9to5Mac have released some new information about Apple’s AirPods Studio over-ear headphones, due for release at WWDC in June. Neck and head detection, custom equaliser settings and features from the AirPods are expected to make their way to this new model, which is aimed at pros.
AirPods Studio will use head and neck detection to identify when you remove the headphones from your head, and pause the music. Similar to how music pauses when you remove an AirPod, the feature will work through sensors that detect when you put the headphones on your head.
Like AirPods Pro, the Studio is expected to keep the Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and Transparency Mode. These will let you reduce noise around you, or hear ambient sound.
When paired to a Mac or iOS device, users will be able to change custom equaliser settings, with different levels available, sources from 9to5Mac suggest. This isn’t currently possible with AirPods or AirPods Pro, but these are specifically designed for professionals.
Finally, recapping previous leaks, we believe Apple could sell them for $349 in White or Black.
