OPPO Enco W11: true wireless headphones with enhanced bass
In the segment of true wireless headphones, many novelties have been born this year. Some of our favorites have been the Huawei Free buds Pro and the LG Tone Free FN6. But we have also had the opportunity to learn about news from manufacturers that are currently in full expansion. One example is the Enco W11 of Oppo, a model good strength, comfortable design and superlative sound quality. In this article we want you to know more about the Oppo Enco W11 so that you can assess for yourself if they are a good buy or not.
Design of the OPPO Enco W11
The Oppo Enco W11 stand out for their small size. They are in-ear and true wireless type, that is, of those that are inserted into the ear and with total cable freedom. Sure, you have in mind the design of the Apple AirPods (with a stick), but in this case Oppo has opted for a design closer to the Samsung models and they leave us a very small, oval-shaped earbud.
They are quite comfortable, although it must be borne in mind that in-ear types do not always satisfy everyone, since it can take a bit to get used to them. Do not give up, because as the days go by you will see that that feeling of “emptiness” or “stagnation” that occurs in the ear disappears and they are very worth it because they do not fall off, they are very comfortable and they isolate quite well, even if not have noise cancellation technology as such, thanks to the ear pads and being closer to the ear, they reduce noise much better.
The case is also oval, with smooth and rounded shapes, and the name of the company predominates at the top. Perhaps, the only thing that can be reproached for them is that aesthetically they look somewhat large, precisely because of that round shape of the headset and because everything (drivers, battery, etc.) are in that place, so, although Oppo has tried to reduce their size as much as possible, some people may find them somewhat large.
Finally, note that they have IP55 resistance, against dust and water. It is not the most top, but to use them for sports they go well (they resist sweat, rain …).
Lower latency: the key to a more stable sound
A feature that has caught our attention in these Oppo Enco W11 is that the sound reaches both headphones simultaneously. In other models, the usual thing is that it arrives in the form of a relay from left to right. Simultaneous streaming achieves lower latency and a more stable connection and therefore a better user experience.
Connectivity is via Bluetooth 5.0, optimized for a better connection and to consume less battery. And, speaking of autonomy, the box offers up to 20 hours of autonomy with each charge, in blocks of 5 hours for each charge of headphones. If you are in a hurry, with only 5 minutes of charging you will have for a full hour of use. Great!
Enhanced bass and clearer sound
But what really matters in this type of device is that the sound quality is good. In this case, without becoming a premium range, the Oppo Enco W11 have 8 mm, dynamic drivers, with titanium diagrams, which improves the bass and reaches higher frequencies, which also translates as a sound much more nitroso. In addition, it supports AAC audio format, which if you are a sound connoisseur you surely know all its advantages (higher audio and music encoding rate in more detail).
They are also heard very well in calls, something also very important and what some budget headphones in this price range tend to click.
Noise cancellation and gesture control
When talking about sound quality, a characteristic is usually associated that is not that it improves the quality of the sound itself, but that it helps to eliminate background noise, which translates into a better experience. In this case, the Oppo Enco W11 include noise cancellation for calls. We warn you that it is not the best in the market (something more than justified by its price), but that it will help you a lot to have clearer calls without distractions.
Finally, we want to highlight that Oppo has taken very seriously the job of offering wireless headphones that give the user total freedom of movement. And it does so by including gestures with which you can control your headphones without having to take your phone out of your pocket. Here we leave them for you.
