One of the most celebrated headphones for mobiles and other media devices, Apple’s new installment in its hugely popular wireless headphone – The AirPods – is rumored to arrive by the end of this month. There have already been many leaks surfaced about the next generation of Apple’s true wireless handsfree and their arrival, with the expected pricing as well.
The latest one which seems to confirm the release date, name and the pricing of Apple’s AirPods wireless headphones comes from the China Economic Daily, a reliable news portal from China. According to the leak, the Apple’s next version of AirPods will launch by the end of October, they will be quite expensive (around $260 a pair), and the name of the new installment will be AirPods Pro.
Now that is, if we are to believe the report, is a huge upward jump from the current model’s $159 price per pair. But if we take a closer look, the all-new AirPods Pro is expected to stand up to the hefty price tag it will accompany: AirPods Pro will bring in edgy technological features such as noise-cancellation, IPX rating for water and sweat resistance, and fully in-design earbuds.
However, still, the biggest mystery surrounding the launch of the new AirPods Pro is the so meager launching date given in the report by China Economic Daily, as compared to most other previous dates around 2020. However, the October release date for Apple AirPods Pro does have minor credence to it since Apple is planning a major hardware event in October.
But true or not, the arrival of Apple’s AirPods Pro and the sensation around them is it fever-pitch. We hope that at this price range, Apple AirPods Pro will continue to keep its customer-retention rates higher in light with the other competitors on ground (e. g. Sony, LG, Pioneer, etc.)
