TL;DR
  • Specs for the rumored OnePlus Buds Pro 2 have leaked online.
  • The earbuds are tipped to come with ANC, improved battery life, and fast charging.

It seems like every company has jumped into the premium true wireless earbuds space in recent years, with OnePlus being no different. The company launched the $150 OnePlus Buds Pro just over a year ago, and we thought they were good but not a standout offering.

It looks like OnePlus is readying a follow-up though, as PriceBaba and Steve ‘Onleaks’ Hemmerstoffer have posted OnePlus Buds Pro 2 specs online. The details suggest a pretty solid successor to last year’s Pro earbuds.

The new earbuds are said to be equipped with 11mm and 6mm dual drivers, LHDC 4.0 codec support, and active noise cancellation (ANC). The latter tops out at up to 45 decibels of noise cancellation and offers adaptive cancellation too. The earbuds also come with three mics each for improved voice isolation.

OnePlus Buds Pro 2: Battery life and fast charging

The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 are tipped to last for up to six hours with ANC enabled, going up to 22 hours with the charging case. Disable ANC and you’re apparently getting up to nine hours of juice, going up to 38 hours with the case. By comparison, the original buds offered five hours and 28 hours of ANC-enabled playback respectively, while disabling ANC yielded seven and 38 hours of playback time respectively.

It wouldn’t be a OnePlus product without fast charging features, and it’s believed that fast charging the case for 10 minutes will yield 10 hours of playback. Meanwhile, charging the earbuds for 10 minutes will apparently translate into three hours of playback.

Other notable features said to come to the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 include wireless charging, Bluetooth 5.2, Google Fast Pair, 69ms audio latency, and an IP55 rating.

The earbuds are tipped to arrive in black, white, and green colorways. There’s no word on pricing just yet, but it’ll presumably be in line with its predecessor.
