It isn’t fully clear if Nothing is releasing an improve to the Ear (1) TWS headphones, however rumors appear to point that their newest product, the Nothing Ear (Stick) is solely a brand new charging case for his or her present headphone design Final yr’s TWS.
I guess you’ve a variety of questions. Don’t fret, neither do I. The announcement (or somewhat reveal) for the Ear (Stick) got here somewhat unexpectedly, with no poster or a keynote to mark its second. Unveiled as an adjunct at Chet Lo’s SS23 catwalk vogue present, the Ear (Stick) seems to be a brand new case design for the Ear (1) Buds. In contrast to the outdated case which is sq. in form, this one is similar form and dimension as a lipstick (or should you’re searching for a much less glamorous time period, a nebulizer). It’s unfair to imagine or speculate that in-ear (Stick) headphones are merely the older headphones. So far as we all know, the design hasn’t modified, though nothing has indicated that maybe this new SKU will get some kind of refresh within the type of a spec improve.
With out getting an excessive amount of into the precise artwork path of the pictures (I’ve by no means actually understood experimental vogue, tbh), let’s simply take a look at the expertise earlier than us. Pei has usually argued that Nothing goals to do issues in a different way, creating an ecosystem that’s open to all and designed to shake up the established order. With out particulars on the Ear (Stick), it is tough to essentially make any criticisms of the corporate’s implementation of the philosophy…nonetheless, the Ear (Stick) seems in contrast to another TWS case from a serious firm. Additionally they open in a different way by rotating the clear outer cylinder in order that the cutout on it matches the TWS earbuds within the internal cylinder.
Maybe there’s additionally an ecosystem perform at play (who is aware of, the headphone case may additionally unlock the Tesla or one thing), although one factor stands out… the corporate has touted the cellphone’s (1) skill to reverse cost units corresponding to TWS headphones. by merely putting them on high of the phone coil (1). This appears unlikely with the Ear (Stick), given its cylindrical form, it should probably roll proper off the cellphone.
With this announcement, Nimic is predicted to disclose extra particulars in regards to the Ear (Stick) over time. In any case, the corporate has mastered the artwork of the reveal, strategically leaking snippets to followers and media… just like the Glyph Interface first debuted in March, 4 months earlier than its July launch!
