The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 has just been released on the Cloud 11 event. And even though the wireless buds were great at launch, they still had one of the latest features missing.
Yes, the Bluetooth LE audio was not available at launch. However, according to what users report, the feature is going through an update.
That said, OnePlus mentioned the support for Bluetooth LE during the launch. Initially, the rollout was planned for later in 2023.
But the users did not expect the feature to arrive this soon. And that is making OnePlus get so much attention now. So, what exactly is Bluetooth LE Audio?
Well, as OnePlus Buds Pro 2 describes, this feature will enhance the sound quality and performance without using too much energy.
And as you know, high-quality sound and low energy consumption do not go hand in hand with each other. Well, that is precisely why the feature is a current big thing.
With Bluetooth LE audio enabled, you can enjoy the best sound quality from the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 without needing to put the buds in the charging case from time to time.
You can also pair up the LE audio of the Buds Pro 2 with its other sound-enhancing features. While the new feature is on the connectivity side, you can still use Active Noise cancellation (ANC) and Spatial Audio.
On the note of Spatial Audio, the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 will offer you the ability to choose between fixed-tracking and head-tracking modes.
You can choose either of the two depending on what you want, immersive music or better battery life. So, does the new feature make the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 more worthy?
The reviews of the new buds are already out. And what they claim is that the ANC feature is a little behind. There are much better options in that regard.
But if ANC is not your primary factor, the Buds Pro 2 will not disappoint, especially with the new Bluetooth LE audio.
And let’s not forget to mention that there is a good Transparency mode available too. With that enabled, commuting with the buds on your ears will become much easier.
The battery longevity of the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 is also pretty great. At launch, OnePlus promised to offer up to 39 hours of run time. But the battery life should see a jump with the Bluetooth LE audio in the equation.
In short, the new feature has just made the Buds Pro 2 better. And you can definitely consider it if you are looking for a good pair of wireless earbuds.
