Nothing has recently unveiled an all-new Black Edition of its ear (1) TWS earbuds, which is confirmed to be arriving in Malaysia starting next week. Apart from sporting a different colour theme, the earbuds come with the same specifications, features, and price tag as the original variant that was released locally in October.
As part of the company’s collaboration with Crossover, the Black Edition will first be available in Malaysia starting 8 December 2021 as a limited drop via the apparel brand’s online store and physical stores across the nation. Nothing notes that open sales for the new colour theme via its official Shopee store and authorised retailers will commence from 17 December onwards. As mentioned earlier, this version retains the same RM499 price as the original release.
To recap, the Nothing ear (1) is equipped with 11.6mm graphene-based dynamic drivers tuned by Swedish audio brand Teenage Engineering, and comes with a total of six high-definition microphones (three on each side) for voice calls and ANC (active noise cancelling) capabilities. It also features touch panels for different controls on each side, three different ANC modes, In-Ear Detection, Fast Pairing, simultaneous multi-device support, and comes with an IPX4 rating in terms of water and dust resistance.
The earbuds are capable of lasting up to 5.7 hours of listening time on a single charge, and up to 34 hours with the included charging case. Nothing says users can quickly gain around 1.2 hours of playback with just 10-minutes of charging via the case. Additionally, the Nothing ear (1) comes with wireless charging capability and is compatible with Qi-based wireless chargers.
