Apple has stopped selling headphones and wireless speakers from third-party makers ahead of the expected launch of new Apple audio products, Bloomberg noted Monday.

Apple has long carried headphones and speakers from rivals such as Sonos, Bose and Logitech, but those products disappeared from the company’s website at the end of September, and employees at the Apple ‘s retail locations were instructed to remove the products from store shelves, Bloomberg reported.

Apple is reportedly working on several versions of over-ear headphones, including a fitness-oriented model and one with premium leather-like finishes. There was speculation that the headphones may have interchangeable components too, like being able to switch out ear cups.

Review: PaMu Quiet TWS earbuds are an ear-friendly alternative to other noise-cancelling earphones

PaMu Quiet earbuds are a $90 pair of earbuds that offer decent sound quality, active noise cancellation, but may not be enough for the true audiophile.

Today we’re taking a look at the PaMu Quiet TWS earbuds— a budget-friendly pair of earbuds that may have solved the ear-ache issues associated with active noise cancellation.

The case can be hung easily from a bag

The PaMu Quiet ship with an interesting case that seems to emulate the shape of a pocket watch. A blue light on the outside shows the current charge level, while a secure button release ensures your case won’t accidentally pop open.

The case is Qi-compatible, allowing you to drop it on your favorite wireless charging pad to top it off. If you don’t have a charging pad, the case can be charged via the included USB-C port.

These New Noise Canceling True Wireless Earphones Are Stuffed With The Latest Technology

Wireless earphones continue to arrive on my desk for review at the rate of two pairs a week. Ever since Apple removed the headphone jack from the iPhone, the sales of true wireless earphones have been rising. Only at the top end of the market, where IEMs (In-Ear Monitors) rule the roost, do I still see wired earphones jostling for a dwindling share of the non-wireless market.

The latest true wireless earphones to come in for review are from a brand I’ve not come across before. Like many other models on the market, these PaMu Quiet earphones include ANC (active noise cancelation) and boast the latest Qualcomm QCC5124 chipset using Bluetooth 5.0 plus support for aptX and AAC audio codecs, as well as Qualcomm’s cVc noise-canceling microphone circuitry.

Additionally, the PaMu Quiet
