The more affordable option could arrive with a new generation of AirPods Max, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says.

A tech analyst is predicting cheaper AirPods and a new generation of AirPods Max could ship as early as late 2024 or early 2025. Apple is aiming for a price of $99 for its budget earbuds, Ming-Chi Kuo said on Twitter Wednesday.

That price would beat Apple’s suggested price for its most affordable AirPods (second generation) by $30. The second-generation AirPods have regularly retailed for $99 from other sellers, like Amazon, in recent months. The current generation of AirPods Max headphones have a suggested retail price of $549.

Apple sells its third-generation AirPods for $169 and its second-generation AirPods Pro for $249.
