This year, we witnessed OnePlus’s transition from a flagship killer to a flagship itself. However, with the launch of OnePlus Nord, maybe the company is finally returning back to its roots. But, it wasn’t the only product that was launched in today’s AR event. The company also launched its first wireless earbuds. Read along to check out the specifications price and the availability of OnePlus Buds in Nepal.
OnePlus Buds Overview
These buds were initially expected to release alongside the OnePlus 8 series. However, back then we got the Bullet Wireless Z instead. But hey, it’s finally here. And its design very much resembles Apple’s AirPods. However, there’s a slight difference here. These buds have a flat back that is touch-capacitive whereas the AirPods have a rounded back.
There are sensors inside the buds that automatically detect if the buds are in your ears or not. That means once you pull it out of your ear, your music will pause automatically. The buds come with a sleek case that is similar to that of the Google Pixel Buds case. And there as status light on the outside that helps to know whether the buds are fully charged or not.
Sadly, the OnePlus Buds do not come with active noise cancellation. However, it does have environmental noise cancellation. Basically, while on a call, this helps to reduce the background noise that the other person hears.
Similarly, the device currently does not support Google Assistant services on devices other than an OnePlus phone. Also, it does not have features such as aptX HD and LDAC codecs. It supports only SBC and AAC. Now, it does deliver a decent sound, however, it will not sound as good as say the Sony WF-1000XM3.
One of the best things about these buds is its batteries. It comes with Wrap Charging. The first earbuds to have these features. It helps the device to achieve 10 hours of battery life in just 10 minutes. In total, the device lasts for 30 hours. That’s 7 hours in the Buds and 23 in the case.
Another redeeming feature of this device is its find my bud feature and the IPX4 rating. The IP rating makes these buds the perfect gym companion.
