Alongside OnePlus Nord, the company launched today its another highly anticipated product, OnePlus Buds – their first TWS (True Wireless Stereo) earphones. Lately, most of the major OEMs (like Xiaomi, Realme, Oppo, and Vivo) have been in a spree to launch truly-wireless earphones in India. Now, OnePlus has jumped into the bandwagon.
Though we knew how the Buds would look like, thanks to multiple leaks way ahead of the launch, we got to know today about its price and features. Let’s dive in to find out what OnePlus Buds has to offer.
At first glance, OnePlus Buds closely resembles the recently launched Vivo TWS Neo wireless earphones. However, it’s nice to see the Chinese firm opting for a different design language rather than blatantly copying Apple’s Airpod. The earbuds come with a stem design just like most of the TWS earphones available in the market. The Buds will be available in three colors: White, Gray, and Nord Blue.
OnePlus claims the Buds will provide up to 7 hours of music playback on a single charge and a total of 30 hours with the help of charging case. The case comes with a USB Type-C port and supports fast-charging, 10 minutes of charge for 10 hours of playback. OnePlus states that the charging box has a rated capacity of 420 mAh and both the case and buds will fully charge in approximately 80 minutes.
The Buds are equipped with three microphones which aid in environment noise cancellation. The earbuds come with big 13.4mm dynamic drivers for clearer vocals and deep bass. Additionally, OnePlus Buds are IPX4 certified for water resistance and comes with Dolby Atmos support (on select OnePlus phones). OnePlus Buds allow customizable double tap and long press functions at the back to provide users with more control.
OnePlus Buds is priced at Rs 4,990 and will go on sale on Amazon, Flipkart, and OnePlus.in starting August 4.
