Nothing takes a strategy away from its founder Carl Pei previous concert on OnePlus: dribbling technical details before a product launch. The startup has revealed that its Ear 1 real wireless headphones will include active noise cancellation at three microphones at a price of $ 99 (£ 99). Which is not dramatically more affordable than rivals with value for money like Amazon second-gen Echo Buds, but it’s certainly low enough to grab your attention if you’re aware of the costs.
The company will formally unveil Earella 1 at a launch event on July 27th. To date, the shoots are known to include a partially transparent one Adolescent Engineering conceives and prides itself on “cutting-edge specifications,” although it is not clear what it entails beyond the ANC.
The challenge, as you can guess, is to provide a quality that corresponds to the hype. ANC will help isolate music and podcasts, but it won’t matter so much if the sound quality is just so good. Nothing will prove that it can offer a solid sound at its asking price, especially if it has to compete against those of Echo Buds or Google Pixel Buds A.
