After several weeks of teasing, the OnePlus Buds (E501A) have been made official at the same time as the OnePlus Nord during a conference on July 21, 2020. OnePlus is back on low prices: the official public price of OnePlus Buds is only 89 € ! This is less than the € 99.99 requested for the OnePlus Wireless 2.

OnePlus Buds: the brand offers them in white, dark gray and “Nord Blue”

The OnePlus Buds (and their case) are available in three colors: white (White), very dark gray, close to black (Gray), as well as in a blue located between aquamarine and light azure, called ” Nord Blue ”- to better recall the OnePlus Nord. This color will only be available in Europe and India. OnePlus describes headphones “Ergonomic, which ensure a perfect fit for long periods”.

The exact dimensions for each earphone are 18.81 × 16.13 × 37.89mm, with each earphone weighing 4.7 grams. The case, both “Round and refined” weighs 37 grams. It is also coated with a texture “Very soft to the touch”. On the performance side, the OnePlus Buds are equipped with noise reduction technology that relies on three microphones on each earpiece, to improve call clarity.

The OnePlus Buds also carry a 13.4mm dynamic transducer, slightly smaller than that of AirPods Pro or Freepods 3 (both 14mm). The latter would offer OnePlus Buds “Rich sound, clear vocals and deep bass” according to OnePlus. They benefit from the passage of Dolby Atmos technology and an integrated tuner signed Dirac Audio
