U.S. customs seize 2,000 OnePlus Buds pairs in hilarious accident

CBP Seizes 2,000 OnePlus Buds, Calls Them

By all appearances, CBP forgot that Apple isn't the only company making sleek white wireless earbuds.

According to the CBP press release, which makes no mention of the OnePlus branding, the units originated from Hong Kong and were headed to Nevada, but were seized at JFK on August 31. That would be something, again, if these were actually counterfeit AirPods instead of OnePlus Buds that sell for $79.

Tonight, in what can only be described as a head-scratching moment, US Customs and Border Protection (CBP), posted a story and couple of Tweets bragging they recently seized 2,000 counterfeit Apple AirPods. The federal agency was crowing about its latest bust and claiming it had "seized 2,000 counterfeit Apple AirPods from Hong Kong", estimated to have carried a retail value of $US398,000 ($546,454).

While OnePlus has not issued any statement on the matter, it did reply to a tweet from the official US Border and Customs Protection account when it reiterated the details of the seizure on Sunday...

Trump baselessly questions climate science during California wildfire briefing

In a press release regarding the incident, Troy Miller, Director of CBP's New York Field Operations, said, "CBP Officers are protecting the American public from various dangers on a daily basis..."

CBP hasn't deleted or corrected the tweet, and the agency did not immediately respond to Gizmodo's request for comment.

As of now, it isn't clear if all of the 2,000 seized units were OnePlus Buds, though the images shared by the CBP clearly suggest that at least a few of them were.
