I’m a sucker for a wonderful design. That’s why my ears perked up when Teenage Engineering became a founding partner for London-based Nothing. After a lot of hyping up, Nothing’s first product has now been launched. The Nothing Ear (1) are budget friendly, true wireless earphones with a remarkable design.
What’s the Nothing Ear (1)?
The first thing you notice about the Nothing Ear (1) is its transparent design, giving you a glimpse of the internal components of the earphones. The AirPod looking earphones also have clear markings for your right and left ears, so you never get confused with putting them in or charging them.
There’s a case to wirelessly charge the Ear (1)’s. After a full charge they’ll run you about 34 hours, which is pretty impressive comparing it to competing wireless earphones. The Ear (1)’s also have active noise cancellation so you can use them to isolate yourself from your environment noises.
An associated app allows full control over your earbuds; you can enable and disable noise cancellation, personalize your sound or transmit a high-pitched tone, whenever you’re missing one of the Ear (1)’s earbuds.
The sound is supplied by Teenage Engineering, well known for their gimmicky musical instruments. It’s a pretty impressive sound for the price, tailored to the high-end but still providing a good representation of the bass spectrum.
