More speculation on Apple’s rumored expansion into the headphone market

Regarding the speculation by KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (read my thoughts here) that Apple will launch its own branded high-end, over-ear headphone with an “all new” design to add to its growing audio accessory lineup, Bloomberg has corroborated the rumor and added some more info. The report says:

  • The tech giant is working on noise-canceling, over-ear headphones “that rival headsets from market leaders like Bose and even the company’s own Beats by Dre brand.”
  • Apple plans to launch the headphones as early as the end of this year, but has faced development challenges that might push back the release.
  • It’s possible Apple will redesign the headphones again before launch, or scrap the project altogether.
