OnePlus Nord Buds 2 is officially here and it’s amazing. Perfectly designed to mimic a flagship killer-sort of vibe, the Nord Buds 2 are uniquely crafted with each case different from the another. The well-balanced stem, touch controls on the rear, and the shimmering beauty of the buds will instantly make you fall in love with it.
OnePlus Nord Buds 2 brings onboard a 12.4mm extra large Titanium driver developed to increase the bass quality of the sound you are hearing. It has a layer of titanium built within the vibrating diaphragm tasked with improving audio stiffness making for crystal clear audio.
The Active Noise Cancellation feature on the Nord Buds 2 carries a 25dB depth paired with a dual-core processor. It is engineered to keep the ambient noise out of your ears for an immersive sound experience and zen. The Buds use AAC digital audio encoder/decoder to transfer output over headphones.
You can turn on its Transparency Mode should you want to hear ambient noise as well such as when crossing the road. Above all, it switches instantly without missing a beat.
Say no to blurred or distorted voices when on a call with Nord Buds 2. Its Advanced Clear Call uses a pair of mic systems and AI algorithms to amp up the human voice when on a voice or video call. It filters ambient sound while delivering crystal clear sound on calls like never before.
The OnePlus Nord Buds 2 are equipped with Dirac Audio Tuner and Nord CE 3 Lite, making the sound more immersive thanks to Dolby Atmos in the works. We even have Master Equalizer onboard that lets the audiophiles transcend from Bass to Bold to Serenade to Balance mode as they prefer. Each mode has a distinct output that audiophiles would love to toggle for better sound quality.
OnePlus promises an all-day battery life with the Nord Buds 2. It takes 10 minutes to juice up the battery for 5 hours. Without ANC, you get 36 hours and 27 hours on ANC with the charging case. Without it, you still get up to 5 hours of battery life which is enough to watch two movies or you know, a dozen episodes of FRIENDS.
Luckily, OnePlus Nord Buds 2 isn’t just good-looking but is highly reliable. It has an IP55 rating that keeps it away from water, rain, sand, and sweat which is the most you will find damaging earbuds. Of course, you can’t expect the buds to still perform after a nosedive into the Atlantic Ocean but IP55 is much better at this price point given the features that OnePlus has integrated as well.
