Oppo Enco Buds Launching in India on September 8, Company Claims 24 Hours Playback

The Oppo Enco Buds is tipped to launch with algorithm driven in-call noise reduction to improve voice, and is an entry level offering.


The Oppo Enco Buds are tipped to become the latest pair of true wireless earbuds to launch in India, at a virtual unveiling and price announcement of the product on September 8. The earbuds have already been revealed in terms of the design, and the company has also officially confirmed that the true wireless pair is set to be an entry level offering. As a result, it may rival true wireless earbuds offered from its sibling brands such as Realme and OnePlus in the most affordable price segment, with rival brand Xiaomi in its crosshairs as well.

Not a lot has been revealed in terms of its audio specifications, barring the usual marketing led jargon promising “crystal clear and concert like audio”. That doesn’t tell us much about the drivers powering the Oppo Enco Buds, but if the Enco W51, also from Oppo, was anything to go by, it may be an interesting proposition to say the least. The only two hooks revealed by the company are a battery rating of 24 hours for the Enco Buds, and its in-call noise reduction algorithm.

On its global page, the Oppo Enco Buds specifications reveal 8mm dynamic drivers, which is in line with what’s expected of budget, mainstream earbuds. It has the standard, aural range in terms of frequency response, and is rated to offer 100.6dB audio sensitivity. It gets Bluetooth 5.2, which the company has stated will facilitate a ‘Low Latency Mode’ designed to appease gamers, and seamless pairing too as soon as the charging case is opened. The Enco Buds also feature IP54 dust and water resistance rating, to appeal to fitness aficionados.

In terms of battery life, the Oppo Enco Buds will reportedly offer six hours of playback via the earbuds, and a cumulative total of 24 hours of playback via the charging case. This suggests that the case will be capable of delivering three full charge cycles for the earbuds. Charging both the earbuds and the charging case together through the USB-C port on the case will take up to 2.5 hours. Oppo has also promised “Intelligent Call Noise Reduction” as a key feature, which remains to be tested in the real world.

Pricing and availability announcements are expected later this week, when the Enco Buds are launched on September 8.
