The Enco Air is an under PHP 3K TWS earbuds with up to 24 hours of playback time according to OPPO. It also boasts of a DNN Noise Cancellation for calls which we will be expounding in this quick review. 

How remarkable can TÜV Rheinland-certified TWS earbuds be? Let's find out!

Meet OPPO Enco Air

What's inside?
What's inside?

OPPO Enco Air arrives in a clean, white box with the render of the product on the front. Inside are the two TWS earbuds, pebble-like charging case, USB-A to USB-C cable, and paper documents. Just like the ones I personally reviewed before, this doesn't come with a wall charger, too.

The unit that was loaned to us is the Misty White colorway. It's made of a polycarbonate material that could be a magnet of hairline scratches over time. The pebble-like charging case features a translucent jelly design on top which I find so nice and attractive. 

You can find the USB-C charging port at the bottom while the LED notification light lies on the front of the case.

The OPPO branding is imprinted directly on the hinge of the case. Even if I open and close the case over and over again, it feels sturdy and doesn't feel cheap at all.

Each earbud is made from the same material of the case although they're glossy (since the case features a matte finish). There is no visible branding on both the outer facade of earbuds. There's also a silver chrome painting on the bottom of each earbud near the microphone.

Charging takes an hour from flat to full. According to OPPO, a 10-minute charge can last both the earbuds and charging case for eight hours. The charging case does not support wireless charging.

As soon as I opened the charging case, the Enco Air earbuds were ready for pairing. So the absence of a pairing button makes sense. In our experience, this is true for any Android and iOS device.

The insertion is a breeze, I didn't have any issue with it. I personally like this design of earbuds apart from those with ear cups since those feel a little big for my ears.

Controls:

1. Double tap each earbud to instantly skip to the next song or touch
2. Hold to activate volume control
3. Triple press each earbud to wake up your voice assistants and instantly ask away
4. Double taps are also for answering or ending calls

Non-OPPO Android users can customize each Enco Air earbuds by downloading the HeyMelody app in Google Play Store. Meanwhile, users with OPPO devices (ColorOS 11) can also customize each earbud by simply going to OPPO Enco Air > Earbud Functions on the Bluetooth interface of their phone.

In terms of audio, I like how it provides nice isolation even though it doesn't have an ANC feature. Yes, it has decent isolation even if it has an open design.

Quality-wise, it produces sound with deep lows, clear mids, and crisp highs. The Enco Air is equipped with a 12mm titanium-composite dynamic driver and power bass booster—bass lovers may find this a nice feature. In case you are wondering, it is not overpowering. 

The clarity, separation, and soundstage (kinda "airy" and wide due to its open design) are great, no wonder why it got the first-ever High-Performance/Low Latency Certificate for True Wireless Earphones from the world-renowned German technical testing company TÜV Rheinland. 

Overall, OPPO Enco Air provided us beyond its price category performance. 

Notably, OPPO Enco Air is equipped with a Deep Neural Network-based binaural audio algorithm that reproduces human voices as to how they sound in person.

Each earbud has two built-in high-sensitivity microphones for better clarity whether being used for a voice call or gaming. This is true in our experience which makes OPPO Enco Air a personal favorite for this price category.

Both earbuds have exceptional connectivity since we didn't have any issue on any of the Android and iOS devices we tested the Enco Air with.

The OPPO Enco Air is a TÜV Rheinland-certified True Wireless Earphones for a reason.

I believe this is designed with millennials and Gen Z in mind because I personally like its overall design—from the charging case to the earbuds. But, aside from the design, it sounds really nice for the price as well.

So, if you're on a budget and have been looking for TWS earphones with remarkable performance, then OPPO Enco Air can be for you.
