Nintendo finally got around to delivering the one Switch upgrade every user wanted: The ability to pair AirPods and other Bluetooth headphones. And you don’t need to buy a brand-new console to gain this capability.
A Federal Communications Commission certification reveals Bose may be about to roll out a long-awaited new version of its classic noise-canceling headphones. The company’s popular but long-in-the-tooth QuietComfort 35 and 35 II headphones appear to have a new sibling or, more likely, replacement: new Bose QuietComfort 45 over-ear headphones with active noise cancellation.
And the new headphones could arrive quite soon, bringing no telling what sort of upgrades to ANC, Bluetooth and audio quality.
Beats headphones set the standard for listening before Apple bought the company six years ago. Since then, Cupertino’s $3 billion acquisition has resulted in a slew of new products with Apple’s proprietary tech integrated into the Beats lineup for a seamless audio experience.
That means Beats fans know what to expect when using their headphones with Apple devices: smooth performance, excellent sound quality and thoughtful design. These Beats Solo Pro Wireless Noise Cancelling On-Ear Headphones are no exception. That’s why they earned 4.7/5 stars on Amazon out of 5,520 reviews. And now Cult of Mac Deals can offer these headphones at a massive 46% discount.
Apple expanded its popular AirPods lineup Tuesday, unveiling a new over-the-ear model dubbed AirPods Max.
The high-end headphones promise to deliver “the magic of AirPods” in an all-new design. They boast high-fidelity, spatial audio and active noise cancellation like AirPods Pro. And they come in five colors. They’re available to order today, priced at $549.
Remote work means lots of potential distractions, even if it’s from the comfort of home. Family, neighbors, the TV in another room — there are plenty of ways to lose focus. So during the COVID-19 lockdown, noise-canceling headphones are an essential way to keep distractions at bay.
Apple sold almost 60 million AirPods wireless headphones in 2019, according to a market-analysts firm. That’s a dramatic increase from the 35 million the company is estimated to have sold the year before.
And Apple took the lion’s share of 2019 sales of totally wireless (TWS) headsets.
Bluetooth headphones are the best way to enjoy personal audio. Obviously, they’ve got no wires to untangle. And the technology has advanced to the point where they sound as good as cabled alternatives — plus they add tons of additional features.
There are also many models to choose from — including those high-priced new AirPods Pro — so we rounded up some of the best deals we could find. Even better, each one of these great Bluetooth headphones costs well under $100.
Apple’s AirPods are brilliant. They’re incredibly convenient, sleek and offer pretty good sound. They also add a layer of functionality you don’t get with many other Bluetooth headphones or earbuds. And I’m not even talking about the new AirPods Pro.
So, now that Apple expanded the AirPods line to include both the standard AirPods, and the pricier (although more feature-packed) AirPods Pro, choosing the right option might not seem so clear. How do you choose the AirPods that are best for your life?
