Here we have described all OnePlus Buds Z specs without missing any. Before purchasing any electronic equipment, especially earphones, understanding the specifications is really important. 

If you’re are about to purchase it, we will take you a step forward. Here we also provide a detailed review of the OnePlus Buds Z after using it for about two months.

The OnePlus Buds Z release date is October 2020.

OnePlus Buds Z Review in Detail

OnePlus is one of the trusted brands for electronics especially mobiles and earphones. Even though their entry into the earphone segment was a bit late, through quality products they have a huge acceptance all over the world.

If you are looking for a True Wireless Stereo (TWS) earphone in the budget range, the OnePlus Buds Z is the one you can try.

Have a look at the detailed review about it. We have included all the main pros and cons of the item.

Build Quality and Headphone Design

First of all, it is made completely with premium quality plastic. So the weight is less and quality is good. Even though the stem is a bit longer compared to other TWSs, they are comfortable to wear and stylish in design. 

The case is magnetic, so the buds will be seated in the slot automatically on placing. The OnePlus BUds Z case is also smooth to operate with one hand.

But one design flaw we noticed is the hinge, it is completely plastic, and you have to handle it with care.

They are ergonomic in design and hence suitable for long listening hours.

OnePlus Buds Z colours include white and grey.

Sound Quality and Performance

The bass from the 10 mm drivers of the OnePlus Buds Z is not that great. So it is not for punch and bass loving customers. On the other hand, the midranges and vocals are really fantastic. 

The trebles also felt manipulated. You can adjust those problems using an equalizer. 

The OnePlus Buds noise cancellation of both mic and buds is average. It is not a good idea to make calls through this in the outdoors. But in the indoors it works well.

It does not have latency issues, so you can trust this for gaming also. We have tested it for the majority of high-end games on both Android and iPhones.

The Bluetooth version 5 ensures easy and drop-free communication up to 10-12 meters.

The 40 mAh earbuds deliver a playback time of up to 5 hours and using the 450 mAh case you can extend that up to 20 hours.

Premium Features

The OnePlus Buds Z has a Type-C charger and an LED indicator for notifications. A Bluetooth button is also provided next to the port.

A control button is provided at each bud for various functions and you can also customize the functions using a smartphone app, “HeyMelody”. It let you know the battery charge of the case and buds.

If you remove the bud/ buds from your ear/ ears while listening to podcasts or music, it automatically pauses.

It is a premium IP55 rated product means it delivers protection from dust and water. It is one of the best earbuds you can use in the sweaty condition of gyms. The hydrophobic nano-coating actually does the job.

IP55 rating is actually a surprise at this price range. Its quick charging delivers 3 hours of playback time upon a recharge for just 10 minutes.

It supports voice assistant features like Apple’s Siri and Google Assistant.

Final Comments

Here we have discussed everything about the OnePlus Buds Z spec and detailed review. Finally, we would like to say for watching videos and using at the gym, they are the best considering the price range. since it is not a bassy item, we don’t recommend it to bass lovers.

OnePlus Buds Z price India is really worth purchasing considering the features. OnePlus Buds Z special edition is also available with attractive stickers and design. But it is a bit costly.
