Oppo Enco Buds 2 Design

The Oppo Enco buds 2 look drastically different from their predecessors. The peculiar oblong look of the original Enco buds have been replaced by a conventional stem design and the charging case is now circular. It's small enough to fit into most pockets, and is surrounded by a glossy black strip that provides a nice contrast to the plastic matte finish. The buds are also very lightweight - each earbud tips the scale at just 4 grams.

Oppo Enco Buds 2 Touch Controls

The Enco Buds 2 get touch sensitive areas on both earbuds and the controls work really well. By default, it's double tap to play the next track or answer a call and triple tap to play the previous track. There are even volume controls here, something that many brands skip out on - just hold down the left bud to decrease volume and hold down the right one to increase it.

Oppo Enco Buds 2 Connectivity

Connectivity is through Bluetooth 5.2 for both Android and iOS devices, and I always got a stable connection on the OnePlus 10 Pro and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4. Oppo phones come with native support for the Enco Buds 2, and therefore don't require a dedicated app. Those with non-OPPO phones , however, will have to download and install the Hey Melody app to take full advantage of all the features these earbuds have to offer.

Oppo Enco Buds 2 Sound Quality

The Oppo Enco Buds 2 sounds surprisingly good for a set of earbuds in this price range. They feature10 mm titanised drivers that focus on bass , so genres like pop and hip hop just ooze with energy. At max volume, these earbuds can also get very loud, but there's hardly any audio distortion.

Though the buds lack any sort of noise cancellation, there is AI noise cancellation for calls, and it did a respectable job of filtering out ambient sounds.

Oppo Enco Buds 2 Battery

Battery life is pretty solid as the buds deliver up to seven hours of continuous battery life, and the case has enough juice to get you to 28 hours of total listening time.

Your mileage will vary depending on the volume level you choose but 50 percent is a good mark, especially considering how loud these get.

Verdict

Good sound, commendable set of features , solid battery life, and an affordable price — the Oppo Enco Buds 2 delivers on all these fronts and more.

It would have been nice to see Active noise cancellation here, something the Realme Buds Q2 offers for only 200 Rupees more. But if you don't care about something like that, then these earbuds are a great choice to consider, especially if you are on a very tight budget.
