Today, Nothing finally released the Nothing Ear (2) as promised. The previous significant leaks of these earbuds gave us practically complete knowledge about the new models, although they do have a few great enhancements while maintaining the old models’ attractive look.
The translucent design of the Nothing Ear (2) conceals the majority of the alterations that have been made, despite the fact that they mainly have the same outward appearance. The earbuds include active noise cancellation that can reduce noise by up to 40 decibels. Some people could be disappointed by this, however, since nothing has changed from the previous version.
The good news is that there are still modes available for tuning this. The squeeze control on each earbud accomplishes exactly what its name implies. The music may be played or paused, and you can answer or end a call by pressing once. Triple pressing will skip the track backward and double pressing will skip the track forward or refuse the call. To switch from ANC to Transparency mode or vice versa, press and hold the earpiece.
The 11.6mm dynamic audio drivers in the Nothing Ear (2) are also present. The interior cavity has been enlarged however this time. No evidence suggests that this enhances the “richness” of the audio. This modification does appear to make sense in light of how sound and acoustics operate. Additionally, the LHDC 5.0 codec is included, and each bud may send music at up to 24-bit/192kHz.
You may connect the earbuds to two different devices using the multi-point connection feature of the Nothing Ear (2).
It turns out that the Nothing Ear (2) is fantastic in other contexts as well. For instance, the casing itself is IP55 rated while you are receiving an IP54 protection against dust and water. This time, the earphones are lighter and the casing is smaller. Each earbud contains a 33mAh battery, according to the manufacturer, which can last up to four hours with ANC on or six hours and twenty minutes without it.
A 485 mAh battery within the charging cover will extend battery life by 22.5 hours with ANC and 36 hours without ANC. Additionally offered are wireless charging at 2.5W and fast charging at 10W.
The Nothing Ear (2) is available for purchase and costs $149, £129, or €149. Preorders for the Nothing Ear (2) are now open at nothing.tech. Additionally, Kith shops in the United States, France, and Japan as well as Nothing Store Soho in London sell them. On March 28, a few physical and online merchants will start selling the earphones.
