In an in-depth feature story for Forbes, Carl Pei, CEO and founder of Nothing, provided additional information on the forthcoming Ear (2) in addition to previously known information about Nothing Ear (1) and Phone (1).
LHDC Audio 5.0 and an IP54 rating are confirmed for Nothing Ear (2) – What do we know
LHDC 5.0 (Low Latency HD Audio Codec), which the new wearable audio supports, enables high-resolution audio to be played in its magnificent glory. Pei claimed he asked Spotify to update their collection to LHDC because it is a codec that broadcasts higher-quality audio via Bluetooth.
Moreover, Ear (2) will have a restricted ingress protection (IP54) certification against splashes of water and dust.
Sales of the Nothing Ear (1) in the United States accounted for a third of the 600,000 total units sold, and Pei confirmed that the next Nothing phone would also be available in the region. He predicted that it would be “a pretty tremendous opportunity for the corporation,” in 2023.
The business announced on Twitter that the staff of professionals working on the Ear (2) expanded by 30% to 700 individuals. About 120 phones and computers were utilised to test the new wearable, a 52% hike from the 70 devices used to test the Ear (1).
On March 22, The Nothing Ear (2) is expected to arrive, and everyone interested can watch the launch live online.
