- Nothing's Ear (2) wireless earbuds render leaked along with unchanged design.
- Pricing and release date of the upcoming earbuds are still undisclosed.
- Nothing is hiking the price of the Ear (1).
- The company says it will launch the Ear (stick) on October 26.
Nothing, the startup led by Carl Pei, could be preparing to announce the upcoming Ear (2) headphones. Based on the images shared by 91Mobiles, the second-generation buds will be almost identical to the Ear (1).
The only change that is noticeable is the new "ear (2)" engraved text. Other than that, very minor accents are added on top of the original transparent stem-based form as well as on the charging case.
Nothing Ear (1) price hike
The source didn't divulge any details as regards the internal hardware and audio features. We can safely assume that the brand should focus on improving the sound quality since the Nothing Ear (1) didn't live up to the hype based on our colleague's review.
In addition, there was no mention of the exact release date. But it's safe to say Nothing is nowhere near introducing the second-gen Ear considering they are still planning to increase the pricing of the Ear (1) starting this week. The pair's price will be hiked from $100 to $150, a 50 percent difference. According to Nothing, its latest move is due to the current inflation.
Nothing Ear (stick) availability
Beyond the flagship lineup of noise-cancelling headphones, the company is scheduled to announce another pair of TWS on October 26. The Nothing Ear (stick) in-ears were teased a couple of times. These earbuds will have a familiar look as the Ear (1) except they will come in a lipstick-style container and are a little lighter than the standard version.
