New AirPods X and headband headphones in sight
The rumor mill about the products of the Cupertino firm does not stop because of a virus or anything similar to it. Although I imagine that the last thing we have in mind is to throw ourselves into acquiring products that are not considered of special need. Be that as it may, Some of Apple’s best valued products are precisely the AirPods, and the firm wants to exploit the goose that lays the golden eggs with a new model focused on athletes. But it doesn’t stop there, we’ll also have headband headphones, what’s the point? Well, that is what we ask ourselves.
And it is that according to Appleinsider The company planned to present a new headband headset during this year’s WWDC, which is currently “suspended” sine die. Many spoke of AirPods Pro “Lite”, but everything indicates that this product is actually an AirPods model more focused on physical activity and sports, that is, with a contained price and features more similar to normal AirPods, but with a design that favors its use when training, and so far the only real alternative is the Beats or the AirPods Pro.
This model would be called AirPods X and would cost around 179 euros, completely designed for athletes and especially runners. These headphones would hit the market in the last quarter of this year. But the surprises do not stop here according to Jon Prosser, who has leaked this information (@jon_prosser) but we will also have headband headphones that will be available from approximately June with an incredible price of 350 euros, with features similar to AirPods but the design of traditional headphones. What we don’t know for sure is the extent to which Apple will present them under its brand or continue to take advantage of Beats.
