The noise reduction function has become the standard configuration of mid-to-high-end TWS headphones. After all, the scenes of wearing headphones are more outdoors. And to do a good job in noise reduction, you may need to sacrifice the volume, sound quality, battery life, etc. of the headset, so the headset with noise reduction function is equal to the castrated version of the headset?
For a long time, OnePlus has always been known as “only the flagship”, not only the mobile phone, but also the headset. Recently, OnePlus launched its flagship headset of the year——OnePlus Buds Pro.
OnePlus Buds Pro is OnePlus’ first active noise-canceling headphones, and at the same time it brings professional-grade sound quality enjoyment, and incorporates a lot of black technology, just to let users feel that the headphones in hand are perfect.
Upon receipt of the packaging, we can feel that this headset is indeed “very OnePlus.” The eye-catching red and white color scheme, full of OnePlus style, can be seen from a distance.
The packaging of OnePlus Buds Pro is exactly the same as that of OnePlus mobile phones, with the same sense of hierarchy, and the addition of a window, which makes users more curious about the sense of perspective.
The red and white Type-C charging cable brings a full OnePlus style like the package. It is easy to use and beautiful, which is what users like.
OnePlus Buds Pro offers black and white color options. This is a black color, with a three-dimensional fusion texture that imitates black diamonds, and the hand feel and visual sense are quite good.
Looking at the charging case of OnePlus Buds Pro from the side, it is angular. The thickness is quite slim design among similar products on the market, especially for those with noise reduction function. Such a rounded square box design is also different from the more “pebbles” design on the market, and it is visually comfortable.
At the bottom of the charging case is the Type-C interface, which will not affect the opening and closing of the upper lid connection when charging. The design of the clamshell opening and closing is obviously carefully processed, and you can feel a sense of smoothness when opening and closing. When it is expanded to the maximum, there will be a slight card position, allowing the lid to open steadily, and the moment of closing will be crisp The click sound.
Open the cover and you can see that the two earphones are embedded very comfortably, which is one of the reasons why the charging case is thinner. Coupled with the strong suction, as long as the earphone is close to the embedded position, it can be automatically and stably absorbed, and there is no need to worry about the embarrassment of the contacts not being in good contact.
Taking a closer look at the OnePlus Buds Pro earphones, the matte surfaces coexist elegantly. It turns out that this is the NCL process. On the one hand, it maintains the OnePlus-level texture and feel, on the other hand, it enhances the touch recognition of the headset.
In terms of styling, the OnePlus Buds Pro earbuds adopts an ergonomic design that conforms to the human ear canal, and it can fit the ear canal comfortably by gently placing it on the ear. And a single earphone is only 4.4g, which brings continuous comfort to wear.
It is worth mentioning that the metallic glossy surface of the earphone is a pressure-sensitive area, and various earphone functions can be realized by one-click, double-click, three-click, long pinch, etc., and there will be prompt sound feedback when the function is realized.
“Long pinch”, which is a feature of the touch OnePlus Buds Pro, is not suitable for a single finger to touch on the metal glossy pressure sensitive area, but requires the index finger and thumb to operate the touch. Perhaps new users need a certain period of adaptation, but this touch method can avoid accidental touches and reduce the awkwardness of use.
The black version of OnePlus Buds Pro and the black version of OnePlus 9 Pro are a natural pair. The matte finish of the two is the same. The characteristics of this process not only have a good texture and a good hand feel, but also reduce dirt and are not easy to stain fingerprints.
Generally speaking, if you connect the headset with your mobile phone for the first time, you need to turn on the Bluetooth in the settings and manually connect to the corresponding Bluetooth signal.
But in the “OnePlus package”, it doesn’t have to be so troublesome. Just because OnePlus Buds Pro supports flash connection when opening the cover, as long as the charging case cover is opened, the interface of OnePlus 9 Pro will automatically pop up. Turning the complex into simple, the connection can be so convenient, and it can give users a better experience.
For further experience, it is recommended that users first click on the OnePlus Buds Pro on the Bluetooth page of the mobile phone to enter the device interface. There is a dedicated interface for the headset, with richer settings and new gameplay. For example, it is the introduction of control, the customization of control, and the search for headphones, firmware updates, etc.
More special is the headphone fit detection and personalized hearing, both of which are the black technology that OnePlus brings to this premium headphone. In particular, the personalized hearing technology can detect the user’s hearing defects, and through the adjustment of the sound to compensate for the hearing, the user can obtain a clearer music hearing and naturally improve the sound quality and detail of the music.
Through the test, the system will simulate a personalized compensation curve for the exclusive user, and provide a comparison of the hearing perception before and after the test. It is recommended that all new users perform this special test for the first use, and the subsequent listening to songs will feel better.
OnePlus Buds Pro is OnePlus’ first active noise-canceling headphones. Its advanced feature is its intelligent active noise-canceling (ANC) function.
In the settings, it is easy to find the noise reduction settings, which are: weak noise reduction, smart noise reduction, and strong noise reduction. Three modes are optional, and they can be easily set by touching on the headset.
It is understood that the noise reduction depth of OnePlus Buds Pro can reach 40dB, especially in the strong noise reduction mode. Of course, in daily use, it is recommended to start the intelligent noise reduction mode. Whether it is taking a bus or subway, or walking on a noisy street, it can make listening to music more immersive due to its excellent noise reduction performance feel.
OnePlus is equipped with an 11mm dynamic driver and flexible composite diaphragm for OnePlus Buds Pro. Among similar headphones, the bass of OnePlus Buds Pro is obviously more surging and powerful. It is very cool to listen to electronic dance music, and it has more advantages for games, audio and video. .
Not only that, the mid and high frequencies of OnePlus Buds Pro are also quite clear and bright. It turns out that this is the advantage of the dual damping independent rear cavity design. By suppressing excessive sound standing waves, the sound quality is cleaner.
In terms of music format, it is recommended that you use lossless format music to match the OnePlus Buds Pro to enjoy, especially the songs in the audition disc category, which can find the high-quality sound effect like wired headphones. For example, if you appreciate Tsai Qin’s songs, you can feel that OnePlus Buds Pro has its own characteristics in vocal processing, which can make the vocals more forward and close your eyes, just like a singer is singing in front of you.
It is worth mentioning that the OnePlus Buds Pro is equipped with Bluetooth 5.2, and its biggest highlight is the low-latency dual transmission, the delay can be as low as 94ms. This is a great blessing for friends who like to play games. Finally, they can use the bluetooth earphones to play “PUBG Mobile” without worrying about the delay problem affecting the operation judgment.
Finally, there is a small surprise. In addition to supporting fast charging (10 minutes of charging, 2 hours of listening to music), OnePlus Buds Pro also supports Qi wireless charging, and supports OnePlus 9 Pro wireless reverse charging. In this way, the use experience in daily life can be more convenient and fun.
In addition, the headset itself can have 10 hours of battery life, and the total battery life of the charging case can even reach 33 hours (with adaptive noise reduction turned off).
In addition, the earphones have IP55 dustproof and waterproof grade standard certification, and the charging case also has IPX4 waterproof. It is very comfortable to use OnePlus Buds Pro when going out.
After experience, OnePlus Buds Pro is not only OnePlus’ first active noise reduction headset, but also a competitive flagship product. From the familiar packaging to the good-quality appearance design, from the intelligent deep noise reduction to the high-resolution sound quality experience, as well as the various black technology details that can be seen intuitively on the settings page, OnePlus Buds Pro really gives people a more “Pro” feeling.
This time, OnePlus redefines the TWS flagship, and the price is very attractive, I believe OnePlus Buds Pro will become OnePlus’s iconic product in the field of acoustics and lOT.
