Apple working on noise cancelling AirPods, over the ear headphones

Apple working on noise cancelling AirPods, over the ear headphones

The new AirPods will have noise-cancellation and water resistance features, though you won't be able to swim with them, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg.

For the deluxe AirPods and the new HomePod, Apple will reportedly work with Foxconn as part of an expanded alliance.

These headphones are created to compete against models from Bose and Sennheiser, according to the report. They will use Apple branding and be a higher-end alternative to the company's Beats line.

Elsewhere, Apple is said to be working on new over-ear headphones that'll compete with offerings from Sennheiser and Bose.

Kit Harington and Rose Leslie's wedding is coming
Several co-stars were in attendance, including Emilia Clarke , Sophie Turner , Maisie Williams and Peter Dinklage . Leslie said she had been too busy to plan the wedding, telling Town & Country magazine: "I haven't tackled it".

Bloomberg notes that none of these aforementioned deals are finalized, and production has not begun on any of these new audio products.

It's not clear what new features will come with the second-generation HomePod; there had been some previous rumblings that Apple was considering a HomePod-esque product with a lower price point.

The over-ear headphones are a different model. An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment.

Apple's current headphone lineup, under the Beats brand, includes $350 headphones. Thus far, it has mostly worked with Inventec, but builds about 30 percent of the units with Luxshare Precision Industry Co. Of course, we're still waiting for Apple to release a few products that were first unveiled in 2017, so there's no telling if Apple's release schedule will change.

Supreme Court rules states can force online retailers to collect sales tax
In a concurring opinion, Justice Clarence Thomas said that after ruling for the retailer in 1992, he had changed his mind. Governor Eric Holcomb said he wants to take a look at what the ruling will mean for IN , and the taxes collected here.

On the one hand, Apple's Amazon Echo competitor, the HomePod, was delayed quite a bit following its announcement.

Not much is known about the other two products in Apple's reported 2019 audio game plan, but studio-quality over-ear headphones could help the company target a certain segment of users that its products aren't effectively reaching now.

The HomePod, another product that was plagued with delays, is also expected to get a refresh. The production however, has not been started.
