Nothing, a London-based technology company founded by Carl Pei, former co-founder of OnePlus, is all set to launch its much-anticipated true wireless earbuds, the Nothing Ear (2). While we know what they look like, thanks to leaked press renders and studio photos, there’s a lot more to learn about these earbuds.
Design and Build Quality
The Ear (2) looks almost identical to its predecessor, Ear (1), in terms of design. It features the signature transparent case and buds that are reminiscent of the original AirPods. However, there are some notable changes in terms of build quality. The Ear (2)’s case appears to be boxier and has a silicon pad on the bottom side of the case, which should help with durability and prevent scratches.
Specs and Features
The Ear (2) boasts some impressive specs and features. It has an IP54 water resistance rating, making it suitable for use during light rain or sweaty workouts. The Ear (2) also supports LHDC 5.0, which allows for hi-res audio to be played to its full potential.
The Ear (2) has two new toggles for active noise cancellation (ANC). In addition to the standard Noise Cancellation, Transparency, and Off modes that were present in the Ear (1), the Ear (2) features two additional modes: Hybrid ANC and Personalized ANC. It’s rumored that the Ear (2) will have ANC of up to 40dB.
The Ear (2) has 11.6mm dynamic drivers, which are slightly bigger than both the OnePlus Buds Pro and Buds Pro 2. It also has Personalized Sound, which allows users to customize their listening experience based on their preferences. The Ear (2) also supports multipoint connectivity, allowing users to connect to two devices at once.
Battery life on the Ear (2) is impressive, with up to 36 hours of usage with the case. The Ear (2) can be charged via USB-C or Qi wireless charging. The Nothing X app is also expected to be updated to allow for advanced EQ, which will allow users to further customize their sound preferences.
Price and Availability
The Ear (2) is set to be priced between ₹9499-11999 in India and roughly 159€ in Europe. This puts it in a competitive price bracket, especially when compared to other recently launched earbuds such as the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 and 2R. The Ear (2) will go on sale on March 28th, but unfortunately, it will only be available through Flipkart in India.
Overall, the Nothing Ear (2) appears to be an impressive set of earbuds, with a solid feature set and competitive pricing. While we’ll have to wait until they’re available for purchase to know for sure, it’s safe to say that they’re definitely worth keeping an eye on if you’re in the market for a new pair of true wireless earbuds.
