The Nothing Ear 1 true wireless earbuds gained popularity for their transparent design and affordable price. Now, a new leak shows product images of its successor — the Nothing Ear 2 — hinting that the startup may launch them soon.
The leaked renders show that the new TWS earbuds will support features like personalised ANC, advanced EQ, find earbuds, transparency mode, and dual connectivity. It also looks like the case will be transparent, similar to the Ear 1.
Earlier this year, Nothing launched its first TWS earbuds called Ear (1) which came with great sound quality and a one-of-a-kind transparent design. They were priced reasonably and had a lot to offer.
The company has now started working on a sequel to the original Ear 1, which is likely to be launched soon. The new product is tipped to feature a similar transparent design, but the earbuds will also have some minor changes in their internals.
In addition, they will come with a ‘personalised’ ANC mode, something like Apple’s AirPods Pro.
The upcoming pair of earbuds will probably retain their original outward appearance, but the internals could have been upgraded with new magnets, drivers or better audio specifications. In fact, it is rumoured that the new earbuds will have dual connectivity and advanced EQ which will allow users to customise the earbuds to their liking.
Smartprix has leaked a handful of renders for the new Nothing Ear 2 and it appears as though they will sport some minor design changes. These include a shift in the placement of the noise-canceling microphone, which has been moved from the top to the ear stabilizer portion of the buds.
In terms of specifications, the device is tipped to feature personalized active noise cancelation (ANC) and support for a transparency mode. It also reportedly includes Multi-Point Connectivity, a Find Earbuds feature, and Advanced EQ functionality.
These features should be quite welcome on the upcoming device, as they were lacking on the first generation Ear 1. While it seems as though the new model will retain the transparent design and ANC-capable features of its predecessor, we are hoping for a few tweaks here and there to enhance their performance.
Last year, startup brand Nothing launched its first TWS earbuds, which came with a transparent design. Now, it seems that the company might be gearing up to release its successor in 2023.
While we didn’t get a solid look at the upcoming Ear 2 at its launch last year, renders surfaced online. These renders reportedly show that the device’s design is mostly unchanged from Ear 1, although there are some minor changes.
As expected, the new TWS earbuds will be priced the same as the original model: $99 / PS99 / EUR99.
The new earbuds will also come with personalized active noise cancelation (ANC) support, which lets users set their desired level of noise cancellation. They will also feature a transparency mode, multi-point connectivity to connect with two devices at once, and Advanced EQ functionality that lets users customise their audio settings.
The earbuds will also come with a Find Earbuds feature, as well as an IP54 rating for water and dust resistance. These features should make the Ear (2) a good option for a busy, on-the-go lifestyle.
OnePlus Co-Founder Carl Pei’s new hardware startup Nothing is reportedly working on a sequel to its Ear 1 true wireless earbuds. And it looks like we’ll soon get a glimpse of it thanks to new leaks.
Leaked renders of the upcoming Nothing Ear 2 show more or less the same design as its predecessor, with only minor changes to the stem of the buds. One change in particular is that the noise-canceling microphone has been moved from its previous placement at the top of the buds to the side near the stem, reports SmartPrix.
The leak also reveals that the upcoming earbuds will feature personalized active noise cancellation tech, which allows you to customize the amount of noise cancellation you want. They’ll also include a transparency mode and advanced EQ support. And lastly, they’ll come with a Find Earbuds feature.
