- Nothing has announced its first audio product called the Ear 1.
- The brand hasn’t revealed the exact launch date yet
- The Ear 1’s specifics also remain a mystery
Nothing Ear 1 TWS earphones are all set to debut in June. The Carl Pei-helmed company announced the news in a blog post. The former OnePlus co-founder had launched the Nothing brand earlier in January this year.
Back in March, Nothing had dropped a teaser of the Concept 1 TWS earbuds giving us a glimpse at the device. Although Ear 1 is confirmed to launch next month, the brand has remained tight-lipped on the details of the upcoming offering.
Nothing Ear 1 to launch next month
In a blog post, Nothing says that “Design is still top secret but what we can tell you is that Ear 1 combines notes of transparency, iconic form, and refined functionality. It is the starting point that will define the artistry, confidence and craftsmanship that will carry our products and services for years to come.”
An illustration shared alongside the blog post reveals a long stem and two buttons in red and white colours. The Ear 1 will be designed in collaboration with Teenage Engineering. The upcoming offering looks quite different from Concept 1 teaser. However, it could be the final evolution of Concept 1. The blog post adds that the Ear 1 will have a ‘stripped-down aesthetic’ and the brand didn’t feel the need to dress it up with a fancy name. The earphones will also retain some form of transparent design that was showcased in the concept.
Nothing also hinted at a sequel to Ear 1 which will likely be called Ear 2. However, no concrete details of the Ear 1 have been revealed.
Nothing CEO Carl Pei also addressed in the blog post that the company is launching earbuds first because like others, they love music, podcasts, and audiobooks. “We believe the earphones market was begging for differentiation, a space where we can elevate design and deliver value from day one,” Pei added.
Nothing hasn’t shared the exact launch timeline of the Ear 1. The brand revealed that it will enter other product categories in the future.
