Investigate, this Reno8 Pro 5G is indeed equipped with quality audio features including Real HD Audio and a Bluetooth codec that is capable of displaying high-quality audio.

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

Namely starting from the standard SBC, AAC, LDAC, LHDC and 4 other codecs from aptx Audio even though the chipset of this cellphone is not made by Qualcomm. We also found the same list of codecs on the Find X2 and higher, as well as the Reno8 5G which we reviewed yesterday.

For your information, for those who want hi res audio quality via Bluetooth, they rely a lot on support from the LDAC codec which displays audio in bitrates up to 32bit / 96 kHz. This codec is the result of Sony’s development 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 bitrate at 24 bit / 96 kHz. However, in OPPO Reno8 Pro 5G, it is only limited to supporting 48 kHz frequency.

To listen to or stream hires audio files via this Reno8 Pro 5G Bluetooth, we need a compatible headphone device. Well, PULSA happens to have both audio headset devices 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 instantly recognizes the best codec for these two headsets when the device is connected to the Reno8 Pro 5G. And the audio quality that is transmitted is satisfactory, with a wide enough separation, clean, punchy, without any significant distortion.

Troubleshooting for XM4

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

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