Beats Electronics currently has three wireless headphones in the market: the Beatsflex, PowerBeats and PowerBeats Pros. The first two are ‘neck buds’ while the PowerBeats Pros can be hooked onto the users’ ears.
With Apple’s WWDC 2021 slated to happen in the coming few weeks (7-11 June), Apple commenters are expecting the Beat Studio Buds to be officially announced during the event. Apple is also rumoured to announce at the event a 40-core Apple M1 Mac Pro and the eighth generation of the iPod Touch.
