Carl Pei tried a video test of the AirPods Pro 2. The observation is clear, if the Nothing ear (2) are more original, Apple headphones are better for noise reduction and transparent mode.

Few of the leaders of technology companies share their opinion on the products of competing brands. Nevertheless, for a few months, Carl Pei, the founder of Nothing, has lent himself to the exercise. On the manufacturer’s YouTube channel, he had the opportunity to give his opinion on the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, the OnePlus 11 and the iPhone 14 Pro.

The last video of this kind goes a little further since Carl Pei is now attacking another behemoth, but in the field of audio: the AirPods Pro 2. It must be said that Nothing has also been offering, for a month, a new pair of wireless headphones also integrating an active noise reduction function, the Nothing ear (2).

If these videos remain above all a means of communicating with Nothing fans, they are not devoid of information on the design of the products. Above all, Carl Pei seems in good faith and, despite his position as competitors against hegemonic brands like Samsung or Apple, he generally recognizes when the products of other manufacturers are better than the alternative offered by Nothing.

The best noise reduction for AirPods Pro 2

In this case, about the AirPods Pro 2, Carl Pei indicates that it is “some of the best noise canceling headphones he’s ever tried“, with noise reduction”much strongerthan on the first AirPods Pro. He even admits that the noise reduction is “slightly“better on the AirPods Pro 2 than on the Nothing ear (2), but that the transparent mode is “much betteron Apple’s headphones than on Nothing’s.

On the design side, Carl Pei highlights the more daring choice of transparency at Nothing in the face of a very sober product on the AirPods, despite many difficulties posed:

It’s easy to make something like the AirPods Pro 2. It’s much more complicated to make something transparent like the Nothing ear (2). We thought a lot about giving up. The main concern is that there are a lot of transparent elements, and when this is the case not only must it look good on the surface, but also on the inside, since any dust will be visible . Our manufacturing processor is crazy. If you visit the production lines there is as much humidity as in a rainforest with a central humidifier with brown coming out of it and most stations have their own humidifiers to make sure the dust settles.

Overall, as usual, Carl Pei is very honest, even if he is obviously going to preach for his parish by suggesting that the Nothing ear (2) are more original and more effective in differentiating themselves from the many buyers of AirPods. Last interesting element, the founder of Nothing indicates that his headphones are mostly used by iPhone owners, ahead of Android smartphone owners.
