AirPods Studio is speculated to be Apple’s upcoming big project. The over-ear headphones could mark the tech giant’s entry into the competitive environment of high-quality over-ear headphones.
Based on recent leaks and reports, Apple AirPods Studio could arrive with some of the greatest tech features that could land them a spot on the best noise-canceling headphones list. Here are the latest details about the upcoming device.
Apple AirPods Studio Rumored Launch Date
The tech giant based in Cupertino already dominates the wireless earbuds market with its praised AirPods and AirPods Pro. So, imagine what a dedicated pair of premium over-ear headphones could do.
The AirPods Studio has been rumored to arrive as soon as this year, but its actual launch date is still missing. Jon Prosser, a well-known leaker, once claimed that the over-ear headphones would be announced at Apple’s WWDC conference in June, but that never happened, as the event focused mainly on the new software iOS 14 and macOS Big Sur.
Now, the AirPods Studio headphones are speculated to enter production in Vietnam. If such a thing proves to be accurate, the device could be shipped to Apple by July. Given this information, a release by this fall alongside the much-awaited iPhone 12 doesn’t seem that impossible.
Apple AirPods Studio Expected Specs and Features
Apple AirPods Studio is expected to feature active noise-cancelation and a Transparency mode for hearing everything around you, similar to the AirPods Pro.
A 9to5Mac report claims that the over-ear headphones will arrive with head and neck detection. Such a thing means that the playback could be automatically paused when you place the AirPods Studio on your neck and resume automatically when you put them back on your head.
Besides, Apple’s upcoming device will reportedly arrive with automatic ear detection, which would automatically route audio to the exact ear. 9to5Mac also claimed that the over-ear headphones would have a custom equalizer, with low, medium, and high-frequency adjustments.
Apple AirPods Studio Design
The AirPods Studio is believed to arrive with a retro look with swiveling earcups and metallic arms. According to Bloomberg, the over-ear headphones could also feature swappable ear pads, allowing users to customize their devices like Apple Watch.
Apple might as well sell the headphones in a premium leather variation and a more fitness-minded configuration.
