Audio Quality, Noise Cancellation & Connectivity

Let it be on record that both wireless earbuds offer great sound quality. However, there are some key details to pay attention to. First, when it comes to Active Noice Cancellation, the Nothing Ear 2 has an edge. OnePlus Buds Pro 2 does support ANC, but it’s weaker compared to Nothing Ear 2.

And lastly, the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 has an edge because of the Spatial Audio support. My experience so far has shown the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 to be better wireless earbuds. Except for the weak noise cancellation it possesses.
