The company has also announced the Oneplus Buds pro which comes with adaptive noise cancellation that can filter out up to 40db of sound from your surroundings.

The earbuds can last up to 31 hours with the charging case and seven without them with ANC disabled. When you switch ANC on, the earbuds get five hours of playback and 23 hours with the case. and can be charged for use up to 10 hours in 10 minutes. The case supports wireless charging as well.

They’re also IP55 water-resistant so you don’t have to worry about any splashes here and there. There are three microphones on each bud that filter out your voice so you can be heard more clearly over calls.

The drivers are 11mm in size and the buds also feature something called a Zen Mode that can play white noise through the earbuds helping users sleep or meditate. Lastly, there’s support for Oneplus fast pair which is very similar to how AirPods pair up with iPhones.

The buds are priced at $/€149 available from August 25 with preorders starting on August 18 in Europe. The Oneplus Buds Pro will go on sale in the US on September 1.

The price and release date for the OnePlus Buds Pro in India haven’t been released yet. We’ll update this section when it is.
