OnePlus Buds Z2 specifications 

OnePlus Buds Z2 comes with a new in-ear design, ditching hard plastic tips in favour of in-ear silicone tips. The second-generation Buds Z earbuds pack 11mm, dynamic drivers, with support for Bluetooth 5.2. The earbuds come with AAC and SBC Bluetooth codec support along with support for BLE, SPP, HFP, A2DP, and AVRCP Bluetooth transmission protocols. The new earbuds bring support for fast pairing, compatible with OnePlus devices as old as OnePlus 6.

The main highlight feature of the earbuds is the Active Noise Cancellation. The ANC on Buds Z2 claims to block out noises up to 40db, thanks to 3microphones on each of the earbuds. Further, the Buds Z2 has IP55 splash-proof certification, while the case is IPX4 certified. OnePlus promises up to 5 hours of battery life with ANC turned on, and turning off ANC would add 2 more hours to the listening time. Thanks to Warp Charge, 10 minutes of charge would last you up to 5 hours of listening. OnePlus Buds Z2 comes in two colours – black and white.

The OnePlus RT price in India is expected to be under Rs 40,000 going by its China pricing of CNY 3299. The OnePlus Buds Z2 is priced in China for CNY 499 (around Rs 5,815).
