New Beats earbuds revealed by LeBron James?

Audio
Speaker 1: Did LeBron James just blow the cover on Apple's latest unreleased, beats earbuds, here's everything we know, Speaker 1: Space jam star, LeBron James posted a few picks on Instagram. At first it looks like LeBron walking around, but people have noticed what's in his ears. A number of reports speculate that LeBron is wearing a pair of unreleased beats wireless buds. Now, why would people think that [00:00:30] there have been reports floating around that apple is set to release a new pair of beats, truly wireless earbuds, nine to five Mac dug into internal iOS, 14.6 files and found a new pair of earbuds called the beats studio buds. These buds would feature noise cancellation, have Heyer functionality and have an apple chip for instant pairing. Steve Moser over at Mac rumors found animations of new earbuds in betas of iOS and tvOS. In [00:01:00] one, you see a black opening up and rotating. The case has the beats B logo and a blinking light beneath that. You also get a top view of the buds. Speaker 1: They seem to form some kind of pill shape in the other. You see two buds spinning with a closed case. The outer part of the ear, bud seems to form that pill shape we saw in the other animation. The inner side of the buds has a round shape with two cutouts. There's also a silicone tip. These earbuds appear to be much more compact than the power [00:01:30] beats pro since they do not have those big power beats pro ear hooks with that feature set. These beats studio buds would be competing with the AirPods pro, which is kind of weird, but the whole beats apple thing has been kind of weird. So there's that then FCC paperwork for a product called beats studio buds popped up the filings, gave the name I just mentioned, and also featured drawings of the inner side of the earbuds. They look just like the animations, [00:02:00] just without that silicone tip, you get the round shape. Speaker 1: And two cutouts, usually when they're FCC filings, that means that the product is coming out. Pretty soon after that a site called my smart price.com, published pictures of what looks like the inner part of the ear butt housings. They have a roundish shape with two cutouts. They're labeled with an L and an R. There's also some other apple text on there. The site did that. It could not independently verify the authenticity of the pictures. So [00:02:30] is LeBron wearing a pair of unreleased beat studio buds? Let's put up some comparisons. It's kind of hard to tell, but the outside of the bud in LeBron's ear does look like it forms uphill shape. We can look each image and compare it to the animations. What do you think? Speaker 1: [00:03:00] But how could LeBron James get his hands on a pair of ear buds that are not even released? That would be impossible, right? No, it's LeBron, LeBron and beats go together like peanut butter and jelly. It's very likely that he did get his hands on a pair of beat studio buds early. Now pricing is not yet yet known by the way. However, since they have the feature set of the AirPods pro, I think they could have a similar price that is in the ballpark of $250. There's also the question of whether these [00:03:30] new beats will support apple music. Lossless audio, apple, just put up a page explaining that quote, AirPods, AirPods, pro AirPods, max, and beats wireless headphones use apple AAC, Bluetooth Kodak to ensure excellent audio quality, however, Bluetooth connections aren't lossless. And that would mean that the beat studio buds would need something extra to handle lossless audio. So do you think those were beats in LeBron's ears or not? Let us I'm [00:04:00] Maya, Zach Turner. I'll see you online.
