If you think Apple was done with 2020, well guess again. Apple has just released a pair of over-ear headphones called the Airpod Max and here's everything you need to know.


Design.

The Airpod Max was designed for uncompromising fit and performance. It brings that magical experience to stunning over-ear design with high fidelity audio, active noise cancellation and transparency mode. 

Each part of their custom-built driver works to produce sound with ultra-low distortion across the audible range. From deep, rich bass to accurate mids and crisp, clean highs, you’ll hear every note with a new sense of clarity.

The machined aluminium earcups are connected by a unique suspension system enabling independent articulation to the telescoping arms of the headbands which flex effortlessly to fit a wide range of head shapes and sizes. It also comes with a warp-knit canopy, designed to maximise comfort, breathability and reduce on-head pressure.

The Earcups come with an acoustically optimised knit seamlessly surrounding the magnetically attached cushions to provide pillow-like softness while listening. These components work in harmony to maintain an outstanding over-ear seal.

The Airpod Max also comes with a Digital Crown ( inspired by the same feature on its popular Apple Watch). This is located at the top of the right earcups, it allows precise control of volume, phone calls, playback and it can also be used to activate Siri

Unlike the previous Airpod series, the Aipod Max comes in several stylish colour variations to choose from such as silver, pink, green, space grey and sky blue.


Audio Quality.

The Active noise cancellation uses a total of six outward-facing microphones to detect noise in your environment, and two inward-facing microphones to measure what you’re hearing, positioned to sense and block noise from any direction. A single button press activated Transparency mode which lets you here what around you and Spatial audio which utilises accelerometer and gyroscope to track head movement for immersive theatre-like sound.

With a powerful Apple‑designed H1 chip in each cup, Apple's custom acoustic design, and advanced software, AirPods Max uses computational audio to create a breakthrough listening experience. By tapping into each chip’s 10 audio cores, computational audio helps block outside noise, adapts audio to the fit and seal of your ear cushions, and makes movie scenes sound like they’re happening all around you.


User Experience and Connectivity.

AirPods Max inherits all of the wireless, effortless features of the AirPods family. From setup to Siri commands, they make the listening experience completely fluid. AirPods Max connects immediately to your iPhone or iPad. To pair, simply place the AirPods Max near your device and tap Connect on your screen. It also supports seamless switching and audio switching which let you easily share an audio stream between two sets of AirPods on your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Apple TV.
