AirPods Studio will join the AirPods family this year. It is rumoured Apple will be dropping a new product to their AirPods line up this year at WWDC 2020.
We’ve been hearing rumours about these new headphones, which will be the first Apple-branded over-ear headphones Apple has released, since 2018, but rumours are picking up and it looks like we could see a launch this year at WWDC 2020.
Current rumours indicate the AirPods Studio will feature Active Noise Cancelling, equalizer settings controlled through an iOS or Mac device, and head and neck detection, similar to the ear detection in the AirPods.
Apple could be working on two designs, one that’s a higher-end premium version and one that’s fitness-focused and made from lighter weight materials. Both versions may feature magnetic ear cups and headband padding that’s able to be swapped out for a customisable look, similar to Apple Watch bands.
According to a report in 9to5Mac, the AirPods Studio will feature head and neck detection. So playback could be automatically paused when you place the headphones on your neck and automatically resume when you put them back on your head.
Apple are planning to sell the AirPods Studio for £349, which is the same pricing as the current Beats Studio in the Beats lineup.
