Nothing Ear 1 earbuds review: almost something


Standout design and noise cancellation for $99.

Unique transparent design ; Lots of features for $99 ; Comfortable and light

Buggy performance ; So-so noise cancellation and ambient sound modes ; Limited control customization

The Nothing Ear 1 earbuds bundle together features like active noise cancellation, wireless charging, and more for an appealing $99 price. They also have a unique, partially transparent design that lets you see their internal components.

Nothing Ear (1) Review


Nothing's Ear (1) true wireless earphones are one of the most visually interesting pairs on the market, and back up their good looks with solid audio performance and above-average noise cancellation for an affordable price.

Few EQ controls ; Battery life is weak when using noise cancellation

The Nothing Ear 1 are the budget noise-canceling earbuds to beat


The Nothing Ear 1 offer just about everything you need in a pair of true wireless earbuds for $100. How well do they perform in real-life use?

Long-lasting battery ; Balanced sound ; Affordable ; Unique design ; Comfortable and lightweight buds ; Above-average noise cancellation

Impractical case design ; Limited companion app ; Buggy mic performance ; No voice assistant support

Nothing claims to have fixed a lot of issues that plagued its Ear 1 earbuds at launch. In this long-term review, we try to find out whether the Nothing Ear 1 are now the budget noise-cancelling earbuds to beat.

Nothing ear (1) review: First-generation product with promise


Can Nothing ear (1) live up to the hype?

Incredible sound quality ; Great ANC ; Crystal-clear call quality ; Responsive touch controls ; Impressive Bluetooth 5.2 range ; Easy-to-use app ; Prompt customer support

Divisive design ; Average battery life ; Limited EQ customizability

The Nothing ear (1) screams "first generation product," for better and for worse. The striking transparent design is divisive and the battery life is average, but with impeccable sound and stellar call quality, Nothing is on the right track.

Nothing Ear (1) review: you get what you pay for?


The Nothing Ear (1) earbuds cost $100 and they sound about as good as you imagine they could. They are definitely not a bad purchase at that price, but adding $50 might get you a better set of earbuds.

Good fit and feel ; Sound quality and noise cancelation is good for price ; Touch controls are extremely responsive ; Good battery life

Case is bulky and putting the buds in is finnicky ; No custom EQ ; Mis-touches when adjusting the earbuds are inevitable

Nothing Ear (1) review: A clear winner


The Nothing Ear (1)'s transparent design will grab your attention, but it's the comfy fit, balanced sound, useful features and low price that will hold it.

Interesting design ; Great sound ; ANC with Transparency mode ; Affordable

Weak battery life ; Not the most secure fit

The Ear (1) sounds better than the average entry-level buds, while having an awful lot more features, and is drastically more affordable than its noise-cancelling peers. The short battery life and loose fit mean we’d like a refined follow-up even more,...

Nothing ear (1) review: Everything you wanted and nothing you have seen before


ear (1) is the start of a new chapter for Nothing, and hopefully, we will see more products coming from the all-new venture of Carl Pei. Priced at Rs 5,999, the truly wireless earbuds offer plenty of features, but is it worth the price? India Today...

Unique transparent design ; Snug fit ; Value for money

Unclear if the case hinge has better long-term durability ; No gaming mode

Nothing ear (1) hands-on: There’s definitely something here [Video]


With a huge hype train comes the expectation that a product will deliver. There's no denying that Carl Pei's latest venture will have to live up to a lot of scrutiny over the coming months (and potentially years), but with the launch of the first...
