Apple Working on High-End Airpods, Over-the-Ear Headphones

Report Apple is working on noise-canceling Air Pods and over-ear headphones

Bloomberg: Premium AirPods, next-gen HomePod and new over-ear Apple headphones coming in 2019

A report by Bloomberg suggests that apart from the addition of features to the AirPods, Apple will also be launching studio-quality over-ear headphones, as well as an update to it's relatively unsuccessful Google Home and Amazon Echo competitor, the HomePod.

Those same sources added that Apple is putting together AirPods with water resistance (mainly against rain or sweat, not for swimming or anything like that) and noise-cancellation.

Further down the line, various biometric sensors could also greatly enhance the capabilities of the AirPods family, monitoring your heart rate, for instance, without the need for a phone or watch nearby.

Reports of new Apple audio gear have circulated for a few months now.

Apple has plans to release a pair of over-ear headphones, which are slated for 2019. Either way, the next AirPods will likely include a new chip and an increased Bluetooth range.

When Apple launched AirPods in 2016, the earbuds went on sale with limited supply following a delay.

With the AirPods, Apple has created a bold new kind of wireless headphone, removing the annoyances of struggling to pair and remembering to turn them off to avoid battery drain. Apple originally meant to introduce the headphones by the end of 2018, but has faced development challenges, and is now targeting a launch as early as next year. We don't know much about these, but Bloomberg's sources say that they'll be Apple-branded. The new AirPods, HomePod, and headphones could be released as early as 2019, though no specific timeline has yet been reported. A wireless charging case for Apple's in-ear audio solution is also in the pipeline and will be compatible with the upcoming AirPower wireless charging mat. They'll utilize Apple branding and be positioned as a higher-end alternative to the company's Beats line.

Last but not the least, Apple is also said to be developing a new HomePod speaker that it will launch in 2019 but there are no details available at this point in time about what it might bring to the table.

Apple did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

Then, we come to Apple's new HomePod, which is the most mysterious of the bunch.
