Last year, the OnePlus Bullets Wireless headphones pair was seen getting Bluetooth-certified so we know audio is being improved for better sound quality.
These earphones were launched at an event in Mumbai today along with the flagship OnePlus 6 smartphone. Unlike Apple's offerings however, the Bullets Wireless feature a wire that holds together the left and right earbuds, in the style of a neck band.
The OnePlus Bullets Wireless earphones use Bluetooth v4.1 connectivity and support Qualcom aptX technology that's touted to provide high-quality audio across a Bluetooth connection. Users can resume playback and take calls simply by pulling the attached earbuds apart.
The OnePlus Bullets Wireless will be available by the end of June via its official online store, and will retail for US69 (~RM274). The neckband includes a button each for power and pairing of the device with OnePlus smartphones.
The OnePlus Bullets Wireless earphones feature memory alloy earbuds with liquid silicon. Carl revealed that these also come with Google Assistant integration which means that you can give commands to your assistant without taking the phone out of the pocket or backpack. OnePlus has added fast charging the its "Bullets Wireless" and it claims that users only need to charge the earphones for about 10 minutes for 5 hours of playback time. There's a magnetic control and total convenience so you can quickly switch between apps, the Google Assistant, and music. It is compatible with any USB Type-C charger. The earphones are also weather-resistant, the company says.
If you're using a OnePlus 5/5T or 6, there is one additional function that you can get from these buds.
