Apple is building its own premium over-ear headphones, report claims

By reviews / 25. June 2018

A new report has suggested once again that Apple is working on its first in-house pair of over-ear headphones. Although no name for the headphones has yet leaked, theyre expected to launch at some point in 2019

Of course, Apple-owned Beats already produces a wide range of over-ear headphones. The difference here is that Apples own-branded device would focus more on the premium end of the audio marketaccording to Bloomberg, and would also carry Apple brandingwhich has remained absent from Beats headphones ever since the acquisition in 2014.

Thats about all the information we have about the headphones at this point, but already were pretty excited about what could be in store.

W1 meets HomePod

The reason for this is Apples W1 chip, which has already impressed us with its rock-solid wireless connectivity and impressive battery life.

The problem is that so far the chip has been paired with pretty uninteresting headphones. The AirPods have a sleek form-factor but they dont sound especially great, and Beats headphones prioritise a bassy sound signature over an open, neutral sound.

Meanwhile, Apple has shown that its perfectly capable of producing amazing sounding devices in house. For all the valid criticisms you could level at the HomePod, poor sound quality is certainly not one of them.

So if Apple could combine the HomePods sound quality with a pair of headphones with the W1 chip built in, well be very excited to hear the results.

Nothing has been confirmed by Apple, but with a 2019 release date rumoured weve got our fingers crossed for a reveal at Apples traditional September iPhone launch event.
