The company’s first true wireless earphones have been launched alongside the OnePlus Nord smartphone. The OnePlus Buds go on open sale on August 4 across various online shopping sites and one plus’s website. Today we will talk about OnePlus Buds and compare it with some of its competition.
OnePlus Buds Design
It has a design and fit like the Apple AirPods or like OnePlus calls it a “half in-ear” design, it fits properly for most of the people and is very comfortable too. Each bud has three mics — at the top, middle, and bottom — and runs some noise-reduction algorithms to help people hear you more clearly. When comparing to Oppo Enco Buds, they have a similar looking design and are much sleeker than those offered by Mi and other competitors . The Realme Buds Q and Redmi Earbuds follow a different overall design.
It comes with a charging case and OnePlus states that the case can provide up to 10 hours of battery life with just 10 minutes of charging and has a USB Type-C charger, while the Realme Buds Q offer 20 hours of battery but take 90 minutes to charge and Oppo claims that the W31 Enco earbuds can offer 3.5 hours on a single charge along with 15 hours more with the help of the charging case. The fast charging available on OnePlus Buds is one of it’s plus point and it’s a feature which will be very useful for every customer.
OnePlus Buds Sound Quality
OnePlus Buds support Bluetooth 5.0 and offer a range up to 10 meters and other buds by brands like RealMe, Mi and Oppo also support Bluetooth 5.0 and range of 10 meters. OnePlus buds offer a great experience and noise cancelation (though passive in nature is still very effective), and it is surprising to get this level of audio quality at this price. This doesn’t mean the quality from competition is bad, but we feel that overall OnePlus has a upper hand
OnePlus Buds have been launched in India and are priced at Rs. 4,990. They come in 3 colours – Grey, White, and Nord Blue. Realme Q is priced at Rs. 1,999 and Oppo Enco buds at Rs 3,999, but they do lack in audio quality when compared to the OnePlus Buds. The other products from Realme and Mi are also priced under Rs. 5,000! OnePlus Buds do pack some frills despite the low price: they’re rated IPX4 water-resistance, so they can withstand sweat and some splashes of water. OnePlus Buds are probably the one which has most to offer though there are some areas like wireless charging where OnePlus falls behind.
