Carl Pei's new tech start-up Nothing debuted in January 2021; now, it has revealed that it is ready to launch its first-ever product, a pair of TWS earbuds. The company has chosen to keep the design of these Ear 1 wearables under wraps for now, but does suggest they will stand out on the market. They are now slated to launch in June 2021, although pricing and availability remains a mystery.

OnePlus' co-founder and ex-CEO Carl Pei last outlined his new brand's plans for its inaugural TWS earbuds about 3 months ago, with nothing to hear about them since then. However, as the executive now notes in the latest company blog-post: "For those hoping for a disappearing act overnight, Ear 1 falls short". These wearables' relatively stripped-down name might also reflect their design ethic.

The accessories will apparently represent "the starting point that will define the artistry, confidence and craftsmanship that will carry our products and services for years to come". The latest official blog post on the subject hints that they might have a vaguely AirPod-like stemmed design; however, there are also indications they have little chance of resembing the concept earbud recently showcased by Nothing.

Then again, this still leaves the consumer guessing at the price of these Ear 1s. Pei has asserted that they will "deliver value from day one"; however, as a comparatively new entrant in this market, they may be less capable of offering a price that might go well with this statement.
