In India, Nothing Ear (Stick) true wireless earbuds were launched today. Following the Phone (1) debut in July, this is Nothing’s second product of the year. It has been in the news for quite some time and the company has been teasing it for quite some time.
Similar to the Ear (1) case, the Nothing Ear Stick case will feature a transparent design language. It appears that the Ear Stick case has a cylindrical design as opposed to the squircle design of the Nothing Ear (1). The absence of ear tips on the Nothing Ear Stick earbuds also suggests that they will have a semi-in-ear design, similar to Apple AirPods.
The buds weigh just 4.4 grams each. These earbuds feature a 12.6 mm dynamic driver setup that supports AAC and SBC codecs. In addition, the Bass Lock feature prevents sound leakage.
Besides three mics, the Ear (Stick) can filter out louder background noise. With the included charging case, the TWS is rated to last up to 29 hours of listening time. In just 10 minutes, the TWS and case combine to offer a battery life of up to 9 hours. It supports Type-C charging only and does not support wireless charging.
It also has a transparent case and comes in a cylindrical shape. Controls for the Nothing Ear (Stick) include tap, press, and hold. A number of other features are available as well, including Bluetooth 5.2, IP54 rating, in-ear detection, Google Fast Pair, Microsoft Swift Pair, Nothing X app, Customise EQ and gestures, and Low lag mode integrated with the phone.
