Monday in CE: Apple Rumors Over-the-Ear, AirPod-like, Beats-esque Headphones
Never one to hide the visions from his crystal ball, Apple analyst extraordinaire Ming-Chi Kuo suspects the tech giant could be working up something very similar to their already successful Beats headphone.
This makes sense for a few different reasons. AirPods have been widely successful and are underscored by the success of the HomePod soundscape, proving Apple has serious opinions about being an audio contender.
According to Kuo, the new headphones would be a dedicated over-the-ear successor, one that is firmly placed under Apple's brand, and could be released later this holiday season. Kuo has pointed to Apple working with a metal injection molding company as his primary source for the new headphones. The new shape would address and capture anyone unhappy with the design of AirPods who still want to use all the functions of one of the best truly wireless earbuds on the market.
