AirPods Max review: Stunning sound and premium design come at a ludicrously high price
THE AirPods Max took us all by surprise with a very late launch from Apple. These wireless headphones get a premium look and a price to match… so are they worth your money? Here’s our full AirPods Max review.
When Apple held its “One More Thing” event back in November, we assumed its new M1-powered MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac Mini would be the final product launches of the year. However, the US technology firm wasn’t done for 2020 and definitely saved one of its most exciting new products until last. The new AirPods Max landed without any warning before the Christmas rush.
We’ll come to the case a bit later in this review, but one thing we do want to clear up is the AirPods Max really don’t look bad once you pop them on your ears. In fact, for our money, we prefer AirPods Max metal design to the plasticky feel of Sony’s WH-1000XM4s.
