Here’s one more reason to watch the OnePlus 8T reveal on October 14 – OnePlus is teasing a new headset. The image below appears to be an artistic photograph of a rubber tip for in-ear headphones.
Last month leakster Max J teased the OnePlus Buds Z and that name was also spotted in an OxygenOS 11 beta code. However, the current OnePlus Buds are all plastic and only the Bullets Wireless have rubber tips.
A whole new world of sound. Coming soon.

That’s not a rule, of course, some TWS headsets have tips and others do not. For example Apple’s AirPods are all plastic while the AirPods Pro do have rubber tips. Tips create a tighter fit, which helps keep noise out. Also, usually you get several sizes of tips in the retail package, which allows you to adjust how they fit in your ears.
