Nothing Ear Stick review: the coolest ‘buds you’ll ever see


It's impossible not to love the way the Nothing Ear Sticks look, but do they have the right sound to back the looks up? We find out in our review.

Eye-catching design Long battery life IP54 rating

Big buds may cause fit problems No voice assistant support

“The Nothing Ear Stick earbuds and case look incredible, with a design that's unlike any other, but the just-acceptable sound quality and simple feature list mean they don't live up to expectations.”

Nothing Ear Stick review: fewer features, more polish


With new gadgets, you sometimes hear about the “early adopter tax.” The idea is that a company's first swing at an idea might not be perfect; it might be buggy, badly designed, or otherwise miss the mark in some way. Nothing's debut Ear 1 true wireless...

Fun charging case ; Press controls work great ; Much-improved voice calls

Fit could be more secure ; Not entirely bug-free ; No wireless charging

That makes them a good pair of earbuds for the price but not a good pair of earbuds for everyone.

Nothing Ear (stick) review: Half in-ear, warts and all


Do Nothing Ear (stick) stick it to the competition?

Detailed sound quality ; Clear call quality ; Responsive touch controls ; Impressive Bluetooth 5.3 range ; Easy-to-use app

Divisive design ; No ANC ; No wireless charging ; Plenty of noise leakage

The Nothing Ear (stick) is another solid entry into the company’s earbuds lineup, packing a uniquely divisive aesthetic and powerful sound into a less intrusive, half in-ear design. Unfortunately, it falls victim to all the common half in-ear problems.

Nothing Ear (Stick) Review: Despite One Major Flaw, The Answer Is Clear - SlashGear


Nothing's focus on design has delivered some of the most striking mobile devices and accessories in recent years. Problem is, has practicality been ignored?

Sound is clean and sharp ; Software is simple and functional ; Design is unique and beautiful ; Battery life is adequate ; Hardware controls are elegant and easy

Missing deep bass sound ; One size only ; Significant hardware flaw with rogue debris ; No user-friendly option for hardware cleaning

Nothing Ear Stick review: sticks to the basics, nothing to complain about (for this price)


The Ear Stick here, stylized as "Nothing Ear (stick)", is one of Nothing's latest products, and follows the company's now-distinct transparent design language...

Surprisingly good sound for just $99 ; IP54 dust, water and sweat resistance ; Responsive touch controls ; Long battery life ; Cool design

Cylindrical case not as compact as the competition ; No wireless charging ; No ANC

Nothing Ear Stick review: Earbuds, but make it fashion


There's always something cooking with UK tech company, Nothing. Its newest earbuds, the Ear Stick, may not be sound blockers, but they are certainly eye-catchers.

Design concept is a fun, smart approach to earbuds ; Buds are lightweight ; $99 is a fair price for how unique these are ; Low latency mode is great for mobile gamers who have the Nothing Phone 1

Sound leakage is real ; Cushion-less earbuds are a "glass half empty or half full" situation ; Microphone quality is below average ; No active noise cancellation (ANC)

Nothing Ear Stick review: I wish they stuck in my ears


Man do they look cool, though

Striking look ; Reliable and satisfying controls ; Solid audio quality

Fit won't be for everyone ; Case gets dingy and isn't easy to clean ; No wireless charging

Review: Nothing Ear (stick) | Nothing's New Earbuds Are Worthy Of Their Name


No bass, no wireless charging, no noise cancelling. The sound of nothing is not impressive.

Aesthetically pleasing design with transparent "stem" and a case shaped like a lipstick.

Non-existent bass despite Bass Lock technology, no wireless charging case, no noise reduction, case is neither dust nor waterproof.

There’s no need to spend more words on the Nothing Ear (stick). The earbuds can be considered a kind of gimmick at best, if you like the idea of the special case shaped like a lipstick.
