Carl Pei’s Nothing brand to debut with Ear 1 earbuds, to Launch in June

New Delhi: Former OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei’s newly-launched venture, Nothing Technologies on Tuesday announced that the first product from the company will be an earbuds called Ear 1, that aims to create a niche space in the highly-competitive earphones market.

‘Ear 1′ will arrive on the market in June’. However, the company has not revealed an exact date of the products’s launch yet.

But if we look back the Concept 1 teaser released back in March hints that the new earbuds will be a transparent and tiny tobacco pipe-shaped earbud with a small stem.

“It’s even stranger when we step back and see that ‘Ear 1’ is only the beginning, the first step in a long and exciting journey ahead,” Pei said in a statement.

“Ear 1 is just the start. Design is still top secret but what we can tell you is that Ear 1 combines notes of transparency, iconic form, and refined functionality,” Pei added.

The London-based company recently announced the Stockholm-based firm Teenage Engineering as its founding partner. Teenage Engineering has been developing highly acclaimed products for people who love sound, music and design.

Pei said that the company believes “the earphones market was begging for differentiation, a space where we can elevate design and deliver value from day one.”
