Nothing Unveils Game-Changing Updates for Ear (2) and Ear (Stick)

  • Ear (2) now available in sleek all-black finish.
  • Advanced equalizer (EQ) option introduced for Ear (2) with 8-band EQ and customizable frequency targets.
  • Ear (Stick) model equipped with active noise cancellation feature, enhancing the audio experience.

Nothing made significant strides in its commitment to delivering exceptional audio products. In a recent announcement, the company introduced a range of exciting updates for its popular audio devices, including the Ear (2) and Ear (Stick) models. These updates are set to revolutionize the user experience and solidify Nothing’s position as an industry innovator.

The Ear (2), known for its exceptional sound quality and sleek design, now boasts a brand-new all-black finish, reminiscent of its predecessor. This aesthetic enhancement adds a touch of sophistication to an already impressive product lineup. But the improvements don’t stop there.

Nothing has also introduced an advanced equalizer (EQ) option for the Ear (2) model, taking audio customization to a whole new level. Building upon the existing simplified presets and 3-band EQ, users now have access to an impressive 8-band EQ. This feature offers unparalleled control over the sound profile, allowing users to finely adjust each of the eight bands to their liking.

What sets the advanced EQ apart is its versatility. In addition to band adjustment, users can also modify the frequency targets for each band, providing a granular level of customization. Furthermore, the Q factor allows users to shape the EQ curve and control the breadth of changes applied across the frequency range. This attention to detail makes the advanced EQ one of the most elaborate and sophisticated equalizers available in mainstream audio products.

Users can save their preferred sound settings across multiple custom profiles, facilitating seamless transitions between different audio experiences. Additionally, the ability to share presets with others fosters a community-driven approach to audio personalization. However, it is worth noting that utilizing the advanced EQ may result in a notable volume drop compared to standard presets or the 3-band EQ. Moreover, this new feature is exclusively available on the Ear (2) and Ear (Stick) models, excluding the original Ear (1).

In tandem with the Ear (2) updates, Nothing has equipped the Ear (Stick) model with active noise cancellation. This highly anticipated addition further enhances the audio experience for users. To activate this feature, users simply need to update the firmware. However, it is important to note that enabling active noise cancellation may slightly reduce the device’s battery life. To address varying preferences, Nothing provides users with the option to revert to a previous firmware version if they decide not to use the feature and wish to maximize battery life.

It is essential to manage expectations when it comes to the active noise cancellation on the Ear (Stick) model, as its open-ear design inherently limits the effectiveness of noise isolation. However, users can still expect a reduction in low-frequency background noises, such as the hum of fans or air conditioners. While it may not perform miracles, this addition brings notable improvements to the overall audio experience.

Acknowledging previous criticism, Nothing has worked diligently to address various issues raised in previous reviews of the Ear (2). Through a series of software updates, the company has fixed the majority of the reported issues, demonstrating their commitment to providing the best possible user experience. This responsiveness to feedback underscores Nothing’s dedication to continuous improvement and their drive to deliver superior products.
