Many phones these days are doing away with the 3.5mm headset jack to save space. Whilst the OnePlus 6 is not one of them (it has one at the bottom), it has not stopped the company thinking to the future.
The ‘OnePlus Bullets Wireless’ headset is a Bluetooth stereo headset that allows anyone with a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone a chance to use and appreciate the beautiful design and impressive battery life.
The OnePlus company motto is ‘Never Settle’ and they have decided to take a shot at the headset market to give consumers a premium headset that not only looks great, but also doesn’t cost a fortune either.
Battery life is one reason some people are a bit anxious to move away from their trusty wired headset into the world of wireless. Thankfully OnePlus have great knowledge and understanding of this area and the Bullets can get 5 hours of use in just a 10 minute charge!
If you are someone who has made the move to wireless and have the issue of forgetting to switch the headset off once disconnected from your phone, no need to worry, this one is different as once the headset is disconnected from a device, it automatically turns off after 5 minutes of not being used.
With built in support for using the Google Assistant too, this headset not only looks good, but has great features that many people will be excited to use for themselves.
With all the technology used and the premium design you may expect to pay £100+ to get one of these, however OnePlus plan to sell these in June for just £69 on OnePlus.com
We are hoping to get hands on with the Bullets Wireless and see how good they are for a review shortly.
Versatile with great audio, introducing OnePlus Bullets Wireless
OnePlus fast charge, intuitive design, and water resistant for everyday use
16 May, London. With outstanding audio quality, OnePlus has returned to audio accessories with bluetooth earphones – Bullets Wireless – stylish and lightweight, keeping people connected when it’s needed. Bullets Wireless have an intuitive experience, seamlessly pausing and resuming music when the earbuds are magnetically clipped together, while OnePlus fast charge gives five hours of continuous audio from just 10 minutes of charging.
“We created our first Bullets Wireless prototype two years ago, but we waited to fully develop them until the technology was available to deliver the best experience to our users,” said OnePlus founder and CEO Pete Lau. “With great audio range, OnePlus fast charge, and weather resistance, Bullets Wireless are the perfect companion.
Five hours of continuous audio from 10 mins of charging
There’s nothing worse than wireless earphones running out of power, leaving people disconnected and frustrated. OnePlus fast charge gives five hours of continuous playback from just 10 minutes of charging, and Bullets Wireless have an eight-hour battery life overall. Whether it’s racing to get ready for the day, or getting ready for a run, Bullets Wireless are designed to match the pace of life – OnePlus fast charge is again one of the fastest in the industry.
With Bullets Wireless, OnePlus fast charge is fully embedded in the device – no need to use a OnePlus fast charge power brick or cable – any international standard USB-C cable can be used with Bullets Wireless. And when disconnected from your phone, Bullets Wireless will automatically switch off after five minutes of inactivity, preserving battery for when it’s needed.
Lightweight and stylish, Bullets Wireless are milled from aluminum for a comfortable weight to wear all day. The earbuds magnetically snap together to prevent tangles, and when used with a OnePlus 5/5T or 6, clipping them together will automatically pause music. Unclipping them will then resume the music, exactly from where it was left. A future update means users will also be able to answer calls by unclipping the earbuds.
Comfortable and durable, Bullets Wireless feature stretch resistant cables and a combination of the industrial design and liquid silicone coating means they’re weather resistant for everyday use. So even
when the rain pours, the music flows. Bullets Wireless come with interchangeable earbud tips and fins for the perfect fit.
Whatever help needed is only ever a button away, with Google Assistant integration. Long-press the button in the center of the in-line controls of Bullet Wireless, and ask Google Assistant for anything.
Outstanding sound quality
Using Qualcomm aptX combined with powerful hardware, Bullets Wireless are tuned to deliver the best possible audio experience. Having set a high standard with the critically acclaimed Bullets V2, OnePlus took those insights to build Bullets Wireless.
Whether it’s listening to music, taking a call, or getting the most from Google Assistant – for high-quality audio across a wide range of frequencies, OnePlus combined a large moving coil driver unit of 9.2 mm with Energy Tubes.
Price and availability
As with Bullets V2, Bullets Wireless punch well above their weight, available for just £69 / $69 / €69. Bullets Wireless will be available by the end of June on OnePlus.com.
