With so many earbuds available in the market it is very difficult for a common man to choose the perfect earbuds as per their need. Today in this blog post we will review the newly launched OnePlus Buds 3 TWS.

Unboxing - Inside the Box

OnePlus Buds 3 TWS box comes with the following items:

  1. Warranty Card

  2. User Manual

  3. Type C cable

Design and Build Quality

OnePlus Buds 3 comes in a compact case with a design similar to that of the OnePlus Buds 2 case. The case comes with a glossy finish with OnePlus branding on the top, a single light indicator on the front side, a charging port on the back side, and a reset button which you can see once you open the lid. The build quality of the case is pretty impressive, and you can easily carry the earbuds with you.

The earbuds are properly secured inside the case with the help of strong magnets and they do not fall off easily from the case. The design of the earbuds is also similar to the OnePlus Buds 2 earbuds, with stem-shaped earbuds and a complete chrome finish. The earbuds provide a secure and comfortable fit in the ear.

These earbuds come with an IP55 water and dust-resistant feature, which protects your earbuds from splashes of water and rain, making sure you can easily use the earbuds during workouts and exercise.

These OnePlus earbuds come with the latest Bluetooth version 5.3 which provides a long-lasting and secure connection. Also, it comes with Instant Wake and Pair (IWP) Technology and Google fast pairing support which allows you to establish an instant connection with the last paired device when you open the lid. A good feature of these earbuds is it comes with Dual Device Pairing which allows you to connect the earbuds to two devices at the same time.

Battery Life

Considering the price point of the earbuds, the battery life could have been enhanced. It comes with 6 to 8 hours of playback time on a single charge, and a total of approximately 24 hours using the charging case. Also, it comes with Fast charging support which gives 6 to 7 hours of playback time by charging the earbuds for 10 minutes. The playback time of the earbuds depends on the usage of ANC mode and other features.

Touch Control

OnePlus TWS comes with full touch controls starting from music play / pause to the previous / next track, a voice assistant for entering / exiting the Game mode, and much more. The touch controls can be adjusted according to your comfort from the application support. A good feature of these earbuds which is rarely found is the touch gesture control.

ANC Mode

The Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) mode of the earbuds works pretty well with 49 dB noise cancellation. Even when the music is turned off, it cancels about 85% of the background noise. It also comes with an adaptive ANC feature which adjusts the ANC mode as per the environmental condition.

Gaming Test

OnePlus Buds 3 TWS comes with 94 ms latency gaming mode, which is pretty high considering the price of the earbuds. We tried a gaming test in the earbuds and we can say that the overall gaming experience like in-audio experience, stereo separation and volume is pretty good if you are using a OnePlus phone. If you are using other smartphones then you might feel slight latency in the earbuds.

Mr. LazyTech Pro Tip - We recommend you turn on the SBC codec for a better gaming experience. We tried SBC and AAC both, on multiple earbuds, and SBC mode enhances the entire gaming experience.

Sound Output

OnePlus Buds 3 TWS comes with some amazing features when it comes to audio output. It comes with a dual driver setup of 10.4 mm and 6 mm, along with SBC / AAC and LHDC (Low Latency High Definition Audio) Codec support. If you are a hardcore music lover then you are gonna love this earbud as it comes with clear sound output, amazing detailing in the music, superb volume, pretty good trebles, and vocals. As it comes with a pretty loud music experience, you will see sound leakage issues on increasing the volume above 70%.

The bass of the earbuds is pretty decent. Though it comes with pretty decent bass effects and a bit of depth, the surrounding sound effects were found missing.

Call Experience

The earbuds come with 6 Microphone setups with an Environmental Noise Cancellation (ENX) feature. The calling experience of the earbuds is pretty good with clear audio and loudness in both indoor and outdoor conditions. Even in outdoor conditions, it puts focus on the speaker with above 85% clarity in audio.
