Are there more than 3 headphones with a W1 chip on the entire plant?

I've got the AirPods and I love how convenient they are to pair. I'd like another set of over the ear headphones but don't want Beats. Am I out of options?

I posted about this a while ago on another thread.

Apple has said in the past that they won't license the chip, so don't expect this to change.

Yep W1 chip is beats or Airpods only. I would expect that the rumored Apple branded over the ear headphones will include it (or an upgraded W2 chip) however being just a rumor it's impossible to know what we'll get, when we'll get it, and how much it will cost.
