I’m a pretty big fan of the original OnePlus Buds Pro and today we’re going to be reviewing the sequel the OnePlus Buds Pro 2. It’s not exactly cheap here in blighty costing 179 quid. But it is still more affordable than the Sony and the Bose 2 wireless earbuds are there and yet the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 are packed with premium specs and some pretty Innovative features as well been testing them for absolutely weeks. Now so here’s my review and for more on the latest and greatest.
Now just like the fresh new OnePlus 11 smartphone. You can grab the buds Pro 2 and a choice of two different colors you’ve got black. Otherwise green and they spot a very similar design to the original earbuds as well, once again you’ve got that airpot style stem sort of dribbling down form the main body of the bird although it is quite short. So it doesn’t stick out for miles to once again have a rubbery silicon tip at the end. There three different sizes bundled in the Box, you can find which ones fit you on particular lug Halls as sunggly as possible and with one Pluse app. These earbuds could even analyze your head orifices to make sure you’ve the right size of tip fitted.
I gotta say the fit is pleasantly comfortable OnePlus Buds Pro 2 as well even if you’re rocking these things inside of your head for a good three four five hours. I never found I got any ear fatigue unless, I was constantly having to pull them out and them back in again, but there is actually a built-in transparency mode, which is quick and easy to activate. So you don’t need to yank them out to actually have a conversation with anyone But when I found the right size of silicon tips for my particular look hauls.
I found that OnePlus buds Pro 2 super snug in there no danger of them falling out at any point and just to prove it watch test. And the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 are also ip55 Splash resistant just like the previous generation. So no worries if you get caught in torrential downpour should be also absolutely fine. Now as you’d expect from a pair of true wireless earbuds launching in 2023. You’ve got Bluetooth 5.3 support so like most other premium buds, these bad boys can get connected to two different devices at once.
I’ve had absolutely no issues with pair of OnePlus Buds Pro 2 and whatsoever but I did notice that when I was connecting these to my OnePlus 11 before the official launch, actually happens. even when I put the buds back inside of their lovely little case. They were still registered as connected to the phone, must just be some weird early bug hopefully that’s be sorted out soon but I’ve had absolutely no problems of that when connecting these to any other smartphone.
If you are using a OnePlus smartphone you’ll have all of the earbud controls built into the Bluetooth menu but everyone else will have to download the hey Melody app thankfully available via the Google Play Store nor hustle whatsoever. and this adds a whole bunch of different controls toggles and features. So for instance you can quickly and easily check on the batch tree life for a minute on your buds though not actually the case unfortunately in here.
OnePlus buds Pro 2-
You can play around with the noise control you’ve also got personalized noise cancellation mode more an all of that in a bit. You’ve also got an EQ that you can play around with with various presets as well as an actual slider. You’ve also got the likes of golden sound and Zen mode air, which again I’ll touch on in a bit and the game mode. Which is supposed to help with the sinking of the audio and the video. Although I didn’t notice this make much of a difference at all. Because the sinking was perfectly fine without that active you could also get the old dual connection on the go. So pair up with two devices at the same time and of course do that earbud fit test.
Now you can’t actually customize the touch controls here on the OnePlus Buds Pro 2. Anyway involving a Quick Squeeze of either of those stems or one squeeze will either pause or play your music. You can double squeeze in order to skip forward a track or triple squeeze in order to skip back a track that works the same identically on the left and the right earbuds. You could also long squeeze in order to quality cycle between the noise cancellation modes and that transparency mode and while I struggled somewhat with the touch controls on the original OnePlus Buds Pro. Thankfully no issues at all with this one.
I didn’t accidentally activate those controls of OnePlus buds Pro 2. While just fiddling with the earbuds or anything like that only real complaint is that there’s no volume controls. But I stroke in the terms for instance as for the actual audio quality pumped out by the OnePlus buds Pro 2, well no complaints there either you’ve got an 11 mil woofer as well as a six mil Tweeter packed into each of these dinky earbuds support for all the usual codex SPC EAC and Ihdc as well.
If your device supports that and using the golden sound features of the hey Melody app. You can actually create a personalized soundscape. What this does is it plays sounds of different pitches and you just need to adjust the on-screen slider until you can’t hear the noise anymore and then after all that you’ll have your own personal audio profile to boost the areas that you would otherwise struggle to here, and if you otherwise struggle to hear and if you happen to have yourself. A Snapdragon hn2 smartphone with the latest Snapdragon sound Shenanigans well. You’ll enjoy a good big of spatial audio support too and the soon to work just fine with supported content on the likes of YouTube and Disney plus.
When you move it’s not the kind of feature of OnePlus Buds Pro 2. I would personally use ever really to be honest but if you want it. It’s there now you’ve got 48 decibel noise cancellation support on here as well. If you stick it on the smart ENC board well the noise cancellation can increase or decrease depending on. How noisy your environment is and there’s also a personalized ANC option as well. Which can apparently adjust it to suit your own particular auditory canals.
I’ve got to admit personally I didn’t notice any difference between using the non-personalized and the personalized version and I pretty much just had it ramped up to the max level at all times to block out as much as humanly possible and while sure of course the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 can’t match the likes of the Sony and the Bose true wireless earbuds for the noise cancellation.
OnePlus Buds Pro 2-
I found OnePlus buds Pro 2 perfectly Goods I rode at the tube up and down bitter Northern like a bit of central line all the noisiest buggers. I could fine and I found that the noise cancellation generally dampened down that awful Screech and sound enough. So I could actually hear a podcast other or sometimes.
When it got really really screechy I did still have to Jack the volume up a bit and one of my favorite features from the original OnePlus Buds Pro has returned as well. That Zen mode air and what this does is when you’re feeling little bit stressed. You feel like you might just at any moment flip out and go a bit mental all you need to do is long press one of these stems for around four or five seconds and then they will start to pump in nice relaxing sounds straight into your skull to soothe you personally I really like summer Seashore that’s my favorite.
I just recommend not choosing the nighttime camping one. If you’ve seen Friday the 13th or any other murder stubby movie that takes place in a forest and as the actual microphones built into the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 well. Absolutely no issues taking a call even when you’re strutting your Merry way down a very busy noisy High Street. Now I’ve got some recording this particular audio sample in a quiet Studio. It’s not really a very fantastic give me one sec right I’m. Now recording this section of the microphone contest with my head right.
Next to a enormous martial sleeper blown horrifically obnoxious and Loud traffic sounds and yeah voice is a bit more muddled. It’s a bit harder to pick up on what I’m saying but these buds are doing a pretty good job of cutting down on the worst of that background sound. So you’ve got at least a bit chance of hearing me that sort of felt so pretty familiar a few little improvement and tweaks here and there but one area that really has improved here on the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 is the battery life I find I now get around six to seven hours of full-on streaming on a single charge and that is with ENC active. You’ll probably get an extra hour or two.
If you did knock noise cancellation offer though I kept it on most of time to be fair. Because I say I just like to block out everything, because I hate the world and then if you do need to give them a boost or you’re simply done listen. You can Chuck them back into the dinky. We OnePlus Buds Pro 2 case and while this isn’t one of the absolute dinkiest true Wireless earbud cases that I’ve rested it is pleasingly Slender sort of slip quite easily into a pocket charges up your buds petty damn quick. You’ll get at least a couple of full recharges out of this thing before it also needs a recharge. You’ve got al type c USB port around back and the case. Once again can be charged wirelessly. If you’ve got a QI standard wireless charging pad and that right.
There is my full final Frank review of the OnePlus buds Pro 2 and while they’re not a massive leap and a jump Evolution over the previous generation. They are a solid all-round package and you know pretty good value for money even if they’re not among the most affordable earbuds out there. If you are looking for solid value for money I’d probably go for the likes of the sound call like instead.
But yes I would very happily use these as my everyday buds all of the time. Overall, if you’re looking for a high-quality pair of true wireless earbuds with excellent sound quality and features, the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 may be worth considering. However, as with any audio product, it’s important to consider your personal preferences and needs before making a purchase decision.
