After months of leaks and speculations, Nothing has finally lifted the veil off the Ear (Stick). The Nothing Ear (Stick) is the company’s second pair of earbuds and third product to be out on the market after the Nothing Phone (1). A lot of emphasis has been put on the design of the Nothing Ear (Stick). It is every bit unconventional and something that you have never seen before in the earbuds market in India. Apart from an eye-catching design, the Nothing Ear (Stick) boasts a good battery life which offers up to 29 hours of playtime and a large 12.6mm driver that promises good sound quality.
Talking about the Nothing Ear (Stick), the Nothing co-founder Carl Pei said in a statement, “As we’re about to cross one million products sold worldwide, I can’t wait for people to get their hands on our third product, Ear (stick). It balances comfort while delivering our most advanced sound experience to date. The case is inspired by lipstick silhouettes and features a unique, yet functional, twist opening.”
Nothing Ear (Stick): Price and specifications
Nothing Ear (Stick) has been launched at a price of Rs 8499 in India. The pen sales for Ear (stick) will begin on November 4. The earbuds will be available across 40+ countries and regions, including the UK, USA and Europe at nothing.tech and select retailers. In India, the Ear (stick) will be available from November 17, 2022 on Flipkart and Myntra.
The Nothing Ear (Stick) is equipped with 12.6mm drivers, which promises to deliver rich depths, clear highs and bold details. The company claims that the sound quality remains consistent even at different frequencies.
Each bud weighs only 4.4g, which, in the company’s words, makes the device featherlight. It, however, lacks the silicone tips like the Ear (1), which means the background noise would not be blocked entirely.
The earbuds are compatible with the Nothing X app and the earbuds pair effortlessly with the Phone (1). You simply need to press a button to pair the devices.
The earbuds lack active noise cancellation but come with bass lock technology that measures the user’s unique ear canal shape and the fit of the earbuds, and detects how much bass is lost during wear.
For clear call quality, the earbuds are equipped with three high-definition mics that filter out louder background noises and amplify your voice for wind-proof and crowd-proof calls.
The earbuds feature press controls that are located on each earbud and work even when your fingers are wet. Users can press on the earbud stem to play,pause, skip tracks, activate voice assistance and change volume.
In terms of battery, the Ear Stick promises up to 7 hours of listening time with the earbuds and up to 3 hours of talking time with the earbuds. The case packs another 22 hours of charge, for fast charging. You can plug in the charger for 10 minutes and a listening time of up to 2 hours.
