The Bose QuietComfort 35 wireless headphones may have some competition this year, as technology analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says the company is in the process of developing its own, proprietary over-ear headphones, which could have Siri integration as well as touch functions.

They’re expected to retail for $349 and be released as early as the second half of 2019. Apple could be planning to launch these headphones alongside next-generation AirPods, which are reported to have an upgraded W2 chip and wireless charging capabilities.
