OnePlus Buds Design & Build Quality
At the first look of oneplus buds true wireless earbuds, one can mistakenly say these are Apple AirPods. OnePlus incorporate the same sea-shell inspired CD-like pads on the buds. This ensures the easily recognizable OnePlus design.
The ear-tips are also enlarged as compared to Airpods. Further, the oneplus wireless buds comes inside the power cum charging case. This is quite compact & lightweight, making it portable & easy to carry. Two dedicated slots are there for the earbuds.
The design of OnePlus buds & matte finish case gives the premium look & feel, which makes people tempting to buy. The LED in from of the case acts as a charging indicator & turns white when on pairing mode.
Oneplus earbuds come with an IPX4 rating, means it is protected against water & sweat splashes. This feature makes the earbuds eligible for workout usage, keeping the fear of sweat away & you can focus more on your exercise.
One drawback I noticed is that sometimes the buds fall out while walking. However, the comfortability factor outweighs other ones.
Talking about the touch controls, I like the awesome feature that earbuds have sensors which detect when you put them off ears & pause the music. When you again tuck in the ears, the music is resumed automatically. This is really cool. However, non-OnePlus users will not be able to avail the touch control facility & controlling the music.
The touch panels are pretty sensitive & there is no single tap option, only double or triple. The connectivity is excellent & pairing is possible at an instant with the fast pairing.
Sound Quality | OnePlus Wireless Buds
OnePlus claims “un-BEAT-able” audio, which lets you enjoy richer tones, clear vocals & deeper bass. We experience 3D stereo with stunning sound quality & Dirac Audio Tuner support. However, unlike OnePlus Bullers wireless 2, it does not come with aptX codec, which might have a slight effect on the audio quality.
Oneplus buds true wireless comes with 13.4mm dynamic drivers which not only offer the balanced audio but thumping bass as well. The vocals are crystal clear both at music & during phone calls. The person at other end was able to listen to the voice clearly.
Though OnePlus buds have no active noise cancellation, they come with environmental noise cancellation, which is capable to suppress the stray signals around you, keeping the music clean. It has 3 microphones, to improve clarity.
The low latency pairing allows you to connect oneplus wireless earbuds while you are playing games. Overall, you’ll surely the sound quality it offers under 5000 range.
OnePlus Buds Battery & Charging
OnePlus did the awesome work when it comes to battery. The 420 mAh charging case acts like a power bank, which supplies 30 hours of seamless sound & listening time. However, it lasts for 4 hours if used for phone calls.
Not only about long battery backup, but the fast charging is something we should always look for. If we charge OnePlus buds for just 10 minutes, it gets ready for 10 hours, as claimed by OnePlus.
One full charge of it gives 7 hours of non-stop music. Oneplus earbuds’ power case can be charged by a type-C charger. The earbuds are packed with 35 mAh battery each. It takes about 80 minutes for a full charge.
Pros & Cons | OnePlus Buds Review
OnePlus buds are the first-ever true wireless earbuds by OnePlus. Most of the features are modern & peculiar. Like, sound quality is best as expected, touch controls are awesome. But, the most focussed part is the huge battery life we get along with fast charging. The stylish & attractive design will always make you stand out.
Though It is supported by almost all smartphones, I recommend you to buy only if you already have a OnePlus device. This is because advanced features related to sound is only supported by OnePlus device, as described in the OnePlus Buds Review. Probably they are trying to create a monopoly by promoting their own devices. Check OnePlus Buds TWS price in India:
