OnePlus Buds Review

published on August 3, 2020

Oneplus is looking to make a splash on the budget wireless earbuds market much like they did with the oneplus nord for the mid-range smartphone market but are the oneplus buzz worth it hi i'm ron with phone arena and i spent a few days using both the oneplus buzz and

Apple's second-gen airpods in order to find out while keeping in mind that the ladder costs about 80 dollars more first of all it's not a stretch to say that the case of the buzz is

Suspiciously similar to the airpods case although it is larger and more rounded the design elements between it and the airpods case are one-to-one especially if you look at their

Backsides the circular sync button the metallic hinge it's all very similar we've seen our share of airpod clones in the past so it's hardly a new thing but it's not worthy that oneplus is also going for the airpods design without

Even trying to hide it one area where the oneplus buds case is notably different is its matte finish in my opinion it feels a bit grippier and more premium than the shiny plastic on the airpods case

The actual earbuds themselves are made of shiny plastic again very similar to the design of the airpods but with thicker and slightly shorter stems which also have larger tips that feature a unique design element

Touch sensitive disks oneplus says those disks are cd inspired in design and they definitely look nice arguably the oneplus but's defining feature by default the disks can be used for skipping tracks and answering phone

Calls by tapping one of them twice or pressing and holding respectively the earbuds fit snugly into their case with a satisfying magnetic snap and don't feel any less premium than apple's airpods in that regard

The earbuds are also ipx4 splash resistant although the case isn't the oneplus bus require a oneplus phone for software updates and configuration touch gestures they are however capable of connecting

And being used with both android smartphones and iphones the initial pairing process is quick and effortless and i even found the oneplus buzz a bit quicker to pair to my iphone than the

Airpods it's also a strong reliable bluetooth connection as i was able to walk far from my phone without it breaking however often if the earbuds have been sitting outside of their case and i come

Back to use them they won't both start playing only the right earbud would play music the first few seconds it's an annoyance and something to have in mind this doesn't happen if the

Earbuds have been sitting in their case thankfully so it seems best to always keep them inside when not using them i've seen people complain about the lack of rubber tips on these earbuds which

Can make for a looser feel poor noise cancelling and generally worse sound if they don't fit well in your ear in my case however the earbuds fit perfectly and no amount of head shaking

Would make them budge even remotely thus i didn't experience any sound quality or noise cancelling issues over time however the earbuds sludger size did start getting noticeable irritating my ears a little

The airpods are definitely slightly more comfy to wear for long periods of time because their tips are smaller in any case those are all minor gripes it may differ from person to person but in my experience the oneplus buzz fit

Well and securely into my ears as for how they sound switching between the oneplus buzz and the airpods left me impressed with how identical the sound quality is between the two there is no audio downgrade here despite

The buzz slower price the sound from the oneplus buzz is rich clear and full while the surrounding world is properly silenced thanks to the buds snuck fit and their active noise cancelling again

Though it's important to note that others who have tried the bus didn't have the exact same experience if the bus happened not to fit perfectly in your ears the sound quality and noise cancelling can be worse and

Since they don't have any rubber tips to choose from you won't be able to do anything about it the base on both the buds and the airpods is about equal not the strongest but well present it is

Very slightly cleaner and punchier on the airpods all in all the oneplus buzz offer impressive sound for their price they should satisfy anyone's music and podcast listening needs

So long as users have reasonable expectations for this form factor they can also get very loud making them usable even in crowded environments and plane rides as previously mentioned both earbuds

Feature little touch sensitive disks if you don't have a oneplus phone you'll be stuck with their two default functions double tap to skip a song or hold to answer a phone call

If you do have a oneplus phone you can change what those gestures do they can pause the music or activate a voice assistant instead for example and last but not least to pause your music you simply take out one of the

Earbuds it would have been nice if oneplus had a dedicated app for the buzz through which anyone could configure the gestures but that's minor gripe and may be addressed in the future

And now to battery life you should be able to enjoy at least two full days of music if not many more depending on how often you actually use the buds on their own the earbuds can last up to

Seven hours on a charge but each time you place them back in their case they will recharge from it which adds up to about 30 hours of battery life so should you buy the oneplus bugs well

Do you need fully wireless earbuds that are well priced and sound good if so the oneplus buzz can be a solid choice over apple's airpods and there are many other alternatives

Especially if you're already rocking a oneplus smartphone you'll do right to choose the oneplus buzz but you can also use them just fine with an iphone or any other android phone it's impressive what oneplus has managed

To deliver for this price point and a sign that the time has come for fully wireless earbuds to start getting more affordable and accessible to everyone so those were the oneplus buzz if you
