    Let's play
    Made for every part of every day, Ear (a) is for the music lovers.

    In signature Nothing fashion, Ear (a) evolves our transparent design but takes an iconic new direction with a fresh bubble design. Your pocket's new best friend.

    Ahead of the curve
    With its raised contours and bubble-like appearance, the case for Ear (a) takes inspiration from everyday pill packets.

    Slim new frame
    Featuring soft contours with a slimmer rectangular format. Extra comfortable for holding in hands or sliding into pockets. Still light as a feather with a total weight of 49.2 g, and just 4.8 g per earbud.

    Let’s go yellow
    With transparency, our products showcase the inner workings of technology. We apply the same philosophy to colour. If we strip back how colours are built, we are left with the primary colours. This led us to Ear (a) yellow. A vivid and playful audio product, capable of producing a sound that’s just as bright.

    Hear wherever you are

    Up to 45 dB
    Our strongest noise cancellation yet.
    So you can go from quiet rooms to busy streets without hearing a thing (other than what's playing).

    Smart Active Noise Cancellation
    Ear (a) automatically checks for noise leakage between the earbud and your ear canal, then applies more noise cancellation to make up for it. So you receive the best possible noise cancellation. Happens every time you put them in.

    Adaptive ANC
    Next-level escapism. Switch between 3 levels of noise cancellation. Or let Ear (a) take control. By selecting 'Adaptive' in the Nothing X app, Ear (a) automatically applies the right level of noise cancellation according to your surroundings in real time, so you don't have to.

    Extra deep, extra clear
    With a driver designed to protect each and every detail, high notes hit deeper and lows feel richer.

    Powerful 11 mm driver
    Clear, rich, punchy

    We've made our driver even more compact. With double the power than Ear (2), Ear (a) delivers an even deeper bass performance.

    The extra space gives sound waves more room to vibrate. With two new vents, airflow is improved inside the bud. For less distortion and richer overall clarity.

    Bass Enhance algorithm
    New depths

    Ear (a) enhances low frequencies in your music in real-time, elevating bass-heavy sounds so that you can hear every detail.

    Hi-Res Wireless Audio certified
    Powerfully pure

    To protect sound details, Ear (a) is Hi-Res Audio Certified for playback up to 990kbps and frequencies up to 24 bit/96 kHz.

    Compatible with the widely supported LDAC* codec for high-resolution streaming over Bluetooth. The result is a powerfully pure audio experience. Just how the artist intended.

    * Requires devices that support LDAC

    Play on and on and on
    All talk, all action. We’ve made space for a bigger battery without compromising on sound. So you can listen for longer.

    Clear Voice Technology
    Clear as day. Ear (a) isolates your voice from everyday distractions so calls on-the-go feel like face-to-face conversations. With a new talk mic and extra airway on the stem for wind to pass through, we’ve reduced interference by 60% compared to Ear (2).

    Up to 9.5 hours of music
    Compared to Ear (2), Ear (a) can deliver 40.5% more non-stop play time on a single charge. Or pop your earbuds back in the case and stretch listening time to over 42.5 hours (with ANC turned off).

    Fast Charge
    For speedy power-ups, Ear (a) can Fast Charge for 10 minutes and deliver 10 hours of music playback (with ANC turned off).

    Dual Connection
    Stay connected to two devices at the same time. Play music on your laptop then seamlessly switch to answer a call on your phone. Effortless.

    Low Lag mode
    Reduced audio lag for better gaming. Triggered automatically in Game Mode on a Nothing phone. With end-to-end latency at less than 120 ms.

    ChatGPT, integrated
    Ask, listen and learn from ChatGPT on-the-go. A first-of-its-kind integration, made for your Nothing ecosystem. Only on Nothing earbuds when connected to Nothing phones. Available on Phone (2) and coming soon to Phone (1) and Phone (2a) via software updates.
