These headphones are unheard of, yet LeBron James already has a pair — or so fans believe.
In an Instagram gallery the basketball legend posted Wednesday, hawk-eyed techies believe they spotted Apple’s rumored “Beats Studio Buds” in James’ ears.
“Even though the Beats Studio Buds have yet to be officially introduced, a picture posted on LeBron James’ Instagram account today shows the NBA superstar apparently wearing the unreleased in-ear headphones,” wrote tech product news site PhoneArena, adding, “With 85.8 million followers of his Instagram account, companies like Apple don’t mind giving the rich and famous (like LeBron) their products to display on social media.”
Neither James, 36, nor Apple immediately returned The Post’s request for comment.
The headphones have been rumored among Apple sleuths since 2014, although the company has never confirmed their existence, the Sun reported. Rumor has it that, once they hit the market, they’ll include an oval-shaped charging case and be available in red, white or black.
Those closely following the headphones’ development believe the company may finally announce them at its virtual developer conference — WWDC 2021 — next month.
An FCC report this week hints that they may be right: The report, submitted by Apple, included two internal Apple reference numbers — A2512 and A2513 — and an image of packaging for and the product design of a device called Beats Studio Buds, PhoneArena wrote.
Of the 1.7 million accounts that have liked the post by James in the past day, however, those in the know about his top secret tech didn’t learn it from the image caption.
“Seize the opportunity, believe and take control of it Then get on your marathon and grind it ’til it’s over with!” James wrote.
Also this week, James called for more player protection in the NBA after a fan dumped popcorn on Wizards point guard Russel Westbrook.
