Has anyone been able to get the JBL E1+ ear buds directly from the one plus one site (or any where else?, I know I could use youshop but why pay for postage twice...)

Alternatively, what ear buds would people recommend? (my CX70's sounded rubbish against the oneplus, the stock Samsung that came with my s4 sound better, but also aren't great....)

I randomly received an invite yesterday on their website, so I ordered myself the 64GB sandstone black one, and I am using the Youshop US address and the Chine one would not be accepted on the OPO website for some reason.

So far I understand that once Youshop receives my mobile I will need to pay them $28 to send it here, does anyone have any tips for me to avoid duty? Seems like people who claim it as $349 don't get import duty? Can you get a fine for declaring it with the wrong value?

Will trade information for information laughing

I've ordered myself the following also from eBay:

1 x TUDIA Slim-Fit CYGEN Dual Layer Protective Case for OnePlus One

1 x ORZLY PREMIUM 0.24mm GLASS SCREEN PROTECTOR FOR ONEPLUS ONE SMARTPHONE

Will post my thoughts on them when I need to use them.

People were doing 299US + 28NZ shipping which came under the $400nz however that was when the exchange rate was better.

For things like this its best to just say what it is, sometimes you will get hit sometimes you won't.  But you should always budget for duty to be added if its over the $400.

Trying to dodge paying it is not a good look :P

You'll be waiting halway - 3/4 through next year. The One is still a great phone for the price. Another preorder window on the 17th November means you could acquire one without an invite.

Got the latest invite last night, can't say there is much difference if any.

The only problem I had was in Google maps where pinch zoom was sending you half way across the world, but this could of also been resolved with the new version of Google maps.

As mentioned just earlier - I would be keen if others are keen on it.

Also, I have 2 more invites remaining - they are valid for another 5 days. Please let me know if anyone is actually going to use it to get the phone. PM me with your email address and I will share the invite.

Any of those invites left? I'm new here but can absolutely guarantee the invite will not go to waste!
