Apple is Working on New High-End Noise-Cancelling Headphones

Apple is reportedly working on a line of high end over-the-ear headphones following the somewhat surprising success of its dangly AirPods, according to a new Bloomberg report.

That being said, Apple is said to be preparing noise-cancellation headphones meant to deliver a stellar audio experience to those who are used to acquiring accessories from the likes of Beats and Bose. However, Bloomberg has reported that they are going to some redesign issues with similar issues as they face with the HomePod. It's entirely possible that Apple may redesign the headphones again before the product launches, but the device may also be scrapped.

This year is likely to draw a lot of attention to Apple's audio products, which the company is planning to upgrade with even more premium hardware.

With a screen close to 6.5 inches, Apple's big new handset will be one of the largest mainstream smartphones on the market.

There is still some uncertainty about when the Apple headphones will be launched, in part because it has faced "development challenges" which might result in a delay until 2019, the report says. Speaking of, future revisions of Apple's wireless AirPods are expected to be water resistant and house a new wireless chip to enable Siri voice activation.

Curiously, Apple owns the Beats by Dre. This time it will be high-end, over-ear wireless headphones. The KGI report terms AirPods as "Apple's most important accessory product". Although the company plans to release the headphones as early as 4Q18, the site notes that there have been setbacks.

The pricing for the new Apple headphones is seen as the key to all of this. Both Bose's popular QC35 II and Beats' Studio3 wireless headphones cost $350.
