Hi I’m Sasha Sagan from PC Mag comm with A really cool thing for you today the Oneplus buds The oneplus buds are one bus’s new Low-cost true wireless earbuds now this Is the model in the Nord blue color this Is the blue from the new oneplus Nords Phone and look at them they’re just Gorgeous they also come in this blue and Green case these are $79 and for this Kind of design and this kind of look They’re really lovely but performance is Also really nice let me get the other Color and we’ll talk a little about the Performance so here we have the oneplus Buds in the more standard white now the White buds are going to be the model Available in the US the blue buds are Only available in Europe and India but They’re so cool I think it might be Worth trying to find now here’s the White buds as you can see they come in This charging case now I’ve tested about Eight hours of battery life with the Buds on their own and the charging case Has two more charges so that’s a total Of about 24 hours of battery life the Charging case charges via USB C and it Charges pretty quickly so there’s not That much to worry about in terms of Charging now let’s take a closer look at One of the buds themselves now as you Can tell this looks a lot like an air Pod pro they don’t have removable
Exchangeable ear tips it’s one size fits All but like with the air pods Pro when You put it in your ear it is relatively Secure and comfortable now it might not Be if you have very oddly sized or oddly Shaped ears and for those you’re gonna Need to get buds that have there is this Little boom here which improves sound Quality now something that you need to Understand about the buds here I’m gonna Put the other one in now Now something you need to understand About the buds is that sound quality is Pretty good in the mic but there is very Little noise cancellation so for Instance when you heard that car go by Over there that car noise would come Through on the buds music quality audio Quality on me is generally excellent I Tried them with various kinds of music I Tried them with a voice they sound Really good now let me show you Something on a phone about the oneplus Buds quality and the number one thing That I think is a problem with these Earbuds now here’s the Android control Panel for the oneplus buds as you can Tell Using a oneplus phone you can find out Individual battery levels for each of The buds and the case you can turn on a AC a high music quality now notice it’s A AC and not apdex I don’t see AB decks Lossless on this I see a AC and you can
See a couple of other options now what You don’t see and the biggest problem With the oneplus Budds is on device Controls now going back to these buds if You tap the bud right now it goes to the Next music track now if you have a Oneplus phone you’ll be able to change That double tap to be activating Google Assistant or play pause or something Like that That software isn’t on my phone yet so I Couldn’t show you but there’s only one Control you for instance don’t have on Device controls for volume and you can’t Have multiple options with multiple taps But the thing is it’s only one control You can’t have on device volume controls And you can’t have multiple options with Multiple kinds of taps there is a long Press which lets you hang up on a call Or lets you change between two phones or Phone in the PC that are both attached To the buds but you can’t customize that And you can only customize the double Tap if you have a oneplus phone now I Would personally customize it to the Google assistant because you can access A lot of these other features from Google Play/pause that sort of stuff you can do That all from Google assistance he Doesn’t this a cool blue earbud you Don’t see a lot of those in other brands All the same though these earbuds cost
$79.99 that’s a lot less than other High-quality true wireless earbuds with This kind of range I was definitely seeing over 30 feet of Range with clear music quality which is Really nice good range good battery life Good sound quality that is a really cool Thing even if the on device controls Aren’t as flexible as I would like so Those are the 1 plus buds they’re really Neat they come in blue and white they Will be available for $79.99 this has Been one cool thing from PC Mag comm With Sascha Segan take a look at PC Mag Comm for my full review of the oneplus Buds
