Oppo Enco Air 2 review For those on a budget

Top Features

Good battery

Audio quality


The sub-Rs 5,000 price segment is crowded with multiple options of earbuds for a user to choose from. Smartphone brand Oppo entered the true wireless earbuds market with the launch of Oppo Enco W31 which was launched in May 2020. The company has launched its latest pair of wireless earbuds in India. Dubbed as Oppo Enco Air 2, the earbuds carry entry-level pricing of Rs 2,499 and boast features such as a 24-hours long battery, AAC high-definition audio coding support and a translucent jelly case lid which comes as a new design element. We used the device for some time and here’s our review:

Oppo Enco Air 2


Oppo Enco Air 2 wireless earbuds feature the stem design with an all-plastic body. The company has dropped the silicone ear-tips and has a universal fit. This means the in-ear fit may vary for users and may not be as secure as one may expect. In our case, the fit was a bit loose and there was a constant worry that the earbuds may fall off. And it did too during runs and workouts. Having said that, the earbuds are lightweight. Each bud weighs 3.5 grams and does not cause any discomfort to the ear when used. The earbuds also offer touch controls to change music tracks, answer calls and turn on the gaming mode.

What makes the Oppo Enco Air 2 stand out from the crowd is its charging case. The case has a unique translucent lid and a pebble-shaped shell. The case is small enough to carry in the jeans pocket. The charging case has a USB Type-C charging port. The device’s box does not include a charging cable which does away with the need to carry an extra cable in your bag.

Oppo Enco Air 2 works with both Android and iOS devices. The earbuds pair with the phone via Bluetooth. It runs Bluetooth version 5.2 for connectivity. Once connected, the earbuds will automatically connect to the device each time they are out of the case. The earbuds also enter sleep mode automatically when it’s outside of the charging case and haven't been used for a while.

Oppo Enco Air 2 is an entry-level device and delivers satisfactory audio quality in its price range. While the sound delivered is good, do not get your expectations high. Similar to other entry-level audio devices, the bass meringue frequency is a bit enhanced. The earbuds are equipped with a 13.4mm driver unit.

While not much is there to offer for iPhone users, Android users can choose from two audio profiles- Bass boost and Clear vocals from the Hey Melody app. Oppo Enco Air 2 earbuds do not offer any noise cancellation feature. This may come as a disappointment for some. In terms of audio levels too, the earbuds do have not much to impress.

Oppo Enco Air 2 wireless earbuds can be used to receive calls. We did not face any call drops due to the earbuds during our review. Also, the clarity was good while answering calls with the earbuds. Touch controls are responsive and function smoothly. Touch and hold on the left bud to reduce volume. Do the same on the right bud to increase the audio. Users can also enter the gaming mode with three taps. It offers low latency along with the Dynamic Buffer technology to boost the overall gaming experience.

In terms of battery, Oppo Enco Air 2 earbuds can last up to 5 hours on a single charge. The charging case can be used to charge the device 4-5 times easily. The case takes about two hours and a half to charge with a standard charger.


Audio performance of Oppo Enco Air 2 wireless earbuds is satisfactory, if not excellent. The device is a worthy option in terms of battery and can easily last a week for an average user. The overall design and fit of the device are decent. However, the lack of features like noise cancellation and wear-detection sensors may not work in its favour given that others in the same price bracket offer these.
