    The name OnePlus is now synonymous with premium smartphones. But they also make a bunch of high quality accessories (cases, bags, earphones) which don't really get the attention they deserve. Last year, they launched the Bullets wireless, lauded for premium design & sound, long battery life and USB Type C fast charging.

    Bullets Wireless 2 have a familiar design (including the clever magnetic switch) but better sound and better battery life. They charge using Type C too. In fact, if you use the OnePlus Dash/Warp charger and cable, you can get 10 hours of battery life with just a 10 minute charge. Total battery life on a full charge is about 14 hours.

    These new ones are larger too and for good reason. Inside each earbud is a 10mm dynamic driver and a pair of Knowles balanced armature driver. Knowles, founded in 1946, specialises in advanced micro acoustics. Their products are also used in space missions. So Neil Armstrong's voice from the moon during the 1969 Apollo 11 mission? Yup - captured on Knowles powered equipment. Long story short, OnePlus has upped the game when it comes to quality components - hence the increase in price from Rs 3,999 to Rs 5,999.

    They sound great with all kinds of music, with crisp clean sound and tight bass. They include support for aptX HD. They will work with iPhone too but without the aptX support, you won't get the best audio quality.

    You can use them for calls and there is a responsive in-line remote. The box includes three sets of silicon tips, a red silicone travel case and a short Type C cable. Even at Rs 5,990, this is still good value for a pair of wireless, balanced triple driver earphones.

    If you have a OnePlus phone, you get the advantage of Quick Pair functionality - just separate the earbuds and the phone will prompt you to connect (supported on OnePlus 5/5T/6/6T/7/7 Pro). If last year's experience is anything to go by, Bullets Wireless 1 sold out after a few sale cycles and never came back. Get these while they're still around!
