As the title says, the Nokia Clarity Earbuds Pro is the most impressive earbuds with Nokia branding when compared to the previous offerings from HMD Global and Rich Go. These earbuds were announced in July 2021 along with a massive number of earbuds which was sort of a retaliation to what Rich Go was offering. Unfortunately, things went quiet after that, and these earbuds became rarer than unicorns. While the few entry level ones made it to certain markets, the Nokia Clarity Earbuds Pro was no where to be found, until recently.
I haven’t been more excited with the HMD’s line up till now. While each of us have a different taste and likings, my personal preference has to be earbuds by Rich Go. These Nokia branded earbuds are more practical, economical and with a hardware to match. For the same reason, I have been wanting to review this top end offering from HMD Global as to gauge which one is simply better.
For those unfamiliar, Rich Go also produces Nokia branded accessories and I have reviewed quite a few with Nokia E3511 ANC being the most recent one. The last HMD Global earbuds that I reviewed was the BH 805 ANC. What makes the Nokia Clarity Earbuds Pro interesting is the fact that this is a whole new generation of earbuds completely unrelated to their previous offerings and this might just be the one to beat Rich Go’s premium earbuds.
The Clarity Pro earbuds offer dual mic noise reduction along with Qualcomm cVc technology. It offers noise cancellation with Ambient mode, supports low latency mode which is excellent for gaming or streaming videos and is rated to last up to 7hours of usage per charge with a total of 35 hours of usage time.
The 10mm neodymium driver coupled with ANC mode promises immersive audio experience and the IPX4 rating means this will be an excellent companion for your workout sessions. What is more impressive is the inclusion of a circular light ring which lights up when in a call which Nokia says “helps those around you to recognize that you are not to be disturbed”.
Another major upgrade and leap over Rich Go’s offering is the wireless charging case. The case itself has a 380mAh battery which can also be charged via the traditional USB C charging port.
