Let’s get a detailed view for our tech lovers ????

Full metal jacket

The first thing we can notice while unboxing is that there is nothing out there in this range when it comes to its build quality when compared to other headsets.

The main reason for its heavyweight is that it has a lot of metal. Making it problematic for many people. Weighing 385 grams, Apple AirPods Max is heavy

It’s the best for Comfort

They are very comfortable surprisingly though it has a heavyweight., it has a headband designed in such a way that it takes a lot of pressure off from the top of our heads for those people who have neck problems. To stand out It has gel-like memory-foam earpads. Making it more breathable than the typical leather or faux leather out there in the market They have a fabric covering different from what is found in Sony WH-1000XM4.

The cutting-edge sound

With very superior sound quality, AirPods Max is completely at par with the existing high-end headphones. Its tight bass, crisp highs, and wide soundstage exceed the other headphones in some aspects when it comes to sound quality. Though it does not provide aptX or Sony’s LDAC codecs streaming platform and only runs on AAC streaming platform which makes it mostly non-compatible with many android devices.


AirPods Max with its arguably the best active noise cancellation technology has finally dethroned Sony’s WH 1000XM4 which had the best active noise cancellation in the market till now. But, the Bose’s 700 headphones slightly edge out in noise cancellation. Though, undoubtedly, the Apple AirPods Max has much clearer sound than all the other high-end headphones.

Only Two Buttons?

Yes! with only two buttons located on the right earcup on the headphones, apple has clearly shown its innovation skills. The front button is used to switch between noise cancellation and transparency mode and the second button is used as a controller for volume, answer and end calls, making the functions to control in a much easier and more efficient way.

Other worth noting features

To allow easy pairing and automatic switching with other iOS devices that you have on your iCloud account AirPods Max has Apple’s H1 chip. One can issue voice commands without touching any buttons as this feature goes with Siri too.

with noise cancellation on AirPods Max Battery life is rated at 20 hours. You will get 90 minutes of playback by the Lightning port from a 5-minute charge.

The controversial case is of the protective cover case that comes with the AirPods Max. It makes it easy to get on and off the headphones. The AirPods Max can get charged when they are there in the case. The magnet inside the clasp helps to save battery life as it puts headphones into a deep sleep mode. AirPods Max headphones do not have a power button that turns it off that’s where the controversy lies.

The final concluding thought-

We might feel it’s overrated If we try to compare AirPods Max features with its value. But performance-wise when compared with, the Sony WH-1000XM4 or Bose Noise Canceling Headphones 700 the AirPods Max delivers a high-end experience and stands out in a very crowded field of wireless headphones.

Classier and extravaganza it’s a must-buy for Apple lovers.
