London-based consumer tech brand Nothing is well-known for its Ear (1) earbuds and Phone (1), which both utilized the brand's signature transparent design in an effort to demonstrate that there can be alternative gadgets to the ubiquitous brands. Today, they announced the new-and-improved earbuds, the Ear (2), which feature super customizable audio wrapped in an unbelievably aesthetically-pleasing design.

"We are excited to introduce Ear (2) as a significant upgrade to our debut product Ear (1), which sold over 600,000 units," said Carl Pei, CEO and Co-founder of Nothing. "With Ear (2), we've re-engineered everything from the ground up and utilized cutting-edge technology to create the ultimate personal listening experience."

Essentially every aspect of Ear (1) was upgraded for Ear (2), from the sound, to the noise canceling, battery life and connectivity.

The noise cancelling capabilities were revised for this iteration; Ear (2) is engineered with Nothing's best noise cancellation technology yet, achieving up to 40 dB of noise reduction. Personalized Active Noise Cancellation is tailored to the exact shape of a user's ear canal, and Adaptive Mode automatically adjusts the noise reduction level based on your environment in real-time.

One of the unique features of Ear (2) is the Personal Sound Profile, which is built when users complete a hearing test through the brand's app. The buds will then adjust the equalizer settings accordingly in real time to optimize audio quality.

From a performance perspective, Ear (2) can deliver up to 36 hours of music playback after a full charge of the charging case (with ANC turned off). With fast charge, it can deliver up to 8 hours on a 10-minute charge.
