OnePlus is introducing its newest pair if true wireless earbuds, the Nord Buds 2, which come with a 12.4mm extra-large driver, titanized vibrating diaphragm, ANC, Clear Cal technology, fast pairing, fast charging, and more.
Made of sustainable materials, the OnePlus Nord Buds 2 feature PureBeats by BassWave enhancement, which the company says compensates for weak bass pitches and to help improve quality while listening to music, playing games, or making calls. They also feature adaptive noise cancellation, along with transparency mode to hear outside sounds when desired.
Designed to be dust- and water-resistant with an IP55 rating the Nord Buds 2 boast custom touch controls you can tailor to your needs with quick taps and long presses. Clear Call technology, which uses an AI algorithm, is combined with a dual mic system that helps amplify your voice while also blurring outside noises.
The buds used AAC for digital audio encoding and decoding and can connect to the Dirac Audio Tuner on a OnePlus smartphone for a more immersive listening experience. There are several equalizer modes from which to choose, including balanced, serenade, bold, vocal, and bass modes. Also with a OnePlus one, thanks to Oxygen OS, you can pair easily with the mobile device via a pop-up notification.
Charging through the included case, the OnePlus Nord Buds 2 support fast charging: you only need to charge for 10 minutes to get five hours of use with ANC off. Thanks to multiple charges in the case, you can get up to a total of 27 hours of playback time with AAC and ANC on.
As a fun twist, the buds come with stickers for adding a customized message for a friend who you might be gifting the item to, or even for yourself. It’s a nice, feel-good surprise in the box, says OnePlus. There are also customizable themed pop-up skins, including an animation that appears on the case when it’s opened.
The OnePlus Nord Buds 2 will be available in Canada starting April 4 in Lightning White and Thunder Grey for $85 per pair.
