It was very tough decision to select between the 3 famous neckbands.
1. OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z2
2. Realme Wireless Buds 2 / Neo
3. Oppo Enco M32.
I did extensive research.
OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z2 (REJECTION POINTS):
1. No Dual Device Fast Switching.
2. Multifunctional button (Center button) is not easy to spot. We are customers, we need convenience. OnePlus should have raised the middle button so our finger can easily find it.
3. No left or right marking.
4. No rubber cover over charging port.
Realme Wireless Buds 2 / Neo (REJECTION POINTS):
1. There is no feature of switching to previous song directly with buttons (I don't want to install an app to do this basic function).
2. ANC and LDAC is marketing gimmick. Some neckbands don't say ANC but still cut out the noise.
Oppo Enco M32 (SELECTION POINTS):
1. Neckband shape is good collar type. Like you know which side is right and left.
2. The multifunctional button (Center button) can be easily spot on by your finger as it is raised.
3. Initially I thought that the U shaped ear flaps would cause pain but NO they WON'T. You can remove the flaps if you don't feel comfortable.
4. Dual Device Fast Switching works flawlessly from my laptop to phone and vice versa. You can switch even when you are wearing it. Need some practice. I wish if Oppo had given a dedicated button however believe me still it is very easy to switch by holding Vol+ and Vol - button for 2 seconds while you are wearing it.
5. Did call test to check noise cancellation by standing beside a building being destroyed by drills and hammers. My mom and wife confirmed that this Oppo Enco M32 was cancelling noise better than OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z2. I did not tested Realme neckband.
6. Rubber cover to cover charging port.
Charging time: Both OnePlus Wireless Z2 and Oppo Enco M32 are getting charged 80% in 10 min. I used charger of my Redmi Note 9 Pro Max which is 33 watts 5v 3amp. At 10% charge left, I plugged the charger and in 10 min I unplugged the charger and it is 90% (Actually 80%). I follow battery golden rule: Never drain the battery completely nor charge it to full.
