In terms of audio, the Buds Z2 features an 11mm moving coil unit. Moreover, OnePlus is offering Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) up to 40dB, which was absent on the original Buds Z—but is present on the more expensive Buds Pro.
On the other hand, there’s a transparency mode that lets you talk to someone without having to take the earbuds off. For calls, it has 3 mics coupled with AI for better noise cancellation. The Buds Z2 also has a dedicated game mode that promises 94ms of low latency.

Aside from this, each earbud has a 40mAh battery that promises up to 7 hours of music playback. It can be extended up to 38 hours with the 520mAh battery of the charging case. OnePlus also claims that just 10 minutes of charge can provide 5 hours of playback time.
