Catching up with the low-cost true wireless earphones trend, Oppo has introduced the Enco W31. These earphones promises to be a delight for music lovers due to its high bass output.

The Enco W31 flaunts a small hockey puck-shaped case with smooth rounded edges and matte finish. Inside the case, there are two in-ear earphones with flat surfaces. The flat surface makes it easy to listen to music or other stuff and also have a phone call comfortably while lying down on one side. It feels secure and doesn’t put much pressure on the ears. The fit is perfect and doesn’t slip off easily. These earphones pair easily with phones.

The W31 is IP54 dust-and-water resistant, making it sweat and splash proof. But don’t take it for a swim.

Talking about features, the earphones come with an auto-pause functionality -- the moment you remove one of the earphones, the music stops; it starts playing when you plug it back into your ear.

The Oppo Enco W31 offers touch support. You can double tap on the left side to switch between balance mode and bass mode. Double tapping on the right earphones changes the song track. A triple-tap on either sides activates the voice assistant - Siri for iPhones and Google Assistant for Android.

The Enco W31 seems to be custom made for India given the high focus on bass output. The earphones come with 7mm drivers and offer a special bass mode which can be turned on by simply double tapping the right earphones. Having said that, if you are an audiophile or someone looking at in-depth acoustics, then this may not be the right choice for you. The bass tends to be overwhelming.

While the noise cancellation is not that good during phone conversations, it is adequate for music. As far as call quality is concerned, it gets the job done and you won't have much to complain about.

Oppo claims up to 3.5 hours of playback time without the charging case and up to 15 hours with the case. If you are looking to buy your first true wireless earphones and don’t have much idea about this new type of earphones, the Oppo Enco W31 is a secure bet.
