Oppo Enco Air 2 Pro True Wireless Earbuds Review: The Best True Wireless Earbuds Under $5K!

When it comes to active noise cancellation in true wireless earbuds, it doesn’t seem too surprising to get this feature now for less than Rs 5000. Brands have started pushing their limits when it comes to offering performance and features. Devices recently launched by Realme and OnePlus have shown that functional ANC and good sound quality are now possible even in the budget TWS segment. In this field, Oppo has made its bet with Enco Air 2 Pro.

The Oppo Enco Air 2 Pro price in India is Rs 3,499. The portable device was released shortly after the Enco Air 2. Some important differences are seen in this in the form of in-channel adjustment and active noise cancellation. Its recent price makes it more affordable than OnePlus Buds Z2. Is the Enco Air 2 Pro the best ANC enabled audio device in the truly wireless segment? Find out in this review.


Oppo Enco Air 2 Pro comes with 12.4mm dynamic drivers, active noise cancellation

Oppo Enco Air 2 performed average for its price. I expected more from their Pro model. There are many changes in terms of design, specification and features. It has an in-canal fit and comes with silicone ear tips. Its charging case is also large.

There are also some similarities between the two models, such as the design of the earbud stem, the touch zone for playback controls, and the glossy finish of the plastic on the charging case and earbud. Interestingly, its ‘L’ and ‘R’ markings are made in the form of cutouts for the opening of the internal microphone. The portable device has an IP54 rating that protects against dust and water.

Oppo Enco Air 2 Pro comes in white and gray colors. According to me, its white version looks better because it looks a bit like Apple AirPods Pro. The charging case has a transparent top panel which looks quite unique. The USB Type-C port at the bottom of the charging case, the Oppo logo on the back, and the LED indicator on the front. The charging case is made in such a way that it easily fits in your pocket even with a wallet or smartphone.

The touch controls of the Oppo Enco Air 2 Pro worked well for me. These can be customized via the HeyMelody app. Touch gestures can be used to control playback, activate voice assistant, activate ANC, activate game mode, switch between recently paired devices, and adjust the volume. Because of this, I was able to control my music experience even without using my smartphone.


The HeyMelody app shows the charging case and the battery level of both earbuds. Through this, ANC can be enabled or disabled, gaming mode can be activated which is claimed to offer a low latency of 94ms. Apart from this, you can also switch between three equalizer presets (Enco Live), update the firmware of the headphones. The app is well designed. It is very easy to use and works smoothly with the Enco Air 2 Pro.

Oppo Enco Air 2 Pro has 12.4mm dynamic drivers. It supports Bluetooth 5.2 along with SBC and AAC Bluetooth codecs. The headphones have a frequency response range of 20-20,000 Hz and support AI-based ambient noise cancellation along with active noise cancellation, which provides decent audio quality during calls.

They also have in-ear detection. That is, the music plays when it is used and stops when it is removed. Matchmaking is very fast on these. Other than this, you can also control your phone’s camera shutter, but for that you need to have an Oppo smartphone running on ColorOS 11.3 or later.

Its battery life didn’t impress me much. With ANC on at 60% volume, it lasted just 3 hours. The charging case charged it three times from zero to full. That is, each charge cycle gives a total of 12 hours of playback. This is less than OnePlus Buds Z2.

Amazing performance for Oppo Enco Air 2 Pro price

The sound quality of the wearable is good. I listened to Netsky’s Get Away From Here and the headphones pumped out a loud, aggressive sound while maintaining the rhythm and details of the track. The sonic signature was balanced, though the tight bass was loud at times. In general, the track is quite nice. I had a great experience even at 50 percent volume. The tuning has been carried out with great care and attention to detail.

The best sound quality was found on these at 70 percent volume. Its fit and active noise cancellation worked well. Even slow tracks like Mk.gee’s You sounded appealing. The sound quality of these earphones is pretty impressive for a true wireless earphone in this price range.


The music got louder and more hurtful when the volume level exceeded 80 percent. This can be a problem when listening outdoors, but most of the time you’ll be satisfied with the volume levels and clear sound.

Its active noise cancellation performance is quite good. It is capable of providing a very good sound experience indoors and outdoors. It was able to stop the sound of the ceiling fan coming in the background, the sound of the air conditioner running, or even light traffic noise from outside. Through passive noise cancellation, it was able to stop normal noise in the house and office very well.

It has connection stability and the quality of the calls is quite good. I had no problem using it. The connection was stable and lag-free up to a distance of 4 meters between the headphones and the source device. Some difference was also felt in the gameplay. Latency improved but with that the sound quality dropped a bit.


Oppo’s audio products offer excellent value for money. Although some products like Enco Air 2 were also average. With the Enco Air 2 Pro, the company has returned to the same form again. These are very good true wireless headphones for the price. There are many useful features like active noise cancellation and app support etc.

On top of all that, the Oppo Enco Air 2 Pro has excellent sound quality and good ANC support. These can be called the best earphones in the sub-Rs 5000 segment. The only drawback is the battery life, which could have turned out to be the best all-rounder if it had been better. If battery life is more important to you, there’s also the option of the slightly more expensive OnePlus Buds Z2. If ANC performance is more important to you, I would recommend the Oppo Enco Air 2 Pro in this price segment.
