TWS headphones are a booming sector where every manufacturer wanted to have their say and therefore OPPO, always recognized as a revolutionary and innovative company in the tech scene, could not be missing. So albeit with some due delay, the Chinese company has proposed its idea of true wireless headphones, presenting the OPPO Enco Free which will be officially launched on the market on December 26 in the company of the new and expected Redo 3 and Reno 3 Pro.
From an aesthetic point of view it is understandable the similarity with the most famous headphones from Apple, which also inspired the Realme Buds Air, but for the OPPO Enco Free the company has gone much further by providing the case with a beautiful emblem bearing the company logo on which the LED for the state of charge is also inserted. The packaging seems very accurate, so much so that replacement rubbers are also supplied, which makes us understand that the OPPO TWS headphones are in-ear type, net of a shape very similar to the first and second generation Airpods .
OPPO Enco Free Buds: the TWS headphones of the Chinese giant
At the hardware level we will find a Bluetooth 5.0 with a range of up to 10 meters completely innovative, capable of reducing latency with the smartphone while the sound will be entrusted to ultra dynamic 13,4 mm drivers with relative support for touch controls. The materials are similar to that proposed by Apple, with a glossy finish but unlike these, the OPPO Enco Free will also be marketed in black and pink. As already mentioned, we find a further difference in the silicone tips to offer a more adaptable fit and help the headphones stay firm in position. This design could also prove effective in directing the sound towards the ear canal as well as offering good noise cancellation, even if this is not an active type.
Charging is entrusted to a Type-C port that will allow you to provide up to 20 hours of continuous use through the case, while the headphones promise a duration of 5 hours at 50% of the volume on a single charge. We do not know if these OPPO Enco Free will also be destined for our market, but we could probably import them from alternative stores. The marketing will take place January 2020 with a price of about 120 dollars or less.
