The OPPO ENCO Air2 Pro resembles Apple's AirPods. The pair's earbuds come with stems that add a comfortable and secure fit. Each weighs only 4.3 grams, so the pair is light and ergonomic to use even for long hours of listening. It also helps that the OPPO ENCO Air2 Pro rubber ear tips sit snuggly to the ears without that irritating suction pressure. And if the built-in ones don't fit, there are 2 more pairs (small and large) to choose from out of the box.

OPPO ENCO Air2 Pro Design

Despite its affordable tag, the OPPO ENCO Air2 Pro has a Smart Wear Detection feature which is very convenient. When you take out pair from your ears, this feature automatically pauses music and plays it again once you wear the OPPO ENCO Air2 Pro again. It might seem trivial of a part, but this is especially helpful in some scenarios. For example, when someone comes to you for a quick chat, you don't need to manually pause the music from your phone.

With an IPX54 dust and water-resistant rating, the OPPO ENCO Air2 Pro can be your workout buddy, as it won't malfunction even when met with sweat and liquid splashes. At the bottom of the pair's stem is where the charging magnetic pins are located, while at the front are touch controls for pausing/playing music, answering/rejecting calls, and switching modes. Unfortunately, and oddly, the OPPO ENCO Air2 Pro doesn't have touch volume control. Instead, you have to tweak sound levels directly from your connected device.

The charging case of the OPPO ENCO Air2 Pro looks premium with its glossy finish. However, this kind of clothing comes with a very common downside – it's prone to smudges and fingerprints. It's almost the same size as the charging case of AirPods but with more rounded corners that make it look like a small, flat pebble. You won't have a hard time carrying this around as it's portable and pocketable.

The charging case has a nondescript OPPO branding on the hinge area at the back, while a subtle LED indicator that glows light yellow and green is in the front. At the bottom is the USB-C port, which is the only charging method for this case since it doesn't support wireless charging.

Apart from the Smart Wear Detection feature we have mentioned, the OPPO ENCO Air2 Pro also carry listening features like Transparency Mode, Active Noise Cancellation, and ENCO Live Effects – which, for the record, all do what they're intended to do decently.

OPPO ENCO Air2 Pro Performance

For sound quality, the OPPO ENCO Air2 Pro plays it nicely with just the right amount of mid and treble as well as deeper bass and a wider sound field, thanks to its 12.4mm titanized diaphragm drivers. We played several tracks under various genres and we believe that the pair's strength is in playing pop, lively tracks. For gamers out there, you will be glad to know it offers 94ms ultra latency.

If you're open to experimenting, you can do so with the OPPO ENCO Air2 Pro via the HeyMelody app. It allows tweaking of sound signature, which you can toggle between pre-programmed sound presets.  The app is also where you can have a glance at the battery life of the OPPO ENCO Air2 Pro, toggle between the previously mentioned listening features, assign touch control functions according to your liking, and more.

Microphone quality is also a strong suit for the OPPO ENCO Air2 Pro, and we definitely recommend this pair if you're a frequent user of Zoom, Google Meet, and Microsoft Teams. Its dual-mic AI noise cancellation feature does an amazing job of filtering out the noise, whether in voice calls or video conferences.

With Bluetooth 5.2, the OPPO ENCO Air2 Pro offers a smooth listening experience as long as you're within its 10-meter range. What we liked about this facet of the pair, though, is how even with walls separating us from our music source, the sound remains steady and consistent.

Speaking of Bluetooth connection, the Enco Air2 Pro can connect to two devices simultaneously. To easily switch between devices, simply touch and hold an earpiece. Moreover, once connected, it can be used as a remote shutter, just open the camera app and double-tap the earbud.


A single charge on the case of the OPPO ENCO Air2 Pro can give you up to 25 hours of listening, which is close to the 28 hours that OPPO advertised, in addition to the four hours of playback from the earbuds' battery with noise cancellation activated and 6 hours without noise cancellation. Recharging the case and the Air2 Pro would typically take you more than an hour. But, in case you want to use it immediately after the battery is drained, a 10-minute charge will give you 2 hours of playback.


The OPPO ENCO Air2 Pro is the kind of audio accessory you can confidently recommend to your friends and family. With the pair's plethora of features and functions combined with good audio quality, commendable ergonomics, and great battery life, you know that spending P4,999 is worth it.

Head on over to the official OPPO Flagship Store on Lazada and Shopee to buy a pair of the OPPO ENCO Air2 Pro for only Php3,499, that's 30% off from its SRP!
