The Buds Z has a simple yet classy look and have an elongated, stem like design, which makes it easier to wear the earbuds. They also have flat back with Touch surface on the back along with an LED indicator. With the silicone angled earbuds, they stay put in the ear quite comfortably.

Sound Quality :
We have been using these OnePlus Buds Z for quite some time, and we can say that the Sound Quality of these is really really good. The vocals are quite crisp and clear and bass is also very nice.
Noise Cancelling :
As soon as you put these into your ear, you will notice that around 50% of the noise has been blocked.
While listening to songs on high volume with these on, one might not notice any background noises as well.
Call Quality :
The call quality of OnePlus Buds Z is really really good. We used these to talk over the phone and our experience was really nice. However it does not cancels out the loud background noises completely but it minimizes it to the level where the caller and receiver both could hear to each other’s voice quite clearly. All over we found the quality of these over call quite satisfying.
Battery life :
Over using these for ourselves we found that the total playback time on these OnePlus Buds Z is around 4.8-5 hours depending upon the volume. And overall we get up to 19-20 hours of battery life.
Worth the Price :
Being in the 3000 INR price range that too a TWS with bass, we think that the OnePlus Buds Z ’s built quality, look and overall sound quality is really nice. The OnePlus Buds Z also fits really well in the ears. The IP55 water and sweat resistance is also a good addition.
Acoording to us, these OnePlus Buds Zs are really worth the price you’ll pay for them.
