Nothing – the new gadget brand from OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei – and all the teasing around the company’s upcoming Ear (1) wireless earbuds reveal has gotten us excited. It is especially true now that nothing has revealed any of the key specifications for the earplugs.
According to the company, the $ 99 Ear (1) wireless earbuds with active noise reduction (ANC) will have impressive battery life for budget-friendly knobs, providing up to 24 hours of total battery life with ANC-enabled and up to 34 hours of battery life without.
It is the total time offered by fully charging the carrying case, which charges the earbuds when not in use, much like Apple AirPods and many other wireless earbuds. We do not yet know how long the buds can last in a single session without the on-the-go refills.
On top of that, the charging bag has a 570 mAh battery and can be charged wirelessly ̵
Nothing will reveal the full details of the Ear (1) earplugs at a July 27 event a week from now. Pei shared a look at the company’s Concept 1 earplugs back in March, but it is currently unclear how much the finished project will resemble the bold look of the preview device.
Official photos of the Ear (1) charging case suggest a similar transparent lure, although a teaser illustration from May shows a completely different type of stylized silhouette.
Earlier this month, Tom’s Guide Audio Editor James Archer wrote about his excitement over the buttons of Nothing Ear (1), which promises active noise reduction at a fraction of the price of the $ 249 AirPods Pro. It remains to be seen (and heard) whether any effort will match the fit, sound quality and ANC performance of Apple’s premium earbuds.
If you are also excited about Nothing Ear (1), – so excited that you are willing to shell out extra money to own one of the first 100 pairs that exist – then you can drop a bid right now to secure a limited-edition model.
Nothing went together with clothing retailer StockX to offer the platform’s very first technical fall. The earplugs will sell to the top 100 bidders, with each case numbered individually to reflect the bidder’s position on the list. In other words, if you place the highest bid before the auction ends, you will get the item marked “1/100.”
The auction ends today (July 21), and the highest bid is $ 850 at the time of writing. However, a bid just north of $ 200 per now will still give you one of the 100 pairs. So be sure to take a look at the StockX auction if you want to swap cash in your pocket for a little nothing.
