Some of the key features of regular AirPods is ear detection, which automatically pauses the song when you take the earphones off, but these are different. Apple is working to include sensors that can detect whether the headphones are on your head or neck. So, AirPods Studio will play or pause content when they detect being placed on your head or your neck detection can be used to keep the headset turned on while the music is paused, just like when you take just one of the AirPods out of the ear. Another new sensor will be able to detect the left and right ears to automatically route the audio channels. That means there’s likely no right or wrong side to use AirPods Studio, whereas current headphones have fixed left and right channels. Apple’s new headphones will have Active Noise Cancellation so the person will be able to easily switch between the two modes to reduce external noise or to hear the ambient sound.
As AirPods Studio is expected to be mainly focused on professional users, pairing the earphones with a Mac or iOS device will unlock custom equalizer settings, with low, medium, and high-frequency. Apple’s over-ear headphones will be available in two variations of the headphones 1 using leather fabrics & another with lighter materials.
