As soon as we told you about the fresh rumors, according to which Apple was supposed to present new headphones this week, the company from Cupertino announced AirPods Max.
These are premium headphones, which is primarily indicated by the cost of the device – $ 549. It will be possible to test the sound quality in practice in a week – the first deliveries are scheduled for December 15, and the pre-order started today.
AirPods Max is available in five colors: Space Gray, Silver, Sky blue, Green and Pink. The appearance of the headphones is as minimalistic as possible and very elegant, as for me. The headband is made interestingly. In the decoration is used, a breathable knitted mesh material. The frame is made of stainless steel. The telescopic temples allow you to place the headphones on your head as comfortably as possible. The ear cushions are made of special acoustic memory foam. They are removable and magnetically attached to the headphones.
Sound reproduction is handled by 40mm drivers that deliver “deep, rich bass, precise mids, and crisp, clear highs so every note can be heard.” Also installed are two H1 chips (one in each ear cup). AirPods Max has active noise cancellation (using eight microphones for its operation), support technology for surround sound, adaptive equalizer, “transparency” mode, and the function “share audio.” There are only two controls: the Digital Crown wheel from the Apple Watch, which allows you to adjust the volume, control playback, and activate Siri, as well as a button to switch between active noise cancellation and transparency mode.
