OnePlus Buds are now available in Gray in the U.S.
When the OnePlus Buds launched in the U.S., they were only available in a glossy white color. Now, OnePlus has opened up sales for a version in gray, giving consumers a sleek, stealthy option for the back to school season.
The OnePlus Buds in gray come with a case to match and also feature a red accent around the chrome touchpad, a nice attention to detail. Whereas the OnePlus Buds in white look a little too much like Apple’s AirPods, the version in gray is uniquely its own. The beautiful Nord Blue color option is not available in the U.S., though.
We reviewed the OnePlus Buds last month, praising their sound, design, and affordable price. The earbuds also feature support for Google’s latest Fast Pair features, which makes pairing the OnePlus Buds quick and easy with an Android device.
If you decide to pick up the OnePlus Buds in gray, you won’t have to pay a premium; the wireless earbuds are available for just $79. The OnePlus Buds are thus more affordable than the more premium wireless earbuds on the market, including the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live and Apple AirPods Pro, but they lack some features like Active Noise Cancellation and wireless charging. The app also only supports OnePlus phones, so you won’t be able to update the firmware or remap the double-tap gestures if you pair them with a smartphone from another manufacturer. They’re otherwise a great option if you own or plan to own a OnePlus device.
