Nothing Ear (1) true wireless review | Trusted Reviews

 

The Nothing ear (1) are a good set of true wireless, which deliver a strong overall performance and a distinctive design on a modest budget.

Relatively modest price ; Good sound quality ; Distinctive design ; Comfortable to wear while resting or working out

Some connectivity issues ; Design may be divisive

Nothing Ear (1) review: is Nothing onto something with these cheap wireless earbuds?

 

The Nothing Ear (1) are transparent-ish true wireless earbuds with Active Noise Cancellation

Easy-to-use touch controls ; Loads of useful features like Find My Earbud ; Active Noise Cancellation

The case takes ages to charge ; No manual EQ settings ; The design isn’t fully transparent

There was a lot of hype around the Nothing Ear (1) buds, but they’re not as special as we expected them to be. Despite that, they do pack in tonnes of features considering just how cheap they are, and they sound great too. You won't find a better pair...

Nothing Ear 1 earbuds review: almost something

 

Standout design and noise cancellation for $99.

Unique transparent design ; Lots of features for $99 ; Comfortable and light

Buggy performance ; So-so noise cancellation and ambient sound modes ; Limited control customization

The Nothing Ear 1 earbuds bundle together features like active noise cancellation, wireless charging, and more for an appealing $99 price. They also have a unique, partially transparent design that lets you see their internal components.

Nothing Ear (1) review

 

Are Nothing's inaugural earbuds actually quite... something?

Extensive feature set ; Enjoyable app ; Strong aesthetic

Tubby bass ; Timing issues ; Over-emphasised upper midrange

Nothing ventured, nothing gained: Nothing Ear (1) has the specifications to become a budget headphone contender, but the sound is a good step below class-leading

Nothing Ear (1) Review

 

Nothing's Ear (1) true wireless earphones are one of the most visually interesting pairs on the market, and back up their good looks with solid audio performance and above-average noise cancellation for an affordable price.

Few EQ controls ; Battery life is weak when using noise cancellation

Nothing Ear (1) review

 

Do the Nothing Ear (1) true wireless earbuds live up to the hype?

Very comfortable Responsive touch controls Water-resistant

Tinny, quiet sound Poor noise cancellation Connectivity dropouts

The Nothing Ear (1) don't quite live up to the hype, with an underwhelming sound and poor noise cancellation. They are very comfortable, though, and some will love the transparent design enough to take a risk on the first true wireless earbuds from...

The Nothing Ear 1 are the budget noise-canceling earbuds to beat

 

The Nothing Ear 1 offer just about everything you need in a pair of true wireless earbuds for $100. How well do they perform in real-life use?

Long-lasting battery ; Balanced sound ; Affordable ; Unique design ; Comfortable and lightweight buds ; Above-average noise cancellation

Impractical case design ; Limited companion app ; Buggy mic performance ; No voice assistant support

Nothing claims to have fixed a lot of issues that plagued its Ear 1 earbuds at launch. In this long-term review, we try to find out whether the Nothing Ear 1 are now the budget noise-cancelling earbuds to beat.

Nothing Ear 1 review: Crystal clear

 

Nothing is entering a crowded market with the Ear 1, but with its unique approach to design it could just be the one.

Unique transparent design stands out ; Comfortable to wear for long periods ; Great sound ; Wireless/fast charging ; Reliable for video and voice calls

Battery life could be improved ; Lots of competition ; Touch gestures limited (at time of review)

It's rare to find a pair of earbuds as accomplised as the Nothing Ear 1 in the affordable market segment. They look unique, sound great, and are reliable enough to use day-in day-out.

Nothing ear (1) review: First-generation product with promise

 

Can Nothing ear (1) live up to the hype?

Incredible sound quality ; Great ANC ; Crystal-clear call quality ; Responsive touch controls ; Impressive Bluetooth 5.2 range ; Easy-to-use app ; Prompt customer support

Divisive design ; Average battery life ; Limited EQ customizability

The Nothing ear (1) screams "first generation product," for better and for worse. The striking transparent design is divisive and the battery life is average, but with impeccable sound and stellar call quality, Nothing is on the right track.

The Nothing Ear (1) are solid everyday earbuds, but underwhelming sound quality means they fall short of greatness

Lightweight, comfortable design ; IPX4 splash resistant ; Well priced

Mediocre sound quality ; Limited EQ controls ; Buggy firmware
