Here’s how much you’ll pay for the Nothing Ear Stick in Australia

You can't help but respect a brand that doesn't put "buds", "air", or "pro" in a headphone name.

Nothing - the new brand from OnePlus founder Carl Pei - has launched its second pair of earbuds, the Ear Stick.

In some ways, the Ear Sticks are pretty similar to Apple's 3rd generation AirPods. Rather than featuring silicon tips like the AirPods Pro, the Ear Sticks have an open fit. This can lead to improved comfort, but can come at the cost of noise isolation. As such, the Ear Sticks don't have noise-cancellation.

They can however measure the shape of your ear to counterbalance any bass that may have been lost due to the open fit. 

The Ear Sticks offer up to seven hours of listening time and three hours of call time per charge. The case offers up to another 22 hours of charge. Naturally, it has the same nostalgia-inducing transparent aesthetic as other Nothing products, like the Phone 1.

Nothing says the case is inspired by lipstick silhouettes, and has a unique twist-to-open mechanism.

As with the first Nothing earbuds - the Ear 1 - the Ear Stick will deliver to Australia. Pre-orders are now open ahead of a November 4 release date, and you'll pay $179. This makes them slightly more affordable than the Ear 1, which recently had a price rise to $219. They previously retailed for $149.
