Apple is working on high-end headphones to compete with Bose

Bloomberg: Premium AirPods, next-gen HomePod and new over-ear Apple headphones coming in 2019

Bloomberg report reveals three new Apple products launching next year

In line with previous gossip, Bloomberg expects hands-free Siri assistance and a "new chip" to be offered by the end of 2018, with enhanced noise cancellation and water resistance then added at some point next year. Also underworks is a wireless Airpods charging case that would work with the upcoming AirPower charger. Apple already stocks the Beats Studio 3 over-ear headphones. In their effort to add multiple uses to pretty much all their products, they've also reportedly had internal discussions to add fitness-related components to the pods including biometric sensors, like a heart rate monitor.

Interestingly, Apple owns the Beats audio brand, which also produces various personal audio products including headphones, earphones and wireless speakers. The new earbuds will likely cost more than the current $159, according to Bloomberg. Apple's audio products aren't considered "audiophile", and these new headphones could appeal to Apple users that want better sound quality. It does say, however, that Apple is expanding its partnership with Taiwanese manufacturer Foxconn-which manufactures the bulk of Apple's iPhones-to boost production of its future audio devices.

Cardi B Donates $8,000 To Slain Bronx Teen Junior Guzman-Feliz’s Family
Online, people are using the hashtag #JusticeforJunior as they call for law enforcement to act swiftly in this gruesome crime. Cruz and Chiky Grocery in the Bronx's Belmont area was the site of Guzman-Feliz's murder.

While this does fill in a few gaps in the Apple/Beats lineup of headphones, this is a roll of the dice for Apple. Don't expect the pricing to be on the low-priced side though, with them likely to be placed as a "higher-end alternative to the company's Beats line".

Apple may launch another version of the HomePod by next year. Unfortunately, there are no details about what features it might boast. Apple continues to develop and produce audio products under its own brand name, which are sold alongside Beats products.
