OnePlus Buds are $1 at 4 times today – AirPods alternative anyone?

Today the folks at OnePlus are making what appears to be a very, very limited number of their wireless earbuds available for one dollar. That's $1 instead of $79 for the OnePlus Buds, $1 instead of $50 for the Bullets Wireless Z, and "free shipping" for the OnePlus Buds Z throughout the day.

Part of the event seems to be focused on the DJI Store APP, which is available for Android and iOS devices now. The image used for this event is... not helpful. It features three boys holding an oversized paper airplane, walking in a desert near a sign that says DON'T PANIC. That's almost certainly a reference to the Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which also features the words DON'T PANIC printed in large bold letters on its front.
