Technology brand OnePlus is set to introduce its flagship wireless earbuds, the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 on Feb. 7, 2023. Promising exciting new features for Android users, the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 aims to set a new standard for spatial audio stability and compatibility for users.
The OnePlus Buds Pro 2 is one of the first TWS earbuds to adopt Google’s signature spatial audio feature developed for Android 13 that creates a multi-dimensional experience. The sound comes from a fixed position regardless of movement, with the same quality of 3D audio as in the cinema.
In collaboration with Google, OnePlus has optimized the spatial audio of the Buds Pro 2 to simulate the immersive multi-dimensional experience found in theaters. 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.
“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.”
Android Fast Pair
The Buds Pro 2 increases its efficiency with Android’s Fast Pair feature, which lets users 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.
OnePlus also developed a bespoke stereo up-mixing algorithm, creating multi-dimensional sound from mainstream audio and video apps.
