OnePlus Silver Bullet

After discontinuing its bamboo StyleSwap covers earlier this week, OnePlus is taking another shot at the accessory market by announcing the Silver Bullet: a $15 pair of earphones that feature a brushed aluminium casing.

OnePlus touched upon the attention to detail it undertook in designing these earphones, stating that the "headphone jack was twisted 30,000 times in our quality assurance tests to ensure durability and longevity."

An interesting feature with the earphones is that they come with an in-line remote that features three buttons that allow you to control music playback controls, change volume and even take selfies. It isn't known whether this feature will work on devices other than the OnePlus One.

The earphones will be available in the 16 launch countries – US, Canada, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Netherlands, UK, Denmark, Sweden and Finland – for $14.99, with orders set to commence from next week.

If you're looking to score one for free, OnePlus is running a contest through which it is giving away 10 earphones. All you have to do is fill out this form to be eligible.

What do you guys think of the design of the OnePlus Silver Bullet earphones? Anyone interested in picking these up once they launch next week?
