Alongside the unveiling of the OnePlus 11 and OnePlus 11R, the brand also announced the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 series to the global market. The second-generation earbuds from OnePlus come with several interesting features, including Spatial audio, Dynaudio tuning, Adaptive noise cancelation, and more.
There are two models, higher Buds Pro 2 and a cheaper Buds Pro 2R. Both these supports 48db TUV-Certified Adaptive Noise Cancellation, 54ms low latency, features 11mm + 6mm MelodyBoost Dual Drivers Co-created with Dynaudio.
The earbuds also supports Dolby Atmos and spatial audio in collaboration with Google. This uses six-axis IMU and self-developed spatial rendering algorithm for a premium, immersive listening experience that feels like a live cinematic experience, no matter the content, said the company. However, the 2R model lacks head tracking feature.
There is LHDC 5.0 (To be added via OTA update) with a transmission rate of up to 1Mbps for 4 times better details. It can also monitor cervical spine pressure and posture when using a compatible device (To be added via OTA update in 2023). It has IP55 ratings for dust and water resistance.
