The new OnePlus Buds are feature packed true wireless earphones for only $79. Although they look like Apple’s AirPods, they cost half the price and have longer battery life. On paper it seems they could be the answer Android smartphone users have been looking for.
Long Battery Life
The OnePlus Buds incorporates OnePlus’s leading Warp Charging technology, which allows users to charge the device for 10 minutes to get 2 hours of music listening with the earphones only. Packed with a big battery, a 430mAh battery in the case and each earphone incorporating a 35mAh battery, it gives the OnePlus Buds an industry-leading 30 hours of audio playback time with the case (with multiple recharges). Each fully charged earphone provides 7 hours of battery life for music or 4 hours of talk time. It takes about 80 minutes to recharge both Buds inside the charging case.
With three active microphones built into each bud to reduce ambient noise, the OnePlus Buds claim to offer clear and crisp voice recordings and calls. In addition to enhanced 13.4mm dynamic drivers, the OnePlus Buds also come with Bass Boost and Dolby Atmos support, which produce cleaner vocals, deeper bass and richer tones for a breathtaking stereo soundstage.
The OnePlus Buds feature a sleek and ergonomic half in-ear design for all-day comfort over extended periods of wearing. The OnePlus Buds also comes with an IPX4 water resistance rating to handle splashes of water from any direction, making it a powerful companion to have during workouts or a regular jog. Complementing design are customizable features such as auto-on/off sensors (auto-pause), Fast Pair capabilities compatible with Android 6 smartphones and above, and customizable double tap and long press features on OnePlus smartphones that give users more controls at their fingertips.
