Design, Build & Comfort
The OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z are designed to appear like any other set of neckband earbuds. The ear tips and neckband are connected by the same tiny wire. The silicone neckband is very soft and flexible. Despite being composed of plastic, the bottom housing has a smooth surface and is almost comparable to Bullets Wireless Z Bass Edition.
The headgear comes to a conclusion in two bulky chambers with wires protruding from their ends. The OnePlus logo is the only thing on the right chamber. The three multifunction buttons, a microphone, an LED indicator, and a Type-C charging connector are all located in the right chamber. Despite the fact that the charging port is not covered by a flap, the neckband has an IP55 certification. So you don’t have to be concerned about perspiration, dust, or light rain.
The buds are likewise composed of plastic and have a trendy appearance. The earbuds include a magnetic backside that snaps together when not in use, as well as an auto on/off function seen in just a few Bluetooth headphones in this price range. So, to halt the music, just snap the buds together, and to restart, simply detach them. This option is also applicable to current calls.
Coming to comfort, I am quite happy with the overall comfort offered by Bullets Wireless Z2 by OnePlus. The headset is made of plastic only. So, it’s very obvious the weight is minimal (26.65g) and comfortable to use for a long time.
The comfort of this neckband is mostly due to the inclined ear canal and soft silicone ear tips. The earbuds fit wonderfully in my ears during testing and do not readily fall out, even while I am jogging on the treadmill. So, at this price bracket, this is one of the most comfy neckband earphones I’ve ever tested.
Overall, the build quality and finish of the headset are very good and definitely worth the price of Rs.1999. The Bullets Wireless Z2 by OnePlus can easily be put at the top 2 wireless neckbands under 2000 Rs.
Connectivity & Microphone
The Bullets Wireless Z2 by OnePlus supports Bluetooth 5.0 is the latest version of Bluetooth., along with Oneplus own fast pair technology. I tested this neckband and it paired with my Oneplus 10 and iPhone 12 very quickly. So, don’t worry about the paring and Connectivity range. There is no dual pairing support, so you can only connect to one device at a time.
The Z2’s microphone performance is likewise excellent. It captures sounds quite cleanly and with superb tone when used inside. The AI Noice canceling performs a fantastic job of suppressing ambient noise in busy outdoor conditions. I’m satisfied with the microphone’s overall performance.
According to my tests, it has an acceptable latency performance, which is what we anticipate from Bluetooth Earphones that use the AAC and SBC codecs. The delay was scarcely noticed when viewing movies or listening to music. However, the latency was plainly evident when playing the games. So, if you’re a serious gamer, wired earphones are the way to go.
Life of the Batteries
The Bullets Wireless Z2 by OnePlus has exceptional Life of the Batteries. It has a 200 mAH battery, and the company promises up to 30h of playback time with 50% volume. During my three days of testing, I got over 25 hours of Life of the Batteries with 50 to 60% volume.
It takes less than half an hour to charge the Bullets Wireless Z2 from zero to 100 percent. It also enables quick charging, which offers up to 20 hours of playing in only 10 minutes of charging.
Coming to the Aesthetic Appeal, the Bullets Wireless Z2 by OnePlus offers fairly good audio quality with a good amount of bass, thanks to large 12.4mm drives that are tuned for bass. The overall audio tuning is quite similar to the previous Oneplus Z bass addition, with natural vocal and treble with high bass response.
The huge speakers provide a considerable benefit in terms of total loudness; even at 60 percent volume, the headset is remarkably loud. As a result, you only needed to increase the volume to 100% on rare occasions. The good news is that the audio does not distort even at maximum volume.
When it comes to the finer points, the Bullets Z2’s bass response is excellent. The response in the upper and mid-bass ranges from very high to very punchy. So, if you like bass, you will undoubtedly enjoy the Z2. Another plus is that the powerful bass does not overwhelm the other frequencies. Yes, it has some functionality, but not as much as other wireless earbuds in this price range.
At medium level, the bass is bearable, and it creates a really dynamic atmosphere. When we speak about excessive loudness, the high bass does give you a tired feeling.
Aside from that, the voice and treble notes are also excellent, with plenty of detail. They sound really genuine and provide a pleasant experience in general. The soundstage is likewise rather large, and all sorts of instruments are readily distinguishable.
Personally, I really like the Aesthetic Appeal of the Bullets Wireless Z2 by OnePlus. Even when compared to the other two really great Bluetooth earphones out there right now — the Realme Buds Wireless 2, Enco M32, and boAt Rockerz 225 the Oneplus Z2 can easily hold their own.
All things considered, the Bullets Wireless Z2 by OnePlus are honestly a pretty amazing pair of neckband earphones in their price range, with comfortable design and good Aesthetic Appeal. It’s a good upgrade to the predecessor that offers better bass-driven audio. Yes, we all expected the ANC, app support, and Hi-Res audio support, but our wish was not completed.
