OnePlus Buds Pro specifications
The upcoming OnePlus Buds Pro are reported to feature an in-ear design and see upgrades to the OnePlus Buds launched last year. Kinder Liu, OnePlus’ head of research and development, confirmed to CNET that the earbuds will come with adaptive noise cancellation. It will be equipped with three microphones allowing it to “intelligently produce noise-cancelling counter frequencies.” It will be able to adjust “how much noise cancelling is needed, auto-tuning itself from a minimum of 15 decibels to a maximum of 40db.”
Further, Liu says that OnePlus Buds Pro may offer up to 28 hours of battery life with the charging case with adaptive noise cancellation turned on and up to 38 hours with the feature turned off. Users can toggle noise cancellation via touch controls on the earbuds or via the HeyMelody app. The charging case will come with a USB Type-C port that is likely to offer 10 hours of battery life with just 10 minutes of wired charging. It will also support Qi-wireless charging at 1W speeds. Wired charging speeds are reported to be at 10W.
