OnePlus Buds 3, the affordable flagship-level earbuds, are set to launch in China on January 4. These wireless earbuds are rumored to be priced at €99 in the European region, making them significantly cheaper than their predecessor, the OnePlus Buds Pro 2, which costed €179. The upcoming buds are also expected to drop the “Pro” moniker, as per teased images shared by the company.
Leaked information suggests that the OnePlus Buds 3 will come equipped with Google Fast Pair and will feature a 10.4mm woofer coupled with a 6mm tweeter. Additionally, the buds are rumored to have 48dB noise cancellation support, 3D surround sound, LHDC 5.0, and a battery life of up to 44 hours. These specs, along with the promise of flagship-level sound, make the OnePlus Buds 3 a notable option for €99.
The global launch of the Buds 3 is expected to take place on January 24, along with the release of the OnePlus 12R in other regions, including India and Europe. The Buds 3 are anticipated to come in Space Gray and Clear Sea Blue colors to complement the OnePlus 12R/OnePlus Ace 3’s color options.
Overall, the OnePlus Buds 3 are shaping up to be a competitive and affordable choice for consumers looking for high-quality wireless earbuds. It remains to be seen whether there will be a “Pro” variant of the Buds 3 available in Chinese or global markets, but for now, the €99 price tag is certainly enticing.
