    Mate, you just don't get it and that's fine.
    The design is the absolute best part of these headphones. I'm currently using WH-1000XM4's and I had no intention of buying earbuds, mainly because I have the XM4 and partially because I didn't like the designs of the main earbuds on the market. Something was lacking, something was off and I was waiting for earbuds to excite me. When I first saw the Ear 1 I thought that is it, this is what I've been waiting for. Their marketing and visual presentation screamed techy, expensive, designer, premium, unique, so I immediately assumed that they will be as expensive as the AirPods. Turns out, I was shocked, they were one of the cheaper on the market and there was huge hype around them. This happens rarely, for something to have the design + the quality and actually be cheap. In a world where we start embracing futuristic clothing and technology, those headphones fit right on the bleeding edge of the trends that are yet to become commercial. Where the new trend in street wear slowly, but surely becomes Tech Wear, big brands like Nike have a tech wear division, the ACG, and brands like H&M and Zara imitate their products to sell even cheaper looking and not very functional tech wear. Not to mention Nike's ACG products are on the entry, cheap level of tech wear. We have extremely experimental shoes like the Nike Road Warrior, just google it, and the Ear 1 fit absolutely perfectly in this trend and they do it stylishly. Their case is just a cherry on top of their design, the case completes the whole package. Their design is half the reason they're selling so well and I think whoever doesn't get it is just not yet on the hype train. Tech Wear and futuristic look in...everything, is legit the future and Nothing knows this. We even have brands like ACRONYM that gain more popularity with each day and their items are pretty expensive. For example, the coat of the main character in Death Stranding is designed by ACRONYM and they even sold real ones on their website. Currently you can find one for around 3000$+, yep.

    Returned the product to Flipkart. This is horrible product. The right earbuds kept on draining battery far faster than left one. After one phone call(10mins) right bud came to 50% from 100%. When the left one stayed at 90%. that's the reason i returned it cause the right earbud kept in switching off every 45 mins or an hour. Rest features are good but this is unexceptable.

    I really love the design of Nothing Ear 1 and it fits well, but my case started getting scratches quickly. I had to buy skins from Gadgetshieldz to save them from getting any more scratches.
    Battery drains when you use calls with ANC
    When I am listening to Heavy bass I couldn't get that punchy effect fully
    I tried Gaming, latency could be better
    It doesn't support Google Assistant or Alexa
    As of now, the battery lasts for more than 4hrs

    The idea of a high pitched sound to find your earphones makes me nervous. What if your phone was in your pocket and the screen turned on and hit the button to turn on this feature while they are in your ear. Its possible, I've pulled my phone out of my pocket and seen a few apps opened unintentionally. Even if this feature is somehow disabled when someone's using them, I'd still not trust that. Imagine another person (like a child) was using them and you went looking for your, nothings.. ouch. Don't get me wrong nothing, its a very considerate idea, and that is SOMETHING (see what I did there). On the bright side, plenty of new vines of people freaking out their pets (sarcasm). Are they still called vines?

    Doesn't the fact that it's vented inherently mean it will leak sound? Probably not as much as buds or hybrids like earpods but still significantly more than most IEMs.

    So he listens to lossless music on Tidal with a pair of Bluetooth earphones and finds a difference … I call bullshit. You can’t make out a difference via Bluetooth. I should have understood his BS from the clickbait title itself. Mrwhosetheboss more like Mrwhosetheliar ….

    A comment about the audio quality:
    It makes absolutely zero impact trying to play lossless audio through Bluetooth buds.
    I can't find the specs on the ear1 but they probably both use the AAC codec since it's long been the most used Bluetooth codec standard and if they used another codec they would have listed that on their website.
    Spotify generally uses quality which is ever so slightly "worse" than the best AAC quality that codec can handle, so maybe you heard that. It could also be that you just heard the difference in how Tidal (or more accurately, MQA) Masters and EQs their music (since MQA is lossy and tends to be louder than non-MQA sources like the CD loudness wars).
    Whatever the case, it's not a good benchmark. Besides, the reason for the ear1s sounding more forward is because the ear1 uses a V-shape equalizer, not because they better separate instruments by having a better soundstage.
    V-shape means ear1 boosts the bass and the treble to give the impression that it's more detailed without actually being more detailed and actually muffle the parts that aren't boosted (or- hide the fact they used cheap drivers and such). This audio is generally regarded as more fun, but also more tiring and goes against the way they artist meant something to be heard.

      As someone who owns multiple bluetooth headphones, has a seperate HDD for lossless albums, owns bunch of high-end headphones and amplifiers, you cannot be more wrong on "it makes zero impact trying to play lossless audio through bluetooth buds". It's all about the source and having to do less transcoding. Try converting a flac to AAC and then do it with 384kbit MP3 to AAC if you don't believe me. Ear1 is not v-shaped, they actually aimed at becoming the most flat-lined buds out there (look up the frequency response tests). Could have done at least 1 minute of googling...
