OnePlus Buds 3 Review

The OnePlus Buds 3, which was just released, seems to be part of a whole different product line because the Buds 2 were never released as fully wireless headphones. These could be considered the Buds Z2’s spiritual heirs because they are, technically, more similar to the Nord Buds Z2 in terms of functionality and cost. In the OnePlus audio range, they are priced slightly less than the OnePlus Buds Pro 2, which is a premium model. OnePlus promises to provide quality features at a cheaper price point with its new Buds 3 fully wireless headphones. I have  been using these buds for a week I think that these buds are an excellent choice at Rs. 5,499

OnePlus Buds 3 Review: Design and Features:

The design of the OnePlus Buds 3 case looks similar to the OnePlus Buds Pro 2. When you pick it up, you’ll see that it’s a little chunkier than the other one, which is because the case battery is larger. The case seems less high-end and has a plastic finish than the Buds Pro 2 case, but that’s okay because it costs half as much at retail. I can confidently open and close the case with one hand because of its thicker overall dimensions, which also make it easier to access the earbuds.

The earbuds are available in two finishes: Splendid Blue and Metallic Gray. I brought the Splendid Blue earbuds for review, and they have a nice chrome finish around the stalks with the blue plastic casing exposed closer to the silicon tips.

It also has some grip, though it does get smudgy thanks to these thicker chromed stems than the Buds Pro 2, which prevents them from slipping out of my hands while taking them out of or putting them into the charging case. The earphones fit well, just like the OnePlus Buds Pro 2, and I had no problem wearing them for extended periods without experiencing any pain.

The charging case weighs around 40.8 grams, while each earbud weighs around 4.8 grams, which is not heavy when compared with the OnePlus Buds Pro 2. The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 weight around 50 grams.

This implies that the buds are resistant to water splashes and perspiration from vigorous exercise. A brief USB-C charging cable and two more sets of silicon ear tips are included in the sales package.

OnePlus Buds 3 Review: Performance and Battery Life:

Naturally, for a product in this price range, the audio mostly appeals to those who love bass. This bass, though, isn’t your typical muddy kind; instead, it’s a distinct and clean kind that adds just the right amount of thud to dance music or even movies without being too overwhelming.

However, all of this occurs at the Balanced EQ default level, which does exactly what it says it will: it saves the more bass-heavy sound for the ‘Bass’ setting. Though most people won’t notice it much, the mids continue to suffer a little in this situation. The ‘Serenade’ preset appears to address this to a considerable extent for those that do.

There’s also a BassWave feature, which I found to be unique. By turning it on in the settings, one can lower or raise the bass level as well as enhance it. But no matter where you go, using the functionality just seems to make matters worse, so I opted to leave it off.

With the ANC off, the buds comfortably lasted me 10 hours on a single charge when I played music continuously at 50% volume using the AAC codec. When ANC was enabled, this number decreased to about 6 hours. As anticipated, playing with the heavier LHDC cuts play duration even further, to about 5 hours. The large casing does have certain advantages, such as allowing the earbuds to be used four times on a single charge.

final verdict on OnePlus Buds 3:

The OnePlus Buds 3, a fully wireless earphone that is available for Rs. 5,499, comes with an awesome set of capabilities that have been ported over from the more expensive Buds Pro 2, to the point where certain features are nearly identical. The new slide gestures with touch controls are a highlight among them; they provide a handy way to adjust the music playing and volume without having to take out your smartphone. You still receive good audio quality and functional ANC, even though the inclusion of the LHDC codec is dubious. When combined with well-thought-out companion software that provides the majority of OnePlus smartphone functionality even on non-OnePlus devices, the OnePlus Buds 3 headphones become a very attractive audio package for this price range.
