The OnePlus Buds Pro earphones were initially announced in Black and White colors. Today, following the launch of the OnePlus 10 Pro flagship, the TWS earbuds were introduced in a third color – Mithril. For those unfamiliar with Lord of the Rings Mithril is the shiny metal they used to make those shiny armors in Miidle Earth.
The new version has the same finish throughout, unlike the dual-tone Matte Black and White options. The rubber tip has a matching color.
The coating is made through NCVM (non-conductive vacuum metallization) technology, adding a distinctive metallic effect. There is also a fingerprint-resistant coating on the buds and the case while keeping all the touch functionalities.
Beyond the looks, OnePlus did not change anything – you get the same 11mm dynamic drivers on the inside and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity with SBC, AAC, LHDC v3 codec support.
The Mithril variant of the OnePlus Buds Pro was launched at a promo price of CNY699 ($110/€95), but it is now back at its official retail price of CNY799 ($125/€110) – exactly the same as the Black and White ones.
