AirPods Max Review: The First-Ever Apple’s Over-Ear Headphone

AirPods Max Review

Expectations were expected to be high with Apple's first-ever over-the-ear wireless headphones. But its hefty price tag might be a deterrent, even for Apple fans. Check out the simple AirPods Max Review for a quick guide. 

Love it or hate it, but you can’t stop yourself from paying attention to what Apple is up to. Probably known as the most expensive gadgets manufacturing company in the world, Apple has again surprised its fans with new and first-time launched over-the-ear headphones at an over-the-budget price tag. Well, the heavy price segment is nothing new for a company like Apple and the best thing is Apple gadgets are worth paying a heavy amount. 

Priced at $822.83 (approx INR 59,990 in India) Apple AirPods Max are completely different as designed to beat the market leaders Boss and Sony with its premium noise-cancellation feature. However, the classy design and premium features have lots of convincing power if compared to price. 

Apple AirPods Max Summary

Apple’s first over-ear headphones are claimed to deliver high-end audio. Let’s start with the design and comfortability of the headphone. However, the AirPods Max is the most expensive audio product of Apple’s line up, but they are beautiful, comfortable, and luxurious pair of headphones, compatible with Apple smartphones, tablets, and laptops

With amazing sound quality, excellent active noise cancellation (ANC), and seamless connectivity, the Apple AirPods Max is one of the best headphones that you can buy today. All thanks to the 40mm dynamic drivers from Apple and its proprietary H1 chip. The headphones have a total of nine microphones, eight of which assist the ANC function to block noise from all directions. Also, it has a single-button transparency mode. 

Other Apple AirPods Max specs include spatial audio with dynamic head tracking, which essentially uses accelerometer and gyroscope sensors to track head movement and optimize sound in real-time. Also, it includes optical and position sensors to detect when the headphone is removed from the ears or when the ear cup is lifted to pause the sound. Additionally, an adaptive EQ to optimize sound for different genres of music. All these sound features make the sound quality sharp and clear and allow listeners to enjoy the song.   

This headphone is wireless that can be connected to your device through Bluetooth v5. The device has a dedicated noise control button to switch between ANC and Transparency mode. It also has a digital crown on the top of the right ear cup to play/pause/skip tracks, activates Siri, and, crucially, control the volume precision. 

However, the battery life and power consumption are somewhat a painful point. The headphone claims to deliver up to 20 hours of listening time on a single charge with ANC enabled which could be better. Its 5 minutes charge provides just an hour of usage. The device is available in five vibrant colors - Silver, Space Grey, Sky Blue, Pink, and Green.

Altogether, AirPods Max is a luxurious device that is worth considering if you’re already in the Apple Ecosystem.
