Nothing Ear Stick - Beauty Without Brain

Written by Rahul Makwana


Nothing Ear Stick is priced at Rs 8499 in India while its available at $99 in the USA.

Build and design

The Buds and Case are made from 100% plastic but used plastic looks and feels premium just like Nothing ear 1.

Now, there was no need for an Ear stick but now it’s here without Silicone Tips. Again, there are some users who don’t like Silicone Tips and some will buy them because of the design.

If you ask me,

I will always choose Silicone Tips over non because when you have Silicone Tips, it fits well in ears and that's a fact.

Still, if you're someone who wanted to buy Apple Airpods but also, didn't wanted to spend Rs 19,999 then you can consider the Nothing Ear Stick.

Nothing is coping Apple from the start, and they want some of the Apple users. I mean, just look at the Nothing Phone 1 and Ear 1 Design.

One more thing,

You know how Nothing Ear 1 has touch gesture control but that’s gone with Nothing Ear Stick because Nothing is using a physical button in Ear Stick.


If you don’t like the bass then you might like the Nothing Ear Stick sound quality because the buds don’t have the Silicone Tips which is Con as well as the Pro, it depends on how you look at it.

Personally, I don’t like the TWS earbuds without Silicone Tips. When buds have Silicone Tips, it fits well in my ears and I don’t get anxious that they will fall away when I go for a wall or run.

The bass...

The buds should have bass but when there are no Silicone Tips, you won’t get the proper bass.

Now, I won’t talk much, it’s a simple thing, if you love the extra bass or even normal bass then it’s better to skip the Ear Stick.

Also, if you like Nothing’s design then you can always consider Nothing Ear 1 which is also available at almost same price in India.

Call Quality 

The Buds has the three microphone and its the same as Nothing Ear 1, nothing changed here...

The microphones are good but if you're in crowed places then it might get hard for someone on call to hear your voice.

If there is not background noise or little bit of noise, then the microphones works the best without any problems.

Maybe software update can improve the microphone quality, so let's wait and see...

One More Thing...

Nothing Ear app is now called Nothing X, the reason is, Nothing will add new products, and to manage everything they need a single app. So that’s the reason why the new name but the design remains the same.

Battery Life

Because of the missing ANC, the Ear Stick will provide up to 28 hours of battery life while the single bud will provide between 5 to 6 hours of battery life, depending on how you use it.

For example, if you keep the buds volume between 50% to 60% then you will get between 5 to 6 hours of battery life but if you keep the volume between 80% to 100% then the battery life will drop to 3.5 to 5 hours.


If money is not the issue and you wanted to try out a new design then do try Nothing Ear Stick otherwise, it’s better to save Rs 8,499 ($99).
