Deal | OnePlus announces a discount on its first-gen Buds, which are also back in gray
OnePlus' first-ever TWS earbuds were AirPod clones, but did come with a gray variant at least. They have been out of stock in many countries for some time, however. The OEM has now revealed that they are back in its store now, however, and that they are US$20 off their regular price right now.
OnePlus launched its first-ever TWS earbuds with the Nord mid-ranger in July 2020. Essentially, they have the same form-factor as Apple's AirPods, although their extra metallic accents were particularly well set off in their gray SKUs. Unfortunately, this option went out of stock quickly.
Their supplies have recently been replenished, however, and the OEM is celebrating this event with a new sale on both colors of Bud. They are 25% off at present, or $59 in the US as opposed to their normal $79. Buyers may also get them with free priority shipping for a limited time (which the company has not deigned to outline further).
With their 13.4mm dynamic drivers, Dolby Atmos support and case rated to deliver charge for up to 30 hours of playback, the Buds may remain a decent option in the TWS arena. On the other hand, they lack active noise cancellation (ANC) and have special features that may be contingent on pairing with a OnePlus phone.
Meanwhile, their newer, IP55-rated and more affordable counterparts the Buds Z still await their release. They will be priced at $49.99 when they go live in November 2020.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
