UPDATE: According to David Ruddock of Android Police, the OnePlus Bullet Wireless aren’t Google Assistant-optimized headphones like the Bose QC 35 II. Instead, it appears that they feature more simple Google Assistant integration like most other wireless headphones.
ORIGINAL: Alongside its flagship OnePlus 6 smartphone, OnePlus today introduced its first pair of wireless headphones.
The OnePlus Bullets Wireless are wireless earbuds connected by a cord. The two earbuds can be magnetically connected, and when you do so, they’ll turn off. When used with a OnePlus , 5T, or 6, clipping them together will also pause your music. Pull them apart and they’ll turn back on and begin playing your audio where you left off or answer a phone call.
The headphones have an aluminum casing, stretch-resistant cables, and a liquid silicone coating to protect against rain and sweat. There are interchangeable tips and fins to help you get a perfect fit.
When it comes to sound quality, the Bullets Wireless offer Qualcomm aptX audio and “energy tubes”. OnePlus says that these energy tubes will “minimize the reverberation of frequencies, stabilizing sounds as they pass through, ensuring the earphones produce a clear output at all times.”
Another notable feature of the OnePlus Bullets Wireless is the Google Assistant. With the Google Assistant built in, you can long-press the center button on the headphones’ in-line controls to ask anything.
The OnePlus Bullets Wireless offer eight hours of listening on a full charge, but if you’re in a hurry, OnePlus says that you can get five hours of battery life from a 10 minute charge. The headphones charge using a USB-C cable.
OnePlus will begin selling its Bullets Wireless headphones on June 5 for £69 / $69 / €69.
