Nothing ear, ear (a) firmware update

Nothing ear, being the more premium of the two, was the first to get the update. The version started rolling out for Nothing ear in the first week of May.

The same update is now live for the more affordable Nothing ear (a). The primary focus of the version update is improving the transparency mode.

According to Nothing, the new update makes the ambient sound more natural. It also makes voices of the user and surrounding people clearer.

In addition, the update optimizes the Bass Enhance toggle for a richer bass experience. It is also said to reduce audio stutters in the earbuds.

Nothing is rolling out the update gradually, meaning it won’t not available for all ear and ear (a) users at the same time.

Users can check the availability of the firmware update by heading to Settings > Feedback on the Nothing X app. They can also leave feedback about the update under Settings > System > Feedback.
