When we talk about the design, we can not ignore the color because all the appearances depend on the color. The Nothing Ear 1 headphone has an entire transparent body with a white finish on the ear tips. 

The case of the headphone is transparent. The headphone design is pretty impressive but looks much similar to Apple’s earpods if we ignore the transparent design.

Build Quality:

Being a new brand, you may have questions over its build quality. The headphone, as usual, is made of plastic. As we said, the headphone is a bit transparent, so the company needs to focus on finishing the interior parts as an unfinished or untidy design may make an ugly impression on the users. Still, with good luck, the headphone passes this challenge.

Sound Performance:

Sound Performance is all you will need in a headphone, especially if you spend about 6k (INR) on a headphone.

And, in this case, Nothing Ear 1 has not disappointed us. The sound quality of this earbud is quite impressive. The sound quality of every earphone usually does depend on the drive size. 

This headphone has an 11.6 mm drive. This drive size is competitively enormous compared to most other earphones in this range. According to the view of price, it truly justifies its price and gives the whole value-for-money experience. The bass quality is also good. The stereo output is almost excellent.

Battery Backup:

No matter what profession you are in, no matter whether you stay in your house or stay outside your house most of the day, none of us want to keep on mobiles and wireless headphones with the charger all through the day. 

Particularly with wireless devices, we want that this device stays with all with just a single charge. That’s why whenever you are purchasing a wireless earphone, you should always check whether this device has a good battery backup or not. 

In this case, the Nothing Ear 1 gives about 25 hours of backup time in just a single charge. That’s the scenario when ANC is turned on. But if you turn ANC off, the battery backup time gets boosted for about 6 hours, and that gives you about 30 hours of battery backup time.

It is a great battery backup time and the best in class.

If you are a traveller, you must go for this type of battery.


The Nothing 1 Ear headphone is genuinely wireless. The main connectivity option that is available with this earphone is Bluetooth.

It is one of the best truly wireless headphones in its price range.

Indeed wireless stereo technology has been used in this earphone.

Auto Sync Feature:

The earphone is available with an auto-sync feature.

The earphone can be easily synced with your mobile with the powerful app from NothingNothing. This app is available for both IOS and Android platforms. 

This app has some cool features. With this app, you can set the bass and some features to their extreme range. It’s great for a company to launch an earphone with All-in-One features.


It all stops for a buyer to buy a wireless earbud when they know that it is a heavy product. Companies are in the race to deliver the highest headphone, and NothingNothing is not an exception. 

Before some days, if you could get earbuds with as low as 20 gm of weight, that would be a great one. But, nowadays, earbuds have become more compact, and most of them are under just 10 grams.

But, this Nothing ear 1 earbud is even more lightweight. The earbuds weigh just 4.70 grams. And, this number blew my mind. The total weight of this earbud, along with its case, is about 57.4 grams.

The brand:

One of the significant drawbacks while purchasing these earbuds may be the barn. Because NothingNothing is a brand new brand, and we do now know much about this brand.

Do not worry; the problem with this earbud is not in its performance or physical parts; it is with the services related to this product.

But as this is a very new brand, the beard may not be an adequate number of service centers all around the country. If this is not a problem for you, you can go for this earbud.
