Nothing Ear (2) launches in Singapore with improved ANC, LHDC 5.0 audio support

Nothing Ear (2) true wireless earbuds.

The Nothing Ear (2) was officially launched today (23 March 2023), succeeding the two-year-old true wireless earbuds that started Nothing’s foray into consumer electronics devices.

While it comes with the same driver sizes (11.6mm) for pushing audio into your ears, Nothing Ear (2) now has Hi-Res Audio certification and LHDC 5.0 support for higher-than-SBC audio bitrate via Bluetooth playback (24-bit/192 kHz, up to 1 Mbps). 

According to Nothing, other physical improvements that grant clearer sound and better airflow to the Ear (2) are its redesigned polyurethane and graphene materials, and renewed dual-chamber design.

The Nothing Ear (2) also comes with Dual Connection (Nothing’s marketing name for Bluetooth Multipoint), allowing users to pair the buds to two devices simultaneously and flit between both for their audio needs. 

Other features include Personal Sound Profile (Nothing X app-based equaliser that recommends listening profiles based on a hearing test); Clear Voice Technology (background noise reduction in voice calls), and 40dB Active Noise Cancellation. There’s also Low Lag Mode inside the Nothing X app, but gamers who pair the buds with Nothing Phone (1) will have Low Lag Mode automated for them.

The company said that Nothing Ear (2) offers up to a combined 36 hours of music playback via its carrying case and buds (ANC off), on top of fast-charge support (eight hours playback after 10 minutes of charging). It also has 2.5W wireless charging and reverse change compatible devices.

The buds are rated at IP54 against dust and water, while the case is rated at IP55. They also have Fast Pair support for Android devices, and Swift Pair for Microsoft Windows devices.


Singapore pricing, where to buy

Nothing Ear (2) retails S$199. For a start, the buds will go on a limited run for early birds at Limited Edt. Demo units will available at select Challenger outlets (Bugis Junction, VivoCity, and Causeway Point).

The buds officially go on sale at all Nothing authorised retail partners in Singapore on 8 April 2023. Here are its official Lazada and Shopee storefronts.
