tabloidpulsa.id – Starting from accidentally listening to music through Apple Music on the device OPPO Reno8 Pro 5G directly from the stereo speakers of this phone, we “suspect” that there is something interesting on the audio side. Investigate, this Reno8 Pro 5G is indeed equipped with quality audio features including Real HD Audio and a Bluetooth codec capable of displaying high quality audio.

The first impression when listening to lossless music through this Reno8 Pro stereo speaker is the audio sound with a high sound level. brightness one tall. Vocal sounds can sound slick without feeling sluggish when at the peak frequency, still solid and pleasant to hear.

In other words, we are suddenly comfortable listening to music through this phone speaker, and this is something unusual for us.

Back in collaboration with DIRAC Research, OPPO is back with Real HD audio on the Reno8 Pro. But even without this active feature the sound released by this phone is slick. And with the addition of a number of preset options, we can then customize the output to suit our ear preferences.

OPPO itself has confirmed that in stereo speakers asymmetrical which is part of Reno8 Pro has an algorithm non-linear correction aka upgradeable NLC brightness in the audio from these speakers. Interesting right?

Bluetooth Codec and Disupport

Turning to our main discussion, namely the Reno8 Pro 5G support for Bluetooth codecs to listen to music through the device wirelessly. In general, Reno8 Pro supports OPPO flagship device standards.

Namely starting from standard SBC, AAC, LDAC, LHDC and 4 other codecs from aptx Audio even though this cell phone chipset is not made by Qualcomm. We get the same codec list on the Find X2 as above, as well as the Reno8 5G that we reviewed yesterday.

For your information, for those who want high-quality network audio via Bluetooth, they rely heavily on the support of the LDAC codec that displays audio at a bit rate of up to 32bit / 96 kHz. This codec is the result of the development of Sony in 2015 which is still considered the highest in its class.

Meanwhile, LHDC is one of the unique codecs brought by the OPPO Find X2 series and is supported by one of OPPO’s flagship TWS, the OPPO Enco X. In theory, it can transmit audio up to a maximum speed of 24 bit / 96 kHz. nonetheless, in OPPO Reno8 Pro 5G, it is only limited to support 48 kHz frequency.

Maximum LHDC sampling rate

To listen or stream audio files via this Bluetooth Reno8 Pro 5G, we need a compatible headset device. Well, PULSA happens to have both audio headphones that support the two hi res codecs. Namely Sony XM4 (WH-1000XM4) to receive streaming files with LDAC codec and Enco X for LHDC.

As you can see in the picture, the phone immediately recognizes the best codec for these two headphones when the device is connected to the Reno8 Pro 5G. And the audio quality that is transmitted is satisfactory, with a sufficiently wide separation, clean, punchy, without any significant distortion.

Quality audio that you might think can only come from certain products or Digital Audio Player which is expensive.

Troubleshooting for XM4

For XM4 users, if you have trouble getting the best audio quality codec (LDAC) when connecting to this device, make sure to disable the dual device connection feature or turn off the option to connect 2 devices simultaneously.

If this feature has been turned off, you will undoubtedly connect to the LDAC codec when selecting high quality audio. Enjoy!
