OnePlus Buds Z are finally coming. The company has confirmed that the “new world of sound” is coming with a teaser image Twitter, which, more or less, suggests Buds Z. There is also a link that lands at the OnePlus 8T launch event site, which means Buds Z could see the light on October 14th.
The image shows an in-ear silicone tip, which suggests a different design that Buds Z might have. The OnePlus Buds have a pretty ordinary open-ear plastic design, but the Buds Z will likely be fine for a snug fit while ensuring the at the same time passive noise cancellation, thanks to the earphones. This difference between Buds and Buds Z looks like the difference between Apple AirPods and AirPods Pro.
A whole new world of sound. Coming soon.

There has only been so much information available on the OnePlus Buds Z. We’re not sure there will be active noise cancellation on these earbuds, but presumably there won’t be. According to rumors, OnePlus Buds Z will be a budget version of the Buds, which aims to remove one or the other feature to align with the price. Plus, if we take it right, the silicone earbuds will compensate for the lack of ANC by taking advantage of environmental isolation by providing a seal.
According to an earlier leak shared by Ishan Agarwal Twitter, OnePlus plans to launch up to five products at the October 14 event OnePlus 8T Pro is not one of them. The OnePlus 8T is certainly in the process of launching, but the rest could include the Buds Z wireless earbuds, a OnePlus smartwatch that has been in the rumor and a OnePlus power bank. For people wondering why the OnePlus 8T Pro met that kind of fate, you can read what OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has to say here.
