OnePlus is getting back into the audio game with the Bullets Wireless

The world’s attention might be focussed on the new OnePlus 6, but that’s not the only new piece of kit the budget manufacturer is launching today. 

Alongside the new handset, the company is also announcing the OnePlus Bullets Wireless, a Bluetooth-enabled version of its existing Bullets in-ear headphones.

The headline feature here is a seriously quick charging speed. OnePlus promises that you’ll be able to get five hours of use out of the headphones with just ten minutes of charging. Continue charging the headphones after ten minutes and you’ll eventually reach eight hours of total playtime.

Charging is also handled via a USB-C port, which many other headphone manufacturers have still failed to adopt as a standard.

Outside of its battery life, the Bullets Wireless include many of the standard features we’ve come to expect from wireless in-ear headphones. Magnetically clipping them together will automatically pause the music, and they’ll go into standby mode after five minutes of inactivity. There’s also Google Assistant integration here which is accessible by long-pressing the central button, and AptX support for better audio quality with compatible devices.

With these being a wireless pair of headphones, the price is a little higher than OnePlus’ previous wired headphones at £69, but if the sound quality is good enough these could end up being the perfect accompaniment to your new handset. The new earphones will be available at the end of June.
