We teased, then introduced the ear (1) black edition. Accepting cryptocurrency payment became the first step into integrating Web3 in our future ecosystem. And our first ever pop-up retail space, the Nothing Kiosk, sprung up in the heart of London.
Phone (1) is finally launched in the Nothing Event: Return to instinct. We invited our friends and community to a live-streamed party in London to celebrate our most important product. Broadcast live and viewed by over 2M people.
We released our third product, and our most advanced sound experience yet. Ear (stick).
Our first ever retail store opened in Soho, London’s vibrant cultural hub. To celebrate opening weekend, we dropped the #the100 laser engraved limited edition Ear (stick). Exclusively available at Nothing Store Soho.
A new milestone. We launched Ear (2), the first Nothing second-generation product. A mighty refinement in sound, clarity, and everything in between. Still wonderfully original.
Amidst crossing the 1.5 million product sold mark, we closed a $96M financing round, led by Highland Europe, with participation from Google Ventures, EQT Ventures, C Capital and Swedish House Mafia amongst others.
We launched our first second-generation smartphone, Phone (2). Our most powerful and premium move yet featuring the new Glyph Interface, Nothing OS 2.0 and a flagship camera experience. To celebrate, we ran a series of Nothing Drops events. The first locations in the world where people could buy Phone (2) in-person.

Making better products is at the heart of our mission, and that doesn’t just mean better looking or better to use. It means doing better. And that starts with our first product, Ear (1).
First, we worked with internationally recognised third parties to assess Ear (1)’s environmental impact. To completely neutralise its 1.78kg carbon footprint, we started by offsetting the electricity used in the manufacturing process. Then, we purchased carbon credits from Verified Carbon Standard (managed by Verra) – a globally recognised standard for certifying carbon emissions reductions – to offset the remaining emissions.
We want to keep going beyond having a carbon neutral product. This is just the first step in our journey towards becoming a carbon neutral company.
