    Received my new Buds z... Before promised date... But the charging case does not retain charge for more than 1 hour or so. Charge drops to 1% even without charging the buds fully.

    Have been trying call the support numbers but even after half hour of wait I am not connected to any person to discuss.

    I have raised an RMA on the website but haven't heard back from them either.

    Tried that too. Very inconsistent charge holding. And I haven't gotten any response from OnePlus either.

    UPDATE: Took the buds to the OnePlus service centre. Ater the entire day of testing / checking, they have confirmed that the product I received is faulty.
    They will replace it. Not sure by when as they don't have it in stock (understandably).
    🤞

    I raised a replacement request on the OnePlus website (through the purchase order page) but I didn't hear back from them. Under service request it showed that I had to send the buds back to them. It was not clear so I decided to take it to them.
    It was a very very long wait at the service station (@Ahmedabad). Nearly an hour and a half. Given the health concerns it was not the best situation to be in.

    UPDATE: Hadn't heard back from the service centre people regarding when I could possibly get an replacement. Called them up this evening and was told that they have raised the issue in their system and once they have an update they will let me know.

    The buds have more functions than buds z.
    Buds z feel more secure in the ear with the silicon tips.
    Both of them don't have volume control built into them and so that is a big big drawback. If you connect them to a TV or firestick then there is no way of reducing the volume. Also there is no Google assistant / Siri. 😒
    In similar price range there are other products available.

    Bro, does the remove earbuds to stop music works only with the right earbud and not the left for you?

    There is a proximity sensor on top of the buds (looks like a pin hole). Check if it is blocked or covered by some dust or dirt. It might be causing the malfunction function.

    Tried cleaning it. Still the left earbud removing doesn't cause the music to pause.
