A few months after the first Nord Buds release, OnePlus has expanded the lineup with a CE version. It is a pair of entry-level wireless earbuds with a combined battery life of up to 20 hours. So, let’s look into the OnePlus Nord Buds CE, its specs, features, expected price, and availability in Nepal.
OnePlus Nord Buds CE Overview:
Being an entry-level product, OnePlus Nord Buds CE misses out on silicone ear tips, settling for an open-fit design instead. The actual earbuds have a shape that resembles the older-gen Apple AirPods. They weigh 3.5 grams each and are IPX4 rating. It comes in two colors: Moonlight White and Misty Grey.
OnePlus Nord Buds CE arrives in a color-matching charging case that weighs around 33 grams. A green LED is on the front — on top of the OnePlus branding. Towards the bottom, you can find a Type-C port for charging.
Audio and Connectivity
On the inside, Nord Buds CE packs a massive 13.4mm titanium-coated dynamic driver, which OnePlus says is tuned for bass of up to 3dB. You can switch between four EQs from the HeyMelody app on your phone. For this, Nord Buds CE comes with Bluetooth 5.2. It even supports Fast Pair with OnePlus smartphones.

As expected, there is no Active Noise Cancellation, but OnePlus does claim clear voice calls, courtesy of its AI-based noise cancellation. There is even a dedicated low-latency mode to limit latency while gaming.
Activating this mode requires tapping on the touch control three times in quick succession. In addition, the earbuds support single tap and double tap for play/pause and next track, respectively.
Battery and Charging
Finally, OnePlus Nord Buds CE comes with a 27mAh battery that can last up to 4.5 hours. The 300mAh battery of the charging case takes this number to 20 hours. Because of the flash charge support, you can get up to 81 minutes of combined playback with just 10 minutes of charging.
