Today, OnePlus Bullets Wireless Earphones went on sale in India for the first time. The earphones, priced at Rs. 3,990 (approximately $59), went on sale through Amazon India and OnePlus Online Store at 12:00 PM.
However, it seems that the sale lasted for a few seconds only as the website started showing ‘Out of Stock’ message when users tried purchasing the earphones at around 12:00 PM. However, the company has not yet revealed how many units were put on sale.
The OnePlus Bullets Wireless Earphones were announced in India last week but were originally launched in May along with the company’s flagship smartphone OnePlus 6. The Bullets Wireless earphones are an upgrade to the OnePlus Bullets V2 earphones.
It features a 9.2mm drivers and includes the company’s Energy Tube, composed of a non-metallic mineral and silica gel which helps in reducing frequency distraction and enables noise cancellation to some extent. It has a weather-resistant design to protect it from rain showers but OnePlus has not specified the IP certification.
The earphones come with support for Bluetooth 4.1 as well as Qualcomm aptX. It also comes with magnetic switches that pause the music when the earbuds are clipped together and resumes the music when unsnapping the earbuds.
Similarly, when disconnected from the handset after five minutes of inactivity, the earphones will turn off automatically to save the battery life. With long-pressing the Play button, it triggers Google Assistant, enabling users to interact with the phone through voice commands.
Interestingly, OnePlus has also equipped the Bullets Wireless earphones with fast charging technology, which according to the company, can provide five hours of continuous audio playback with just 10 minutes of charging.
The fast charging technology works with every kind of USB Type-C cable and there’s need for a specific charger for this to work. OnePlus has also said that it will add a new feature which will allow answering calls by unclipping the earbuds in the future.
