OnePlus Buds Pro is the company’s premium audio offering with ANC. For quite some time, we have been hearing rumors about a possible sequel, the OnePlus Buds Pro 2.
The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 looks identical to its predecessor from the outside. The TWS earphones are also available in olive green.

For a better fit, the OnePlus Buds 2 Pro will include angled earcups. The earcups are two-tone, with a matte-finished top half and a glossy bottom half.
The charging case has an LED indication and a physical button that will likely enable pairing mode. The words ‘co-created by Dynaudio’ are also inscribed on the charging case. New is an olive green color option.
The original OnePlus Buds Pro came in matte black or glossy white. The design similarities extend to the charging case, which appears to be similar.

We haven’t gotten any pricing information yet, but we’re expecting something closer to $149 for the original OnePlus Buds Pro. Unfortunately, the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 release dates have not yet been estimated.
Still, since the first pair was unveiled in July 2021, successors are already long overdue, and early 2023 seems like a fair bet for an official unveiling.

Specification and features
The first OnePlus Buds Pro included effective noise cancellation, and the new set is likely to follow suit. The headphones are supposed to contain dual 11mm and 6mm drivers and adaptive noise cancellation of up to 45dB.
The headset is expected to include three microphones on both sides. OnePlus Buds 2 Pro will feature the LHDC 4.0 codec and provide spatial audio.
Also, there will be an adaptive ANC, which will decide the level automatically. Other features include Google Fast Pair and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity. The buttons will be dust and water resistant to IP55 standards.

The Buds Pro 2’s battery life will be up to 6 hours with ANC enabled and up to 9 hours if ANC is disabled.
They are said to last up to 38 hours without ANC and 22 hours with ANC on. Fast charging support is said to provide up to three hours of listening after just 10 minutes of charging. Wireless charging will also be supported.
The original OnePlus Buds Pro proved to be one of the best sets of true wireless earbuds of 2021, with good audio, a snug fit, ANC, and wireless charging at a fair price. That is why we are delighted with the arrival of the possible successor to the OnePlus Buds Pro 2.
