Apple StudioPods Over-Ear Headphones

Apple StudioPods

Apple set to launch its own Headphones titled “StudioPods”?

Rumor has it that Apple is all set, well almost anyway, to release its own headphones which could possibly be named studiopods or something with pod in it. This new headphones will be Apple’s first and will complete their audio product range. The studiopods will likely be aimed at the higher end of the market and is supposed to be better that the current airpods.

So taking a look at the release date, the studiopod’s likely price and its name and features we will delve into studiopod’s features without further ado.

What’s in a name? 

At present there is no sure news that Apple plans on releasing anything that has to do with headphones, let alone decide on its name. But looking at the past and Apple’s reputation for naming everything that has to do with audio, “pods” or “air”, this pair of headphones too will come with a prefix or suffix “air” or “pods”.

Right now the only name I will be using is Studiopods since it has a good ring to it.

Likely release date of “studiopods”: 

At present, if rumors are anything to go by, Apple’s studiopods were scheduled to be released in the 4th quarter of this year. But according to Bloomberg, Apple has apparently pushed the release date to the first half of 2019.

We had our hopes that Apple would release these new studiopod headphones along with the iPhones this year. But Alas! Apple is facing some development challenges which might just push the release date to early 2019.

But then again, Apple might just do away with the studiopods project altogether. Rumor has it that Apple has been trying out various designs and has been on and off the project for quite some time.

Studiopod’s Likely Features: 

As Apple has not yet announced plans for a pair of headphones, the likely features of studiopods is anyone’s guess at this point.

But if we were to take a guess we would say, probably wireless pairing like the airpods, noise cancellation functionality and wireless charging which basically is the standard now a days with all headphones.

According to some sources Apple is working with SZS and Primax on the studiopods project.
Primax, a Taipei based company, is known for making camera parts for smart phones including the iPhone but is also known for making wireless speaker parts too.

Apple could also take cue from their Beats company’s Studio 3 which features Apple’s W1 chip and noise cancellation tech. Besides the features, I wonder if the Apple Studiopods price will also take cue from the Beats Studio 3’s.

Price of the highly anticipated studiopods: 

Sources say that Apple’s studiopods price will be much more than the airpods, surprise suprise.
On a serious note, Apple’s studiopods will be priced keeping in mind the higher end of the market.
These new studiopod headphones will likely stand in competition with companies such as Bose and Apple’s very own Beats by dr. Dre brand.
