Apple ceasing sales of third-party headsets, says Bloomberg

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman this evening reports that Apple has removed third-party headsets from its online sales and direct staff to stop selling them as the company gears up for its own "over-ear" headphones.

Apple has removed headphones from third parties from its Web site, including those of Sonos Inc., Bose Corp., and Logitech International SA, and staff at physical retail stores were told to remove the items from shelves, according to a report this evening from Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, citing "checks" by Bloomberg.
