OnePlus presents the Nord Buds, its new cheap headphones with support for Dolby Atmos

In addition to its most recent mid-range phones, OnePlus has launched the Nord Buds, its new wireless headphones. They not only stand out for being cheap, but also for incorporating some very outstanding functions such as compatibility with Dolby Atmos .

This positions them as a very interesting option for those looking for good audio quality at a low price. In addition, they have a very interesting autonomy, which can reach 30 hours of playback combined with just one charge.

In terms of design, the OnePlus Nord Buds stand out for their ergonomics and their 12.4-millimeter dynamic titanium drivers. As for color, they are available in black (Black Slate). An interesting point to note here is that the metallic finish has been achieved thanks to the implementation of a special process already used in the OnePlus Buds Pro, called non-conductive vacuum metallization.

It is worth mentioning that the headphones also arrive with IP55 certification against sweat and water. This makes them ideal for use when exercising, since they also boast a coating that prevents corrosion that can be generated by permanent contact with perspiration.

OnePlus Nord Buds, inexpensive headphones with Dolby Atmos

The OnePlus Nord Buds are not the brand's first budget headphones with Dolby Atmos support. This feature had already been implemented in the Buds Z launched at the end of 2020, with the difference that the new model will be launched at an even lower price.

As for connectivity, the Nord Buds use Bluetooth 5.2, and OnePlus has worked to reduce the delay to just 94 milliseconds, thanks to the ultra-low latency mode. Another important point to note is that the headphones incorporate four microphones that reduce the filtering of background noise during calls, also taking advantage of the contribution of AI-based algorithms; In addition, the design has been optimized to reduce wind noise.

Another important fact to keep in mind is that the OnePlus Nord Buds do not work only with mobile phones of the brand. Those who wish to use the new wireless headphones on other Android smartphones can do so by downloading the app Hey Melody.

As for the battery life, beyond what we indicated above, it is important to mention that the headphones support fast charging. According to the manufacturer, a recharge of only 10 minutes is enough to achieve 5 additional hours of audio playback.

Availability and price

Those who wish to have the OnePlus Nord Buds can reserve them from today through the OnePlus website. The headphones will be available to the general public starting May 24, for a price of just 49 euros.

Let us remember that these headphones have not been the only product presented this Thursday by OnePlus. The company also introduced two new mid-range phones that will also hit the market next week: the Nord 2T 5G and the Nord CE 2 Lite.
