Thanks. Could you explain bit more on this bit? Reviews say each bud cannot be used as a standalone device. How's the fit and sound quality?

I tried and got 10% off Oneplus 8. Anyone have 50% coupon for earbuds?

I am no audiophile, but personally I love the sound quality on these.
As for using just one bud, I first paired them as per manual, after which they worked well as a stereo set. When I saw the post about not being able to use just one, I left one of them in the charging box and put the other one on. It connected to my phone right away (they connect to BT when you take them out) and I was able to play music from YouTube without issues. That's about as far as I tested.

I just received mine today. The sound quality is very decent, and I am surprised how well the sound isolation works. They blocked out my wife's voice (not on purpose this time).

I find the fit okay. Coming from Jabra 65T that has a gel tip, this is a change. Definitely doesn't feel as secure, but it does fit secure. It doesn't feel as comfortable after wearing for 2-3 hours for work call but only felt fatigue after 2+ hours for me.

They also work as standalone, which the feature alone makes it worth it for me to use over my 65T.

One feature that's missing from my Jabra 65T is "hear through". It'll proactively pipe the sound into your headphones for safety if you set it in the app. The OnePlus buds does have a good balance between ambient sound and sound isolation but I'd like to hear more if I am walking on the streets.

I guess the one plus day deal is gone?
Also if one do not have one plus phone , other than you cannot update the firmware can you still connect the Bluetooth?

Good news for anyone who pulled the trigger on these without a OnePlus phone.. an app is coming for people with other Android phones. https://www.theverge.com/2020/9/18/2144 ... oid-phones
Nobody cares which exploitative corporations you give your money to every month. Capitalism is a plague on this planet. Get that crap out of your signature.

The question is, which one did you take out? Did you repeat the test on the other piece?

I've been hoping for a restock of the black version, but it looks like that color was only just released in North America a few weeks ago and quickly went out of stock. If you're sitting on a 50% off coupon, I'd probably pull the trigger on the whites now instead.
