The OnePlus Buds were introduced roughly a year ago, and we were generally impressed with their audio performance and features, especially for the price. While these wireless earbuds didn't offer active noise cancellation like its pricier rivals, it was hard to argue with the $79 price tag. Now, it appears that OnePlus is looking to offer a more premium version of its wireless earbuds, and they are aptly called OnePlus Buds Pro. In addition, OnePlus' The Lab is currently accepting applications for testers for two products: the Nord 2 5G smartphone that we talked about earlier this week and the Buds Pro Edition. OnePlus doesn't give us any information on specifications for the Buds Pro, but you... Read more...
We've got some great deals for you today if you're looking to purchase a new smartphone and some accompanying accessories. We reviewed the OnePlus 8T last month and found it to be a competent smartphone desperately in need of a price cut. Well, that's just what B&H Photo has in store today for the smartphone. The OnePlus 8T has an MSRP or $749, but B&H Photo is lopping $120 off that price, taking it down to a much more palatable $629. At that price, the OnePlus 8T is definitely more competitive with the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, which has an MSRP of $699, but regularly goes on sale for $599.  While this is a good price, it's not quite as good as the deal from earlier this...

When we reviewed the OnePlus 8T last month, we concluded that it was a great phone that was in dire need of a price cut. Priced at $749, the OnePlus 8T just didn't make a strong case for itself given not only the competition from other smartphones -- like the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE -- but also its own siblings like the $599 OnePlus 8. It appears that OnePlus has been listening to the many pricing complaints from around the internet, as it is currently running a deal on the OnePlus 8T that is sure to get your attention. The only hiccup with this deal is that you have to be in the market for two smartphones at the same time. If you were to purchase one OnePlus 8T, you'll pay the regular... Read more...
We got our hands on the OnePlus 8T for review earlier this month, and put it through the usual benchmark regimen, took photos with its [many] cameras, and pondered about its place on OnePlus' smartphone lineup. Today, however, is the big day when you can actually purchase the device to add to your tech arsenal. There are a number of places where you can purchase the OnePlus 8T including direct from OnePlus. T-Mobile is also offering its own unique version of the OnePlus T that comes with an added bonus not afforded to the unlocked versions -- an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. However, we'd image that many people will likely end up buying the smartphone from... Read more...
Over the summer, we reviewed the OnePlus Buds, which are true wireless earbuds with surprisingly good sound quality for a reasonable $79. Compared to the $129 Apple AirPods, the OnePlus Buds represented a refreshing alternative (as well as a foil for U.S. Customs and Border Protection). Now, the company is back with a new set of wireless earbuds that are launching alongside the OnePlus 8T (you can read the HotHardware review here), and they're called the OnePlus Buds Z. If you thought that OnePlus was being aggressive with the original Buds, you haven't seen anything yet. The OnePlus Buds Z are being offered at an incredible $45.99. And despite the lower price, in some ways,... Read more...
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has quite a bit of egg on its face this evening after a tweet that it posted went viral. The Washington, D.C. based agency’s mission — as stated on its Twitter profile — is to “[Secure] our nation's borders”  “facilitating lawful international travel & trade.” As part of this mission, the CBP gleefully explained that it seized 2,000 counterfeit Apple AirPods that arrived in the United States from Hong Kong on August 31st. The counterfeit goods were discovered at an air cargo facility on a layover at JKF International Airport in New York, enroute to their final destination in Las Vegas, Nevada,... Read more...
If there’s still any doubt that truly wireless earbuds are a thing, let us introduce you, dear reader, to the second wave -- exemplified by the OnePlus Buds. See, the first wave really took off when Apple introduced the original AirPods -- meh sound, OK battery life, high price. The focus was on convenience, reliability, and calls. Other major brands followed suit, like Samsung, Sony, Jabra, Amazon, Microsoft, and most recently Google -- some offering special features like long battery life, or active noise cancellation, or tight AI assistant integration. You either spent upwards to $200 on these brands, or bought cheap (and often crappy) no-name TWS (true wireless stereo) earbuds on Amazon... Read more...
Leaked images of a set of true wireless earbuds from OnePlus called the OnePlus Buds have surfaced online. The photos reportedly come from an app that was uploaded to the web called OnePlus Pods. The images are taken from the app and show three available colors, and what the earbuds and their associated charging case look like. As for where the app came from, it was reportedly discovered within the latest OxygenOS update for the OnePlus 8 smartphone. What we can see in the images is three different colors, including black, white, and light blue shade. Unfortunately, there is no indication of how long the earbuds will run per charge or how much power is inside the charging cases from the leaked... Read more...
