Rumors about AirPods Studio headphones are getting louder

Headphones
Apple is rumored to be working on a pair of over-ear headphones, possibly called the AirPods Studio. Here is everything we know about these headphones so far. [MUSIC] We've heard rumors for the past few months from a couple of different sources that give us a lot of information about these over-ear headphones might look like. And also what features they might have. The first is like the AirPods Pro, these over-ear headphones would have active noise cancellation and a transparency mode. This transparency mode lets [UNKNOWN] some sound from the outside world, so you're able to have an idea of what's going on even when you have them over your ears and you're listening to music. A report from nine to five Mac has also given us a lot of detail on some of the senses that these headphones might have. The first is one to know whether they're resting on your head or you've had them around your neck. So, like the regular AirPods that have sensors to know when you take them out of your ears and the music pauses accordingly. These headphones would supposedly know when they're on your head or resting on your neck and be able to pause the music when you're not actively listening to them. These headphones will also potentially not have a right or a wrong way to wear them. So with headphones that traditionally have a left and a right channel hardwired The airpods [UNKNOWN] may have a sensor that would know which way you put them on and be able to route the left and the right channels accordingly. These headphones might also have an equalizer so when you're listening to music on IOS or macOS you'll be able to tweak the sound accordingly. Now Apple does have an adaptive EQ currently on the air pods Pro. Now this is dynamically adjusting the sound depending on a couple of different variables such as the shape of your ear, but unless you go in and manually tweak the equalizer in an app like Spotify or even an Apple music within the settings. You can't change the sound to your liking. So the air pods studio may have a custom equalizer app. I know that's something that I'm definitely looking forward to. If these headphones are the real deal, the first indication that we've got that there would be called the air pod studio was from this tweet from john Prosser that also revealed A card name and a price $349. Bloomberg has also been talking about a number of different finishes available for the AirPods Studio. So a leather like finish or maybe even leather itself as well as a lighter fabric that would potentially be for a different application, maybe like a sort of a fitness targeted headphone. There's also talked about the fact that these may be modular so you could change out the cups or maybe even the headband itself. Think about how Apple does the Apple Watch so you can change the straps or the metal finish on the watch face itself when you're buying it. Maybe that's what the airport studio could offer as well. As for color options, we're still unsure but it does look like at least we'll be able to potentially get them in a black version as well. If this glyph from leaked iOS 14 source code is anything to go by, as you know by now the AirPods Pro, only available in white. So if you want another color option, you kinda add a lock unless you put a custom skin on them. [MUSIC] So the AirPod lineup would look something like this. Starting with the regular look AirPods at a $159, then a $199 for the regular AirPods with the wireless charging case. Then for $249 would be the airport's pro at $349 it would be the RV airports studio. As for release timeline was still uncertain, especially with everything that's going on in the world right now. But given that the fact that this was spotted in iOS 14 source card, it does make sense that perhaps we would say this released when the full version of iOS is available to the public., so that's around September time line or in the fall, and that's usually when Apple decides to release the new iPhone or the iPhone 12, and we're expecting that in the fall. This isn't the first time that we've seen potential Apple headphones like in iOS source code. This has happened before with the power beats Pro, the power beats four and the air pods Pro. So those are all the rumors, but I still do have some lingering questions that are in my head that maybe you're also thinking all this well. The first is, how are these gonna differ from the Beats headphones line? So, as you probably know, Apple owns Beats and, six months ago, they released the Solar Pro headset. Now these are not over ear, they're actually on ear, but still have a lot of the same features that we've been talking about such as Active noise cancellation and a transparency mode. They also have that same chip that's in the airports for seamless connections. And they also have voice activated. You know what I'm not going to say because I don't want to start your voice assistant, but they have a lot of the same features essentially and they are $50 cheaper, so $299 rather than $349 So it's gonna be interesting to see how Apple differentiates those. Maybe it's gonna come down to the sound profile. Traditionally, the Beats headphones have been a little bit more bass heavy. So maybe the AirPods Studio will sound a little bit more like the regular AirPods, a bit more neutral on that default profile, and the equalizer will let people like me who like to tweak the audio be able to change it. The next is the ability for the air pods studio to have a wired connection. We're just not sure if this is a thing yet. Maybe they'll also have a 3.5 millimeter connector if you want to say connect to a MacBook or a lightning connector if you want to connect to an iPhone. I really hope that there is a way to have a wired connection. As well as being able to use them wireless Of course. The other thing is how are they going to sit for people that wear glasses because if you wear glasses like me, you'll know that prolonged wear of over ear headphones can sometimes cause some discomfort depending on the design. So I do hope that these ones are gonna be comfortable to wear for glasses whereas. [MUSIC] And $349 these headphones are gonna be placed in the same kind of price bracket as those from other brands like Bose, Sony and Sennheiser. So it's really gonna be interesting to see how Apple separates them from these other headphones. Thanks for watching if you have extra questions or a wish list maybe for the Air pod studio leave me a comment down below and let me know and stay tuned for lots more Apple news reviews and rumors here on Cnet
