OPPO Enco X headphones in video
A design to match
OPPO has not been oblivious to the prevailing fashion in the technological world that happens to have at least one headphones in the catalog. In fact, the Asian firm has several models in its repertoire, but without a doubt the most interesting, by design and performance, are our protagonists of the day, the Enco X.
The first thing that stands out about these headphones is their design. Not because it is precisely original, but because at least, being inspired by other existing ones, they have decided to take as a reference one of the best. And is that these OPPO are very similar in appearance to Apple’s AirPods Pro, betting on small, very light dimensions, of short stick and with a silicone area that facilitates a better grip on the ear – thus avoiding the feeling that they are going to move or fall easily as they are so light.
his case or box is in line with the look. The tread is markedly oval, the light weight and it is comfortable to grip. Count with one side button for their pairing (something that I personally appreciate because sometimes it is omitted in some boxes and the certainty of whether they are pairing with the team on duty or not remains a bit up in the air) and the name of Dynaudio on the back, as OPPO has partnered with this well-known Danish sound firm for the development of its Enco X.
Does the aforementioned collaboration translate into better sound quality? Well, after having tried a good number of models of this type, I can confirm that it is. OPPO explains that each headset has a internal dual-driver coaxial design which means that each of these small units mounts inside a front controller, which handles the high frequencies, and a rear one, which manages the midrange and bass.
The result of this configuration and the touch of Dynaudio is to find yourself in front of headphones with a very good volume or sound power (it is one of the aspects that have surprised me the most) and, above all, with quite strong and powerful bass. These headphones also boast LHDC wireless transmission technology which ensures a richer and superior sound than when using regular SBC and AAC transmission, which has certainly also helped make my experience so satisfying.
Refering to Noise Cancellation, present in this model, and its so-called Transparency Mode (which allows you to hear what is happening around you) the sensations with a little less enthusiasts. It is true that these wireless headphones isolate well, thanks both to their physical design and to the noise cancellation function itself, higher even than the average achieved by other True Wireless headphones. I find my problem in your Transparency mode, where the difference, between activating it or not, is very little evident. You know at all times if you are activating it or not because the headset itself emits a sound as a signal (it is activated by pressing the headset for one second), but beyond that the result will leave you somewhat lukewarm. It lets through the sound a little better, yes, but it doesn’t make a very noticeable difference either, as for example you can experiment with the famous Sony WH-1000XM4.
As I have already indicated, to activate the cancellation or transparency, you have to press and hold the headset for a second, and these Enco X have a touch surface in the area of the swab, quite accurate. It is not the only gesture you can do, of course: if you tap twice you can change tracks and if you raise or lower your finger, you increase or decrease the volume. You can modify all this from the phone, accessing its preferences, although, yes, these are quite rare. The truth is that I expected that at least from an OPPO phone I could access a more attractive and, above all, more complete menu, however, the options as I say are limited to four choices and little else, being far from the variety of options that we find in other headphones with their own control and configuration applications. A pity that the manufacturer has not put more effort in this regard although I trust that they will do so in the future.
I cannot close this review without talking to you, of course, about his autonomy, up to expectations but not without surprises. You can use them for about four and a half hours, approximately, until they need power again, also having a case, with support for wireless charging, which will offer you an additional 20 hours. Nothing that I have not seen in other models from other brands, therefore they have not disappointed me nor are they their most remarkable quality.
A perfect solution except for the price
Do I like these OPPO headphones? Much, in fact, as I anticipated at the beginning of this article, they have ended up becoming one of my True Wireless headphones and I do not doubt that I will have them on hand for quite some time. They have convinced for its design as well as for the sound quality, in addition to enjoying a very fast synchronization with the device to which it is linked, a fairly low latency and offer a fairly good and accurate recognition of gestures – something that sometimes tends to fail in other teams of the competition.
I still think that if you are looking for true noise cancellation, what you have to do is opt for over-ear headphones, and not this format, like the aforementioned Sony 1000XM4 or the Bose QC EarBuds.
His only “big” problem? Without a doubt, its price. These Enco X cost 179 euros, a cost that I think should be somewhat tighter to better convince the market. At the end of the day, if you are willing to spend this money, for a little more you can opt for the most famous “and reference” True Wireless, the AirPods Pro from Apple, so many people could finally go for these, losing OPPO the battle for a simple question of popularity. I think that having planted in the 130 euros would have been the most sensible thing to compete better in this market and stand out against the competition with greater weight. Of course, qualities for this are not lacking.
