- Oppo has launched its new pair of truly wireless earbuds.
- They are called the Oppo Enco Buds and cost less than Rs 2,500.
- Oppo Enco Buds come with a battery life of 24 hours with charging case.
Oppo Enco Buds are finally out. There were rumours that the Chinese company is working on its next pair of affordable truly wireless earbuds that it may launch soon, but we never knew it would happen too soon. But here we are. The new Oppo Enco Buds essentially replace the Enco W11 earbuds that the company launched last year. They were a decent pair of TWS earbuds with good battery life. Oppo has retained all of that but added some more. The Enco Buds look refreshing and come with a promise of 24-hour battery life.
The Oppo Enco Buds have an oval design, and it looks very identical to that of the Samsung Galaxy Buds. While the charging case looks small, the earbuds have a pod-like in-ear design. You get silicone ear tips on the earbuds, which is good because the earbuds will ensure noise isolation. Since the earbuds are entry-level and that is why you do not have active noise cancellation on these earbuds. Let us talk about what you get on the Enco Buds, but before that the price.
Oppo Enco Buds price
The price for the new Oppo Enco Buds truly wireless earbuds is not officially available yet. However, a report by 91Mobiles suggests the Enco Buds cost THB 999, which translates to roughly Rs 2,400. This is much higher than the cost of the Oppo Enco W11 earbuds that are selling for Rs 1,699 in India right now. The Oppo Enco Buds come in Blue and White colours. There is no word on when the Enco Buds will arrive in India, but I think these will.
Oppo Enco Buds specifications
The Oppo Enco Buds come with 8mm dynamic drivers that are supposed to bring bass to your music. There will likely be different presets in the equaliser settings for the earbuds available via the HeyMelody app. On Oppo phones, these settings are available in the listing inside the Bluetooth menu. The Oppo Enco Buds supports Bluetooth 5.2. The company claims that each earbud gets connected to the phone individually, so it is possible that you see two entries in the Bluetooth's Add Device list. Oppo claims the Enco Buds have a frequency range of 20Hz to 20kHz, and they support AAC and SBC codecs. It would have been nicer to see support for LDAC, but you cannot expect much for this price. The Enco Buds also come with a game mode that reduces latency to 80ms with triple taps on the earbud. You can customise gestures in the app or Bluetooth settings.
For better call experience, Oppo says it has used intelligent call noise cancellation that uses a deep neural network-based algorithm. The Oppo Enco Buds come with a 40mAh battery each on the earbud and a 400mAh battery inside the charging case, which gives a total life of 24 hours. For charging, you will have to plug the Enco Buds for about two hours. There is a USB-C port for that. And the Oppo Enco Buds are water and dust resistant with IP54 certification.
