OnePlus is joining the crowded true wireless earbuds market with its new OnePlus Buds that look very similar to Apple’s AirPods but include some of the company’s own unique features, including Warp Charging.
With Warp Charging, the Buds can play for up to 10 hours per charge with just a quick 10-minute battery boost. The included charging case has a 430mAh built-in battery and each earphone has a 35mAh battery, providing a combined 30 hours of audio playback (seven with the Buds alone.)
They include three active microphones built into each bud to reduce ambient noise, allowing for clear and crisp voice recordings and calls. In addition to enhanced 13.4mm dynamic drivers, they also come with Bass Boost and Dolby Atmos support to produce cleaner vocals, deeper bass, and richer tones for a stereo soundstage.
The ergonomic half in-ear design provides all-day comfort, says OnePlus, plus the Buds are IPX4-rated for water resistance so they can handle splashes of water from any direction.
Customizable features include auto-on/off sensors, Fast Pair capabilities compatible with Android 6 smartphones and above, and customizable double tap and long press features on OnePlus smartphones that provide more control.
The OnePlus Buds will be available in Canada in white starting July 27, 2020 for $109 and in gray in early August.
