OnePlus today announced its third set of true wireless headphones, the OnePlus Buds Pro. Dubbed the company’s “most advanced listening device” to date, the new headphones debut alongside the Nord 2 smartphone. They will go on sale in the US and Canada on September 1 for 149, $ 99 and are available in white or matte black.
The shape of the earbuds is more Pro-esque AirPods, although OnePlus has gone for a shiny chrome rod that looks quite eye-catching. After last year’s predicament on the US border, the company has good reason to go for a more distinct design.
The OnePlus Buds Pro feature what the company describes as “intelligent adaptive noise cancellation,” which means they’ll automatically adjust the amount of NC applied based on your surroundings. Each earbud has a three mic setup that actively filters noise levels up to 40dB as needed to provide a much more comfortable and personalized listening experience, as opposed to conventional ANC systems with fixed noise cancellation, ”the company said. written in his press release. The headphones also support Dolby Atmos audio.
OnePlus refers to endurance as another force, with the OnePlus Buds Pro able to stretch for up to a total of 38 hours of listening when you include case recharges. On a single charge, you’ll get five hours with ANC on and seven hours without. These are two more average numbers that are in line with the competition.
The company’s wired Warp Charge is supported; a 10 minute charge is supposed to be good for 10 hours of listening, and you can charge them on any Qi wireless charger as well. The headphones feature Bluetooth 5.2 and carry over the low-latency gaming mode of the company’s previous headphones.
