OnePlus Buds Overview

Design

OnePlus Buds has gone for the AirPods Pro like design with a short stem but it’s not a full in-ear bud. OnePlus is calling it a half in-ear design.

It doesn’t have adjustable silicone tips so, the fit will not be the same for everyone. But it does come with IPX4 rating.

Each earbud weighs around 4.7 gm whereas the charging box weighs 37 gm. The buds are light and the charging case is also quite compact. The case has a USB Type C for charging. It is available in three colors: White, Gray, and Nord Blue.

Audio Quality

OnePlus Buds has a 13.4mm dynamic driver which will provide a wide soundstage. It supports Dolby Surround Sound and Dirac Audio Tuner for richer tones, clearer vocals, and deep bass.

They have gong with a non-Qualcomm chip inside so it doesn’t support higher quality codecs like apt-X HD but it does support SBC and AAC codecs.

Furthermore, OnePlus claims that they are using a noise cancellation algorithm and three microphones to improve call quality.

Connectivity and Touch Controls

Like most of the TWS, OnePlus Buds use touch controls for music control. Double-tap to skip to next song and long press to switch between synced devices. This amounts to limited flexibility but OnePlus says it will add customization when the buds eventually roll out.

As for connectivity it uses Bluetooth V5 and has a fast pair feature that only works with OnePlus device. This works just like how the Apple Airpods work with iPhones.

Battery life is definitely impressive but more impressive is it’s fast charging that allows 10 hours of playback with 10 mins of charging.

OnePlus Buds Price in Nepal and Availability

OnePlus Buds is priced at Rs. 4,990 in India. So, it could be priced around Rs. 10,000 if it launches in Nepal.

OnePlus Buds Rs. 10000 The date hasn't been fixed.

It looks very similar to the Apple Airpods but I prefer in-ear design rather than this half in-ear design. On to the battery and charging, it’s really good for what it costs.

Of course, it doesn’t get premium features like Wireless charging. But, it also doesn’t support apt-X HD codec. So I’m slightly surprised that OnePlus didn’t go with Qualcomm chipset.

Another thing that bugged me is the limited touch controls and the fact that fast pairing works only with OnePlus devices.

Everything else looks cool including that Nord blue color. But, let’s see if it makes it into Nepal.
