Apple’s premium budget AirPods Studio likely to cost $600
Apple will host a special event on October 13 wherein it is expected to launch its next-generation iPhone 12 series smartphones. But the iPhone 12 is not the only device that Apple will be launching this year. A report suggests that the company is also planning to launch a new pair of headphones this year.
As per a report by noted tipster Jon Prosser, Apple will be launching two new pairs of headphones this year. The luxury variant of the Apple AirPods Studio will be made of metal and leather and be priced at $600 ( ₹43,776 approximately). The other variant will be made of cheaper material and cost $350. “There will be another sport-like variant made of cheaper materials for $350 ( ₹26,536 approximately),” he wrote in a tweet.

The renders that I shared last month seem to be the luxury variant — made of leather/metal.
I’m being told they’ll retail for.... $599 😳
There will be another sport-like variant made of cheaper materials for $350.
They WILL NOT be at the October 13 event. https://t.co/awunRlGrD4 pic.twitter.com/le2cfmlC9P
The catch, however, is that the company will not be launching its AirPods Studio at its upcoming October 13 event. “They WILL NOT be at the October 13 event,” he added.

In a separate tweet, he talked about the specifications of the Apple AirPods Studio. Prosser said that the premium budget headphones codenamed B515 will be made of high-quality leather and metal and they will come with magnetic earcups. They will come sans the headphone jack. Instead, they will feature a USB Type-C port. One defining feature of the AirPods Studio will be its ability to detect the right and left ear. It also means that this upcoming pair of headphones will come with the ability to reverse the earphones based on the detected ear.
Lastly, the tipster talked about Apple AirTags. Earlier reports hinted towards the company’s wireless charging mats arriving at its September 15 ‘Time Flies’ event. However, the device missed the launch at the time. Now word is that Apple has further pushed the launch of its Apple AirTags. The device will now be launched in March 2021 instead.
