OnePlus Buds Z Review Rundown
The $50 Buds Z are solid true wireless earphones for bass lovers with a OnePlus phone. They deliver a bass-forward sound signature that will satisfy anyone looking for a little extra low-frequency push. By default, double-tapping either bud skips ahead to the next track, but you can customize this feature on OnePlus 6 phones or higher to play/pause, return to the previous track, or activate the voice assistant.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

At $49.99, the true wireless OnePlus Buds Z are $10 less than the standard Buds. They use removable eartips instead of buds, and are rated for five hours of power. The controls on the earpieces are sensitive to touch and adjustable to a degree, but only on OnePlus phones.

The OnePlus Buds Z Truly Wireless are comfortable, well-built in-ears designed to have a bass-heavy sound profile. They have different sizes of silicone tips, so you're able to get a comfortable fit for your needs. By default, double-tapping either bud skips ahead to the next track, but you can customize this feature on OnePlus 6 phones or higher to play/pause, return to the previous track, or activate the voice assistant.
Reviewers from Techadvisor have found the following[***]:
The Buds Z look an awful lot like the original Buds - which is mostly to say that they look quite a lot like Apple's AirPods. Importantly, they use silicone tips for your inner ear. This not only makes them substantially more comfortable than the first-gen Buds, but also helps them block out a lot more external noise. They also have an IP55 rating, which means they should be able to survive some rainfall or sweat, making these a solid budget exercise option.
