Back in March, OnePlus launched a Lite version of its Buds Pro in China. These have today landed in Europe too, although under a different name: OnePlus Buds Pro 2R. They are the same exact thing, though, aside from the name – oh, and only the white version seems to be available for some reason.
There’s an introductory offer if you act fast, but there’s a caveat which you should read on to find out. So, in Europe you can get the Buds Pro 2R for just €129, down €20 from the normal price of €149. To get the lower price, you just need to pre-order a pair until September 25 at 11: 00 CEST from OnePlus’ official store.
That seems like a great deal, but here’s the thing. The non-R, non-Lite OnePlus Buds Pro 2 are currently offered for €125.30. That makes them cheaper, and they also have wireless charging and head tracking support, unlike the Buds Pro 2R. Otherwise, they’re identical, so if you can still grab the Pro 2 earbuds for €125.30, we’d say definitely go for those. On the other hand, if the price goes up, then maybe the Buds Pro 2R are a good choice for you if you don’t care for wireless charging and head tracking.
If you’re interested in either pair, make sure you read our review of the OnePlus Buds Pro 2. Everything we said about them applies to the Buds Pro 2R, aside from the wireless charging and head tracking of course.
