OnePlus confirms active noise cancellation for Buds Pro earphones

OnePlus has confirmed that the upcoming Buds Pro in-ear headphones will get active noise cancellation. The company speaks of ‘adaptive noise cancellation’ and says that the earphones have three microphones for the function.

With those three microphones, the earphones can monitor the external sounds so that counter-noise can be produced, the company tells CNET. In addition, the earphones can produce 15 to 40dB of counter-noise. Users can turn off the noise canceling by pulling down the stem of one of the earphones, or via the HeyMelody app.

Including charging case, the earphones have a maximum battery life of 38 hours, without active noise reduction. If users want to listen to music with the active noise canceling, the earphones including charging case last a maximum of 28 hours.

For charging, the Buds Pro support Warp Charge with up to 10W. After ten minutes of fast charging, the case offers a battery life of ten hours. Users do not have to use a specific cable or adapter for this, any USB-C cable will suffice, says OnePlus. Wireless Qi charging goes with a maximum of 2W.

Images are not yet shared, although CNET says it has seen the ears. They would resemble Apple’s AirPods Pro earphones, with matte black and glossy metallic colors. The earphones have been under development at the company since last July and therefore date from before the integration with OPPO. OnePlus will share more information about the earphones on July 22, along with the unveiling of the Nord 2.
