Apple is working on modular-style over-the-ear wireless headphones, Bloomberg reported Thursday, in an expansion beyond its AirPods line. The ear pads and headband of the new headphones have padding that apparently attaches to the frame magnetically, so you can replace and customize them.

One version would be a premium option with leather-style fabrics, while the other would be a lighter, fitness-focused model.

The Cupertino, California, company on Wednesday revealed its $399 iPhone SE, which will be available to preorder on Friday. 

Apple didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on the customizable headphones.
