High-end fidelity sound
One thing you can’t take away from this over the ear headphones, as revealed in our Apple Airpods Max review, is their brilliant sounds. Like other high-end headphones on the market, the Airpod Pro Max review boasts natural mids, tight bass, a crisp sound as well as a wide soundstage.
And even though Apple features easy to navigate EQ settings, which you can find under Music in Settings to make special customization, we found out that the default sound profile of the Apple Airpods Max does a pretty decent job than you’ll ever get with the i16 Max Airpods review.
Keep in mind that the Airpods Max is missing some unique audiophile features available on the i10 Max Airpods review. To give you some perspective, our Apple Airpods Max review shows that this headphone can only stream ACC. This means it doesn’t support AaptX HD or Sony’s LDAC codecs.
The Airpods Max build
Another notable feature of the Airpods Max is its brilliant case, which many have humorously referred to as a gun holster or a bra.
Besides the fact that the case looks daft, it also doesn’t perform some of the essential functions of protecting the product from scratches, dirt, and knocks.
That said, the case is still very useful as it slides the Airpods Max into an ultra low power mode that helps preserve the charge for many months.
Compared to the i10 Max Airpods review case, the case for Apple Airpods Max review doesn’t do so much, and that’s a shame, especially considering the ridiculous price of the headphones.
Weighty but comfortable and airy
Although the Airpods Max is made from quality aluminum and stainless steel, it feels a lot more luxurious than the i16 Max Airpods review. That said, this over the ear headphones is a bit weighty as it weighs nearly 385g.
But not to worry, the weight comes from the ear cups and not the headband. This ensures that the device is well balanced on your head. Even if you tilt your head backward or forward, the headband securely stays in place, which is pretty fascinating about the Airpod Pro Max review.
We love the fact that the earcups are super comfortable. As a matter of fact, the pads are specially made out of memory foam and coated with a woven fabric that keeps out sweat.
King of noise-canceling
When it comes to active noise canceling, not even the i16 Max Airpods review does it better than the Apple Airpods Max. This brilliant headphone uses microphones to detect and cancel out unwanted sounds before they hit your eardrum.
Compared to other headphones on the market, Apple Airpods Max noise cancellation technology is second to none as it can handle anything from roadside noise to the roaring sounds of boiler to drone noise and more.
We like that the headphone comes with an impressive transparency mode that lets you hear the world around you, even when you have the Airpods Max on.
The only thing we don’t like is that the Airpods Max bleeds sound. This means people sitting around you can hear what you’re listening to when the volume is rocked high.
Superb battery life
When it comes to battery life, Apple Airpod Max doesn’t disappoint. Even when you have active noise-canceling activated, this earphone will deliver up to 20 hours of playtime. With active noise-canceling switched off, it will last even longer.
Surprisingly, during our Apple Airpods Max review, we discovered that this device only takes two hours to recharge fully.
Pricing and availability
In terms of pricing, the Apple Airpods Max doesn’t come cheap. So if you’re looking for something less pricey, you can check the i10 Max Airpods review or the i16 Max Airpods review.
That said, the Apple Airpods Max cost a whopping $549 in the US and £549 in the UK.
You can also order them directly from eBay, Amazon, Best Buy, and other retail platforms.
The Apple Airpods Max has managed to stand out in a crowded market, and that’s all thanks to its impressive specs and fantastic performance. Although it is big and expensive, we love the fact that it is super comfortable and delivers exactly as promised.
As is very common with other Apple earbuds, the Apple Airpods Max review packs monster features like spatial audio, automatic switching, and instant pairing. We also love the fact that it is compatible with non-Apple gears.
If you’re on the market for a brilliant earbud that lives up to its promises, you’ll not be disappointed to give this one a try.
