A pair of leakers this week posted new media that declare to indicate the newest addition to Apple’s audio line-up: the Apple AirPods Studio.
AirPods Studio, rumored to be the primary over-the-ear headphones from Apple, are one of the crucial highly-anticipated Apple merchandise in latest reminiscence as audiophiles and audio professionals alike look to get their palms on what are anticipated to be a number of the smartest headphones ever.
One of many leakers, Jon Prosser, teased a brand new rendering of the newest headphones final week and got here by way of this week with a number of rendered footage he says had been based mostly on materials leaked to him by an Apple insider.

The renders present a sq. housing with rounded corners relatively than the everyday spherical or oval housings seen on most over-the-ear headphones – which hints that the AirPods Studio may not be over-the-ear in any respect, however relatively on-ear.
If that seems to be correct, it’d make the headset’s reported energetic noise cancelling much less efficient. Assuming the headphones are as “good” because the rumors say they’re, in the event that they turn into on-ear as a substitute, Apple could have some new tech in retailer that we do not learn about simply but.
That is very true since – as a possible rival to the Sony WH-1000XM4, which has phenomenal noise-cancelling amongst its different many options – the AirPods Studio must convey one thing significantly new to the desk so as to stand out in a crowded subject of more-established audio tools makers.
However, if anybody can pull that off, it will be Apple – simply ask Motorola and Blackberry.
Are you able to hear that? The sound of extra leaks…
In response to MacRumors, one other leaker, Fudge, seems to have gotten the identical video and pictures that Prosser acquired and posted the picture and video themselves to Twitter.
The image probably reveals the “Sport” variant of the AirPods Studio – in what seems to be Apple’s House Grey shade scheme – that are rumored to be lighter and have detachable and washable ear cushions.

These newest leaks – particularly the video – appear to be the true deal, however till we see any official phrase from Apple, all of it stays hypothesis at this level.
