Nothing like you’ve seen before, the raw beauty of ear (1)’s stripped down aesthetic features transparency to expose the engineering, including microphones, magnets and circuit boards. Everything that is ear (1) is there with purpose – from the instantly recognisable red colour signal for ‘Right’ to the case’s playful fisheye dip that helps secure the buds. Not only does it look distinct, Nothing ear (1) was designed for advanced comfort. It is extremely comfortable to wear for long hours. Each earbud weighs in at just 4.7g, and delivers pressure-relieving vents, an ergonomic fit, and three customisable liquid silicone tips.
Pure sound starts with a big driver, 11.6mm to be exact. The audiophiles at Teenage Engineering painstakingly dialled in the software and hardware for balanced bass, mid, and treble performance. Behind the scenes, the latest Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity ensures you never miss a beat.
Active Noise Cancellation on ear (1) uses three high definition mics to bring your music, films, and podcasts into sharp focus. Use Light mode for moderate noise cancellation and Maximum mode for noisier environments like when on an airplane or at the office. When you’re ready to let the world back in, activate Transparency mode. For loud and clear calls, Clear Voice Technology was specially-developed for ear (1) to reduce distractive background noise, like wind.
