UK-based The Nothing’s Ear (stick) wireless earphones are the company’s third product overall and second audio product. These look a lot like the Nothing Ear (1), but they don’t have silicone tips and come in a container that looks like a lipstick tube.
Following Nothing’s signature style, the cylindrical housing is see-through so that the earbuds are sometimes admired even when they’re not in use. The top of the lip gloss case twists open to reveal the earphones. There is no sign that these earbuds do make in a way that makes them comfortable to wear all day.
Each earbud has a 12.6 mm driver, and the charging case can add up to almost 29 hours of playback time. It takes 7 hours to fully charge, however you can listen to music for up to 29 hours.
Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) is not available. But Clear Voice Technology uses three microphones on each end to reduce background noises like wind and people talking. Using the touch controls, you can play music, change the volume, and use voice controls.
There is also a feature did call “Bass Lock” that automatically adjusts the bass output of any incoming sound to your location. The IP54 rating protects earbuds from dust and water splashes, but not from fully submerging. Moreover, Android devices can use Fast Pair.
With Nothing Phone (1), these earphones unlock extra features like gesture controls, EQ tuning, and a “Find My Earbuds” feature. The phone’s quick settings menu makes it easy to change all of these things. On other Android and iOS devices, you need the Nothing X app to use these features.
These headphones cost $99, the same as the Nothing Ear (1). The Nothing Ear (stick) may become available in 40 different countries on November 4.
