You must skip these
When OnePlus announced Nord Buds a few months ago, it offered Dolby Atmos at one of the most affordable prices on the market. We reviewed the TWS headphones and were surprised by their performance and build quality. But for Rs 2,299 at launch, the OnePlus Nord Buds CE will be overshadowed by its bigger brother. Especially if you consider that Rs 500 more will get you to support a surround sound experience on select smartphones.
