OnePlus has officially unveiled the OnePlus Buds Pro 2, the second-generation of its flagship earbuds which, thanks to spatial audio support and dual drivers, is set to elevate users’ listening experience to a whole new level.
“No expense was spared in the creation of the OnePlus Buds Pro 2. We put a lot of magic into the new earbuds to deliver immersive audio quality and, thanks to our collaboration with renowned acoustics specialists Dynaudio, have packed huge power and exceptional performance into a compact footprint,” said Kinder Liu, President and COO of OnePlus.
The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 comes with a two-tone unibody pairing matte and metallic material for a superior tactile experience. The earbuds will be available in Europe in two colours: Arbor Green picked to match the Halo Green OnePlus Pad and Eternal Green of the OnePlus 11 – and Obsidian Black, for a stylish and fashionable look.
Unlock Audiophile-grade Wireless Sound
OnePlus Buds Pro 2 has two MelodyBoost Dual Drivers that allow users to experience their music as it was recorded in the studio. Co-created with Dynaudio, the dual-driver system includes an 11mm woofer and a 6mm tweeter which enable the earbuds to handle high and low frequencies with ease. OnePlus Buds Pro also features four equalizers developed with Dynaudio including three customized EQs – Bold, Serenade and Bass – so that every song can be heard how it should.
The LHDC 4.0 Ultra-HD Bluetooth engine fitted into OnePlus Buds Pro 2 also ensures high-resolution audio transmission that is close to a wired connection, while the Audio ID 2.0 technology embedded into the earbuds deploys an ear canal scan and a listening test to customize the user experience.
Unlock Immersive Sound
The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 is one of the first TWS earbuds to adopt Google’s signature spatial audio function developed for Android 13, the latest version of its mobile operating system. In collaboration with Google, OnePlus has optimized the spatial audio of the Buds Pro 2 Series to simulate the immersive multi-dimensional experience found in theatres. Under the Android 13 framework, OnePlus also unlocks the spatial audio experience for multi-channel audio sources on YouTube and Disney+.
The audio experience on the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 is elevated when paired with the OnePlus 11 5G smartphone, activating incredible immersive Dolby Atmos audio along with Dolby Head Tracking technology. This creates a wide sound field and clear vocals for a cinematic atmosphere of sound while watching videos. Meanwhile, when users play their music, they are ensured clear and natural sound, enjoying a premium, immersive listening experience that feels like a live concert.
To enable stereo audio sources of mainstream audio and video apps to be supported by the earbuds’ spatial audio functions, OnePlus has incorporated its self-developed stereo up mixing algorithm into the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 so that dual-channel audio streaming platforms could be optimized and enjoyed with multidimensional sound.
To demonstrate the impact of spatial audio, OnePlus has worked with multiple Academy Award- and Grammy-winning composer Hans Zimmer to develop a customised equalizer called Soundscape which has fewer low frequencies than the default setting, as well as a brighter and wider sound field that allows users to enjoy the full orchestral sound of a classical symphony and multidimensional sound of an action film.
Unlock a Smart ANC Experience
OnePlus Buds Pro 2 is equipped with the industry-leading TUV-certified Smart Adaptive Noise Cancellation (ANC) function that eliminates ambient noise up to 48dB and a 4 kHz maximum width. The ultra-high frequency depth of the noise cancellation feature means even sounds like human voices can be better tuned out. Users are given the control to manually adjust the noise cancellation setting according to their needs.
On the opposite side of the noise cancellation feature, the transparency mode allows users to be aware of ambient dangers without taking off their earbuds. When activated, the transparency mode also allows them to have a clear conversation with people even with their earbuds on.
Unlock the Fast & Smooth Experience
The earbuds’ luxurious design is complemented by its high-powered performance that ensures crystal clear calls regardless of the environment. Users are further assured of long battery life with up to 39 hours of music playback. OnePlus Buds Pro 2 also has a fast-charging feature that allows for 10 hours of playback time with only 10 minutes of charging. Those with the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 can enjoy charging their devices sans the wires.
Furthermore, OnePlus Buds Pro 2 strives to deliver seamless connection by being able to connect to two Bluetooth devices simultaneously – saving users from the hassle that comes from switching from one device to another. And with its collaboration with Google, the earbuds come with the Google Fast Pair feature that enables the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 to connect with nearby Android devices without depleting your phone battery. The Bluetooth 5.3 LE Audio also lowers latency to 54ms, which can vastly improve users’ mobile gaming experience. Users can easily manage the earbuds’ functions through its touch control feature, without having to take their phone out.
Unlock the Effortless Life with More Powerful Features
OnePlus Buds Pro 2 are ergonomically designed to fit comfortably into the ears without causing any pressure, making them ideal for long-time use. OnePlus Buds Pro 2 are also IP55 water resistant and have an IPX4 sweat-resistant case, effectively preventing moisture from damaging the device’s internal components.
Finally, OnePlus Buds Pro 2 have also retained its popular Zen Mode Air feature, allowing users to choose from a selection of five white noise tracks to soothe and calm them after a hard day, as well as using its built-in gyroscope to help users retain good physical posture.
