Oppo Enco X Review – Design & Build
We were not impressed by the overall look of the product during the Oppo Enco X review. Its casing has the same old construct that comes in two colours: black & white. Our model came in a black hue and features a streamlined curvature design. This is a compact, lightweight device that weighs about 42.5g and is very easy to carry around.
This is a sophisticated device that suits users with short hands. the handle has a unique diaphragm on the outer surface that carries a smart light with a shadow effect. Whereas its in-ear design and rounded cavity add extra flair without making it too bold or too dull. We loved the charging box’s arc which is designed in such a manner that it fits perfectly in palms.
Overall, Oppo Enco X speaks quality from its design to material choice. The device reflects a deep technical penchant that indicates Oppo’s vision for its audio products. It seems like the brand has tried to improve its convenience without compromising its performance. There are a variety of silicone ear tips, so it will be easy for you to find the best fit for your ear.
Features of Enco X
Oppo has utilized the DBEE 3.0 sound system in manufacturing the Enco X. It is equipped with an 8mm Dynamic driver and Bluetooth 5.2 firmware. Oppo claims that the wireless range of this device is 10-meter. So, you can easily move or walk around from one room to another without skipping a beat.
Its Bluetooth codec support also backs the SBC, AAC, and LHDC making Enco X true wireless earbuds. Plus, you can connect and use these with both Android and iOS devices. Binaural Low-Latency Bluetooth Transmission supports means you can use one earbud at a time. Each earphone packs a 4000mAh battery while the storage case has a large 4000mAH battery. On the bright side, the case also supports reverse charging so you can charge your phone and listen to your playlist uninterruptedly.
Oppo Enco X: Performance Review
The Enco X offers almost the same audio experience as its legendary PM-1 headphone. We were pleased with its performance and received a crispy, clear sound. The device offered echoing sound with the beats when we played Billie Eilish’s Ocean Eyes. Similar to its sound quality, Oppo Enco X amazed us with its controls.
We did not feel stuck as there was no extra resistance. The device responds swiftly to the touch controls which you can customize after downloading the HeyMelody app. To command volume controls, you must slide your finger up or down on any of the earbuds. You can skip a song or attend a phone call with the double-tapping.
How great is the active noise-canceling?
Oppo Enco X comes with an active noise-canceling feature, which is also its main selling point. All you need to do is press the earbuds for 1s to activate the noise-cancellation. The device offers two levels of noise-cancellation, lower and higher settings. You may notice an increase in the noise floor after turning up the ANC which causes a hiss. However, you can diminish the effect with the help of its transparency mode.
Overall, we found Oppo Enco X to be a value-packed device. This is a true wireless pair of earbuds that combines sound quality with innovative technology. With active noise cancellation, a 4000mAH case battery, and a USB-C charging port, this is a future-ready product. You can pair it with both Android and iOS devices, and it will fit well with Oppo mobiles.
