Apple Reportedly To Launch Over-Ear Headphones Minus Beats Branding

Apple Reportedly To Launch Over-Ear Headphones Minus Beats Branding

The Cupertino based tech giant expects the product to hit the market in the second half of this year. According to Kuo, the goal is to deliver the same ease of use as the AirPods, but with better sound quality. Aside from materials and minor aesthetic variables, most headphones of this type share basic commonalities, usually incorporating two ear cups connected by a band or strap that arches over a user's head. Possibly, the headphones would be similar to the over-ear headphones which Apple makes through the Beats subsidiary. This product is expected to be an upgarde over Apple's wireless AirPods, an analyst said. Kuo doesn't give specifics for hardware, only suggesting that metal injection molding specialist SZS is likely to be involved. The new headphones will be priced higher than AirPods and should help boost the business momentum of Primax as the assembly provider.

However, the expected design language of the device is not yet known. These earbuds brought along a number of useful features like pausing music when one earbud is out, contacting Siri with a double-tap, and obviously more freedom since they're completely wireless. Admittedly, tapping the Airpods twice to activate the personal assistant doesn't sound like too much work, but they still decided to make it even easier. Although, there have not been any issues reported with the current set-up, just saying the magic phrase "Hey Siri" would be a welcome change. While this is on the inside, from the outside the upcoming AirPods version is said to be water resistant.

Catches win matches is an old cliché but in modern game , it is also imperative to hit the stumps to run out rival batsmen. For many, the Pakistan Super League is just another Twenty20 tournament, one of many in the cricketing calendar.

Rumours indicate that it could debut alongside the company's AirPower wireless charging mat for iPhones, Apple Watches, and AirPods in late March. Also, its ease of use and relatively affordable pricing is a major reason for its success.
