OnePlus Launches Buds Z2 True Wireless Earbuds

The OnePlus Buds Z2 truly wireless earbuds include 40dB active noise cancellation technology, 11mm dynamic drivers, and a trio of microphones on each earbud.

The Buds Z2 come with up to 38 hours of battery life and support for Flash Charge that delivers five hours of listening time in 10 minutes.

“The OnePlus Buds Z2 are an important milestone for OnePlus’s range of portable audio products,” says Pete Lau, Founder of OnePlus. “The Buds Z2 deliver exceptional active noise cancellation technology, a quality audio experience, and outstanding battery life at a price point that’s more practical than ever before.”

In conjunction with the launch of the Buds Z2, OnePlus’ benefits program the Red Cable Club (RCC), initially only open in India, is making its North American debut. RCC gives OnePlus enthusiasts exclusive access to perks, discounts, and promotions.

The Buds Z2 also boast the same 11mm dynamic drivers as flagship hearable OnePlus Buds Pro, providing rich bass, sharp treble, and Dolby Atmos support. The new truly wireless earbuds support Bluetooth 5.2, deliver latency as low as 94ms with Pro Gaming mode enabled, and come with three sound modes: Cinematic Movie, Immersive Music, and Mobile Gaming. Finally, Transparency Mode is available on the OnePlus Buds Z2 for when users want to listen to music or podcasts while staying in tune with the world around them.

Available in Pearl White and Obsidian Black colours, the Buds Z2 sport a refined CD pattern design, a lighter build, and a stem that’s 15% shorter than that of the original OnePlus Buds Z. The earbuds themselves have IP55-rated internals and a hydrophobic nano-coating that provide resistance against water and sweat. The OnePlus Buds Z2 case also comes with an IPX4 rating that protects it against splashes of water. Each OnePlus Buds Z2 earbud exhibits three MEMS microphones – feedback, feedforward, and beamforming microphones – that work in tandem to ensure your voice is heard loud and clear, even in busy environments.

The OnePlus Buds Z2 deliver up to 38 hours of listening time on a single charge with the included charging case. The truly wireless earbuds also support Flash Charge that provides five hours of listening time in 10 minutes. When you’re charged and ready to go, connecting the Buds Z2 to your OnePlus phone is quick and simple thanks to Google Fast Pair. The Buds Z2 also support Find My Buds that allow you to quickly recover the earbuds if they’re misplaced.

Users without a OnePlus phone can download the HeyMelody app to access an array of customization features and settings, such as the ability to select what a triple tap on the Buds Z2 does. The HeyMelody app can also be used to toggle between the Buds Z2’s two noise-cancelling adjustable modes, to conduct a fitting test to ensure the Buds Z2 are being worn correctly, and to use the Buds Z2’s Find My Buds feature. All the features listed above are available and accessible without the HeyMelody app when the OnePlus Buds Z2 are paired with a OnePlus smartphone.

The pearl white OnePlus Buds Z2 are available in Canada for $149, with the obsidian black color set for availability in early 2022.
