OnePlus has launched a new pair of TWS headphones, dubbed OnePlus Nord Buds CE, in India. As the name suggests, the new headphones are part of the company’s Nord portfolio and are a toned down version of the existing Nord headphones. The Nord Buds CE are aimed at budget-conscious customers, but the specs are quite modest. Key features include 13.4mm audio drivers, AI noise cancellation, and 20 hours of listening time.
OnePlus Nord Buds CE Price in India
The OnePlus Nord Buds CE are priced at Rs 2,299, and they are available for purchase from the OnePlus India online store. These will also be retailed on Flipkart, where customers can get 5% cash back with an Axis Bank Flipkart card.
The OnePlus Nord Buds CE are available in Moonlight White and Misty Grey.
As a reminder, the OnePlus Nord Buds currently cost Rs 2,799 in India. OnePlus is also selling more affordable OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z2 wireless headphones at Rs 1,999.
OnePlus Nord Buds CE Specifications, Design
In terms of design, the OnePlus Nord Buds CE strongly resemble the Apple AirPods with a rigid design and no silicone tips. The company is also returning to long-stem headphones, as we saw on the original OnePlus Buds Z. The charging case has an egg-shaped design and adopts the same color as the headphones. The inner part of the case sports a darker tone to give a modern and minimalist look.
In terms of specifications, the earbuds feature 13.4mm dynamic drivers with a frequency response of 20Hz to 20,000Hz. The OnePlus Nord Buds CE support Bluetooth 5.2 and users can pair them with an iPhone, Android, a tablet and any Bluetooth-enabled smartphone. The company claims an audio range of 10 meters as well as standard AAC and SBC audio formats. Android users will have an advantage as they can change the settings with the Hey Melody app. However, iOS users will not get this support.
Each earbud houses a 27mAh battery, while the charging case gets a 300mAh battery. The OnePlus Nord Buds CE are claimed to deliver up to 4.5 hours of listening time at 50% volume when fully charged. Total music playback with the case is estimated at 20 hours.
