Opening the case and you see a small pair of wireless buds with silicone eartips. No physical or touch buttons found anywhere on the case, however, the W11 comes with gesture-based touch buttons.

The OPPO W11 headphones boast 8 mm dynamic drivers with titanium-plated composite diaphragms for enhancing the bass as well as extending the reach of high frequencies.
It supports Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity and with that, it connects to your phone the moment you open the case. The Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity also lets you switch between the paired Bluetooth connections with your smartphone. There are no issues in connecting the earbuds, pairing is very easy, just open the case and search for the Bluetooth device.
It comes with intelligent touch controls, a single tap can be used to play or pause the music, double-tap to skip tracks, and press and hold to activate the voice assistant.
You can benefit from the Bluetooth 5.0 connection which lets you hear voice calls on both the earbuds. You can always use its monopod feature in case you just want to use only one earbud, if you are on voice calls, you can make use of the single earbud to talk.
The earbuds also offer low latency, while gaming, we didn’t found any lags in the connection. On the other hand, the realme Buds Q offers its Super Low Latency gaming mode with 119.2 milliseconds whereas Xiaomi’s Redmi Earbuds S comes with 122 milliseconds low latency.
Audio Quality & Battery Life
It uses HD Audio quality which means it supports AAC audio format to get your music even better, only a few TWS earbuds offer the high-quality ~900 kbps LDAC or LHDC codecs support. When we talk about the sound quality, you won’t be disappointed at all, in fact, the quality of music is very good given its price (Rs 2,499), it didn’t give us a chance to hurt the ears on full volumes.
On the battery side, the OPPO W11 comes with a 400 mAh battery (case) and 40 mAh for each earbud providing an impressive 20 hours of playback time with charging case included, each earbud lasts 5 hours on continuous music playback.
Rivals like realme Buds Q which is priced at Rs 1,999 offers up to 20 hours of total battery life (with charging case) whereas the Xiaomi’s more affordable Redmi Earbuds S which is priced at Rs 1,799 only offers up to 12 hours of battery life. This is where the OPPO W11 shines out when it comes to battery life given the price where the realme Buds Q is a close competitor.
For the charging, the OPPO W11 takes about 120 minutes to charge from 0% to 100%.
The OPPO W11 is compact, light in weight, and comfortable to wear. The design is IP55 and the audio quality is great given its price. The 20 hours battery life is impressive and at the end of the day, you would want TWS earbuds with long-lasting battery life. For the price of Rs 2,499, we would gladly say, the OPPO W11 is a recommended buy.
