ONEPLUS NORD BUDS CE In Kenya
ONEPLUS NORD BUDS CE like other OnePlus true wireless earphones, the Nord Buds CE uses the HeyMelody app to enable customization of the earphones, but only on non-OnePlus smartphones. If you have a OnePlus smartphone, the functionality is embedded into the phone’s Bluetooth settings, and doesn’t need an app. The Nord Buds CE are only supported by the HeyMelody app on Android though; iOS users don’t get app support.
I used the earphones with a OnePlus smartphone, which allowed me to use OnePlus Fast Pair to quickly pair and link the earphones to my smartphone. I then had to go into the Bluetooth menu for the earphones and tap ‘Earbud functions’ to reach the detailed settings for the Nord Buds CE.
Performance and battery life
It’s sound quality is quite heavily influenced by the fit. Even the slightest change in the way you put the earphones into your ears can considerably change the sound; this is common on all earphones with this fit, but feels particularly pronounced on the Nord Buds CE. However, over the course of my review, I found the right fit for a good combination of comfort and sound quality.
Support for the SBC and AAC codecs meant that the Nord Buds CE were equally at ease with iOS and Android devices, although for my review I primarily used a OnePlus smartphone as the source device to ensure easy access to the customisation features. The earphones were fairly loud, and despite the lack of proper noise isolation, even a volume level of around 60 percent was more than enough for indoor listening.
