The best and worst AirPods Max details in one minute

Apple AirPods Max and iPhone

Apple’s AirPods Max have been in production since 2020 and, to date, are the only set of over-ear headphones that they’ve put out. There’s a good chance we’ll see a refresh on these award-winning cans in the near future, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t jump on the $100 discount on the originals now.

These over-ear cans come in five color options, all with a case. While we’re mentioning the case, let’s say it could use some improvement. It works as it should and provides some protection for the headphones, but it’s overall bulky and has a weird shape that doesn’t lend itself especially well to traveling or even popping in a backpack.

On the good side, AirPods Max from Apple have some of the best sound in the business. Spacial audio with head tracking makes the sounds of movies, TV shows, and music come alive in a whole new way, almost as if you’re sitting on stage with your favorite artist.

Noise cancellation is solid on these headphones, effectively blocking out exterior sounds of traffic and other people when you’re listening to a podcast or chatting with a friend.

The battery on the AirPods Max is strong for 20 hours of usage, which is pretty standard these days.

Who will like the AirPods Max?

If you’re deeply invested in the Apple ecosystem and want a more immersive sound experience than earbuds can provide, you’ll love the AirPods Max. And if you haven’t picked up a pair of Bluetooth headphones yet, it’s worth giving the AirPods Max a try. Trust me, you won’t be returning them.
