While the lighter color variant will have dark ear cushions, the darker color variant will have light ear cushions. It is still not clear what the color the headphones will feature and speculations are saying black, space gray and white. Apple could also use other colors for the rumored AirPods X Gen, which will be a nice change of pace over white AirPods and AirPods Pro.

Apple over-ear headphones will be similar to the Beats products in terms of features and also incorporate some of AirPods’ features. It is reported that the AirPods X Gen will have the ability to automatically pause the music when the headphones are removed and resume playback when they are put up back again.
