The OnePlus Buds Z is another great pair of truly wireless earphones under ₹5,000. They have an in-ear canal design with a stem and their case is compact. The case feels a bit better than the Soundcore Life Note, but still not as good as some of the premium true wireless earphone cases. The earbuds fit well and they even feature automatic wear detection, which means when you remove the earbuds from your ears, they automatically pause the music (or any media that was playing).
These earphones feature Bluetooth 5.0 with AAC, but they lack aptX. However, they make up for it through Dolby Atmos audio compatibility. Other features include USB Type-C charging, fast charging, and IP55 certification for dust and water splash resistance. There’s no smartphone app to customize controls or tune the equalizer settings. You’ll have to use a third-party app called HeyMelody for those features.
