At a virtual unveiling and price announcement on September 8, the Oppo Enco Buds are expected to become the latest pair of truly wireless earbuds to launch in India. The design of the earbuds has already been revealed, and the company has also confirmed that the true wireless pair will be an entry-level offering. As a result, it may compete in the most affordable price segment with true wireless earbuds from its sibling brands, such as Realme and OnePlus, as well as rival brand Xiaomi.
In terms of audio specifications, not much has been revealed, aside from the usual marketing jargon promising “crystal clear and concert-like audio.” That doesn’t tell us much about the Oppo Enco Buds’ drivers, but if the Enco W51, another Oppo phone, is any indication, it could be an intriguing proposition. The company has only revealed two hooks: 24-hour battery life for the Enco Buds and an in-call noise reduction algorithm.
The Oppo Enco Buds specifications on their global page reveal 8mm dynamic drivers, which is typical of budget, mainstream earbuds. In terms of frequency response, it has the standard aural range and is rated at 100.6dB audio sensitivity. It has Bluetooth 5.2, which allows for a ‘Low Latency Mode’ designed to please gamers, as well as a seamless pairing as soon as the charging case is opened, according to the company. To appeal to fitness enthusiasts, the Enco Buds have an IP54 dust and water resistance rating.
The Oppo Enco Buds will reportedly offer six hours of playback via the earbuds and a total of 24 hours of playback via the charging case in terms of battery life. This indicates that the case will be able to charge the earbuds for three full charge cycles. It will take up to 2.5 hours to charge both the earbuds and the charging case via the USB-C port on the case. Oppo has also promised “Intelligent Call Noise Reduction” as a key feature, but this has yet to be proven in the real world.
When the Enco Buds are released on September 8, pricing and availability will be announced later this week.
