Oppo Enco Air3 Pro Review: For audiophiles who don't want to spend over 5k
Oppo Enco Air3 Pro Review: The microphone performance is decent, providing clear voices in quiet environments, while noise cancellation helps manage background noise in noisier settings, though voices may become slightly muffled.
Oppo's latest addition to its wireless earphones lineup is the Enco Air3 Pro. Priced at Rs 4,999, these earbuds come with features like adaptive active noise cancellation, spatial sound and multipoint connectivity for simultaneous pairing with two compatible devices. On paper, the Oppo Enco Air3 Pro seems like an attractive offering. Let's delve into the details to find out if it lives up to the expectations in real life.
Oppo Enco Air3 Pro Review: Design
Oppo Enco Air3 Pro closely resembles its predecessor, the Enco Air2 Pro, but comes in refreshing new colour themes, such as the green variant we reviewed, with a gradient design. The earbuds and case look similar to the previous model. But the stems are 6 per cent shorter and the charging case is 3.8 per cent smaller. The pebble-shaped case features an elevated translucent covering on the lid which looks elegant.
The earbuds has clear 'R' and 'L' markings for easy identification. The earbuds are not just lightweight but also fit comfortably and securely in the ear canal. During our usage, we didn't notice any accidental dislodging.

Oppo Enco Air3 Pro Review: Features
Features-wise, the Enco Air3 Pro is packed with smart adaptive active noise cancellation that automatically adjusts the intensity of noise cancellation based on the ambient environment. The earbuds are rated to cancel ambient noise up to 49dB. These claims hold true in real-life use, provided users take the fit test using the supplementary smartphone app available on both Google Play Store and Apple App Store. The app helps ensure the right fit and allows for personalized noise cancellation by generating a profile based on an ear canal test.
Oppo Enco Air3 Pro comes with some noteworthy features in the app, such as the Golden Sound feature, which scans the ear canal structure and hearing characteristics. Additionally, the earbuds support Hi-Res audio (LDAC codec), enhancing the audio quality further.
Oppo Enco Air3 Pro Review: Audio quality
The Enco Air3 Pro comes with the world's first bamboo-fibre diaphragms that deliver a rich sound with balanced bass and treble. While the earbuds perform well for music, the call quality is not top-notch. The microphones struggle to filter out ambient noise in loud environments, leading to reduced call clarity.
Oppo Enco Air3 Pro Review: Battery
On the battery front, the Enco Air3 Pro impresses with around five hours of playtime with ANC enabled. The case extends the usage with an additional 30 hours of battery life, making it a solid performer in the budget segment. Charging the earbuds and case is quick and it takes less than 40 minutes to charge it completely.
Oppo Enco Air3 Pro Review: Verdict
In conclusion, the OPPO Enco Air3 Pro offers a remarkable package of features and audio quality for its price of Rs 4,999. Its performance and capabilities rival those of premium earphones, making it an excellent value for budget-conscious consumers.
