The OPPO Enco X They are the most advanced headphones that OPPO has released to date. They are completely wireless headphones for whose development OPPO has aliado with Dynaudio and with those that promises a high sound, but how do they behave on a day-to-day basis? What experience do they offer? It is just what we are going to see today.
In Xataka we have been using them for some time to listen to music, watch videos and movies and make calls to bring you this, the OPPO Enco X analysis. Without further ado, let’s get started, but not without making a little spoiler first: these headphones have one of the best noise cancellations we’ve ever tested.

Design: very comfortable
If the OPPO Enco X stands out for something, it is because they are very comfortable. Really comfortable, actually. They are one of those headphones that we hardly notice that we are wearing. They are small and light, 4.8 grams. They fix well to our ear thanks to the silicone rubber bands, although that will depend on the ears of each one. Fortunately, OPPO has not skimped on rubber bands and the box includes two sets of different sizes (S and L), so first of all it is advisable to try them all to see which one suits us best. It’s two minutes and it’s appreciated in the long run.
The headphones are made of a glossy plastic that feels quite good in the hand and is pleasant to the touch. Spread over the body of the headphones we have three microphones and a touch pad that we will use to control music playback, among other things, through gestures (now we will talk about them). In short, they are beautiful, simple headphones that, by the way, have resistance IP54, so you can use them even if you sweat.
As for the case, it is made of the same plastic as the headphones and it feels robust and resistant, although it fills up with footprints just by looking at it. If you are a little paranoid about cleaning, be warned. It has an LED that indicates the battery charge status, a USB Type-C port, a wireless charging base and the Dynaudio logo etched on the back. It is rather big, but not too heavy, so it does not bother when we carry it in our pocket.
Experience: complying in almost all sections
We thus go on to talk about the experience. First of all, the OPPO Enco X have a very strong integration with OPPO smartphones. They are synchronized automatically, they can be controlled from the settings of the mobile itself and if we have a OPPO Find X2, a Find X2 Pro or a compatible mobile we can exploit the LHDC codec. If we have any other Android mobile, as is our case, we will have to use the app HeyMelody to manage the device. If we have an iPhone we run out of app, but we can use the headphones without problem by connecting them in the Bluetooth settings.
The app couldn’t be more basic. HeyMelody allows us to modify what actions each gesture does, do a comfort test (to see which rubber bands are best for us) and update the firmware, but nothing more. Actually, except for updating the firmware and checking the battery status of the headphones and the case, the app can be almost expendable.
The headphones they detect our gestures well and we have a lot of customization options. We can change the song, raise or lower the volume by sliding our finger across the neck of the devices, invoke the assistant, toggle between transparency or noise cancellation mode and even switch between two devices we’ve linked them to. This function has to be activated in HeyMelody and it works really well, even between an Android mobile of any brand and an iPhone. Very useful and a detail that OPPO has not forgotten to implement this function.
Touch and hold
Toggle between two options:
Regarding latency, The OPPO Enco X have not given us problems of any kind. We can watch movies, play games and watch videos from YouTube or any platform without noticing an excessive delay between the image we see and the sound. They are, in short, very solvent headphones in all aspects, although they would have been round if 1) the app had support for iOS and 2) if the app had an equalizer to be able to customize the sound.
Sound quality: the balance
But let’s go to the main course: sound quality. As we always do in headphone reviews, we have listened to music locally and streaming, always with a 320 Kbps bitrate, which is the maximum that Spotify dispatches, on iOS and Android. The set of songs we’ve used includes our personal library, but also tracks like ‘Stir it up’ (Bob Marley), ‘You make me feel like a natural woman’ (Susan Wong), ‘Bohemian Rapshody’ (Queen) and ‘ Redbud tree ‘(Mark Knoplfer), which we use alongside many others as a test bed for analyzes.
The OPPO Enco X offer us a very balanced sound. They correctly represent all the frequency spectrum, but without standing out excessively in any of them. They don’t have that “boom” effect on the bass that you like so much in trap songs, for example, but the bass is well achieved and represented. Some might argue that they lack glue, but the truth is that, really, they do not have artificially boosted bass as it does in other headphones. In the end it is a matter of taste.
The experience with the headphones has been very, very good. Explaining the sound quality in words is complicated, but we can stay with the idea that, regardless of the genre we listen to, the OPPO Enco X offer us a more than good quality. They are OPPO’s high-end headphones and you can tell from the first moment.
If you are concerned about calls, calm down, because our voice is heard well and our interlocutor does too. In addition, the headphones have a wind noise cancellation system which, while not magical, does help the voice to be heard clearer. In short, OPPO and Dynaudio have done an exceptional job with these headphones that, without being the best, do give us a well-represented and balanced sound.
Noise cancellation: the sweet icing on the cake
I speak in a personal capacity. A few months ago I had the opportunity to analyze the Huawei Freebuds Pro and, recently, Jabra Elite 85t. For me, these two headphones have some of the best active noise cancellations on the market. Well, the OPPO Enco X stay at the same level. If we liked the sound a lot, we liked the noise cancellation even more. It is simply spectacular to take off your hat.
The OPPO Enco X have two levels of cancellation: standard and maximum. The difference between the two is slight and I personally recommend using the maxim. Not only do they completely cancel out the sound of the street, the rain or the heating, but together with the Freebuds Pro and the Jabra Elite 85t, they have been the only headphones capable of almost cancel mechanical keyboard sound I use to write these lines. Speaking in silver, the active cancellation of the OPPO Find X is crazy.

And if we have to attend a conversation, we can also do it thanks to transparency mode. It is not as spectacular as the ambient sound of the AirPods Pro, which for me is the best by far, but it does serve to let the voice of our interlocutor pass through. The experience has been correct, but nothing to do with the one they offer by canceling noise. It is a correct transparency mode, but without more.
Battery: a little below average
We finish talking about the battery, and this is where the OPPO Enco X fall a little below what is expected. Inside each earphone we have a 44 mAh battery that adds to the 535 mAh in the case. With a full charge and maximum active noise cancellation turned on, the headphones are capable of delivering about four hours of playback, slightly less if we use them at a higher volume than the account and something more if we deactivate noise cancellation. It is not the highest figure on the market and it remains below the average, which is usually five hours.
The case is enough to fully charge both headphones up to four times, so in total we have an autonomy of around 20 hours. If the headphones and the case run out of battery, charging everything will take us about two hours using the cable. We can also opt for wireless charging, but as long as we keep in mind that it is slower.
OPPO Enco X, the opinion of Xataka
At this point, we can only say that the OPPO Enco X are fascinating headphones that for less than 200 euros they will more than fulfill their mission. Our experience with them has been very positive. It is true that they do not have the best sound quality on the market, but they do have one of the best noise cancellations. Come on, they are headphones that will not disappoint us in almost any way.
And we say “almost” entirely on purpose, as the HeyMelody app strikes us as too generic and basic and is not available on iOS. In addition, the battery falls below its more direct rivals with four hours of autonomy. But otherwise, We liked the OPPO Enco X a lot. For 179 euros, they are more than recommended headphones.
- The noise cancellation is sensational.
- It has a multi-device connection.
- They are really comfortable.
- The application is only on Android and is very basic.
- The case fills with fingerprints just by looking at it.
- The autonomy is lower than that of its competitors.
