$50 OnePlus Icons are the latest earphones from OnePlus

New-age phone makers these days don’t just make phones, but also almost every possibly accessory that they think you might have to use with one.

In this case, OnePlus, makers of the new OnePlus X smartphone and the OnePlus 2 from earlier this year, have announced a new pair of earphones in the Icons.

The OnePlus Icons appear to be slightly higher-end than the first pair of earphones from the company, the Silver Bullets. And that reflects in the price too; the Icons aren’t dirt cheap, but instead $49.99 for a pair.

The earphones use the in-ear design, and come in Gold and Graphite colors and feature a standard three-button configuration with the inline control which also has a mic. OnePlus reckon that the Icons are compatible with all of their phones, and most Android devices.

      Can't be cheap to produce wich such a low THD. Except if this value is fake.

    Yaks(on the design), I don’t think its good idea for the phone makers to jump in to copy what Xiaomi is doing. Apart from the price and extra unnatural bass from the piston theirs are also at best mediocre.
