Headphones a hit


Shipments of Apple’s popular AirPods wireless earphones are expected to double to 60m units in 2019, according to people familiar with the Cupertino-based company’s production plans. This has been driven in part by much higher’ than expected demand for the pricier AirPods Pro model unveiled in October. The US$249 AirPods Pro – which offer noise cancellation and water resistance – have surpassed expectations and demand for them is pushing Apple’s assembly partners against capacity and technical constraints. Multiple suppliers are competing for the business of manufacturing the Pro earphones, though some are still building up the technical proficiency.
