Review Summary

Think innovation, think “Nothing”. Nothing is known for its innovative products. Following the suit, the brand launched its much-hyped product Nothing Ear Stick recently. It’s the second TWS from the brand, and just after its release, the product received a mixed review. So, I thought, why not clear the air of mystery with the Nothing Ear Stick review.

The TWS has received a massive positive response for its design but can the same be said for its audio quality? How clear is the sound? Are you getting ANC with it? And most importantly, is the premium price fully justified for its features? I will tell you all of this in this Nothing Ear Stick review.

Nothing Ear Stick Specs At a Glance

As we move ahead with the Nothing Ear Stick review, let me walk you through its specs:

  • Connectivity: Bluetooth V5.2
  • Supported OS: Android, iOS
  • Battery: Up to 29 hours of playback time
  • Weight: 50g


Nothing Ear Stick Design And Comfort

First thing first, the Nothing Ear Stick comes with an excellent unique design. The case features a cylindrical shape that can fit in your palm perfectly. Unlike other TWS, there is no box-like case here. Instead, at first glance, the TWS appears like lipstick.

On the case, you get to see the brand’s name written. And on the bottom, a USB Type C port is given. Rotate the lid from the bottom, and the case will open. Likewise, rotating it backwards will close the case. The earbud is placed inside the case.

The earbuds also feature a unique design. You don’t get the bud with a rubber tip here. But don’t worry, the buds fit perfectly in the ears, and there is no chance it will fall down, even if you run or jump. Furthermore, the buds weigh just 4.4 grams which makes them super light in weight and are quite comfortable when in the ears.

Together with the case, the TWS weighs around 50 grams which is not much. The compact design also makes them fit in your jeans pocket easily. The earbuds are designed to withstand light water, dust and sweat and come marked with an IP54 rating.

Nothing Ear Stick Audio Quality

I cannot complete my Nothing Ear Stick review without talking about its audio quality. I really liked the audio quality when compared to the Nothing Ear (1). The TWS comes with 12.6mm drivers which results in great bass, no matter what kind of audio you are listening to.

However, there are instances when at higher or full volume, you might feel the audio leaks. This means, at high volumes, the sound comes outside of the earbuds, making it audible to the person sitting or standing just next to you. But the crisp audio quality can’t be unseen. You get to hear all the punch and beats quite perfectly.

However, the buds lack ANC, which can be a major drawback at this price point, especially when the competitors are offering the same. Leaving that aside, the overall audio quality you get with the Nothing Ear Stick is simply decent.

Nothing Ear Stick Battery Life and Charging

Nothing Ear Stick features a 350mAh battery and claims to be offering up to 7 hours of playback time on a single charge. While the talk time is 3 hours. With the case, the battery life further increases by up to 29 hours, and the talk time offered is that 12 hours.

The listening time is the same on both paper and when used practically. Also, the TWS comes with fast charging support. This means you get up to 9 hours of battery life in just 10 minutes of charge. Now that is a great point for the premium price you are paying. The case can charge the buds fully around four times.

Nothing Ear Stick Features and Connectivity

Lastly, I will talk about the connectivity and features in my Nothing Ear Stick review. The TWS features the latest Bluetooth version and is known for reliable and stable connections without any drops. The buds are compatible with both Android and iOS devices.

Pairing the buds is quite easy. Simply turn on the Bluetooth of your device and take the buds out of the case. You will see the bud’s name appearing in your available devices section. Tap on it, and the devices will be connected. If you are using a Nothing phone, you can experience a lot of features like customizing audio quality and more.

However, if you don’t have the Nothing phone, you don’t need to worry at all. The earbud has a companion app Nothing X. Simply install it on your device, and you can experience all the great features of the app. Customize the audio as per your requirements.

Coming to the controls offered by the buds. The Nothing Ear Stick is not touch-sensitive, instead, it is press-sensitive. Pressing the right earbud will increase the volume while pressing the left bud will decrease it. All in all, the Nothing Ear Stick is easier in terms of controls.

That’s my take on the Nothing Ear Stick review. The TWS has a premium design that can level up your style quotient, undoubtedly. Talking about the price, it will appear high to some of the audience, but the crisp audio quality and attractive design fill the gap. Although, if you want a TWS with ANC, the Nothing Ear Stick might not satisfy you. So, in my honest opinion, the Nothing Ear Stick is all about unique design with decent audio quality.
