I received the Nothing Earlier 2 yesterday and began using them today. They ear buds fit nicely in my ears. I used them while cutting grass and they stayed in my ears fairly well. The volume and noise cancelling were good. Set up was pretty easy and pairing them to my phone was ok. Compared to the beats they are fairly equal with the beats having a little better battery life than the nothing brand. I do like the EQ option on the nothing brand and the ability to set it up just the way I want. Sound quality was very crisp.
