In reality, products like headphones, phone charging cables, and speakers sold by roadside vendors are mostly unbranded with unclear origins, and the information on the packaging is often only in Chinese. In the Chinese market, similar accessories have prices ranging from about 10,000 to 17,000 VND, with unknown quality.

Many customers have found that these accessories “break without using” or only last a few uses with poor charging efficiency. These low-quality accessories take a long time to charge the battery or may not charge it at all.
