Apple’s headphone department is doing big business these days, leading to a lot of talk about their upcoming headphones.
Yes, you heard it right, more details have emerged about AirPods Studio — Apple’s upcoming over-ear cans. So strap in.
Reported by 9to5Mac, one of the biggest pieces of information from this leak revolves around how the sensors on Apple’s AirPods Studio will work.
The new headphones will have a feature similar to the normal AirPods, but they’ll include something fresh called neck detection which means that AirPods Studio will pause when you take them off your head, they’ll remain ready to bust out more tunes while they’re around your neck, instead of turning off.
Another interesting feature of the sensors on this new headphone is to do with the audio channels. This over-ear cans will detect which way you’re wearing them, and route the correct side of audio into your ears.
Headphones generally have a left and right side, which pumps in audio from that channel. The idea is you’ll be able to wear Apple’s AirPods Studio either way without this being an issue.
On top of this, AirPods Studio will have some of the features you’re used to with the AirPods Pro, such as transparency mode and noise-canceling. But one good feature Apple’s new headphones will have is EQ function — something that Apple’s other headphones and earbuds lack.
This means that you’ll be able to tweak the lows, mids, and highs your headphones deliver, giving you a more customized sound.
I’m sure there’s going to be a lot more details about Apple’s new over-ear headphones surfacing over the next couple of months, but one thing is certain: they aren’t gonna be cheap.
If the in-ear AirPods Pro currently retail for around $250, there’s no way the AirPods Studio will go for anything under $350.
