OnePlus Buds Z Review


Affordable ; Sculpted sound signature will appeal to bass lovers ; Dust- and water-resistant build

Sound signature not for those seeking accuracy ; OnePlus phone required for best user experience

The $50 Buds Z are solid true wireless earphones for bass lovers with a OnePlus phone.

Excellent value ; Decent sound ; Competitive battery life ; Passive sound isolation

OnePlus Buds Z review: Cheaper and better than the OnePlus Buds


The OnePlus Buds Z are more affordable than the OnePlus Buds, but are they actually better? Find out in our full review!

Affordable ; Good fit ; Fast charging ; IP55 dust- and water-resistance ; Automatic ear detection ; Bluetooth 5.0, quick switch ; Dolby Atmos support (limited)

SBC and AAC only, no aptX ; Companion app still in development ; Limited onboard control

The OnePlus Buds Z are unpretentious true wireless earbuds for listeners on a budget. If you don’t need bells and whistles like noise-cancelling or multipoint connectivity, you may be enticed by OnePlus. Even with the affordable price point, the Buds Z...

OnePlus Buds Z Review


Is this the best true wireless headset under Rs. 3,000?

Comfortable, good passive noise isolation ; USB Type-C, fast charging ; Dolby Atmos, AAC Bluetooth codec support ; Enjoyable sound ; Excellent value for money

Some features need a OnePlus smartphone to work ; Limited controls on the earpieces

When it comes to gadgets and tech, the second time is often the charm, especially when brands try to enter new product segments. The OnePlus Buds Z is a great example of exactly that; it costs Rs. 2,000 less than the

OnePlus Buds Z review


Bullseye Buds

Lightweight and silicon tips, comfortable fit ; Tonally rich, punchy but not overblown ; In-ear detection at this price is a boon

Silicon tips create a “vacuum” effect ; Dolby Atmos doesn’t make its presence felt ; Touch controls only skip tracks

You can spend more to get an inferior sound. The Buds Z represent tremendous value for money and ace at most types of music too!
