The sequel to Nothing’s Ear 1 may provide the heebie jeebies. Known as the Nothing Ear Stick, these earbuds characteristic an extended charging case and debuted on Chet Lo’s SS23 runway. In accordance with Nothing, the Ear Stick is impressed by beauty packaging—it vaguely appears to be like like a tube of lipstick.
Whereas the Ear Stick’s design is clearly an aesthetic selection, it ought to include a number of tangible advantages. Comparable earbud instances, like that of the Artistic Outlier Air, supply a stunningly lengthy battery life. They’re additionally straightforward to seek out in a bag or a case. (Nothing claims that the lengthy charging case is extra pocketable, which is the other of my expertise with comparable merchandise.)
If clients can get previous the bizarre title (and advertising and marketing), then Ear Stick could also be a profitable product. The Ear 1 was surprisingly common, and it scored an 8/10 in our detailed overview. That stated, the Ear 1 sells at a reasonably aggressive value, and it launched the novelty of a transparent plastic design.
We don’t have any photographs of the Ear Stick earbuds. The pictures shared by Nothing solely present the Ear Stick charging case, sans buds. There’s no level in guessing what the earbuds will appear to be, although they could be bigger than the Ear 1 to extend battery life.
Nothing will reveal extra particulars concerning the Ear Stick later this 12 months. We’re primarily hoping for enhancements to the transparency mode, which is a weak level of the unique Ear 1.
