Sale of Adorama on AirPods Max wireless headphones may be gone, but Amazon’s latest sales are almost as good. Each color of Apple’s premium headphones, except the space gray, currently drops to $ 455 on Amazon, which is about $ 94 lower than their usual price. That’s also only $ 5 more than the sales we saw at Adorama late last week, so if you missed the opportunity to grab a pair, you have another chance today.
One of our biggest drawbacks with AirPods Max is their price. Usually $ 550, these are the best headphones Apple can offer – but despite how much we liked them, we still thought they were on the steep side. We recommend that you wait for the sale before you decide because AirPods Max is a much cheaper purchase when discounted like this.
They made money result 84 from us thanks in part to excellent sound, solid ANC and reliable touch controls. AirPods Max have a more balanced sound than the competition, with bass that goes nicely but isn’t overbearing. Active noise cancellation on these cans is retained compared to that of Bose and Sony devices, even if we prefer the latter two for this function. Max also has a Transparency mode, which allows you to easily jump in and out of a conversation when needed. And you get spatial audio support on iPhones, iPads, Macs, and soon on Apple TV.
All of this, plus Max’s unique yet sleek design, makes them solid wireless headphones, but the features brought by their built-in H1 chip make them even better for those living in Apple’s ecosystem. In addition to hands-free Siri, you’ll also get fast pairing and switching between all your Apple devices. While still expensive at this retail price, AirPods Max is a good option for Apple fans who want a pair of wireless headphones that sound great and work seamlessly with their devices.
