OnePlus recently shared a look at the OnePlus Buds Pro 2, the brand’s newest pair of TWS earbuds that’s powered by Google’s Fast Pair and Spatial Audio.
Specifically, the Buds Pro 2 is among the first TWS earbuds to feature Google’s spatial audio feature that’s developed for Android 13 devices. With this feature, the sound will be perceived to come from a fixed position regardless of movement, giving users a cinema-like 3D audio experience.
To further enhance the 3D audio effect, OnePlus states that the new earbuds uses the brand’s spatial rendering algorithm and IMU sensor for an even more theater-like sound.
Aside from 3D audio, the earbuds also features Fast Pair, Google’s tech that allows the earbuds to connect to nearby Android devices with one tap. The feature also allows the earbuds to be connected to two devices simultaneously, as well as switch the audio between them — no need to play around with Bluetooth settings.
“With Android 13, we added spatial audio functionality with the opportunity for partners to use it within their own devices,” said Erik Kay, VP of Engineering at Android. “With OnePlus integrating this new framework alongside support for Fast Pair and audio switching, we’re looking forward to adding their Buds 2 Pro Series to the Android ecosystem of connected devices that all work better together.”
The Buds Pro 2 will be launched at the brand’s upcoming Cloud 11 Event on February 7, 2023. Find out more at oneplus.com.
