OPPO Launches It’s First Noise Cancelling Headphones But Why Is It A Neckband?

OPPO has been busy in recent weeks. They first unveiled the sequel to their flagship Reno series of smartphones, the Reno 2 and now, the company has announced the introduction of it’s very first noise cancelling earphones, the OPPO Enco Q1.

The caveat? The Enco Q1’s are not true wireless earphones but instead come in a wrap around neckband form factor. With true wireless very much being in trend right now, you’ll be hard pressed to find a place for neckband wrap around headphones these days. Also, neckband headphones are obviously neckband earphones. Who came up with the term neckband headphones?! This annoys me so much!! But that’s beside the point. Of course, there are people who love the form factor and I suppose it’s great that OPPO is catering to that crowd.

The OPPO Enco Q1 headphones use hybrid active noise cancellation, in which feed-forward and feedback microphones work together with a noise canceling algorithm to maximally block out surrounding noise. The headphones also boast dynamic driver units with 11.8 mm composite diaphragms, in addition to support for AAC format, three immersive 3D audio modes, and audio tuning developed by a specialized acoustics team—So basically what you’d expect from noise cancelling earphones in 2019.

The headphones use a USB-C charging port, and can continuously play audio for 15 hours with noise canceling on, or 22 hours with noise canceling off on a full charge. Launching together with the OPPO Reno 2 , the Enco Q1 will be launching on the 15th of October 2019.
