It’s something that the company’s CEO Carl Pei had a track record for at his previous mobile phone company, OnePlus, which specialized in unfussy smartphones with powerful chipsets.

We can’t vouch for the sound yet, but we love the design and retro-futurism aesthetic. For the price, there’s an impressive set of features, including variable levels of noise cancellation, water- and splash-resistance and customizable gesture controls on the earbuds themselves.

Nothing is a London-based start-up created by OnePlus’ co-founder Carl Pei. The Nothing ear (1) buds are the first-ever product to come from the brand and are a true wireless earbud with ANC.

However, it’s their design that has caught the attention of most. With a transparent casing, the inner workings of the earbuds are on display. Giving the earbuds an almost futuristic feel, there is no doubt that the Nothing ear (1) looks great, but is it style over substance? We put the wireless earbuds to the test to find out.

Here is our Nothing ear (1) review as we rate the earbuds’ design, features, sound quality and value for money.

Ear (1): Fit, Feel and Features

The clear plastic battery case that houses the earbuds when they’re not in use invokes gadgets of the 90s. The look isn’t an accident and was modeled on those products now wrapped in nostalgia. Interestingly, because of the Ear (1)’s design, there are little quirks, like its square shape not being as pocket-friendly as another design could be, though it still fits.

The clear and white case doesn’t hide dust or ear wax well. The case will, however, provide plenty of extra battery life. With ANC on, it’s an extra 24 hours and with it off, it’s 34 extra hours.

Slipping the earbuds out of the case and into your ears is natural. The earbuds are very similar to the shape and size of AirPods Pro, if you’ve tried those. There are three size rubber ear tips for adjusting and personalizing that come with the Ear (1).

The companion app from Nothing is slick and helpful. Within the mobile app, you can turn on and off ear detection, update the firmware, change the EQ and tweak touch controls. You can use the app to find misplaced earbuds, too. There’s a Find My Earbud button that makes both of the earbuds emit a sound. This is helpful for people who lose small things in couch cushions.

Key features:

  • Active Noise Cancellation
  • Simple equaliser settings
  • Up to 34 hours of battery life (ANC off)
  • IPX4-rated water resistance
  • In-ear detection

Pros:

  • Comfortable fit
  • Cool, transparent design
  • Active Noise Cancellation

Cons:

  • White/transparent case may dirty easily
  • No voice control

There are minor things you could nitpick—the battery life for each listening session could be longer—but nothing that really compromises the Ear (1)’s value. Plus, the fast-charging case makes battery life almost not worth mentioning.
