Apple to Unveil High-End AirPods

Apple Airpods

AirPods Slated for 2019 Release

According to sources, Apple is planning for the release of high-end AirPods, HomePod and over-ear headphones for as early as 2019. The AirPods are slated to pump up the volume and will also come with noise cancellation and water resistance. When we talk of water resistance, the AirPods will not be suitable for swimming, but essentially to protect it against rain and perspiration.

Apple will be working on increasing the range that the AirPods can work away from an iPhone or an iPad. The AirPods will cost more than the $159 per pair. They are working on a wireless charging case which will also be compatible with the AirPower charger.

The company is also looking at biometric sensors to be added to the AirPods. It could be a heart-rate monitor which could be handy like the Apple Watch and thus expand their base in the health-related field. However, the AirPods that are currently available are slated to be enhanced later this year with a new chip. This will allow hands-free Siri activation.

Features of the AirPods

The cordless AirPod headphones can connect instantly with all your other devices as soon as you put them into your ears.

The AirPod has a W1 chip which allows 5 hours of non-stop listening on a single charge. It also has a charging case which accommodates additional charges and gives more than 24 hours listening time. In case you require quick charge, then put the AirPods in the charging case for just 15 minutes and you will get 3 hours of listening time.

Siri can be activated by double clicking on any of the AirPods, without any need of taking your iPhone out of your pocket.

The AirPods will connect with all the other Apple devices that you have. The AirPods connect with your Apple Watch and iPhone simultaneously. You need to just choose AirPods on your iPad or Mac in case you want to listen on those devices.

With the AirPods, you receive high quality AAC audio. Whenever the user wants to make a call or talk to Siri, then the background noise is cancelled by dual beamforming microphones.

The AirPods will help you hear more clearly in a noisy environment through the iOS 12 operating system which is slated for a launch in the fall.

The AirPods through the iOS 12 can be used for “Live Listen”, which is an assistive hearing technology developed by Apple. This is available on the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with compatible hearing aids or cochlear implants since 2014. The AirPods need to be paired through the Bluetooth on your iOS 12 device.

The AirPods from Apple have raised the bar since you can not only walk around with them in your ears but you can also understand what people are saying more clearly.

In addition to the AirPods, Apple is said to be coming out with a new HomePod and over -ear headphones in early 2019. The headphones will be competing with those from Bose and Sennheiser. These headphones will be a higher-end alternative to the company’s Beats line.
