Nothing Ear (stick) gets ANC
You might think this ANC update might be released too late but don’t forget that Nothing is a new startup company, CEO of Nothing explains they have hired new staffs after the Nothing has released a firmware update, specifically from version 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124, which adds ANC to the Ear (stick).
If you happen to own a Nothing Phone, you have the option to adjust the ANC mode using the built in system applications. Nothing tries to create a strong ecosystem across the board but even if you don’t use a Nothing Phone, you can update the software through the Nothing X application for Nothing’s audio products. This allows you to change ANC mode of the earbuds within the app.
