Beats Solo 4 dethroned?

Bearing immense resemblance to Apple’s AirPods Max, with thin, customisable stems that seem to be made of metal, we can say that the headphones might penetrate the headphones market as a formidable contender against Apple headphones, and might as well compete with the Beats Solo 4, considering its design and overall visual appeal. 

On the other hand, a separate rumour indicates that the new Sonos Ace wireless headphones could carry in the box, claiming a protective case with a USB-C cable, a 3.5mm adapter, and a small, mysterious black box are what is expected with the headphones.

Since all we discussed is based on rumours, having a say on technical specifications would not be morally good. The only confirmed information is that the headphones will be closely integrated with Sonos speakers. 

Previous leaks indicated that the Sonos Ace wireless headphones might be priced at around $450. Schuurman's website has them listed at €403.58, supporting these speculations, $100 less than Apple's AirPods Max as Apple's AirPods Max are priced at $549.
