Reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has also said that AirPods Studio will enter mass production in mid-2020.

AirPods Studio may reportedly come with head and neck detection feature similar to the ear detection feature in the AirPods and AirPods Pro.

The AirPods true wireless earphones series have sensors which can detect when the earphones have been removed or put back, to automatically play or pause music or videos on compatible devices.

AirPods Studio will have similar sensors that will detect whether the headphones are on the head or the neck, presumably playing or pausing content when the headphones are worn on the head.
