Nothing has officially announced that the Nothing Ear (2) TWS earphones will be launched on March 21. Now, the company’s CEO, Carl Pei, stated in an interview with Forbes that the earbuds and the Phone (2) that will be released later this year will deliver something more premium.
Also, he stated that the earbuds will have an IP54 dust and water resistance rating, comparable to the Ear (Stick). Recall that the Ear (1) was rated IPX4.
It has also been revealed that The Ear (2) supports LHDC 5.0, which offers high-resolution audio streaming. Only the AAC audio codec is supported by the first two earbuds from the firm.
The firm claimed in a series of tweets that the stability of the Ear (2) would be better because it had been tested on more smartphones than the Ear (1), which had only been tested on 70. According to the report, the number of individuals working on the earphones has climbed by 30%, reaching over 700 expertise, including an architect and a tooling specialist.
In response, the firm stated:
According to earlier reports, it would allow wireless charging and come with individualised ANC, dual pairing, 11.6 mm drivers, and a similar transparent design for the earphones and case.
The most recent rumor claims a playing duration of 6 hours and a playback time of up to 36 hours without the case and ANC, which is somewhat better than the predecessor. It also claims that the device will weigh 4.5 grammes, which makes it 0.2 grammes lighter.
Before the Ear (2) is officially unveiled next week, we should get more information in the upcoming days.
