OnePlus Buds Pro 2 price leak ahead of global launch on February 7
OnePlus Buds Pro 2 will launch globally on February 7. OnePlus’ flagship true wireless stereo (TWS) earphones will launch alongside the OnePlus 11 and OnePlus 11R 5G at the Cloud 11 event in India and other markets. OnePlus Buds Pro 2 has gone on sale in China. The TWS earbuds will be available soon with the same specs and features globally. Ahead of the official launch, a new leak has revealed the pricing details of the OnePlus Buds Pro 2.
Tipster Snoopy Tech disclosure that OnePlus Buds Pro 2 will launch in Europe for EUR 179 (approximately Rs 15,900). Some markets in Europe will have a starting price of 219 EUR (about 19,400 Rupees). Current OnePlus Buds Pro 2 available in China for 899 CNY (about 10,900 Rupees). Prices for smartphones and electronic items are higher in Europe due to local taxes. Therefore, we can expect the India price of OnePlus Buds Pro 2 to be slightly lower.
The OnePlus Buds Pro (Review) has been launched in India for Rs 9,990. However, considering the upgrades, plus rising component costs coupled with a weakening rupee against the US dollar, we can expect the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 to cost a bit more than predecessor.
The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 has the same design as the original model. It comes with a body design with a two-tone finish. The headphones continue to feature silicone eartips and support for Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) up to 48 dB. The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 also supports Spatial Audio, which is also available in the higher-end Apple AirPods Pro (2nd generation) (Review).
Each headset has three microphones with AI noise reduction. Users can control music playback or answer calls with the touch controls on the body. The headset also supports Bluetooth v5.3. There is also support for many audio codecs, such as AAC, SBC, LHDC, and LC3. The company has partnered with Dynaudio to tune the sound of the headphones.
The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 is said to have up to 39 hours of battery life. The charging case has a 520mAh battery and supports fast charging and wireless charging. The headphones are also IP55 rated for water and dust resistance.
