OnePlus, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has designed a wireless variant of their bullet earphones. The new Bullets Wireless is more ergonomic and comes with new features that can improve the smartphone experience. The company has also announced its pricing and availability in India during the launch of OnePlus 6. So without further ado, let us get into the details.
OnePlus Bullets Wireless Features
The Bullets Wireless is designed to rest comfortably on your neck with the help of perfectly balanced aluminium alloy design. It also comes with fins that allow the bullets to hug on to your ear even if you are doing workouts. The two earbuds are connected with a stretch-resistant cable which also carries the battery and physical controls.
Another interesting feature is the Magnetic control, which allows you to pause/pause the music by clipping/separating the two earbuds. OnePlus says that they will add the call pickup and hangup function to this magnetic control in a future update. However, the magnetic control feature will only work on mobiles starting OnePlus 5 and above with latest updates. To add to this convenience, if your phone has Google Assistant, then you won’t be taking the phone out of your pocket that often.
Even though the earbuds use Bluetooth, it supports aptX codec to provide superior audio quality. But the sonic benefits will be noticeable only if your mobile device supports the same. Any stray sound waves will be absorbed by the Energy Tubes within the earbuds to minimize distortion. It also features a premium 9.2 mm driver to provide a richer bass experience.
Some other cool features are fast charging and water resistance. You can get around 5 hours of listening time with a single 10-minute charge, while a full charge gives you up to 8 hours. OnePlus says, you just need to use any standard USB-C cable, but also recommends using the official power adapter. Coming to water resistance, OnePlus mentions that it is designed to withstand rain, sweat and stray splashes but prolonged contact should be avoided. Moreover, they haven’t mentioned any IP certification and clearly warns that liquid damage is not covered under warranty.
