The Nothing Ear (2), which surfaced last year via renders, is now more clearly visible. Here are some images and information courtesy of Steve H. McFly and SmartPrix showing Nothing’s next high-end buds.

The design of the Nothing Ear (2) is similar to that of its predecessor. With minor differences in where the noise-canceling microphones are placed, it is similar to the older transparent design.

Rather than at the top of the buds, the noise-canceling microphones are located at the stem. The visible elements of the internal design have also undergone some minor changes.

The Nothing Ear (2) has a new “personalized” ANC mode that allows users to customize how much noise cancellation they want. The new ANC mode will be available alongside the existing Light and Maximum modes on Ear (1). There will also be a transparency mode, as with its predecessor.

It will also feature dual or multipoint connectivity, so you can connect the earbuds to two devices at the same time and switch between them. In Ear (1), this was absent, but in Ear (stick), it was present. The Find Earbuds feature and Advanced EQ with custom settings are not expected to be added.

In the coming months, we will have more information about Ear (2) and its launch.
