Following rumors of the 14-inch MacBook Pro’s release in May 2020, Apple is also reportedly looking to release its over-the-ear headphones in June.

Leaker Jon Prosser, who also broke the rumor on the 14-inch MacBook pro release, took to Twitter to reveal his findings. According to the tech analyst, the over-the-ear headphones goes by the internal codename B515 and draws similarities to the Bose 700. The headphones will reportedly launch at a price of $350 USD during the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in June.

In addition to the over-the-ear headphones, Apple is also supposedly releasing AirPods X sometime in September or October. These earphones draw similarities to BeatsX but will be priced twice the amount at $200 USD.

Prosser further states that Apple’s end goal is to phase out Beats, a company they bought in 2014 from Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine for a whopping $3 billion USD. The tech giant is reportedly looking to build up the Apple/AirPods product line, and have been selling Beats products to employees at 40% off to clear out inventory.
