On January 11, 2024, the Enco Buds2 Pro was introduced, showcasing a contemporary and stylish redesign departing from its earlier oval to moon-shaped predecessor. The latest iteration adopts a distinct “boxy” design, a departure from the previous aesthetic. This updated and sleek appearance not only signifies a departure from the prior design language but also introduces a fresh and modern look to the Enco Buds2 Pro, enhancing its overall appeal.

Design Suits long hours

The OPPO Buds2 Pro comes in Granite White and Graphite Black, both the case and earbuds boasting a two-tone texture and matte finish that contributes to an entirely rejuvenated appearance. Designed with meticulous attention, the Enco Buds2 Pro has undergone extensive testing to ensure compatibility with a diverse range of ear shapes, ensuring a perfect and snug fit. 

A smooth soft-touch complements the comfortable shape and size feel, mitigating any potential ear fatigue even during prolonged listening sessions. This thoughtful design approach not only prioritizes aesthetics but also emphasizes user comfort, making the OPPO Buds2 Pro a compelling choice for audio enthusiasts.

Hey Melody App

For smartphone users from different brands, the Enco Buds2 Pro offers seamless compatibility through download options on both Google Play and iOS. Once Bluetooth is activated, the Enco Buds2 Pro becomes visible; a simple selection and pairing process allows users to effortlessly immerse themselves in their world, reveling in the music that suits their moods. Gamers can enhance their experience by activating a specific mode that enriches the bass during gameplay.

The device’s touch controls add convenience, with customizable options for preferred sides of the earbuds. A single tap enables Play/Pause functionality, while a double-tap serves for selecting the next song, activating the voice assistant, or engaging Game mode. Similarly, a triple-tap facilitates accessing the previous song, voice assistant, or Game mode. For device switching, a long touch and hold is all it takes.

With Bluetooth 5.3 support, the Enco Buds2 Pro ensures synchronization of audio and visual elements with a remarkable 94ms low latency at the system level, providing users with an enhanced and uninterrupted audiovisual experience.

PlayBack Hours 

Each Enco Buds2 Pro earbud weights 4.3g, and the accompanying case weighs 38.1g, ensuring a lightweight and convenient audio solution. This design allows for prolonged listening sessions on a single charge, making it ideal for extended use. With a 480mAh battery in the case, a single full charge can last close to 2 weeks, while the earbuds, featuring a 36mAh battery, provide a continuous 5-hour listening experience without interruptions.

For heavy users, such as myself, the Enco Buds2 Pro’s impressive battery life ensures usage beyond weeks without requiring a recharge. The charging time of 2 hours for both the case and earbuds is due to the larger 480mAh battery capacity. The earbuds also boast an IP55 Dust & Water Resistance certification, making them resilient to gym workouts and accidental water exposure. Whether you are a casual or avid listener, the Enco Buds2 Pro offers a reliable and durable audio experience for various scenarios.

Clarity over the Crowd (Calls)

The Enco Buds2 Pro, despite lacking ANC, manages to deliver clear calls through innovative features. While ANC is conventionally associated with music streaming, the absence of this feature in the Enco Buds2 Pro raises questions about its ability to provide noise reduction during calls. 

However, equipped with a Dual Microphone and AI Clear Call Algorithm, these earbuds ensure high-quality conversations by minimizing interruptions and distractions. Although not eliminate background noise, the system analyzes the Dual Microphone input to reduce ambient sounds, allowing for nearly perfect conversations significantly. 

The Enco Buds2 Pro is not limited to calls; it excels in other audio tasks, such as vlogging, and providing clear recordings for presentations. OPPO has prioritized user safety by incorporating a mix of mechanical two-mic input and AI noise isolation to mitigate potential harm to users’ ears. 

This approach benefits both parties in a call, as it eliminates the need to raise call volumes to comprehend conversations. By maintaining reasonable volume levels, users can minimize exposure to loud noises, reduce the risk of long-term hearing damage, and enjoy comfortable calls and music streaming simultaneously.

Immersive Into Your World (sound)

 If you’re someone who shares my passion for immersive beats and intense bass, then the Enco Buds2 Pro is your ticket to escaping the clamor of the outside world and immersing yourself in your musical sanctuary. 

Featuring a powerful 12.4mm driver, these earbuds excel in delivering high-quality sound that captures the essence of various musical genres, from mellow tunes to pulsating beats. The large 12.4mm driver unit ensures a rich and full-bodied bass quality that resonates with the right notes. 

Additionally, the Hey Melody app allows you to personalize your listening experience by selecting tunes based on your preferences. The Enco Master Equalizer offers versatile options like Balanced, Bass, and Bold, enabling you to tailor the sound profile to suit your mood and musical taste.

Should you buy it?

For those seeking an affordable yet outstanding pair of earbuds, priced at just RM169, there’s no reason to pass up on this remarkable offering.
