Amazon is the WORST in terms of refurbished items.

They literally just REPACK old dirty & used items and ship it to buyers. It’s like a lottery, 1 out of 100 buyers will receive a good, clean & working item.

I have bought a lot of refurbished & UNBOXED items from 2gud.com, and all of those items were BRAND NEW.

Once I bought a wired headphone (Skullcandy, on the ear) for just 300 which was of REFURBISHEDGOOD grade. “Refurbished-good” means that the item was used extensively and bears scratch marks BUT I received a completely NEW UNUSED headphone!

I can vouch from experience that if you buy unboxed or refurbished (superb) grade items from 2gud, you will never regret your decision. Don’t buy an item at high price, you will find the same item at ridiculously low price if you browse that site daily.

I had added the above OnePlus buds Z in my wishlist and it was again in stock now at 1 am so went ahead and bought it! I know it’s a huuuge gamble buying refurbished from Amazon, let’s wait and watch.

It depends on the seller you’re purchasing from
I would any day prefer those direct repackaged returns instead of refurbished stuff you get from other sellers/2gud (2GUD is no longer reliable after eBay.in to 2Gud transition.. You may still opt for unboxed/superb condition items which will be the case (Unboxed*) w/ majority of the Appario. listings
About the lottery, i would say 1/100 from Appario. Would be unclean or defective items.. That’s how my experience has been purchasing tons of renewed items.. I don’t even remember when i last time even opted for a replacement/return ..i think this should clear all the doubts grinning

Anyways i have already got two of these buds z.. in terms of usage, its zero or minimal. Even the accessories were intact (the extra ear tips were missing though from my second order laughing.. Its possible that you might get one without a type-c cable) @playdime

Thanks for pointing me to that thread.
Few points from my experience. Pretty long but thought its useful.

Indian return policies were revised in 2016 or so and are very stringent for almost all electronic goods. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO RETURN THEM IN INDIA I am not sure how sellers get unboxed items. Either they come from US or EUROPE as they accept returns even if we dont l8ke them unlike india where we have to prove them defective and ofcourse will be turned down by the so called technicians in guise.

Amazons refurbished bisinees.
1) Get the global unboxed items and other 2nd hand items together.
2) Ensure no NA OR EUROPE PRODUCTS NOT IN THEM AS THEY MEDIUM QUALITY ITEMS THERE ARE CONSIDERED SUPER IN INDIA.
3) Leave those who require india plugs and voltages.
Prey indian customers – start with unboxed first

1.. Intially when appario sends good unboxed products for initial few and after reviews are posted they start 2nd batch.

2.They club new reviews with renewed item reviews after few months.

3. Start selling and send 2nd batch of items. We start buying looking at site and youtube reviews.

NOTE: YOURUBE REVIEWS ARE BIG FRAUD RHAT APPEAR JUST BEFORE 1-2 DAYS IN ADVANCE. THISE ARE GOOD FOR NOTHING.

Many rhings to write but tired. 5his is a big vicious circle.

We as dimers can only buy after a felliw dimers suggest, but with a careful watch.

Thats all folks

This is how the loop goes.

If you observe

Wow your words portray how much tired you are, night shift or what?

By the way, you have made some serious allegations on Amazon and Appario seller! It’s a real eye opener, but I can’t imagine how Amazon"mixes" new reviews with old, the product listings are totally different for new and refurbished items?

Still I would personally vouch for 2GUD.COM and especially for"UNBOXED LIKE NEW" grade items. I was never disappointed once by 2gud. Do note that the original packaging will be torn and mutilated even in “unboxed” grade items, sometimes a minor item like cable etc may be missing but the main item will always be there and in untouched condition!

You mean you already bought 2 OnePlus buds Z REFURBISHED from Amazon? Why 2? It’s because of guys like you that it keeps going out of stock stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye. Just kidding.

Can you tell me how’s the sound quality in terms of frequency response, is it better or worse than earphones with APT-X? I never had any earphones with APT-X, is it worth spending more money?

2 is the Max seller can offer w/o getting your account flagged laughing
Anyways.. these have got super demand, if you got a defective product then max you can do to opt for refund (best part about Appario. – Refund/Replacement w/o any questions).. replacement depends on your luck. If its a great deal.. then you’re gonna end up being disappointed if the one you ordered ends up being defective (Rare case though*). Also majority of the times, there will be only 1 instock, should be very fortunate to find available stock more than two
So yeah.. Opt for 2.. return/keep one depending on your requirement

About sound quality it is decent, there are not many TWS available w/ apt-X support.. AAC is more than enough
// Is it worth spending more money? //
It is.
Sounds better than the original OP Buds because of better sound isolation
Battery life is about 20-25% lesser but the charging can recharge your buds for 3/4 times + the case supports fast charging!

Chill out dude, i just wrote “allegations” cuz that’s what came up in my mind. I am not an advocate for Amazon, in fact I just cursed them in a dedicated discussion last month.
They have stopped providing protective packaging for big and heavy items, they just paste a tiny envelope on the package to Thank us for protecting the environment and OPTING for no- packaging, I even complained them & repeatedly told the seller to provide packaging but No!

Since covid lockdown, Amazon India has deteriorated in terms of customer satisfaction, nowadays I make unboxing videos of every Amazon parcel because i don’t trust them anymore!

i am not saying, you advocate.
business model and customer satisfaction are myths in India.

all business models changed after pandemic.

i personally took lot of pains to reach icici cc otherwise v.good b4 pandemic.

not able to reach ajio,jio,jiomart,hdfc, hsbc,sbi, sbi refund cc at all. only mails and whatsapp.

here it is:
https://www.amazon.in/dp/B07B6NPFHM/ref=cm_sw_r...

except looking at seller and if anyone mentions, difficult to find which is new which is refurbished review

Wow that’s a cheap tactic by Amazon, I suspect they are doing it (mixing refurbished & new reviews) particularly for Amazon brand items by cleverly Changing the TYPE of product. Even when I knew that those reviews in your link (fire tv) were mixed, it was almost impossible to segregate. And just because I knew it beforehand (thanks to you) I tried to FILTER REVIEWS by type:fire TV stick, then all the results were of refurbished item.

But  obviously I would have never suspected it on my own, even though I browse and shop on Amazon daily, I was blind to this issue, thanks for sharing the eye opening facts!

This is not intentional
Renewed & Refurbished are two different things
Prior to Cloudtail India & Appario Retail opted for different Renewed seller profiles.. “Used-Like New” & “Refurbished” items used to get listed under the same ASIN (Still there are some old listings) // Same as Amazon.com model //
Here there’s a mix-up because the seller is Cloudtail India (Sells only New* at least majority of them) and not Cloudtail. (only renewed/used*)
They are both the same sellers but they function as a different units just like Appario Retail (New) and Appario. (Renewed)
Cloudtail India : https://www.amazon.in/sp?_encoding=UTF8&asin=&i...=
Cloudtail. : https://www.amazon.in/sp?_encoding=UTF8&asin=&i...=
But now its not the case, the reviews & listings are distinct to avoid confusion (Reviews section is Global but they are not worth paying attention as there are many third party sellers listing the same product procured via multiple sources. I don’t even bother checking if the seller is Appario.)

Regarding the availability, you will only find the items sold by Cloudtail India via Cloudtail. seller (Returned*) and the returned ones purchased from Appario Retail via Appario. // The ones intended for Indian Market.. Manufactured here or Officially Imported //

i have ordered mi band 5 renewed and got mi band 4 in the mi band 5 box with charger of mi band 4 as well. people make amazon suffer as I am sure appario don’t even check what is inside the return box. it’s the person who picked the return to check and verify the return item. but as mi band 4 and mi band 5 are identical in design, it is hard to guess. if the charger was not of mi band 4 even I was not able to differentiate.

Hey,
I just received these earbuds today morning.

I was skeptical so made an Unboxing video but it was unnecessary since earbuds & accessories are as good as new. Everything works as expected and battery is also holding charge level.
I would suggest you guys to consider buying it from Appario seller.
Note that it’s usually IN STOCK after 2-4 days at midnight, from 12 am till 1 or 2 am. The listing wasn’t showing properly in my app while ordering. Weirdly, the price listing of rs.1410 kept disappearing amd reappearing while clicking on buying options. Do check the price listing multiple times, if it shows “starting from rs.1410” then it’s definitely in stock, just try to add it in cart somehow.

Do read my review on Amazon, it would be the most recent by my name “Arpit”.
