Petition for JBL E+1 Earphones

    Transparant , Oct 27, 2014 :
    Hello everybody!

    First of all, I don't know if there's a thread on this already.
    The search button is broken, so I had no resources to research this case.

    As you might've seen by reading the title, this thread is meant as a petition on the JBL E+1 Earphones.
    I am okay with the fact that only people who are preordering the OnePlus One right now are the only ones who can buy the Earphones at the moment due to the limited supply.
    What I am not okay with though, is the fact that they are the ones to buy them at a massive discount.
    It seems like the people who weren't active in the community and thus were not able to get an invite are getting rewarded for this!
    I would like to see a discount for people who have ordered the phone with an invite as well, although I know there might be a problem with this in terms of money and costs.
    Although the problem might be there, I would like to say it feels like we are in a disadvantage because we ordered the phone with an invite.

    To me, it feels like the people who have bought the OnePlus One using an invite are the ones who should really get the discount. I do not want to buy another device, just to get the Earphones for a good price!
    This is why I'd like to see a discount or at least a price drop for the people who did actually buy the phone by winning/earning an invite, the people who have fought for their phones!

    I want to give a big Thank You to the people who will sign my petition!

    PS: Note to Staff Members and Mods --- If there is no possible way to achieve this, I would like to get an explanation why this is not possible. Thanks in advance!

    I agree, most early adopters like myself have been given the cold shoulder by OP. Especially since we help improve the overall experience of the phone by making bug reports and helping other people out.

    Are these really worth the hype? I have a pair of in-ear sennhesiers ones which are fantastic so didn't bother ordering these.

    I have a pair of SkullCandy 50/50s but after 3.5 years of service the right earbud is giving up. I'd like to replace them with the JBL E+1 earphones, but I just find the advantages the people who preordered get unfair.

    forgive me if I'm wrong, but this is a Chinese firm you're talking about. Change.org will do nothing to help. However I do agree with you, they should have some perks for loyalty, especially for early adopters. I just had my friend get me a pair of discounted JBL E+1's with his PreOrder.

    They indeed won't really do anything to help me.
    I just find it a more clear way to send the message though!

    I'm about 100% sure OnePlus will look at this. When a big amount of people sign something, it means they're doing something wrong. This is (luckily!) not about software/hardware, so it'll not become the same shit as the yellow band hype.

    I'm also about 100% sure OnePlus will lower prices, especially for "early-supporters"

    I have this problem a couple of times as well every time I try to edit my Signature. Just wait a while and the problem will fix itself ;)

    My underastanding is that the extra P&P costs prevent them from selling the headphones for lower price while by sending them with the phone saves them some money.

    Totally agree that they need to take care of the early adopters as well. Selling the accessories with deep discount to only PreOrder customers will not make the early adopters happy for sure.
