1/5

Oppo Enco Air 2 Design: AirPods lookalike!

Launched at Rs 2,499, Oppo Enco Air2 earbuds look a lot like Apple AirPods, not that I am complaining! The half in-ear design and longer stems look good on the outside. These earbuds are light, just 3.5 gm, and the case looks unique with an opaque cap. Something that I would recommend over OnePlus Nord Buds and Realme Buds Q2s' cheap material case. They are available in White and Blue colour options. Oppo Enco Air2 also come with an IPX4 rating for water resistance, which is quite impressive at this price point.

2/5

Oppo Enco Air 2 Comfort: Not for heavy users

One glaring omission that I could not overlook was the silicone eartips. While these buds did sit nicely in the ear canals, but I do not find it quite uncomfortable, since I tend to use TWS earbuds for long hours. After more than one hour of continuous use, my ears actually started to hurt. But this is not a dealbreaker as it differs from person to person depending on their daily usage.

3/5

Oppo Enco Air 2 Performance: Average

The Oppo Enco Air 2 come with features like fast pairing that actually performed well and was quick to find devices and pair with them. These earbuds come with 13.4mm titanized diaphragm drivers, that performed well, as they offered good bass and vocals. However, it might change if these buds do not fit your ears properly.   The earbuds connect with HeyMelody app that allows users to see the battery levels of the eartips and case. Users can also tweak a few sound effects from the app like Bass Boost, Original Sound, Clear Vocals. The touch controls of the buds were also quite responsive. I could control my playlist, volume and take calls from the earbuds. However, while taking calls, at a public place, the listener could not hear my voice properly and described it as muffled.  Overall, the earbuds offer fairly decent performance, if you are not looking for an ANC feature. 

4/5

Oppo Enco Air2 Battery: Long-lasting

Oppo assures that the earbuds offer battery back up of 24 hours, with the case obviously. The earbuds lasted for almost 3.5 hours with continuous usage and volume set at 80 percent. Notably, the case does not support fast charging so it took almost 1.5 hour to fill up a dead battery. 

5/5

Oppo Enco Air 2 verdict

At Rs 1,999 (on Flipkart), Oppo Enco Air 2 is a good deal for those who want to use AirPods lookalikes and ANC is not their priority. Notably, as mentioned before, these earbuds are not very comfortable when it comes to heavy usage. Oppo Enco Air2 earbuds compete with Realme Buds Q2s (Rs 1,999), OnePlus Nord Buds (Rs 2,799) and the DIZO Buds Z Pro (Rs 2,999). These earbuds offer ANC, transparent mode and feature silicone tips, making your listening experience better.
