Oppo has been on a launching spree in 2022. They have launched a flurry of smartphones and audio devices. Out of its audio range, we got our hands on the latest audio earplugs. If you are in the market looking for a wireless pair of earphones good for both music and gaming, then you need to read the rest of the Oppo Enco Air2 review below.
Oppo Enco Air2 review: Design
When it comes to design, Oppo has tried to do something new. Unlike the usual pillbox, every other wireless earphone comes in, Oppo Enco Air2 come in a half translucent (and half white) case. They call it Jelly case lid, which does add to the show. The case also has a single LED that indicates charging and BT connectivity. The USB Type-C charging port is located at the bottom, but you do not get a charging cable in the box.
When you pull the audio earplugs out, they do resemble the Apple Airpods. But they do come with an identity of their own. The charging points and the microphones can be seen at the bottom of each stem. These are also dressed in glossy white with each having touch-sensitive areas at the top of the stems. By double or triple tapping you can skip tracks, take or end calls, press and hold to increase or decrease volume. All in all, we found the design of the Oppo Enco Air2 to be nice.
Oppo Enco Air2 review: Performance
Coming the fun part of the review, its resonance. The Oppo Enco Air2 is built to give you superior audio output and it clearly shows. The TWS earphones have large 13.4 mm Titanised audio drivers in each earplug that gave us a superb sound experience. The bass is punchy, the vocals are clear, and the mids/lows are almost perfect. Highs could have been better, but are not a deal-breaker in the price bracket.
These are made for gaming as well. Supporting Bluetooth 5.2, Oppo Enco Air2 support low latency gaming. So we put it to the test and played BGMI and COD: Mobile. To our amazement, they work really well. The sound to shot audio was on point. We enjoyed the gaming experience with them. And we enjoyed the Netflix experience with them, even more. The sound is immersive. The game mode can be turned on with compatible smartphones by triple tapping the earphones.
Moving to the battery life, this is where one would want more. The company says, the Oppo Enco Air2 can last for 4 hours on a single charge, however, for us, they lasted for a little over 3.25 hours. But they charge quickly too and up to 24 hours of additional battery life can be extracted using the charging case.
BT work up to 10 meters and that is about right. The signal drops a little if you have a wall or two in between. We took them out for a jog in the park and only once, did one of them plonk out. Otherwise, they stayed put and we never felt that we have to be extra careful with them. Over that, the Oppo Enco Air2 are IPX4 certified. So, light splashed and sweat will not ruin them. Also at just 3.5 grams each, these audio earphones are aptly named as “Air” 2.
So, are they worth buying at Rs 1,999? That is a definite yes. If you are looking for something that can provide good sound or you can game with, then your search ends here. The battery life could have been better, just keep the case handy and you will be back up and listening to your fav tunes in no time.
