An led indicator is on the front. Opening the lid you can notice that the earbuds are placed inside specially carved grooves in a similar fashion like Mobvoi. It has an oblong shape that houses with a large flat circular back panel with a CD like pattern that is also touch-sensitive.
The speaker housing looks identical to the bullets wireless 2 except the long stack that sticks out at the bottom hours the battery, antenna and other electronics. Overall the one plus z are very well designed and build. They also have IP55 water and dust resistance, which make them safe during light rain or sweaty workout.
