Moving on to the design, the unit we have is the white variant, and the case of the Enco Buds W12 has a glossy finish and it looks like a pill-shaped device. It has a smooth texture with the OPPO logo at the very top and underneath is some text and certifications. The front has a tiny LED dot to indicate the status of the earbuds while at the back is a USB Type-C port but unfortunately, we didn’t get any free USB Type-C cord inside the box.

The earbuds also have a smooth reflective finish but with a matte white texture on the opposite side. It is an earbud with the default medium rubber ear tips size and it already fits perfectly in my ear.

There are no buttons on the case and on the earbuds but there’s a capacitive touch on the earbuds which can only input taps and holds, while the case offers instant connection and the hinge acts as a sensor to lit up the LED.

It offers taps, double taps, triple taps, and holds with straightforward functions similar to other earbuds. The triple-tap gesture activates game mode.

Speaking of, the earbuds come with a low latency game mode with only 80ms of latency to deliver an immersive experience and faster response.
