OnePlus Buds Pro Specifications
OnePlus Buds Pro comes with 11mm dynamic drivers and is supported by Dolby Atmos support. The headphones are also designed to provide a latency rate of up to 94 milliseconds (when using Pro Gaming mode) and have Bluetooth v5.2 connectivity. For improved noise cancellation, OnePlus Buds Pro features adaptive noise cancellation with three different modes, namely Extreme, Weak and Smart. Extreme mode brings noise cancellation of up to 40db, while in Faint mode, the headphones are capable of cutting noise up to 25dB. Smart mode, on the other hand, aims to automatically respond to the environment to adjust and compensate for surrounding noise. The headphones also have three microphones to work with preset modes and use software algorithms to filter out unwanted noise.
OnePlus designed the OnePlus Buds Pro charging case with an IPX4 grade water resistance. However, the headphones themselves have IP55-rated construction for dust and water resistance.
OnePlus Buds Pro comes with a proprietary feature called OnePlus Audio ID that helps calibrate the sound profile and customize the experience based on the user’s specific sound settings.
When it comes to battery life, the OnePlus Buds Pro is designed to provide up to 38 hours of battery life on a single charge – along with the charging case. The headphones are also rated to provide 10 hours of playback in just 10 minutes of charging using Warp Charge. The charging case also supports wireless charging based on the Qi pattern.
