A good set of true wireless headphones, which deliver a strong overall performance and a distinctive design on a relatively modest budget. The audio is pleasingly precise, Active Noise Cancellation works well, and they are very comfortable to wear whether you’re being active or at rest.

The Ear 1s are the new hypebeast earbuds and have a fun air of freshness. But right now, their individual parts — sound quality, noise cancellation, etc. — fall short of excellence and leave plenty of reason for sticking with one of those “boring” established players.

The Nothing Ear (1)’s transparent design will grab your attention, but it’s the comfy fit, balanced sound, useful features and low price that will hold it.

That said, if you’re after a pair of refreshingly different, but instantly recognisable headphones that work consistently well, sound great, have excellent noise cancellation, good call quality and excellent fit, it’s clear that you no longer need to spend more than £99.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained: Nothing Ear (1) has the specifications to become a budget headphone contender, but the sound is a good step below class-leading.

The Nothing ear (1) combine outstanding sound quality with a fun see-through design that makes them stand out. They do a great job reducing background noise, and feature Qi wireless charging as well as an IPX4 rating for workouts. There are a few downsides: you won’t find AptX HD, the battery life isn’t on par with rivals, and there’s no assistant integration, but as an overall value, the ear (1) get a lot right.

The Nothing ear (1) screams “first generation product,” for better and for worse. The striking transparent design is divisive and the battery life is average, but with impeccable sound and stellar call quality, Nothing is on the right track.

I have quibbles, and in spite of months of excited teases, the Ear (1) buds aren’t going to turn the overcrowded category upside down. But it’s always exciting to see a new company enter the consumer hardware space — and deliver a solid first product out of the game. It’s an idiosyncratic take on the category at a nice price from a company worth keeping an eye on.

The Ear 1 buds are an impressive debut device. Nothing’s first product launch is all about selling you on its cool — the company offered a limited run of hardware on StockX that seemed plainly targeted at Hypebeasts and early adopters. The design is compelling, and even the specifications are impressive at this price point. Nothing needs to improve on connectivity hiccups and sound quality if it wants to be mentioned in the same tier as Apple, Samsung and Sony, but it’s a bold start.

It’s rare to find a pair of earbuds as accomplised as the Nothing Ear 1 in the affordable market segment. They look unique, sound great, and are reliable enough to use day-in day-out.
