As I expected, true wireless earbuds are an absolute dream come true and I now feel like a total idiot for not at least buying a cheap pair years ago. But what I didn’t expect is that the cheapest pair would actually be my favourite.
Since the day AirPods first graced the shelves of the JB Hi-Fi I worked at years ago, I have been eyeing off a pair of true wireless earbuds. But, on account of the fact that I would rather untangle my EarPods every single day than fork out $250 to buy a pair of AirPods, I have never actually tried a pair of true wireless earbuds.
So naturally, when Oppo gave me the opportunity to test not one but THREE pairs of wireless earbuds, I jumped at the chance. For those playing along at home I tested the Enco Air ($149), the Enco Free2 ($199) and the Enco X ($349).
Straight out of the box it’s clear that the Oppo Enco Air is attempting to be a dupe to Apple’s AirPods (and honestly, most true wireless earbuds seem to be doing the same). But my main question when trying these was if trading out the Apple branding and quality for a $100 discount was going to be a decision I’d come to regret.
It really is as simple as connecting the Bluetooth and choosing the song, which is super handy if you’re buying these as a gift for someone who is about as tech-savvy as a loaf of bread.
Connectivity and Fit
The Enco Airs are super easy to set up, and thanks to the 10-minute fast charging feature, I had these bad boys in my ears and absolutely obliterating my eardrums with Lorde’s Solar Power within minutes.
The Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity was solid enough that I didn’t encounter any issues when making calls. And with a 10-metre range, it sits pretty much on-par with the AirPods. Nothing huge, but it’s enough to mean you don’t have to carry your phone in your pocket while filling up your coffee.
As you’d expect from a pair of earbuds that visually look near-identical to the Apple AirPods, these are really comfortable to wear, which means even on my two-hour walk along the Yarra, I’m not dealing with awkward-fitting earbuds.
