OnePlus Buds Z2 Review: Too Much Bass, Not Enough Grace | Digital Trends


The OnePlus Buds Z2 with ANC are a big upgrade over the first Buds Z, but have also doubled in price. Do the extra features justify splashing out on them?

Light and comfortable to wear

Bass-heavy sound profile

“Active Noise Cancellation is a welcome addition to the lightweight OnePlus Buds Z2, but the heavy bass delivered by the 11mm drivers can be overpowering, and they don't really stand out enough to beat the competition.”

OnePlus Buds Z2 Review


Quality audio performance with substantial bass depth and bright highs ; Decent noise cancellation for the price

Dolby Atmos requires a OnePlus phone ; User experience is better with OnePlus devices

The true wireless Buds Z2 offer impressive sound, competent noise cancellation, and an intuitive experience for OnePlus phone owners, but they're less enticing for everyone else.

OnePlus Buds Z2 review


Impressive sound and ANC for under $100

Energetic sound ; Powerful quick charging ; Accurate controls ; Effective ANC ; Fast connectivity

Some features remain exclusive to OnePlus users ; Weak call quality ; No wireless charging

The OnePlus Buds Z2 is an entry-level noise-canceller with satisfying performance for the price.

OnePlus Buds Z2 review: A great value companion for OnePlus phones


Can you find a better value for your money? OnePlus does a lot for just $99, find out more in our OnePlus Buds Z2 review.

Solid noise-cancelling

OnePlus is nothing if not aggressive with pricing. The Buds Z2 offer excellent value with decent noise-cancelling, good durability, and a worthy set of microphones.

OnePlus Buds Z2 review: Most effective for OnePlus users


The OnePlus Buds Z2 are an example of a decent sequel that makes it easy to forget what came before them, only you have to also remember what you're missing amongst the mix of features and performance here.

Good sound quality ; Comfortable fit ; Surprising durability ; Reliable ANC performance ; More for OnePlus users ; Fast charging

No EQ ; No aptX codec ; So-so battery life ; Glossy finish fingerprint magnet

OnePlus puts the Buds Z2 in budget territory as a much better alternative to the previous Buds Z, but in so doing, also keeps a couple of key features behind for its own phones. They sound good and are solid all-around performers, but you have to...

OnePlus Buds Z2 review: Great sound and ANC at a super-low price


The Buds Z2 offers almost everything you want from a pair of earbuds and at a great price — but OnePlus users get a slightly better deal.

Quality build ; Low price ; Punchy sound ; ANC on a budget

Slow controls ; Some features unavailable on most phones

You may be tempted to buy these 'buds for your non-OnePlus Android phone, or even your iPhone, and I think there's a strong argument there. You'll miss out on OnePlus' special features, plus whatever buying the equivalent Samsung or Apple 'buds would...
