Wireless Apple-branded headphones might be launched this year

Apple is reportedly working on a pair of own-branded high-end headphones that could be released before the end of 2018. According to Bloomberg and people familiar with the matter, these new headphones should bring features like noise cancellation and wireless connectivity, being Apple’s first own-branded over the ear headphones (but not the first Apple-branded wireless earphones, since we already have the in-ear AirPods, launched in late 2016).


For now, it’s unclear how Apple intends to differentiate these new headphones from the wireless models that the company is already selling under the Beats brand - including the Beats Studio3 (pictured above, currently costing $349), or the Beats Solo3 ($299). In any case, Bloomberg’s report is echoing a previous note from reputable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who also mentioned that new Apple-branded headphones could arrive this year.


Bloomberg has it that Apple may have not decided on the headphones’ final design yet. Furthermore, it’s said that the company might encounter unspecified development issues that would force it to delay the headphones to 2019, or even to cancel their launch altogether.


Later in 2018, Apple is also expected to release second-generation AirPods (with a splash-resistant design and enhanced Siri integration). We’re certainly looking forward to seeing what new music-oriented products the company has been working on lately.
