In terms of functional configuration, it is equipped with a new unit, adopts the new Enco Live tuning, supports Bluetooth 5.2, AI call noise cancelling, double-click remote control to take pictures, and has a 24-hour comprehensive battery life.
Recently, we got the OPPO Enco Air2 product and had an in-depth experience with it. After having a more comprehensive understanding of the OPPO Enco Air2, we will share the experience of using the OPPO Enco Air2 with our friends.
Black and white contrast color packaging, simple and high-end sense
The front of the box of OPPO Enco Air2 shows the rendering of the product in a large area. On the left side of the box is the name of the “OPPO ENCO” true wireless earphones product line. The “Air2” product model number is printed on the lower right corner of the box.
OPPO Enco Air2 is packaged with a black bottom case, bottom case information: translucent jelly top cover, 13.4mm composite titanium-plated diaphragm speaker, 3.5g ultra-light and non-sensing headphones, 2 kinds of Enco Live stereo sound effects, up to 24 hours of music battery life , Bluetooth 5.2 low-latency dual transmission.
The product name is OPPO Enco Air2 true wireless earphones. AAC/SBC bluetooth decoding, bluetooth effective distance 10m, frequency response range 20Hz~20kHz.
Translucent jelly cover charging case
The OPPO Enco Air 2 charging case continues the original translucent jelly cover design of the previous generation, with a small and light size and a rounded feel. The body of the charging case is made of matte material, and the cover is matte texture. The earphones in the charging case can be vaguely seen through the box cover, and you can know whether the earphones are in the charging case without opening the cover, reducing loss and avoiding the embarrassment of going out with the charging case.
The OPPO Enco Air2 charging case has the OPPO brand logo on the hinge opening and closing on the back, and the combination of gray and white brings a stronger visual effect to the user.
The Type-C charging interface is designed at the bottom of the charging case, which does not affect the overall aesthetics of the charging case.
After actual measurement, the weight of the OPPO Enco Air2 charging case is about 39.9g, which is very light in the hand, and feels lighter than an egg.
Open the charging case, the product S/N code is printed above the hinge of the charging case. Next, we will take out the earphones and evaluate the appearance and wearing of the earphones.
Classic in-ear design, cloud-like soft wearing experience
OPPO Enco Air 2 earbuds have been upgraded in audio effects, equipped with a 13.4mm composite titanium-plated diaphragm, which doubles the sound energy released by the previous generation. The structure is designed with a unique bass conduit to increase the volume of the sound cavity and achieve a better bass effect. In addition, the OPPO Blu-ray acoustic tuner has preset two sound effects of pulse bass and melodious vocals for it to enhance the personalized audio experience.
In appearance, earphones still use a handle-shaped semi-in-ear design. The ergonomic design that fits different ear types provides a comfortable and non-sensing wearing experience.
The noise-cancelling microphone pickup hole on the top of the earphone handle collects ambient sound for noise cancelling during calls.
There is a pressure relief hole near the filter of the headphone head, which has the function of tuning.
The earphone filter is equipped with a dust-proof net to prevent foreign objects from entering the earphone sound cavity.
This time, the OPPO Enco Air2 true wireless earbuds also has a concave surface on the touch area on the back of the earphone handle to indicate the touch area and improve the accuracy of users in blind operations.
There is an L/R logo on the inside of the earphone handle, which is used to distinguish the left and right earphone.
There are two metal contacts at the bottom of the earphone handle for charging. There is a call pickup hole in the middle of the charging metal contact, which is used to provide pickup function for calls.
After actual measurement, the weight of a single earphone of OPPO Enco Air2 is only 3.5g.
Long time wear not tired, the sound is tuneful
After seeing the appearance of the OPPO Enco Air2 true wireless earphones, let’s experience this earphone together.
After wearing the earphones, you can clearly feel that OPPO Enco Air2 brings us a comfortable and non-sensing wearing experience. After wearing it for several hours, the ear canal did not feel any pain or sagging.
Looking at the OPPO Enco Air2 up close, you can see that the earphones fit the ears very well.
Next, let us connect the earbuds to the mobile phone, and find “OPPO Enco Air2” in the bluetooth list to connect the earphones to the mobile phone.
In terms of interaction in actual use, OPPO Enco Air 2 supports open the box and pair devices automatically and quick connection in pop-up mode. It adopts touch operation, supports multiple modes of double-click, triple-click, and long-press, supports wake-up voice assistant, double-click remote control to take pictures, and can be customized and adjusted through HeyMelody APP.
Through HeyMelody APP, we can also realize earphone tuning and mode conversion. The OPPO Blu-ray acoustic tuner presets two options for the Enco Air 2: “pulse bass” and “melodious vocals”. Among them, the pulse bass can make the bass deeper and more shocking, and the melodious human voice can make the voice more delicate and full.
Next, let us select music on the mobile phone for the audition session of the headphones.
OPPO Enco Air2 earphones use a 13.4 mm composite titanium-plated metal diaphragm dynamic unit, which releases twice the sound energy compared to OPPO Enco Air. The bass is shocking, and the mids and highs are clear and transparent.
In actual listening, we found that in the factory mode of OPPO Enco Air2, the listening experience is three-frequency balanced, and the tuning direction is biased towards the neutral, unlike some headphones that are aggressively tuned in order to highlight a certain feature. Balanced tuning can make the ears more comfortable when listening to songs, and can better feel the details in the music.
In actual listening, the singer is full of emotion. The singer’s voice narrated slowly and in detail at the beginning of the singing, telling us the emotional story of the past. When the song reaches its climax, all the foreshadowing in front of it erupts in an instant, and we can feel the long-suppressed emotional outburst in the singer’s voice, which resonates emotionally. At the end of the song, we can use the details of the sound presented by the headphones, sigh softly, and feel the helplessness expressed by the singer but relieved.
Of course, OPPO Enco Air2 true wireless earphones are not perfect. In the pure original sound mode, the listening experience of the human voice is slightly thin, so that the user will feel that something is missing when listening to the human voice. But this shortcoming is well solved by the melodious vocal mode, and I have to admire the powerful ability of the acoustic tuner. Likewise, the low frequencies in normal mode are just right, and don’t extend as deep. If users want to enjoy the bass, they can turn on the pulse bass mode, and then they can get a low frequency experience with extremely deep extension and rich overtones.
Not only the sound is refreshing, OPPO Enco Air 2 has passed the German Rheinland high-performance low-latency certification. It supports Bluetooth 5.2 low-latency dual transmission technology, supports game mode, and the full-link latency is as low as 94ms, achieving a better gaming experience. When using “Game For Peace” to experience the game, I can clearly feel that the sound of footsteps and gunshots are conveyed very quickly, and there is no longer any asynchrony between audio and video.
OPPO Enco Air2 supports AI in-depth call noise cancelling function, uses artificial intelligence algorithm to simulate the human binaural hearing system, intelligently extracts human voice, filters ambient noise, and provides clear voice call effect. We have tested the noise cancelling function of the call, and the earphones can still suppress the external noise very well and make clear calls even when there is a speaker playing and speaking in the background.
Super battery life, enjoy listening to the sound
In terms of battery life, the OPPO Enco Air 2 uses a Type-C charging interface and has a built-in 27mAh (headphone)/440mAh (charging case) battery. A single battery life of 4 hours when fully charged, and the overall battery life of the charging case can reach 24 hours.
OPPO Enco Air2 continues the classic design of OPPO Enco Air in appearance, with a smaller and lighter size, and a new touch area indicator. In terms of functional configuration, it is equipped with a new unit, adopts the new Enco Live tuning, supports Bluetooth 5.2, AI call noise cancelling, double-click remote control to take pictures, and has a 24-hour comprehensive battery life.
In actual use, the OPPO Enco Air2 true wireless earphones can get a good interactive experience through the HeyMelody APP. In terms of wearing experience, the earphone weighs only 3.5g. It adopts a handle-shaped semi-in-ear design and adds an ergonomic design, which fits the human ear and is not tired after wearing it for a long time.
In the audition of pop music, OPPO Enco Air 2 can well show the singer’s emotion when singing and express the “tension” of the singer’s singing. The details of the vocals are carefully processed, allowing users to hear more song details. The vocals in the original factory settings are slightly thin, but they have full performance and better listening quality under the careful adjustment of the acoustic tuner. The headphones have a good extension in the high frequency part. The low-frequency part of the earphone is also improved by the tuning of the tuner, and the overtones are full, which can make people involuntarily follow the rhythm of the sound.
In terms of calls, OPPO, as a mobile phone manufacturer, is more handy in call sound processing. OPPO Enco Air 2 uses artificial intelligence algorithms to simulate the human binaural hearing system, intelligently extracts human voices, filters ambient noise, and provides clear voice calls.
At the same time, the high latency problem of TWS headsets when playing games in the past has also been greatly improved with the game mode and Bluetooth 5.2 specially developed for OPPO Enco Air2, basically achieving audio and video synchronization.
To sum up, the OPPO Enco Air2 true wireless headset is an excellent inheritor of its first-generation headphones. On the basis of retaining the excellent appearance, the sound performance is better, providing users with more cost-effective choices.
