It isn’t solely 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 just a brand new charging case for his or her current headphone design Final yr’s TWS.
I guess you could have quite a lot of questions. Don’t be concerned, neither do I. The announcement (or quite reveal) for the Ear (Stick) got here quite unexpectedly, with no poster or a keynote to mark its second. Unveiled as an adjunct at Chet Lo’s SS23 catwalk trend present, the Ear (Stick) seems to be a brand new case design for the Ear (1) Buds. In contrast to the previous case which is sq. in form, this one is identical form and dimension as a lipstick (or in the event you’re on the lookout 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 route of the photographs (I’ve by no means actually understood experimental trend, tbh), let’s simply have a look at the know-how earlier than us. Pei has usually argued that Nothing goals to do issues otherwise, 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…nevertheless, the Ear (Stick) appears to be like not like every other TWS case from a significant firm. Additionally they open otherwise 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 operate at play (who is aware of, the headphone case may also unlock the Tesla or one thing), although one factor stands out… the corporate has touted the cellphone’s (1) means to reverse cost gadgets resembling TWS headphones. by merely inserting them on high of the phone coil (1). This appears unlikely with the Ear (Stick), given its cylindrical form, it would seemingly 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!
