Apple could release new high-end headphones this year

Sony WH-1000XM2 Review

Like the AirPods and the new smart home speaker HomePod, Apple is aiming the unannounced headphones to be priced for the high end of the market. According to Bloomberg, the company is said to be developing a pair of over-ear headphones that will work similarly to AirPods in which they'll be simple to pair with your iOS device.

Apple's AirPods earphones have been a surprise hit.

Because of this, we have absolutely no idea when Apple might release the headphones.

It's clear that Apple wants to pin a premium price tag on the headphones but finding that sweet spot among offerings from market leaders such as Bose and Sennheiser will be crucial.

Amazon steps toward security things
According to Reuters , Amazon is said to have paid over $ 1 billion for Ring , although neither company has detailed any figures. At the time of that announcement, Amazon unveiled a Cloud Cam product that essentially is an indoor security camera.

Sources say Apple could redesign the headphones again before launch or even scrap the project entirely. Although it hasn't released sales data, it seems that AirPods have sold well: They're included in the bucket of accessories Apple sells, which it labels as "Other Products" on its earnings reports, which has only increased in recent quarters.

Keep in mind that Apple's HomePod retails for $349, but for the company itself, it costs $216 to make, resulting in smaller margins. Those headphones already take advantage of Apple's W1 chip. Given their over-the-ear design, they will likely sound superior to the AirPods as well. That means a pair of the new headphones may run you anywhere from $350 to $500 based on the pricing of existing products in the market. It's worth noting that numerous current top options in the wireless noise-cancelling market are pricey as well, though: Bose's QuietComfort 35 go for $350, while Sennheiser's HD1 Wireless initially retailed for $500.

There's no word on when the headphones will arrive.
