Nothing Ear (Stick) Review Highlights

Ketan Pratap

Nothing Ear (Stick) design seems to be inspired by lipstick. It features a cylindrical case which when rolled reveals half-in-ear buds. It has a transparent design just like the Ear (1) and looks beautiful.


The new Nothing X app has improved massively. It is more refined and feels cleaner with a simple UI. It has in-built equaliser and support to change control gestures.

App Support

There are several features in the app like option to enable or disable in-ear detection, low lag mode, and find my earbuds. These are IP54 rated.


Nothing Ear (Stick) is good if you love balanced music output with more attention to detail. However, the bass punch and Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) are missing.

Sound Quality

Nothing Ear (Stick) lasted five hours for us on a single charge and offered us another playback of 15-16 hours with 40% battery left in the case. It lacks wireless charging support.


The Nothing Ear (Stick) is a balanced package at Rs 8,499 that appeal to those who love half in-ear design. It is one of the unique TWS earbuds that you can buy for under Rs 10,000.
