Design, manufacturing and ergonomics

The OPPO Enco Air2 Pro is a higher variant of its mid-range Enco Air2 which does not offer ANC. The main highlight of the headphones is the active noise cancellation which rivals the same headphones offering ANC.

Design-wise, the OPPO Enco Air2 Pro has a glossy finish in a refractive bubble design, the top has a translucent exterior mimicking the bubble design. The overall design and build quality of the OPPO Enco Air2 Pro is impressive.

The OPPO Enco Air2 Pro weighs around 42.8 grams (case) and 4.3 grams (each bud). Thanks to its curved design, it fits easily in the hands and is easy to carry. The back has OPPO branding, the front has a power indicator, the underside has a USB Type-C port that supports 10-minute flash charging, and no sign of a physical button.

The headphones offer a sleek and comfortable design and come with an IP54 water resistant design, which means they can withstand water spills and splashes. You’ll find touch controls to control music and calls, and let you switch between modes (ANC, Transparency).

In the box, you get a pair of headphones, a charging case, a USB Type-C cable, user manuals, and earbuds in different sizes.

Performance, features and connectivity

The OPPO Enco Air2 Pro comes with 12.4mm titanium-diaphragm dynamic drivers, slightly higher than the 10mm drivers you see on many wireless headphones. Larger driver ensures the headphones can deliver better sound quality compared to smaller driver.

You’ll find Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), Transparency Mode, Game Mode with a low latency of 94ms, and presets you can select – Live, Bass, Clear Vocals. The ANC mode works very well, it silences the environment in a very decent way while the Transparency mode amplifies the ambience and the environment.

The audio quality on Bass mode is very good, you will find a good amount of bass with a balance between mids and highs. You can also listen to the music using Live sound for a live concert experience. The audio performance of the OPPO Enco Air2 Pro is impressive.

The OPPO Enco Air2 Pro is equipped with Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity allowing you to connect to two devices at the same time, say for example a smartphone as well as a laptop. The Enco Air2 Pro also uses Google’s Fast Pair connection which instantly connects to your Android smartphone.

You can also pair through its Hey Melody app to access and customize the features of the headphones. You can change the ANC or transparency mode, choose between Live, Bass, and Clear Vocals, as well as customize the touch controls of the headphones.

Battery life and charging

Speaking of its battery life, the OPPO Enco Air2 Pro offers up to 28 hours of battery life on a full charge (with the case). Each earbud can last up to 7 hours without ANC and 5 hours with ANC on (varies depending on your usage and volume levels) while the total battery life is 20 hours with ANC on.

For charging, it takes about 1.5 hours to charge the earbuds and about 2 hours to fully charge the earbuds and case. It supports a 10-minute flash charge that provides 2 hours of music playback, which is useful if you’re in a hurry.

Verdict
