OnePlus held a big event in China earlier today where we saw the announcement of the OnePlus 11 but that wasn’t the only new hardware at the event. We also got the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 wireless earbuds which bring improved noise canceling, Dolby Atmos spatial audio and sound tuning by Dynaudio.
Buds Pro 2 are the successor of last year’s Buds Pro and offer the same basic design with a two-tone finish on the buds and a matte charging case. The buds reuse the same 11mm dynamic drivers and 6mm planar diaphragm drivers. The earphones support Bluetooth 5.3 and their ANC should drown out up to 48db of outside noise. There are three microphones on each earbud for optimal voice pickup and noise canceling.
Buds Pro 2 support the AAC, SBC and LC3 codecs at launch while the support for the LHDC 5.0 audio codec for high-res audio streaming over Bluetooth is coming with a future software update. There’s a 54ms low latency mode for gaming and some neat features for ColorOS 11 devices like posture and cervical spine pressure monitoring. New Oppo and OnePlus devices will also support dual connection and easy switching between devices.
OnePlus claims the Buds Pro 2 can last up to 39 hours with their charging case with ANC off. The case can charge wirelessly via any Qi charger or wired via USB-C.
The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 come in black and green colors and retail for CNY 899 ($130) in China. Open sales there start on January 9 while international pricing and availability details will be revealed on February 7.
