones.
