Noise reduction: personalized noise reduction technology, welcoming the era of customized noise reduction
Noise reduction is a main feature of OPPO Enco Free2, and it is not stingy in configuration. The use of two noise-reducing microphones of feed-forward + feed-back, combined with a built-in three-core noise reduction chip, and a personalized noise reduction algorithm, makes the noise reduction depth of this headset reach 42dB, which belongs to the current TWS reduction in the data. The highest level of noise in headphones.
From the actual experience, the extreme configuration also brings better noise reduction effect. After turning on the noise reduction, the steady-state noise control of the low and medium frequencies can be said to be played to the extreme. In commuting places such as buses and subways, the roar of transportation is greatly eliminated, while in the office, all you can feel is the faint conversation of “quiet” and colleagues.
This time OPPO also applied a new technology on OPPO Enco Free2——personalized noise reduction. Different from adaptive noise reduction technology that intelligently adjusts the noise reduction effect according to environmental changes, personalized noise reduction is to intelligently optimize the noise reduction curve according to the user’s ear canal structure and the state of wearing it, so as to help users obtain the best noise reduction effect.
OPPO Enco Free2 also supports transparent mode, you can easily get information about the surrounding outside world without taking off the headset. And the experience has been greatly improved. After turning it on, the external environment sound is greatly restored, and even when the headset is taken off in the transparent mode, the change is not obvious. With a comfortable wearing effect, the presence of headphones is even ignored in the transparent mode.
In terms of call function, OPPO Enco Free2 uses a three-microphone call noise reduction solution. The left and right ears 6 can work together with microphones, which can effectively enhance the human voice to reduce environmental noise and achieve a clear call effect.
In terms of wind noise resistance, the microphone located in the ear can effectively improve the sound reception in wind noise and strong noise environments. Compared with the previous generation OPPO Enco X, the anti-wind noise duct has been optimized to further improve the anti-wind noise ability, effectively reducing the impact of wind noise when the noise reduction mode is turned on in a high wind environment, and improving the user experience.
Music: Personalized listening + Dynaudio tuning
For the hearing loss and sensitivity decline caused by the age of the human ear, OPPO has equipped OPPO Enco Free2 with personalized hearing technology. Through the three-minute listening test, the user’s listening sensitivity is obtained, and the algorithm is used to calculate and compensate, and the audio curve is customized privately to provide a clearer and more immersive music experience.
OPPO cooperated with Dynaudio for the first time on OPPO Enco X in 2020, and the Hi-Fi-level sound quality jointly tuned has been greatly recognized by users. This time, OPPO Enco Free2 is also combined with Dynaudio tuning to provide highly restored sound quality performance.
OPPO Enco Free2 true wireless noise reduction headphones are configured with a 10mm dynamic driver and support AAC audio codec. In terms of the effect of the noise reduction function on the sound quality, a noise reduction processor combined with a sound quality compensation algorithm is used to compensate for the sound quality damage caused by the noise reduction to the greatest extent.
In terms of sound effects, OPPO Enco Free2 presets four modes: classic, dynamic bass, clear vocals and bright and transparent, which can be set according to personal preferences. It also supports Dolby Atmos, which can intelligently match three different modes of theater, games, and music according to the functions used by the user.
In the music mode, there are three styles of balanced, gentle and delicate for users to choose personally. For audiophiles, you can also customize the frequency response curve through the graphic equalizer to meet the needs of different groups of people for sound quality.
HeyMelody APP: Open all platforms, extend more functions
OPPO Enco Free2 true wireless noise reduction headphones also support the headphone fit detection function, which can help users achieve the best wearing state, thereby assisting other functions such as noise reduction and music to achieve the best results.
