Oppo Enco Buds launched in Thailand on Tuesday joining the company's Enco lineup of audio peripherals. The latest addition is a pair of True Wireless Stereo (TWS) earbuds that come in two colours. They come with Bluetooth v5.2 for connectivity and the company claims the buds can last up to 24 hours on a single charge. Oppo Enco Buds also have dust and water resistance built-in along with a low latency game mode and noise cancellation for calls.
Oppo Enco Buds have what seems to be a placeholder listing on Shopee Thailand for the Oppo Enco Buds W12, for THB 99,999 (roughly Rs. 2.4 lakh) but this will not be the actual price. 91Mobiles spotted a price tag of THB 999 (roughly Rs. 2,400) which seems more realistic for the Oppo Enco Buds. The Oppo Enco TWS W11 is currently available online for Rs. 1,699 in India. The Oppo Enco Buds are offered in Blue and White colours.
There is no information on availability on the official website or on Shopee as the listing on the e-commerce website may have been premature, and doesn't offer any details. If you click on Buy Now, you instead get a message saying the product has been unlisted.
The official website does list the specifications for the Oppo Enco Buds. They are powered by 8mm dynamic drivers that deliver heavy bass, as per the company. The TWS earbuds come with Bluetooth v5.2 for connectivity and Oppo points out that where regular TWS earbuds connect one earbud with the phone and the other with the first earbuds, the Oppo Enco Buds transmit audio from the phone simultaneously to both earbuds. It comes with a low latency game mode that delivers 80ms of latency that can be activated by a triple tap. The TWS earbuds also feature intelligent call noise cancellation that uses an algorithm based on DNN (deep neural network).
Oppo Enco Buds have a frequency response range of 20Hz to 20,000Hz. They support AAC and SBC codecs. In terms of battery life, the Oppo Enco Buds have a 40mAh battery capacity in each earbud and a 400mAh battery in the charging case. They are said to deliver six hours of battery life on a single charge and a total of 24 hours with the charging case. It takes about two hours to charge he earbuds and two and a half hours to charge the earbuds along with the case, via the USB Type-C port. Oppo Enco Buds are IP54 dust and water resistant and weigh 4 grams each. The charging case weighs 37 grams.
