According to latest reports, Apple plans to build high end headphones after the huge success of Airpods.
As of now, Apple is planning to build high end headphones that fit over ear and come with noise cancellation technology to cancel the external noise. The company has started the background work for producing such headphones. But, it has faced some issues with the headphones in the development stage. So, Apple’s latest headphones are expected to be launched in 2019 Q1.
Apple acquired Beats company in 2014 for a whopping $3 billion. Since then, the company has been providing best audio in its phones. Apple operates Beats as a separate entity. However, it has come up with AirPod earbuds in 2016, which was a huge success. The AirPods’ first version was priced at $159. Though Beats makes Airpods earbuds, it is seen that AirPods haven’t eaten up the sales of Beats.
Though Apple provides high quality headphones, customers still have a choice to choose between AirPods and Beats headphones. There are some woes in Apple’s headphones development, so the company is planning to reconsider its design.
If nothing seems to work out with the design part, Apple is likely to abandon the idea and release new headphones. However, the new headphones are wireless, so the customers need not plug in the headphones to any player or mobile phone. Since these are wireless and also have some high end options embedded in them, Apple’s headphones are likely to cost more when compared to its previous versions.
So, if you are a person who is looking out for the best quality headphones with extremely well-built design and sound quality, then this would be the best bet for you. Moreover, one needs to wait till the end of 2018 or till 2019 Q1.
