Sounds fascinating right? Read the review to discover all the interesting features of the Oneplus Buds Z2.
OnePlus Buds Z2 Design
The overall physical appearance of the new Oneplus Buds Z2 looks quite similar to the Oneplus Bullet. It boasts the same old chunky shape that works perfectly fine to some people’s ears. To wear it in the most comfortable way we suggest you to insert the bud into the ear and slightly turn the stem forward. The length of the stem is significantly smaller than the prior bud while incorporating more hardware into it. The dimension of each bud is 33 X 22.4 X 21.8mm. Besides, each bud weighs around 4.5gms.
Similarly, the charging case of the new Oneplus Buds Z2 looks premium and is a few millimeters taller and wider than the prior variants. The 4.5g case is extensively handy and easy to carry around. It also has a battery LED indicator in the front and the Type-C port and the pairing button in the back. The hinge on the other hand is brawny and the lid does not wiggle around when carrying. The entire case has a glossy finish while the inner portion has matte trims.
The Oneplus Buds Z2 has IP55 water and sweat resistance rating and the charging case has IPX4 splash resistance.
Features and Functionalities
The Oneplus Buds Z2 is set up with the Hey Melody application that is compatible with both Android and iOS. If you use a OnePlus smartphone then you will find the app in the device’s firmware and you will also find a few supplementary features. The Hey Melody application will let you modify the touch controls, toggle through the audio settings, and perform a bud fit test. However, if you are not using the OnePlus device then you cannot adjust the bass levels.
Another enticing feature of Oneplus Buds Z2 is that you can ring the buds if you cannot find them. This certainly means that your bud must be connected to your device and should have an adequate charge on it. Therefore, you cannot track the buds if they are inside the case and closed.
The quick Switch feature allows you to alternate between two devices. To enable this feature you should hold the bud for three seconds. After that, the buds will be disconnected from the primary device and reconnects to the previously paired device. Here the device can be a phone, a tablet, or a computer.
OnePlus Buds Z2 Performance
The sound quality is good with strong bass and loud mid-ranges. The adequate bass goes well with all genres of music. However, the treble on the other hand is not quite up to par. You can hear certain distortion on the higher range of the EQ. Besides, it feels like the buds completely lose the balance of sound on higher ranges.
Oneplus Buds Z2 also offers you the noise cancellation feature. Further, you can choose between a normal and “Max” noise cancellation level. However, the customary mode performs better than the “Max” mode for some reason. But in any case, the noise cancellation feature is decent.
The company touts that the device will easily last for about 38-hours of total listening time with ANC turned off. The buds incorporate a 40mAh battery and can specifically last up to 7-hours on a single charge. Nonetheless, if you turn on the ANC then the number will decrease to 5-hours. Similarly, the buds also support the “Flash Charging” which states that a 10-minute of charging will provide a 5-hours of listening time.
OnePlus Buds Z2 Price in Nepal
The Oneplus Buds Z2 price in Nepal is expected to be around Rs.12,000. The overall sound quality of the device is good and the IP55 certification for dust and water makes things further better. Besides, the device boasts an up to snuff bass and several tempting features that will certainly not disappoint you.
