Last month, OnePlus made the Nord Buds official as its cheapest pair of TWS buds ever. They were initially launched in India starting at INR 3,000, which is approximately $38 at the current exchange rates.
Today the company has revealed that the Nord Buds are coming to North America. They will be available in both the US and Canada in mid-June. An exact release date hasn’t been given at this time, but we do have the pricing. The Nord Buds will go for just $39 in the US, and CAD 49 in Canada. That is cheap indeed, and practically zero markup compared to the Indian price – not something we’re used to seeing very often.
The Nord Buds come with 12.4mm titanium-coated dynamic drivers, 2 mics per earbud, IP55 rating for water and dust resistance, and they support SBC and AAC codecs. Battery life is 7 hours for audio playback, and 3.5 hours for phone calls. Combined audio playback time when including the case’s battery reaches 30 hours. The case charges via USB-C.
