Audio technology company Nothing is set to release its third truly wireless earbuds, the Ear (2), on March 22. Ahead of the launch, the company has been dropping teasers to generate hype and has recently revealed some details about the upcoming earbuds.
The Ear (2) will come equipped with the LHDC 5.0 audio codec, Hi-Res Audio streaming, and AAC and SBC codecs. The focus is on ensuring even higher audio quality compared to the Ear (1), the predecessor of the Ear (2).
Furthermore, Ear (2) will be dust and Water-resistant with an IP54 rating, an improvement from Ear (1) which had an IPX4 rating. The information was revealed in an interview with Forbes, where Nothing’s CEO Carl Pei shared that the company will use improved manufacturing techniques for a better IP rating.
