Following the release of Nothing‘s highly-acclaimed ear (1) wireless earbuds in August, the Carl Pei-fronted brand has returned to release the listening device in an all-new, black colorway.

The Nothing ear (1) earbuds, which are listed for $99 USD, supply up to 34 hours of listening and deliver top-notch sound quality via an 11.6mm driver created in partnership with Teenage Engineering. Weighing just 4.7g, each earbud is equipped with pressure-relieving vents, ergonomic design and three liquid silicone tips for customized fitting.

Additionally, users can turn on the “active noise cancellation” feature to “capture and cancel” unwanted background noise. When finished, users can revert to “transparent mode,” which grants the return of surrounding noise, with the simple touch of a button.

“Nothing is here to make a positive difference. Our newly carbon-neutral ear (1) is the first step in our journey to sustainability,” said Pei, CEO and co-founder of Nothing, in a statement. “With ear (1) we’ve proven that new ideas, from design to distribution, can resonate with users and bring back the sense of excitement that’s been lacking in our industry. We hope this black edition raises a few more eyebrows in the months to come and that more tech brands add carbon transparency labeling to their products.”

The device itself boasts a high-tech appearance. “We believe in windows, not walls,” the brand writes on its website. “We gave ear (1) transparent veneers to highlight and celebrate the craftsmanship underneath, and reveal the raw beauty of our technology.”

Prior to official sales, Nothing will release the first 100 units of ear (1) black edition, which will be individually engraved from one to 100. The limited-edition devices will be available for purchase from the Nothing Kiosk, a limited installation that will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. GMT beginning December 4 at Seven Dials, Covent Garden in London.

The Nothing ear (1) black limited edition wireless earbuds will then be available for purchase beginning at 9 a.m. ET on December 8 on HBX. Sign up to get notified about the release here.

Take a look at the all-new colorway above.

Elsewhere, Facebook and Instagram messages won’t have full encryption until 2023.
