Thanks to 9to5Mac, however, we learned more exclusive details about this new Apple product, including the specifications and settings.

AirPods Studio: new rumors about over-ear headphones
One of the main and most appreciated features of normal AirPods is ear detection: a function that automatically pauses the song when you remove the headphones. These days, information is circulating that even the new ones Apple over-ear headphones they will have a similar function. However, in the new AirPods, instead of ear detection, Apple is working to include sensors that can detect whether the headphones are on the head or neck. Based on this new information in circulation we can assume that the new AirPods Studio play or pause content when it detects it is placed on your head or neck.
Neck detection can be used to keep the headphones on while music is paused, just like when you only take one of the AirPods out of your ear. Another new sensor will be able to detect the left ear from the right ear, by setting the audio channels automatically. This means that while current headphones have fixed left and right channels, to use AirPods Studio it is probably not necessary to identify the right side from the left side (pavilion L and R). Just like the AirPods Pro, the new Apple headphones will have the mode of active noise cancellation. Users will be able to easily switch from one mode to another to reduce external noise or listen to ambient sound.
According to a recent Bloomberg report that we told you about a few weeks ago, Apple's own-brand over-ear headphones will be available in at least two variants of headphones: one that uses leather fabrics and another with lighter materials suitable for those who play sports. Headphones will be available in at least two color options and the starting price will be $ 349.
