The OnePlus Buds Pro were also announced in the event alongside the OnePlus Nord 2. The OnePlus Buds Pro are designed as premium TWS earbuds from the house of OnePlus.
The earbuds come with 11mm dynamic drivers and deliver a latency rate of as low as 94 milliseconds (when using Pro Gaming mode). OnePlus has provided hybrid active noise cancellation (ANC) along with three distinct modes, namely Extreme, Faint, and Smart. The Extreme mode is designed to offer noise cancellation up to 40dB, while the Faint mode is meant to cancel noise of 25dB. In contrast, the Smart mode is available to automatically respond to the ambient environment to adjust and compensate for surrounding noises. There is a three-microphone setup along with a custom noise reduction algorithm to filter unwanted noise.
OnePlus has also provided Dolby Atmos support on the Buds Pro, but that would be limited to some of the latest OnePlus flagships. Further, the earbuds come with a Zen Mode Air that offers a list of white noises to reduce stress and give users a sense of calm. OnePlus has also provided a proprietary feature called OnePlus Audio ID to customise music playback based on users’ sensitivity to different sounds.
The OnePlus Buds Pro earbuds have IP55 certification for both dust and water resistance. The charging case has USB Type-C and wireless charging (Qi standard).
In terms of connectivity, there is Bluetooth v5.2. The earbuds also offer a seamless, fast connectivity experience with OnePlus phones. Users on other phones can, however, access some of the proprietary features using the HeyMelody app.
The OnePlus Buds Pro are claimed to deliver up to 38 hours of battery life. The company is claimed to offer 10 hours of playback with 10 minutes of Warp wired charging.
Apart from the Nord 2, the OnePlus Buds Pro will be available with a price tag of EUR 149 (roughly Rs. 13,100). The earbuds will be available in Glossy White and Matte Black colors and will go on sale in Europe starting August 25. India pricing and availability of the OnePlus Buds Pro are yet to be revealed.
