Recently we learnt that the Nothing ear (1) will get a new Black hue, via industry insider Ishan Agarwal. As of now, the truly-wireless earbuds are on offer in a single white hue. The Black variant at the time was most likely tipped to feature a similar transparent design, with the ear tips being black instead of white.
Nothing ear (1) Black Variant Image Leaked
Now leakster EvLeaks has released an image on Twitter showcasing the earbuds in Black, confirming that the difference is not that major, since the earbuds seem to feature the black silicone tips and the surrounding region is now black instead of white.
The transparent design, a key design element of the Nothing ear (1) still remains, so if you were waiting for the earbuds and were unsure if this was going to be present, worry not since Nothing is not deviating from the USP of the earbuds.
For those curious, the Nothing ear (1) features a Clear Voice technology, which according to Nothing allows for a reduction in the distractive background noise with EQ changes to tune the audio a bit more.
What Do We Know About the Earbuds?
The Nothing ear (1) earbuds, for those curious work with both Android and iOS devices, with the companion app offering users the ability to customize gestures to control playback.
The earbuds will connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth 5.2 and feature support for ANC or active noise cancelling of up to 40 dB. Three listening modes are present, namely Light, maximum and Transparency, with the latter two offering ANC and the ability for outside noise to get in.
The earbuds charge via USB Type-C with a case that has a 570 mAh battery, with the Nothing ear (1) featuring a 31 mAh battery on each bud. Nothing claims that the earbuds last 24 hours on a single charge with the case included with ANC on and 34 hours without ANC. Qi-wireless charging is also present.
In India, the earbud is available for Rs 6,999 on Flipkart.com, but it seems that a discount now sees the earbuds retailing for Rs 6,299, down Rs 700.
This comes after popular YouTuber Casey Neistat took to Twitter to ask the company to make the ear (1) earbuds in black, after he himself coloured the earbuds using a marker, to showcase how good the earbuds would look in the black hue. The white variant does seem really posh, but this new black variant will surely appeal to those who yearn for a stealthier look.
