Not too long ago, it seemed like every retailer was offering a steep discount on Apple’s AirPods Max. Then, suddenly, they all stopped. For the past few months, we’ve rarely seen the AirPods Max drop below $500 — that is, until this week. Now, for the second time this year, you can grab Apple’s on-ear headphones at Amazon for $449.99 ($100 off), which matches one of their best prices to date.
Even if they are still stuck with Apple’s aging Lightning port, there’s no better pair of headphones on the market for iPhone owners than the AirPods Max. They pair exceptionally well with other Apple devices, and their sound quality easily rivals other pairs of premium headphones. Yes, their noise cancellation isn’t quite as impressive as that of Sony’s WH-1000XM5 or Bose’s QuietComfort Ultra Headphones — they haven’t been updated since 2020, after all — but they still manage to tune out noise remarkably well. Plus, they’re a pair of headphones that actually feel high-end thanks to their plush design, which relies on a steel / aluminum build as opposed to the rigid plastic we see on many high-end headphones.
Apple’s AirPods Max feature exemplary build quality, sound phenomenal, and keep up with the best at noise cancellation.
Admittedly, there have been rumors of an AirPods Max refresh for some time now, perhaps with USB-C charging. It would also make sense for Apple to outfit them with its newer H2 chip, which would allow them to take advantage of Adaptive Audio, Personalized Volume, and some of the new software tricks Apple rolled out to the AirPods Pro last year. Nonetheless, if you’re looking to pick a pair of the AirPods Max up now, the current promo is the best one we’ve seen in months.
