    It supports SBC, AAC, LHDC (source: official website). All the other phones which don't support LHDC simply can't use it.

    Hey there @Leo Lei, at the outset let me take this opportunity to congratulate the entire OnePlus Buds Pro team on this terrific product. I always believe in believing in the product after going through reviews. And I have to say the reviews that are coming online are living upto the expectation. This is really a positive part.

    My question to you is why did the team decide to go with Squeeze functionality instead of tap one? I feel the squeeze may get triggered accidentally sometimes when you try and hold the bud stem.

    Thanks in advance for answering.

    Hi @Leo Lei , the OnePlus buds pro look incredible. And looking at the early reviews they are quite promising. What made you guys to chose the dual tone design rather than the single design that other wireless buds use.

    Hello @Elyn Lu. Thanks for the AMA on Oneplus Buds Pro.

    First of all congratulations on the launch of one of the greatest devices in the Oneplus portfolio.
    A lot of positive feedback all around. 👍

    My question to @Leo Lei is :

    What design aspects your team went through to ensure the Buds pro can be accommodated in such a small case that too with a bigger battery🔋. What are the major challenges you have faced during the design stage?
    Why the case was an IPX4 instead of an IP55 ?( most accidental damage is due to the case left inside the pocket before washing).

    Support for Google fast pair: Can we expect it in future?

    Just one question based on early review - While the overall impression is very good about Buds Pro, the reviews are not so great about the calling voice quality and some audio samples in the reviews actually shows the audio recording samples are not upto the mark. Are you going to bring in some firmware update to get this fixed and improve to satisfaction level.

    Thank you!

    First of all congratulations on the successful launch of the most awaited audio product OnePlus Buds Pro.

    Question: Will the OnePlus Audio ID settings get saved on the OnePlus Buds Pro onboard memory, or are they dependent on the device on which it has been configured? Also, will it affect the audio experience if connected to a laptop/desktop?

    Hey @Leo Lei ! First of all thank you creating probably my favorite OnePlus product ever (after the 7 Pro)!

    My question is: Other than Dual Connection (which XDA already confirmed), could you share if there are any other features under development for the Buds Pro that'll be pushed via a firmware update in the future? (e.g EQ Settings, Volume Control, and Customizable sound for Zen Mode Air)

    Also just curious... why do the Glossy White Ear Buds have a matte finish? 🙈

    Customer care on Amazon mentioned that Buds Pro isn't compatible with devices with Bluetooth version under 5.2. So oneplus 5t won't be compatible. Is this true?

    Yep. Although they aren't touch. It's more like you have to pinch or squeeze them between your thumb and index finger.

    Oh !! I am too late to ask. All the tech enthusiast have already asked what I was willing to.
    So @Leo Lei
    When you are giving me a free buds Pro (Matte Black)?? 😜

    Jokes apart

    Just wanna ask that you and your team have tried full body of Buds Pro in Matte Black colour (In place of the shiny silvery end) or have planned to launch with that (full Matte Black coloured Body) in future ?
