La nueva empresa fundada por el cofundador de OnePlus, Carl Pei, of number Nothing, pronto llevará a cabo su primer lanzamiento de unos auriculares inalámbricos a los que ha dado en llamar Ear 1, o “ear (1)”, según el estilo de the brand.
Nothing Ear 1 release date
In an interview with Bloomberg, Pei said the London-based company will launch a pair of wireless headphones over the summer months, followed by a slew of other tech gadgets.
We now know that the company has scheduled the presentation event for July 27, although its own director has come forward by stating via his Twitter account that the arrival and sale are delayed until the end of summer. .
A month ago we announced that ear (1) would be unveiled in June. We are near the finish line and there are a few things to finalize. For this reason @Nothing ear (1) will now be released later this summer. Your support and patience mean the world to us. More updates coming soon!

However, we still do not know the details of the headphones, beyond the image made public by the company itself in which we can see a new very ergonomic design.
In fact, Pei says the design is still top secret, so we’ll have to stick largely to the concept shared some time ago that takes inspiration from a grandfather’s tobacco pipe, as expression of design principles.
On July 27, we will leave all doubts, when the company finally shows what will be the first product designed and manufactured by Nothing. As another of the released images puts it, “the sound of change”.
How much will the Nothing Ear 1 cost?
We do not need to wait for the celebration of the event to know the price that these new headphones will have, since Nothing has confirmed that their price will be 99 $, being set at an economical price range to have the noise suppression.
However, in India they will be much cheaper, since the price will be 5,999 rupees, or about 80 dollars in exchange. In a video with Technical Guruji, Nothing’s vice president and general manager Manu Sharma said it was to be able to target a larger customer base in the Asian country.
This means that they are much cheaper than the famous headphones currently on the market, such as those from brands such as Apple, Samsung, Sony and Bose, among others.
Pei will also have to compete with the products of his former company, especially with the headphone model. OnePlus Buds Z, which are currently priced at 59 $.
Where to buy Nothing Ear 1
Nothing’s own Carl Pei, executive director and co-founder of Nothing has announced that the first 100 pairs of headphones from the company Ear 1 will be auctioned off via DropX starting July 19 at 2:00 p.m. BST even though that is before the launch event.
This is the first time that a consumer product has been auctioned on the DropX platform before its official launch. In addition to the transparent body of the base, it is possible to appreciate a USB C port and a button to put the headset in pairing mode.
What are the specifications of the Nothing Ear 1?
In previous announcements by Nothing, we learned that the Ear 1 will also feature Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), something we normally only find in more expensive wireless headphone models.
ANC is unlikely to be at the cutting edge of technology, but with three high-definition microphones inside to highlight music, movies, and podcasts, users will be able to enjoy a premium sound experience.
What are Nothing Ear 1 like?
While the final design is top secret until the next event, Unbox Therapy posted a photo related to the headphones with the caption “It’s different”.
Numerous responses on Twitter suggest this is the case with the headphones, but nothing has confirmed since a close-up image of the headphones “shows transparent elements” is the official image.

The three key design principles, according to the company, are described as “weightless”, “effortless” and “timeless”. You can read the full publication in the corporate blog, where it is explained how the natural interaction with the device takes place.
What other products will Nothing be launching?
Nothing is likely to focus solely and exclusively on audio, as the company also announced in Twitter a partnership with Teenage Engineering on which the product design will focus.
“Over the past few months, his unique craftsmanship and extensive experience in industrial design have helped shape Nothing’s design identity,” they say of the company. The company owns the Essential Product brands and logos.
Stockholm-based Teenage Engineering has worked on various audio products in the past, including M-1 headphones, portable stereos, instant cameras, synthesizers, and more.
In the words of Carl Pei himself, “We are building an ecosystem of smart devices. We’ll start with simpler products like wireless headsets, but we’ll have multiple IoT devices throughout the year, not just audio products so that they communicate with each other. ”
From the name given to the Ear 1 headphones, everything suggests that there will be new generations of devices. Everything that’s yet to come looks good.
