    Here is my entry-

    It was the launch day & my nimble fingers were ready to click 'Proceed to Buy'. 48 hours later, they are very much pleased to feel the ritzy chrome stalk with matte texture of Oneplus Buds Pro.

    The first thing that you see as soon as you unbox is the tactile matte case which opens like a treasure trunk. (I swear my face lit up and beam of light shone through as I opened the case just like in those treasure hunt movies :hearteyes:)

    The case is water resistant which is a welcome addition and should be an industry standard going forward. They are somewhat scratch resistant and will likely endure rough use, in other words they are Cat-Resistant. My kitty is definitely not happy.:cryingcat:


    Speaking of Perfect Match, it bodes well with my Timex Mariner watch and my high-performance 10th Gen i7 Lenovo ThinkPad that I use for work.


    My first TWS was the original Oneplus buds and with the Pro edition I can assure you that my audio experience has been highly elevated. To experience what a rich and mellifluous audio feels like, I recommend watching Director Chloé Zhao Eternals Trailer from Dolby. If you got an immersive full screen like my Oneplus 7T Pro, then it's Dolby Cinematic Experience at its best :wink:

    Being in IT project with WFH setup, I do have to speak and attend meetings and thus I am glad that these Pros now help me focus better in spite of the construction noise and chatter outside, all thanks to superb ANC tech embedded smartly. After a hectic day, these Pros help me relax and sleep by including soothing white noise of Zen Mode Air.

    Thank you Oneplus for hearing to the community feedback. You heard me and now I truly #HearTheUnheard.

    The Unusual Pro’s

    THe Unsual Pros.gif

    So this happens to be the most unusual pair of Pro’s that i could afford.

    Latest Pro's Unboxing:

    Unboxing Pro.gif

    Been associated with OnePlus before there debut in sound accessories. The reason I bought these earbuds is because @Starcommander had recommended them (hahahah, may be yes.) but because of the quality sound they produce, ANC and Matte Black with shinny bottoms. I have been waiting for these since the launch of OnePlus 9 Series. And now I can say that they were worth the wait. To be honest, I didn't tried any of the Apple AirPods, so not comparing them with those but yes I had all the previous versions of OnePlus Wireless Bullets and Buds and these are the best version of all. Though dual connection is not yet out but I am looking forward to it to use on my recently bought iPhone 12 Pro and 2014 manufactured MacBook Pro (hope it works).


    As for the initial connection and after installing Hey Melody, the process was pretty quick with no hassles.

    The First song I played on my OnePlus Buds Pro was Firestone - Kygo. The notes, the strokes, the vocals were crystal clear and from that moment I finally found my Buds. From the hard tips of Buds to the bulky case of Buds Z I settled for the sleek Buds Pro.

    The 2nd song was Dynamite - Taio Cruz. The bass was accurate & upto the mark and when on ANC its like the song is playing inside your mind and you feel like just to relax on the couch and enjoy the music.

    Pro's N Con's:
    Very much comfortable on ears (using Medium ear tips).
    Connectivity range is good.
    The buds case is good in size and weight.
    The 3 modes are a good enhancement to use the ability of the buds.
    Got my buds pro yesterday so haven’t kept them on charging yet.
    The app is somewhat buggy on iOS but i hope improvements will come in future updates.
    Mic is glitchy sometimes on Bike (with helmet on head).
    The magnetic pull up mechanism on the case for buds is not that strong.

    Hey @dsmonteiro! Thank you hosting such an interesting contest :).

    I got my hands on the Glossy White ones! The not so famously sought ones ;). They look classy to me though :cool:. Haven't gotten much usage time with them yet but so far I can say that the noise cancellation is 👌👌. The audio is indeed crystal clear as advertised. I am deeply excited to use them more in days and months to come.

    Unboxing experience for OnePlus products is always cool and satisfying! The packaging is :hearteyes::hearteyes:. However, I was wondering what was happening with the picture section on the box. Frankly speaking, it could be improved further :neutral:. Overall, its a great mouth watering red and white cake 🍰🍰 ready to be devoured!


    A huge thank you and congratulations to the OnePlus team 👏👏! The first impressions are outstanding and promising. Still getting used to the pinching/pressing gestures :sweatsmile:. I guess need a bit more practicing and I should be good to go :).

    Thank you for viewing this post :).

    So, here is my „unboxing“-story @dsmonteiro :) It could be a kind of everyday life ;)

    The day starts well with a round of running 🏃‍♂️ : the music matches thematically Run Boy Run - Woodkid 🎶
    Btw: The Matte Black is a perfect match for my running shoes 😎

    After I had my fun outside and Enya was a bit offended that I was outside without her, now it's her turn 😊. During the dog walk 🦮 I can still talk on the phone or just listen to music 🎵:)
    You know: Who Let The Dogs Out - Baha Men ;)

    Finally, at the end of the day I can then relax with a glass of red wine 🍷 and a podcast or likewise music, and let the day end :)
    Summer Wine - Ville Valo & Natalia Avelon
    BTW: Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is one of my favorite wines, we had this red wine at our wedding :)

    hope you enjoyed this „unboxing“-story:)
    Cheers everyone:) ☕️ 🤗

    Looking forward to your anti-creative, "OnePlus buds pro"-less entry.

    Maybe a video of you opening a can of Pringles while rapping? :rolleyes:

    E-Mail: no, there are enough apps in PlayStore, like Gmail or Outlook
    Fm radio app: well, there is no FM chip. You can’t use a fm radio app.
