Nothing Ear (2) IP rating, audio codec support revealed

Nothing posted a long Twitter thread, wherein the brand revealed some key specifications and features of the upcoming Nothing Ear (2). The Nothing Ear (2) will feature an IP54 rating, which will protect them against dust particles and water splashes, thereby ensuring that the TWS can be used during workout sessions and more such scenarios. Furthermore, the TWS will offer LHDC Audio 5.0 support, which is a codec that enables higher audio quality streaming over Bluetooth. Carl Pei even mentioned that the brand had contacted Spotify to update their library to LHDC. All this necessarily means that the Nothing Ear (2) will be able to play any certified Hi-Res audio seamlessly.

Nothing Ear (2) design, features (expected)

The Nothing Ear (2), as mentioned earlier, will resemble the Nothing Ear (1) in ways more than one. That said, we can expect the new TWS to feature a more compact design. The TWS will feature ANC, as per reports. There will also be a feature called “Transparency Mode”, which will let the outside noise in while the music is playing. The case and the earbuds will follow Nothing’s semi-transparent design language. Lastly, the Nothing Ear (2) will likely be able to pair with Android and iOS devices, and users will be able to do further customizations via the Nothing X app.
