We’ve all had those earworms where we hear a snippet of a song somewhere but we can’t for the life remember the name of it. You could search for the lyrics, but what if you don’t know the lyrics? What if you only remember the melody? The good news is that Google wants to make it easier for you to get rid of that earworm.
Now that Apple is no longer including the EarPods with their iPhones, it means that if you want to listen to music on the go, you’re going to need to buy a new pair, if you don’t own one already.

The rumors had initially stated that the AirPods Studio will not be announced at Apple’s iPhone event, but it could be released later this month or next.

With all the fuss surrounding smart speakers, it did not come as a surprise that Apple tossed their hat into the ring when they launched the HomePod. However, to say that the speaker received a lukewarm reception is overstating it as many were put off by the price and also the seemingly lack of features compared to other smart speakers.
If the rumors are to be believed, Apple could be working on a pair of over-ear headphones called the AirPods Studio. The headphones are rumored to be announced at Apple’s iPhone event which is supposed to be scheduled for next week, and in the meantime, the company seems to be getting ready for their launch.
