The Nothing Ear (2) earbuds have customizable features including a listening test provided by hearing experts, Mimi. This test allows the control app to adjust the EQ settings based on the user’s hearing profile and fine-tune the EQ in real-time depending on the content being listened to. The earbuds use Bluetooth 5.3 for wireless connectivity and codec compatibility includes SBC, AAC, and LHDC 5.0. The Ear (2) earbuds have 11.6mm polyurethane/graphene full-range dynamic drivers and offer high-resolution audio quality up to 24-bit/192kHz.
The earbuds deliver a vibrant and pacy sound with excellent detail levels, texture and timbre, and good rhythmic expression. The Ear (2) earbuds are equally good at presenting recordings with commonality instead of discrete occurrences. The top-end frequency response is assertive and has an excessive amount of shine and bite that can be overwhelming at high volumes. Dynamic headroom is considerable and the harmonic details of a recording are preserved with good clarity.
The active noise cancellation is well-implemented, reducing external noise without disrupting the sound quality of the earbuds. The Ear (2) earbuds have an individual and unique design that makes them stand out from other earbuds in the market. Overall, the Nothing Ear (2) earbuds offer an enjoyable listening experience with effective noise cancellation and a bespoke control app.
