Recently, our team’s video producer, Matt got his hands on the OPPO Enco Buds2

It has a stereo sound system that leans a little more toward a bass-heavy output, perfect for bass lovers. Battery-wise, it can last for up to 28 hours of listening time.

What makes this an exciting pair of true-wireless earbuds for someone that captures plenty of photos is that there’s a feature on the buds to toggle with your phone’s camera hands-free.

So, Matt took it out for a spin over the weekend to test how it performed.

Tap to snap 

To trigger a phone’s camera control’s on the OPPO Enco Buds2, you’ll simply need to tap twice on either the left or right earbud.

Getting the hang of it may take a couple of tries, at least in Matt’s case, but it eventually worked out.

While at an animanga event, there were several instances where the introverted Matt wanted to snap a photo of himself without the help of a stranger. 

With the earbuds’ double-tap feature, he could simply place his phone against a nearby shelf, tap twice on an earbud, pose, and take a shot. It goes without saying that using this feature can save you the rush of setting up a timer and running back to position.

Tap to film

The unedited dance videos you take of yourself for TikTok would usually start off with an awkward walk into position, after hitting record on your camera.

Using the OPPO Enco Buds2, the double-tap function also works for videos so you can get into the frame before recording.

It’s a function that works great with vlogs too, though be aware of the slight delay that comes from the latency of certain Bluetooth devices.


While the double-tap feature on the OPPO Enco Buds2 can be a nice perk to have, it’s worth noting that it only works on devices in the OPPO ecosystem. 

But for RM129, the pair of earbuds can make for a budget option if you’re looking for good sound quality with a deep bass.
