Sonos, a wireless home audio product company, has long been rumored to be working on premium noise-canceling headsets. And a new design patent filed to the German Patent and Trademark Office, spotted by TheVerge, gives us our first look at the headset with a more refined product look. The company has registered these fillings in December which then published late in January.
Apart from these drawings, a little is known about the Sonos headphones which are expected to cost as same as its high-end competitors like Sony and Bose. Headsets seem to have a USB-C port, a 3.5-millimeter cable input, and 2-3 buttons which can be seen in drawings, which could be for volume controls or for some kind of touch controls in it. Being an expensive headset it will also offer a replaceable ear cushion as per patent drawings.
Sonos CEO Patrick Spence has confirmed during the company’s earnings call last week that the company’s next product will be announced in March which would be a smaller Bluetooth speaker. And with this, we hope to hear more about the recently filed headset very soon and these headphones could end up being the second new product for 2021.
