Key Takeaways

  • Motorola launched the Moto Buds and Moto Buds+.
  • Buds+ offers Bose-tuned sound, head tracking, and Dolby Atmos.
  • All models have active noise cancellation and hi-res audio.

Motorola has launched a collection of Moto Buds wireless earbuds alongside its Edge 50 series smartphones.

The Moto Buds (pictured at right) and Moto Buds+ (left) are both value-focused products, although the Buds+ offers some premium features for the money.

The Moto Buds+ include Bose’s audio tuning and Dolby Head Tracking technology when paired with recent Atmos-powered Motorola smartphones, such as the Edge 50 Ultra and Edge 50 Pro. They also pack active noise cancellation (ANC) and hi-res audio.

The standard buds omit Bose tuning, Dolby Atmos, and head tracking but still have ANC and hi-res audio.

The headlining earbuds deliver a long eight hours of listening, while the case provides an impressive 38 hours worth of playback power. Charging the buds for 10 minutes can provide up to three hours of sound. You can also expect wireless charging and workout-friendly water resistance.

The basic Moto Buds offer nine hours of battery power, with a 10-minute charge providing two hours of playback. Water resistance is also present in the standard edition, which is available in four colorways compared to two options for the Buds+.

The Moto Buds+ are priced at $130 (£105) and are available now in North America as well as markets across Asia, Europe, Latin America, and Oceania. Priced at $61 (£49), the entry earphones will be available in the “coming weeks.”
