Compression -- 4 : RMAN (BASIC) Compression

BASIC Compression in RMAN is free with the Enterprise Edition. Advanced Compression with a specified algorithm requires the Advanced Compression Option Licence.

Compare the INPUT_MB and OUTPUT_MB to see the compression achieved.

Default compression can also be configured with

RMAN> show compression algorithm;

RMAN configuration parameters for database with db_unique_name ORCL are:
CONFIGURE COMPRESSION ALGORITHM 'BASIC' AS OF RELEASE 'DEFAULT' OPTIMIZE FOR LOAD TRUE ; # default

RMAN> 
RMAN> CONFIGURE DEVICE TYPE DISK BACKUP TYPE TO COMPRESSED BACKUPSET;

new RMAN configuration parameters:
CONFIGURE DEVICE TYPE DISK BACKUP TYPE TO COMPRESSED BACKUPSET PARALLELISM 1;
new RMAN configuration parameters are successfully stored

Note the slight discrepancy in reported backuppiece size.  The LIST BACKUP shows it as 207.82MB,  the query on v$rman_backup_job_details dividing the output_bytes by 1048576 shows the size as 225MB (truncating to units) while the OS level "du -sh" command shows it as 208MB.
