For the first time in recent memory, people are lining up outside a store to buy headphones — Apple’s new $250 AirPods Plus

People lined up to buy Apple's new $250 AirPods Pro at certain Apple stores on Wednesday morning when the wireless noise-cancelling earbuds were released.

This is … unusual. Lines for new iPhones, sure. But for headphones? I can't think of a pair of headphones that got so much interest that it caused people to line up to buy them.

There's no indication that anyone camped out overnight to get hold of the new AirPods, as sometimes happens with new iPhone releases. And not every Apple Store in the world had lines of people waiting to try the company's new earbuds.

But the fact that there were lines at all suggests healthy demand for Apple's new AirPods.
