OnePlus Wireless Bullets Z Review:
Design & Build Quality of OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z:
The collar build quality of OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z In-Ear Bluetooth Earphones With Mic is strong and flexible. But if we look at the wire they are a little bit fragile.
This time instead of metal finishes they come up with a Rubber material along with a matte finish.
However, the build quality are great and strong. The module has also a matte fishing touch.
At the right of the module nothing is given. At the left side all most are given along with a OnePlus branding plus LED light and the charging port.
In the wire it attached the control button. The joint module need to be well built. Because, in most case this is the place that needs to repair.
However, in this Bullets Wireless Z is well build and protected. As well as the magnetic snap are strong enough, and it won’t snap even while jogging or running.
Even though it is equipped with a IP55, it’s only a Water Resistant and a Sweat Proof. So you need to give a little extra care about this.
Even the charging port does not have any cover. If a splash of water mistakenly enter, it could damage the earphones.
Connectivity & Controls:
The OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z equipped with latest technology of Bluetooth 5.0(QCC3024 Chipset). Because of this makes more easy to connect.
However, for connecting to any available devices you need to detach them it will automatically turn on. And then search in your available devices in under Bluetooth section.
Reconnecting is even more easy, If the Bluetooth in your devices is turn if your detached the earbuds it will automatically connect to it.
Along with this it also have a features of Quick Switch. Which means that switching between two devices makes more easy.
You just need to press the button and then you are set to go. Regarding the connectivity range is 10 M or 33 Feet.
1. Quick Switch: To use this quick switch function you need to press and hold for a sec.
3. Skip Track: You need to double click the Volume Plus button.
5. Previous Track: By Triple press you can go back to the previous track.
5. Phone Calls: You can pickup and disconnect calls.
6. Voice Assistant: By long pressing the multi function button it will lead to Google Voice Assistant/Siri/Amazon Alexa.
Battery of OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z:
As it is claims by by the company, that if it is charge for 10 minutes it could last upto 10 Hours of battery life.
However, it is some what true. By charging at 10 percent of battery percentage for 10 minutes, it juice upto 95 percent. And it last upto 9 Hours of Playback.
This OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z In-Ear Bluetooth Earphone with Mic is really good in terms of battery.
As per claim made by the company that it could last upto 20 Hours for a single full charge. However, like other earphones this one also could not last upto that point.
But it can give you enough playback time of a maximum of 19 Hours.
The Bullets Wireless Z in-ear Bluetooth Earphone come with a USB Type- C support with a fast charging.
This is place where i would like to give a plus point. Moving on, to fully charge it can take upto 1 Hours with a fast charger.
You can even charge with a normal charger, but to get fully charge it will take more time. As in compare to the fast charging support charger.
To know whether is charging or fully charge. You will get the indication which lie in left Module.
However, if it is a charging mode it will blink in Red. When it is fully juice up it will turn into White.
Audio or Sound Quality of OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z:
Before we go deep into lets have a look at What really are Low, Mid and High?
- Low- It means the Bass or the Depth Vocal.
- Mids- Generally means the vocal part.
- Highs- It Generally means the Treble.
As we compare to lower price Wireless Earphones they are equipped with a bigger driver like 10 mm.
However, this Bullets Wireless Z is only equipped with a 9.2 mm drivers. This would be the part that needs a little improvement.
However, keeping aside this, the performance of the sound quality is near perfection. The Lows, Mids and the Highs are well balanced.
Indeed, the mids are excellent, and the vocal are crisp and clear. Even the musical instrument are well balanced. Regarding the High are excellent as well.
But, if you’re a bass lover this will literally disappoint you. Because you won’t get any Deep or Punchy Bass. It is only available the normal bass.
Even at the high volume, the sound are clear thought. Like any other Wireless Earphones at highest volume percentage, it distort the sound.
So, I personally recommend you not to listen at above 70%. Because, in the long that can damage ears.
Call & Mic Quality:
The quality of Mic as well as Call is seems works well. However, the main drawback is that the absence of any noise cancellation features. But worry not, even without this features it get the job done.
Before that you need to make sure what are the Silicone tips for you(means size perfectly fit for you in your ear canal). So, that you could get well sound proof.
However, even if you are in noiseless environment if you make a call, the other end person could hear you sound perfectly and you as well.
But if you are in a noisy environment. The other person could hear the background noises. It doesn’t mean that it will not hear you voices properly, it will.
What About The Latency Mode?
So, what really is Latency?
The delay before a new transfer of info commences following a great instruction for their transfer.
Now we know the meaning of Latency, so, let have a look at Does it really works?
The straight forward is No.
Because, if you are owning any Android devices which are not from OnePlus it will work.
However, if you own the devices from OnePlus from version 5 it will works. But, there is still delay on it. Means the latency does not work fully.
Comfort & Fit:
Are you worried about the comfort and fit? So, stop worrying, it will surely give you a comfort and fit that you are looking. The plastic soft silicon tips wouldn’t give any pain even wearing for a long time.
Pros & Cons:
- Very Lightweight Design
- Gives Comfort Even Wearing For A Long Period.
- Well Build and Premium Material.
- The Joint Are Properly Reinforced.
- Good Battery Life.
- USB Type-C Along With Dash Charge Support.
- The Plastic Drivers Makes Cheap.
- No Noise Cancellation.
If you are worried to buy this or not? Stop worrying just go and say a strong YES! This OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z can be a wet dream of any audiophile for a budget.
This is literally a features pack come with great style, comfortable and fit. So, if you are looking for a budget best wireless earphone under ₹ 2,000. This is the perfect recommendation for you.
But if you are a bass lovers this could not fit your needs make you disappoint. But if you are looking for a well perfect balance sound this is it.
