Microsoft is said to be developing its own AirPods style wireless earbuds, according to a new report. Little is known about Microsoft’s rumored wireless earbuds so far, but they could have similar functions as the company’s larger Surface Headphones that were released last year. Meanwhile, Apple is also said to be developing its own Apple-branded over-the-ear headphones that won’t have the Beats branding.
In contrast, Apple is said to be working on its own pair of over-the-ear headphones that will be under the Apple branding rather than the Beats branding.Apart from their supposed development, little is known about Microsoft’s AirPods competitors.
