As part of the presentation of the budget smartphone Nord 2, OnePlus also introduced new wireless headphones. The flagship OnePlus Buds Pro will compete with Apple’s most popular AirPods Pro on the market, they even completely copy their design. However, what is noteworthy is that for the price, the model is more of the middle class and will join such TWS counterparts as Beats Studio Buds, Google Pixel Buds and Galaxy Buds Pro.
Like the AirPods Pro, the OnePlus Buds Pro support Adaptive Noise Cancellation. Three built-in microphones are used to filter surround sound up to 40 dB. According to OnePlus, the technology compares favorably with standard active noise canceling in other wireless earbuds, which offers a predetermined level of filtering. The case houses 11mm dynamic drivers with Dolby Atmos support.
Externally, OnePlus Buds Pro, again, strongly resemble AirPods Pro: the novelty has exactly the same shape of the case with a short leg. There are only two main differences – the leg is made of metal and half painted in the original color; the headphones will also be available in two color options (black and white) instead of one. Autonomy is declared at the level of 10 hours without noise cancellation and up to 38 hours with recharging from the case. Fast charging using the proprietary Warp Charge technology will restore the battery in 10 minutes.
The OnePlus Buds Pro will go on sale in the US and Canada on September 1. The official price is $ 150. The launch in other countries has not yet been reported.
