While everyone was expecting AirPods 3 to be announced, the Cupertino giant surprise everyone by creating AirPods Studio which will be a totally new entry in the truly wireless headphone series. Here is everything you need to know about Apple AirPods Studio release date, specs, features, price, and launch at the WWDC 2020 event.
AirPods Studio Price and Features
AirPods Studio is expected to have a price of around $349 which will be higher than any of the regular AirPods release now. Even the AirPods Pro which are considered as the most expensive Apple earbuds costs only $249 at the maximum. The high price of AirPods Studio indicates that the headphone will have active noise cancellation features similar to the AirPods Pro model.
The AirPods Studio will be water-resistant and could also support voice-activated Siri commands. It is also reported that the AirPods Studio will have a sensor that can detect whenever the headphones are worn or removed from the ears so it can automatically play or stop the music.
AirPods Studio Release Date at WWDC 2020
AirPods Studio was first mentioned by Jon Prosser who revealed new models of AirPods that were shown in the retailer’s catalog system. There are two new models of Apple AirPods where one is named AirPods Studio and will have an over-ear design. Whereas, the second model will be named AirPods X and have a sports-oriented design and released around the end of 2020. Max Weinbach, another analyst and leaker also confirmed that Apple has finalized the firmware version for AirPods Studio.
Looks like Apple is sticking with the “AirPods” branding for their new over-ear headphones.

It is expected that Apple will announce the AirPods Studio at the WWDC 2020 event happening from June 22. If the new over-ear AirPods Studio headphones are not announced this month, the next possible launch date is September 2020 along with iPhone 12. Apple would most probably launch AirPods X and it won’t make any sense to release AirPods Studio along with it and hence WWDC 2020 is the perfect date for the headphone reveal.
