OnePlus Nord Buds CE review: Aiming for the ‘Plus’ – Gadgets Now

August 21, 2022 by No Comments

In our opinion, the OnePlus Nord Buds CE would be best suited for listening to soft and electronic music. With music files with a minimum bit rate of 320kbps, the bass is optimum and the mids come out quite strong in songs. So, if you listen to a lot of Pop, Electronic, Instrumental or music from the Indian film industry, these earbuds give a nice listening experience. Maybe for a select Rock songs also but we wouldn’t recommend them for that genre. And these are a strict no-no for Metal music fans. A few of the bands/artists we listened to on the OnePlus Buds CE were One Direction, Breaking Benjamin, Snow Patrol, The Chainsmokers, etc.

For the best listening experience on the OnePlus Nord Buds CE, you need to have files that are of 320kbps or above. If you use paid versions of audio streaming services, then those will also work for these earbuds. With low-bit rate files, the music comes out flaky and the mids are also lacking in intensity and punch.

The OnePlus Nord Buds CE connected rapidly via Bluetooth with devices like smartphones and laptops. You need to tap twice on the right earbud towards the top for the device to go into pairing mode; there is a slight rectangular depression in that area.

In our tests, the Bluetooth connection was found to be overall strong most of the times we used the product. But once, while listening to songs via a laptop, it faltered and kept breaking off and reconnecting (with YouTube videos and system audio files both).

The Bluetooth range of the device is fairly long, about 10-15 metres and you could easily go to another room beside the one where you have kept your mobile or laptop, and listen to songs/talk with someone. Or perhaps take a walk near your workplace if your desk is in a small hall.

The battery life is long enough for you to use the earbuds comfortably for 4-5 days on average on a single charge if you use them for about 1-2 hours every day.
