Nothing, the company founded by ex-OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, has officially unveiled its first earbuds - the Nothing Ear 1 wireless earbuds. Nothing is finally coming! (pun intended)
Featuring a semi-transparent design, the earbuds weigh 4.7 g each with liquid silicon tips attached on the black and white body. It sports an 11.66 mm driver paired with Teenage Engineering’s software and hardware. One of the Ear 1 earbuds’ key features is the double active noise cancellation modes: Light Mode for moderate noise cancellation and Maximum Mode for noisier surroundings. Users can switch between the two modes using touch gestures or turn off ANC completely with Transparency Mode.
Nothing boasts of the earbuds’ ability to reduce background noises such as winds during phone calls, using its Clear Voice Technology. The earbuds also have an IPX4 rating, making them sweat and splash resistant. In terms of battery life, the earbuds can last for 5.7 hours alone and up to 34 hours with the charging case. The charging case supports fast charging with a 570 mAh battery. Users will also be able to find their earbuds via the Ear 1 app.
The Ear 1 earbuds will be available on Nothing’s website priced at US$99 (~RM419) with an early limited drop of the device on 31 July at 9am ET (9pm Malaysian time). The formal launch will be on 17 August across 45 countries on the website and selected retailers. While Nothing has set up a Malaysian site, it is still unclear if the earbuds will be available locally.
