Oppo Enco Free wireless headphones have been launched in India alongside the debut of the Reno 3 Pro smartphone. Oppo Enco Free appears to have Apple’s AirPods as the inspiration and is touted to provide ultra-dynamic speakers. The Oppo Enco Free price in India is set at Rs. 7,999. The Enco Free true wireless headphones will be available for purchase through Amazon and Flipkart starting Wednesday, March 4. Moreover, 1,000 select customers pre-ordering the Oppo Reno 3 Pro smartphone will get the Enco Free headphones for free.
The new OPPO Enco Free enters the market with a familiar-looking AirPod design. It looks quite typical of any other AirPods-style cradle, but the OPPO Enco Free has a few aesthetic variations of its own. The OPPO logo and the cradle’s battery indicator is placed at the front, whereby the pairing button is placed at the right side. Honestly, there’s nothing much that can be done on a pair of wireless earphone’s cradle. There’s also a USB-C port at the bottom for charging.
It’s great to see companies are making the change to USB-C nowadays. Open up the cradle and the battery indicator LED at the cradle instantly lights up. That’s good. The pods themselves are as mentioned before clearly by Apple’s AirPods. But once again, OPPO implemented their own ideas on it.
The pods are shorter and have a thicker stem. It also has this streak of silver color which OPPO says it has “a striking aural glow”. This is actually quite functional as the streak of silver color is indicating where the touch-sensitive panels are located. These pods also have swappable silicone ear tips. It’s a mixture of AirPods style of earphones with in-ear earbuds. It can’t provide the seal-like in-ear earbuds but has slightly better noise isolation compared to the AirPod and its copycats.
It’s pretty similar to the Apple AirPods. It does have a proximity sensor to automatically play/pause when the pods are worn/taken out. It also has a touch panel and here’s another unique twist OPPO has put in the Enco Free. The streak of silver on each pod is actually touch-sensitive. Yes, the entire streak is touch-sensitive, that’s why we can perform these actions on the OPPO Enco Free.
1 Double-press either side to play/pause
2 Slide up/down on the left side to increase/decrease volume
3 Slide up/down on the right side to go next/previous track
The Oppo Enco Free comes with 13.4mm ultra-dynamic speakers that are packed with dual magnetic circuits and an FPC lever. The headphones also have a magnalium-titanium composite diaphragm. Further, there is artificial intelligence (AI) backed uplink noise cancellation technology that works during phone calls. There are dual microphones with a beam-forming capability to reduce ambient noise.
Hence It doesn’t respond to the double-press gestures most of the time. And whenever I tried to use the touch panel, the pod needs to touch my face so that it wouldn’t fall off. There’s no “gaming mode” on the OPPO Enco Free, which is good since OPPO knows that there is audio delay and it is just unsuitable for games most of the time. Good job for not deceiving your customers.
OPPO used to have another subsidiary called OPPO Digital that was focused on audio and video equipment. I think some of those technologies made its way to the Enco Free as it is the best sounding pods-style of earphones I’ve tried so far. In terms of bass – I wasn’t expecting anything much since it doesn’t have a seal around my ear canal. But the Enco Free did a great job in creating bass pounds that I can actually hear, while not being overpowered at the same time. The vocals and mids on the OPPO Enco Free are distinct, and they sound amazing. Using the Enco Free, I was able to hear more than I am supposed. I can discern a badly-mixed track compared to those done properly.
It’s quite difficult for us to run through the battery. For each complete charge, the pods manage to last about 5 hours with about 70% volume. And that is just significantly longer than other pod-style earphones that I’ve tried. The cradle can also charge the pods for 4 more times. which means we can get beyond 20 hours of total listening time.
