OnePlus has added another feather to its cap by clinching a collaboration with multi-awarded film music composer Hans Zimmer to tune the Master Equalizer, known as EQ of its upcoming OnePlus Buds Pro 2 in a quest to give users the ultimate in listening pleasure.

Hans Zimmer – composer of unforgettable soundtracks for blockbuster movies such as Dune, Top Gun: Maverick, and The Dark Knight trilogy – is known for pushing the boundaries of sound so that music helps move the film forward in extraordinary, sometimes unconventional, ways.

“Music is basically having a conversation. It is about setting moods and conveying emotions. To experience its full impact and to hear the nuance of every note, you need a listening device that delivers studio-quality audio,” said Zimmer. “I am pleased to work with OnePlus to ensure its second-generation earbuds allows you to be fully immerse into the music and to be transported into a whole new world.”

A Master EQ – Soundscape

EQs are tools that give users the ability to adjust the sound signature of earphones or speakers and allow you to tune audio to your taste by changing settings like enhancing bass or tweaking treble. Hans Zimmer’s Master EQ for OnePlus Buds Pro 2, called “Soundscape”, has fewer low frequencies than normal as well as a brighter and wider sound field that allows users to enjoy the full orchestral sound of a classical symphony and the multidimensional sound of an action film. They will hear the complex and delicate nuances of film scores in their full glory and be able to feel even more of the emotional impact of the music.

A Musical Gift

Under the collaboration with OnePlus, Hans Zimmer has also rearranged “Lost but Won”, part of the original soundtrack for the hit movie Rush, to integrate spatial audio characteristics into the track.

By deploying a range of sound playback technologies, spatial audio enables listeners to distinguish sound all around them without the need for any specific multiple-speaker setup.

“Spatial audio changes the way we create music and listen to music,” said Zimmer. “I love the spatial audio experience of the OnePlus Buds Pro 2, The extremely immersive sound feels like you’re in a front-row seat at a live concert.”

The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 is one of the first TWS earbuds to adopt Google’s signature spatial audio function developed on Android 13. By integrating Google’s spatial audio framework, rendering algorithms and OnePlus’ advanced stereo up-mixing algorithm, the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 offers a customized spatial audio experience through a wide sound field and clear vocals that heighten the cinematic atmosphere while watching videos. When playing music, users get a clear and natural sound – as well as an immersive listening experience of a live concert particularly when the earbuds are paired with the OnePlus 11 5G smartphone.

“OnePlus brings audiophile-grade sound to wireless earbuds with its latest OnePlus Buds Pro 2. The sound resolution – with its dual-driver system – is simply incredible. The bass is booming and vocals are quite pristine,” Zimmer said.

Zimmer’s rearranged “Lost But Won” soundtrack will enable customers to test their OnePlus Buds Pro 2’s spatial audio feature and to ensure it is set at an optimal level. The re-arranged soundtrack is hoped to set the industry benchmark on how spatial audio should sound.

With the Master EQ and spatial audio-oriented soundtrack, Hans Zimmer gives a valuable gift to customers of the OnePlus Buds Pro 2.
