Report Apple is working on noise-canceling Air Pods and over-ear headphones

Apple is planning to unveil new high-end AirPods, a new HomePod, and new studio quality over-ear headphones next year, reports Bloomberg. They'll be water resistant (to rain and sweat - not full submersion), noise cancellation, and they'll have increased range from iPhones and iPads.

The new and improved AirPods will likely be a bit more expensive than existing models, allowing Apple to segment the product line in the same way it does the iPhone.

The over the ear headphones will be a premium offering targeting the likes of Bose and Sennheiser. A new report coming from Bloomberg now talks about a couple of new features that one can expect from the upcoming wireless earphones.

Finally, the thus-far-underwhelming sales of the HomePod hasn't deterred Apple's plans to ship out a new version by next year. It intends to expand its partnership with Foxconn and reduce reliance on its smaller vendors like Inventec. The original HomePod was supposed to be released to consumers in December 2017 but was delayed until early this year. Future AirPods could add biometric sensors like a heart rate monitor.

Fallen Kingdom' Tops Box Office & Exceeds Expectations!
In total, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has opened No. 1 in 67 worldwide markets to date and stomped the franchise across $4.4B. Openings in Brazil, Central America, Argentina, Colombia and Chile were among those that topped the previous film this weekend.

Meanwhile, both Bloomberg and longtime Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo previously tipped Apple to release over-the-ear noise-cancelling headphones but noted that the company had dealt with production issues putting them together.

With the HomePod, Apple proved that it can definitely make audio products that deliver outstanding sound quality. An in-house audio-product team is run by Gary Geaves, formerly an engineer from B&W Group Ltd., a maker of speaker systems and headphones.

Previous reports have claimed the headphones would feature noise cancellation and an all-new design, challenging models now available in the $350 Dollars to $500 price range.

Apple debuted its wireless earbuds in December 2016. The production however, has not been started.
