Apple has stepped into the headphones business to give the premium quality of sound, which is certainly heavy on customer’s pock. This premium headphone sells on the price tag of $549. Apple keeps up with its legacy of giving products that guarantee quality but can’t justify the price which they put. These headphones are sold out immediately after the launch, which identifies that the apple fans can go for anything dropped by Apple Company.
Airpods Max has all the latest features, which are necessary for sound performance and efficiency. As these are wireless headphones, it has to be efficient with battery timing in case someone takes them to a long flight. It comes with a case that covers the ear pads and also has a magnet that puts it into low battery usage mode. This indicates that you have to put them back in the case. Otherwise, it will be running music and draining the battery. The ear cups are changeable and are available for $69, which is once again a lot but a good option for users to get their favorite color combination going.
The main highlighted features are that it has active noise cancellation, which makes hearing very good, and it is possible because of eight microphones. These also give a great voice recording experience along with some additional features which can be accessed through these mics. On the ear cups, there is a button to activate Siri or to avail the various gestures of music like play, pause, and skip. Airpods max can give a battery timing of 20hours, which is decent but not something that screams to pay $549.
The build quality of these Airpods is great, having aluminum earpieces that are cold to touch, and the adjustments can be done smoothly and hold to their place. There are no clicks that give freedom to set them as per liking. The top of it is porous and light, but the overall weight of this headphone is not light as compared to other competitors in the market. Speaking of which, Sony Xm 4 is mostly compared by tech enthusiasts who come for $200 less and still have all the major features of Airpods max.
Airpods max comes in five colors and matches the theme colors of the iPhone and other Apple products. These colors include standard space gray, silver, sky blue, green, and pink. The ear cups are interchangeable with other colors, which are not selectable, but you have to purchase them separately. The sound quality of these headphones is great and provides high bass, and the frequency of sound is nearly perfect, and there are no sound cracks; however, all these qualities can be bought at a lower price which some additional features and better battery timing.
Apple has been giving great products to their fans, and this one is also great, but this price tag makes it very expensive in the headphone market. There are better options than these Airpods, but still, the die heart fans will go for these Airpods anyway to match their theme or to test out the new product.
