OnePlus has announced that it will be launching its flagship wireless earbuds, the OnePlus Buds Pro 2, in India and other markets on February 7. The company states that the Buds Pro 2 will establish a new standard for Spatial Audio and will offer exciting new features for Android users.
OnePlus Buds Pro 2 will use Google Android’s Spatial Audio
The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 is one of the first TWS earbuds to feature Google’s Spatial Audio, a feature developed for Android 13. This technology creates a multi-dimensional audio experience within the earbuds, ensuring that the sound always comes from a fixed position regardless of movement, providing the same quality of 3D audio as in the cinema, according to the company.
In partnership with Google, OnePlus has optimized the spatial audio of the Buds Pro 2 to simulate the immersive multi-dimensional experience found in movie theatres. Using OnePlus’ spatial rendering algorithm and IMU sensor, the Buds Pro 2 is claimed to take the Spatial Audio feature to the next level, adding stability, and compatibility with app expansions, and enabling other applications to use its technology.
OnePlus Buds Pro 2 features (expected)
In its goal of creating seamless connections, OnePlus stated that the Buds Pro 2 increases its efficiency with Android’s Fast Pair feature, which allows for quick and easy connection to nearby Android devices with just one tap.
Additionally, the Buds Pro 2 can connect to two Android devices simultaneously and seamlessly switch between them based on your actions, thanks to Android’s audio switching feature, eliminating the need to manually adjust Bluetooth settings.
To ensure compatibility with a wide range of audio sources, OnePlus has developed a custom stereo up-mixing algorithm, creating multi-dimensional sound from mainstream audio and video apps. The price of the earbuds in India will be announced at its launch in a couple of weeks.
Commenting on the Buds Pro 2 and Spatial Audio for Android 13, Erik Kay, VP of Engineering at Android, said:
“With Android 13, we added spatial audio functionality with the opportunity for partners to use it within their own devices. 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.”
