These will be high-end headphones so we can assume that it might not be affordable as AirPods. As per the reports, Apple has created two variations of the earphones, which are not announced. One will have leather fabrics, and the other one will have lighter materials.
The headphones have been spotted with a retro look with oval-shaped ear cups and a headband connected by metal arms. The arms start from the top of the ear cups instead of the sides.
The earpads and headband pads are attached to the frame of the headphones magnetically so the user can replace it. It is similar to some headphones from Master and Dynamic and Bowers & Wilkins. These models only have magnetic ear pads.
