OnePlus has recently announced its upcoming OnePlus Buds Pro 2 will be launching in markets outside China on 7 February 2023 during the OnePlus Cloud 11 Event and will offer a new standard for spatial audio stability.
OnePlus is collaborating with Google to make the Buds Pro 2 as one of the first TWS earbuds to adopt Google’s signature spatial audio feature developed for Android 13. This creates a multi-dimensional experience within a pair of tiny earbuds. Because of this, the sound always comes from a fixed position regardless of movement, with the same quality of 3D audio as in the cinema. Using OnePlus’ spatial rendering algorithm and IMU sensor, the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 takes the spatial audio feature to the next level, with added stability, compatibility with app expansions, and enabling other applications to use its technology.
To bring seamless connections for the users, the Buds Pro 2 uses Android’s Fast Pair feature, which lets you quickly connect to nearby Android devices in one tap. With Android’s audio-switching feature, the Buds Pro 2 is able to connect to two Android devices simultaneously and seamlessly switch the audio between them based on your actions, without the hassle of having to fiddle with Bluetooth settings.
Apart from that, the Buds Pro 2 is equipped with a bespoke stereo up-mixing algorithm, creating multi-dimensional sound from mainstream audio and video apps.
“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.”
