Alongside the brand new OnePlus 9RT, OnePlus revealed its new Buds Z2 wireless earphones. These come with active noise cancelation, Dolby Atmos support and are rated at 38 hours of battery life including the case and without ANC turned on.
Buds Z2 pack 11mm dynamic drivers and pair over Bluetooth 5.2. They come with support for the AAC and SBC Bluetooth codecs and the BLE, SPP, HFP, A2DP and AVRCP Bluetooth transmission protocols. OnePlus devices dating back to the OnePlus 6 will benefit from fast pair.
ANC on the Buds Z2 is claimed to block out up to 40db of outside noises with the aid of three microphones on each earbud. Buds Z2 are IP55 splash-proof while the case is IPX4 splash resistant. Each bud packs up to 7 hours of autonomous use with ANC off and 5 hours with ANC on. Warp charge is supported here and can give you 5 hours of listening from a 10-minute charge.
OnePlus Buds Z2 come in black and white colors and retail for CNY 499 ($77). First sales in China start on October 19. International availability and pricing were not yet detailed.
