Amazon quickly realized that the price charged for AirPods Max is far too high to sell off quickly on a large scale. As a result, the American merchant has continuously lowered the price of Apple’s wireless headphones since its launch.
Initially at 629 euros, then very quickly dropped to 549 euros and up to 509 euros, AirPods Max are now available at 489 euros on Amazon, either the lowest price observed to date.
To better understand the offer
- Why are AirPods Max so expensive?
Because it’s an Apple product. More seriously, the AirPods Max simply do not play in the same court as Sony or Bose, the two behemoths in the sector, if only for the materials used, ranging from metal to anodized aluminum to steel. stainless. The Apple helmet exudes solidity and comfort once on the head, although it is a bit heavy with 400 grams on the scale. Almost everything is well thought out, like the adjustable headband with mesh fabric to ideally distribute the weight while letting the hair breathe. The only drawback in terms of design is that the helmet does not fold and must imperatively be stored in its case to be recharged.
In addition to this, the AirPods Max offer an excellent sound experience, even clearly bluffing thanks to an active noise reduction which is currently the best on the market. Its 40mm transducers and motor with two neodymium magnetic rings to limit distortion, coupled with the excellent H1 chip, deliver rich, detailed sound for all types of music. Even at full volume, the distortions are quite low. In addition, there is even a spatialization for the sound – like the AirPods Pro – in order to enjoy Dolby Atmos, 5.1 or 7.1 sound for compatible content and devices.
- I have an iPhone, should I be convinced?
If you already own an Apple device, you can fully enjoy the experience offered by AirPods Max, especially through features new to the Apple ecosystem. We find for example the automatic pairing or the Transparency mode, which, in one click, will allow you to hear outside noises – and incidentally to have a conversation without removing your headset – in the best possible way with perfectly clear sounds, intelligible, without distortion and even slightly accentuated.
The helmet will also receive new features with iOS 15, including one inspired by AirTags with alerts in the event of forgetting. You can then search nearby and on Apple’s Find My network to find your AirPods Max. Spatial audio is already available on Apple Music and will arrive this time with compatible content on Mac and Apple TV. It will even be possible to convert any stereo source on headphones to this format.
