As seen by Android Police, a growing number of users report on OnePlus forums that your left earphone will be disconnected randomly. Currently, it is not clear why this occurs, but users note that their left earbud will mute while their right earbud will continue to work.
Some users say that simply unplugging or resetting their Buds, or restarting the connected phone’s Bluetooth seems to fix the problem; however, that doesn’t work for everyone.
One user said that OnePlus support indicates that it is a hardware defect. If this is true, users will need to change their hardware rather than wait for a software update. While some users have already changed their wearable, it seems that their new Buds have this problem as well.
OnePlus has yet to officially comment on the concern. Also, it is unclear if this issue affects all OnePlus Buds or if it also affects OnePlus Buds Z.
