The image shared on all the company’s social networks shows that the headphones must have a cylindrical caseand it is also composed of transparent materials.
Commenting on the matter, Nothing claims that it used makeup equipment cases as inspiration, and the format even facilitates carrying it in the bag.
For now, the material still does not reveal the final design of the headphones, but everything indicates that they should have a small stem. That is, something very similar to the brand’s first wireless headphones.
The biggest difference is that the Nothing Ear 1 Stick may end up losing support for noise canceling technology and even wireless charging. That’s because the focus of the devices is the final price.
So far, there is no official release date.

Despite releasing the Nothing Phone 1, the manufacturer did not announce its next wireless headset at the last conference. That’s because all the spotlight was directed at the smartphone.
However, according to sources who have access to the company’s plans, the Nothing Ear 1 Stick is getting closer and closer to its release. Commenting on the matter, Mukul Sharma said that the headphones are already being tested by some people in Asian and European markets.
In addition to the simpler variant known as the Stick, Nothing has also been testing a second model which is being called the Nothing Ear (2). However, there are not many details available about it.
Speaking a little more about the Nothing Ear 1 Stick’s specs, this headphone will not have active noise cancellation. Even so, it comes with IP54 certification, Bluetooth 5.2, autonomy of up to seven hours on a single charge and an additional 30 hours with the case.
For now, Nothing does not comment on the leak of information, nor does it give a release forecast for its next wireless headphones.
