Nothing borrows strategy from founder Carl Pei previous gig in OnePlus: dribbling of technical details before product presentation. The startup found it to be his Ear 1 makes wireless headphones will include active deforestation with three microphones for $ 99 (£ 99). It’s no more dramatically more affordable than rivals worth the money like Amazon’s Echo Buds of the second generation, but it is certainly low enough to attract your attention if you pay attention to costs.
The company will officially unveil Ear 1 at its July 27 launch. To date, the buds are known to include partially transparent buds Teenage Engineering design and will boast “leading specifications”, although it is not clear what this means outside the ANC.
As you might guess, the challenge is to provide a quality that matches the hype. ANC will help you isolate music and podcasts, but it won’t matter so much if the sound quality is just that. Nothing will have to show that it can provide solid sound at its price, especially if it competes with those like Echo Buds or Google’s Pixel buds A.
