Nothing ear (1) ears with ANC will be released on August 17 for 99 euros

Nothing has officially announced its wireless ear (1) earbuds after months of teasing. The Bluetooth 5.2 earphones have active noise cancellation and the charging case can be charged wirelessly. The Nothing ear (1) earphones cost 99 euros.

According to Nothing, the battery of the earphones lasts 5.7 hours and in total that is 34 hours if the battery capacity of the charging case is included. These are numbers without active noise cancellation, if ANC is enabled, the battery life is 4 and 24 hours respectively. The charging case can be charged wired or wirelessly with a Qi charger. Ten minutes of charging is good for eight hours of listening time, according to Nothing.

The Nothing ear (1) earphones have 11.6mm drivers and the sound has been tuned in collaboration with the Swedish Teenage Engineering. There are three microphones in each earpiece for active noise cancellation. The partially transparent design makes these microphones visible. Even when making phone calls, the microphones filter out ambient noise to suppress it, says Nothing.

The wireless earphones are operated with pressing and swiping movements and can be set via an associated app. Equalizer settings can also be adjusted there. The earphones have an IPX4 rating, which should make them resistant to sweat drops. The weight is 4.7 grams each.

From July 31, the earphones can be ordered in 45 countries, including the Netherlands. The suggested retail price is 99 euros and orders will be delivered from 17 August. Nothing supplies the earphones with a USB-C cable and ear tips in three sizes.

Nothing was founded by OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei. In January, Pei announced that he had started Nothing. He wants to focus with that company on ‘smart devices’. The ear (1) earphones are the first product from Nothing. What else will follow is not yet known.
