OnePlus at its OnePlus 8T launch event also announced the Buds Z truly wireless earbuds. The new earbuds are actually the watered-down version of the OnePlus Buds that went official in July this year.
OnePlus touts the OnePlus Buds Z have powerful bass and they feature ergonomic design with interchangeable silicon tips for comfortable wear. One more feature of the Buds Z that OnePlus chose to highlight first is the IP55 rating, which means the earbuds are dust and sweat-resistant so that you can wear them pretty much anywhere.
OnePlus Buds Z comes with 10mm audio drivers that together with Dolby atmos and its own bass technology aim to deliver powerful bass and clear vocals.
Coming to the battery life, the OnePlus Buds Z offers a total of 20 hours of battery life combined with the charging case. Also, it delivers five hours of usage on a single charge. It also supports fast charging and can deliver three hours of music playback with 10 minutes of charging.
