Today we’re diving into the new Bluetooth 5.3 LC3 and LHDC codec Buds from OnePlus, the OnePlus Buds Pro 2. These are the company’s 2nd gen pair of truly wireless earbuds, and I have to say, they definitely step up their game with this one.
First off, let’s talk design, Buds Pro 2 have a sleek and modern look, coming in two colors, arbor green and obsidian black, buds weigh just 4.9g , they fit comfortably in your ear, and I appreciate the IP55 protection, which means they’re resistant to dust, water, and sweat, Other, the charging case has IPX4 protection, so you don’t have to worry about any accidental splashes.
Now, the real selling point for me is the audio quality, Buds pack an 11mm driver and a 6mm tweeter, which means you’re getting some serious sound out of these. And with the support of the latest Bluetooth 5.3 technology, along with SBC, AAC, and LHDC 4.0 lossless codec and LC3, First time I’ve activley used earbuds with it, Clear vocals and deep bass, what more could you want?
The earbuds also have three microphones, which ensures clear call quality, even in noisy environments. And let me tell you, during my tests, the call quality was strong, at least according to the other party.
