Nothing's best audio products to date feature exciting upgrades

LONDON, April 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Nothing announced today during its Q1 community update, live from Tokyo, Japan, that it will establish a new foundation for its suite of audio products with two new wireless headphones, Nothing Ear and Nothing Ear (a). At the same time, Nothing announced that it will improve its overall user experience with industry-first ChatGPT integrations in its audio and smartphone products.

A culmination of constant refinement in design and engineering over the past three years, Nothing's newest audio products offer a premium user experience for both the audiophile and everyday listener. The company has reduced the numbers of its audio products to focus on the product and user experience. Nothing Ear is designed for audiophiles looking for the best sound quality, while Nothing Ear (a) is for those looking for the best daily audio companion.

"By integrating ChatGPT with Nothing headphones, including the new Nothing Ear and Ear (a), and with Nothing OS, we have taken our first steps towards change and there is more to come," said Carl Pei, CEO and co-founder of Nothing . "As always, we look forward to receiving feedback from our community."

Nothing Ear - Sound, Evolved

Ear, a refinement of Ear (2), retains and evolves Nothing's iconic transparent earbud design to deliver the best audio experience ever created by the company, delivering richer sound without compromising performance.


Designed with audiophiles in mind, Nothing Ear features Nothing's most advanced driver system to date with a custom 11mm dynamic driver with carefully selected premium materials to deliver the most authentic and clear sound, including a ceramic diaphragm for superior performance. overall richness and crisper treble. Nothing has improved the dual-chamber design over that of the Ear (2) with two additional vents to improve airflow and, as a result, provide clearer sound.

Ear supports LHDC 5.0 and LDAC codec for high-resolution streaming over Bluetooth, resulting in powerfully pure audio. Ear can reach up to 1 Mbps 24 bit/192 kHz with LHDC 5.0 (Low Latency High Definition Audio Codec) and up to 990 kbps and frequencies up to 24 bit/96 kHz with LDAC.

Nothing's advanced equalizer provides more customization through a simple graphical interface in the Nothing X app. Users can enhance their listening experience with Q Factor and frequency control, as well as create separate profiles for different genres. When a person creates a personal sound profile in the Nothing X app, the recorded data is used in real time to adjust equalizer levels based on the hearing test results.


Ear features Nothing's most effective and intelligent noise cancellation powers. The new Smart ANC algorithm checks for noise leakage between the headphones and the ear canal and accordingly adds more noise cancellation. Ear also takes background distractions into account with Adaptive ANC, which automatically applies one of 3 levels of noise cancellation: high, medium and low. At 45 dB, Ear offers noise cancellation that is almost double that of Ear (2). With a bandwidth of up to 5000 Hz, Ear can effectively detect and reduce the most challenging sounds.


Developed to go further, Ear's compact custom controller allows for a larger battery, resulting in battery life that lasts 25% longer than Ear (2) - lasting up to 40.5 hours after a charge Complete with charging case or 8.5 hours of non-stop playback. For quick power-ups, Ear supports wireless charging at 2.5W. Ten minutes of fast charging provides ten hours of listening time with the case.

Ear features Nothing's most advanced Clear Voice technology yet with a new microphone design, allowing for less obstruction when speaking during a call. An additional new airway has been added to the stem to give the wind a clearer path, reducing interference by 60% compared to Ear (2).

Users can seamlessly switch between devices in real time with Dual Connection. With Low Lag mode, Ear can reduce audio delay compared to normal use, depending on the connection with the other end device for smooth gaming. Scroll controls can be accessed to skip tracks, switch between noise cancellation modes, and adjust the volume.

Nothing Ear (a) - A jugar

Made for every moment of the day, Nothing Ear (a) is for music lovers. With an eye-catching design and powerful noise cancellation technology, it is the ultimate daily audio companion.

Designed in London

Designed in London and in the purest style of the brand, Ear (a) features the transparent design of Nothing, but takes a new direction with a fresh bubble design and yellow color. With smooth contours and a thin rectangular frame, Ear(a) feels as good in your pocket as it does in the palm of your hand.

Hello Yellow

Ear (a) yellow is Nothing's first product in a color outside of black and white. Not only does yellow perfectly complement the playfulness of Ear(a)'s design, but it's a color that theoretically aligns with Nothing's value of transparency. If one eliminates how colors are constructed, the primary colors remain. This purist approach to color gave rise to Nothing an Ear (a) yellow: a vivid and fun audio product.


With Nothing's new Smart ANC algorithm, Ear(a) checks the seal inside the ear canal for noise leaks and generates more noise cancellation to block out as much noise as possible. Adaptive ANC detects distractions in your environment and automatically applies high, medium, or low noise cancellation levels to surrounding noise.

At 45 dB, Ear (a) offers noise cancellation that is almost double that of Ear (2). Additionally, with a bandwidth of up to 5000 Hz, Ear(a) can effectively detect and reduce the most challenging sounds.


The new Ear(a) driver delivers 2.5x more transient power that takes advantage of Nothing's innovative dual-chamber design. This power increase delivers even deeper and more powerful bass performance.

To protect sound details, Ear (a) is Hi-Res Audio certified. It can stream high-resolution audio over Bluetooth connections at up to 990kbps at 24-bit/96kHz and supports the widely supported LDAC* codec for high-resolution streaming over Bluetooth.


The Ear (a)'s 500 mAh battery in the charging case and 46 mAh battery in each bud allow users to get up to 42.5 hours of music playback after a full charge with the charging case. For quick power-ups, Ear (a) can fast charge for ten minutes and offer ten hours of music playback (with the case and ANC off).

For easy switching between activities, Ear (a) can connect to two devices at the same time. Like Ear, Ear (a)'s Low Lag mode reduces audio delay compared to normal use, depending on the connection to the other end device. Scroll controls can be accessed to skip tracks, switch between noise cancellation modes, and adjust the volume.
