Ear (2) black, Nothing X Advanced Equaliser and all-new Noise Reduction for Ear (Stick)

There’s a lot of noise to be made about Nothing audio right now. Not only are we launching Ear (2) in a new colour, we’ve made significant upgrades to our Nothing X software so you can hear music exactly how you want to hear it.


Ear (2) black


Dark and mighty. Hi-Res Audio Certified for studio-quality sound, anywhere. With next-level Active Noise Cancellation. Now with a whole new attitude. 


Advanced Equaliser


Our new Advanced Equaliser lets you dive deeper into sound with more customisation through a simple graphical interface. Go beyond treble and bass with Q Factor and frequency control. Create multiple profiles for different genres, then share with your friends via QR codes. Available for Ear (2) and Ear (stick). 


Ear (stick) Noise Reduction

Another thing. If you’re an Ear (stick) user, we have a special update just for you. Hear the distractions fade away with our new Noise Reduction feature. To turn on, just connect your Ear (stick) to Nothing X then head to Device Settings > Noise Reduction.
