Technology giant Apple seems to be working on its in-house over-ear wireless headphones. The company plans to enter the headphone segment and compete with the likes of Bose, Sony, and more. Similar to other rumored products, the company has not shared anything regarding the anticipated product. In addition, a new report has surfaced online sharing some additional information about the upcoming product. As per the report, it looks like the Apple wireless headphones will likely feature interchangeable parts. This means that they can swap parts in and out according to their needs.

Apple high-end headphone details

According to a report from Bloomberg, the company is likely developing two variants of wireless headphones. The first will feature premium “leather-like fabrics” and the second will be “fitness-focused” with “lighter, breathable materials.” As per the report, the prototypes of the headphones provide a “retro look” along with oval-shaped ear cups. These ear cups can swivel and the headphone is connected through thin metal arms. Unlike some of the competition, these metal arms start from the top of the ear cups instead of the sides. The company will also use magnets to create user-replaceable headband padding and ear pads. It is clear that Apple is not the first to make such a headphone with interchangeable components.
