They feature powerful H1 chips, nine microphones, 40mm drivers and tons of sensors. The AirPods Max feature Spatial Audio which provides an immersive listening experience. This state-of-the-art audio technology creates the illusion of a 360-degree soundscape.

In our AirPods Max review, we praise the headphones' gorgeous design, great sound quality and powerful active noise-cancelling. We gave the AirPods Max a high rating of 4.5 out of 5-stars, backed by our Editor's Choice cosign. During testing, our reviewer used the AirPods Max to listen to Lil Nas X’s, “Montero" (Call Me By Your Name) his vocals seemingly echoed from both sides. 

Apple engineers thoughtfully designed the AirPods Max to be minimalist, chic and comfortable. Our reviewer wore them for nine and a half hours and had no complaints. The headphones' mesh fabric-covered memory foam ear cups keep the ears cozy and dry. 

With a weight of 13.6 ounces and measuring 7.4 x 6.6 x 3.3 inches, the AirPods Max are heavier than competitors. They weigh more than the Bose Noise-Canceling 700 Headphones (9 ounces, 8 x 6.5 x 2-inches) and Sony WH-1000XM5 (8.8 ounces).

The AirPods Max are rarely discounted this much, so don't hesitate too long.
