    I was so ready to order the OnePlus Buds when it comes out, but this review on mic and phone call quality changes my mind:

    Dear OnePlus, is there a way for you guys to improve phone call quality and noise cancelling via firmware or software update ? It sounds so bad. The 20$ pair of earbuds were even picking voice better than the OnePlus Buds.

    I'm so disappointed.

    Here's another one and it doesn't get better.

    As a long-term OnePlus user I really want to buy the Buds, but with a lot of phone calls and zoom meetings, I can't justify to buy these until call quality improves significantly.

    Wondering the same thing, definitely disappointed to hear the voice quality is bad and comparable to a $20 variant.

    unfortunately I can confirm... I ordered them without checking any review, received yesterday and after just one phonecall I can confirm that it is not as good as I hoped :/ Let's hope new version of firmware will make some improvements

    Sigh. I just made the same mistake. I hope they release an app to update the firmware and enable changing of the buttons.

    I'm having exactly the same. Tried a call connected to my OnePlus 8 Pro, my work iPhone 6 and my work laptop and had to switch from the buds immediately because no one could even hear that I was talking!! so disappointed. Does anyone know if a future software update could fix this or did I just get duped out of £80?

    Same here. Buds are good in audio quality but of no use for a business user like me for whom call quality is the flagship feature. Customer care says you should have tried the product. Interesting as no stores opened in lockdown. So buying is the only trying for customer right now. For a company that stresses so much on being a community, this is so hypocritical at so many different levels - make customer buy a product which they cant try, sell them a feature which is really not there, have a convenient no return policy. If this is a community, better to disown asap. Apple community, here I come.

    And yes, please stop calling yourself a community bhai log. Community means being honest, open and helping out. Better way to put this would be a patriarchal family with an abusive father. Thats more like it, Lol!

    Yes the voice picked up by the mic during a call is very faint and muffled sounding. Please fix this else these buds are no good.

    I bought them without a y hesitate but unfortunately they are bad. I threw away after couple of calls.
    I don't know why they released such product with such quality.

    I am supposed to get my buds any minute now, with all these bad reviews I really don't want them anymore. Can I return them if they are not opened?

    I ended up buying airpods Pro and use them with my OnePlus 6T . Noise cancelling and hear through features work perfectly fine with the OnePlus 6T (but you have to set it up on an iPhone first). The mic quality is the best and no Bluetooth earbuds or headphones can compare.

    I rather pay a little more and stop searching for wireless earbuds that have great sound and great mic quality. OnePlus took that long and couldn't deliver a pair of good wireless earbuds. That's pretty disappointing.

    The audio is perfect in Duo calls or app based calls but flawed in phone calls, can OnePlus provide an update soon to get rid of it?

    During a phone call using oneplus buds the person on the receiving side always report voice cracking issue and voice not clear same disappears once you switch to phone earpiece and back to buds. Oneplus should fix this bug.
    Also in addition to that still facing discomnection even even my phone is in the pocket.

    Catching up too much of noise in outside environment on Calls and recording.Its been so difficult to speak on calls.
    kindly fix this issue. said:
    i had an experience with other buds which has 2 mics and the call quality and recording vocals are far better than op buds though they have 2 mics. Even With 3 mics OP is not at all Good
