AirPods Max sounds lively and delivers energetic sound quality

Announced in December 2020, the AirPods Max are among the best headphones you can find on the market. They feature active noise cancellation and Spatial Audio for dynamic head tracking. They deliver excellent sound quality and, like other AirPods, slide seamlessly into the Apple ecosystem. (Apple further improved Spatial Audio on the AirPods Max in iOS 16, released last week.)

In Cult of Mac‘s AirPods Max review, we found that Apple’s premium headphones have “energetic” sound quality, which makes listening to music and movies truly exciting.

The mesh headband’s steel stems branch out like tuning forks a couple of inches above each ear cup. The headband also acts as a handle to carry the headphones around when in their unusual-looking Smart Case.

If you are looking for a pair of premium over-ear headphones that work flawlessly with your iPhone and other Apple products, the AirPods Max is the obvious choice. With automatic device switching, they effortlessly move back and forth between iPhone, iPad and Mac.

Get the AirPods Max with a massive 22% discount

AirPods Max carries an MSRP of $549. That makes them exorbitantly expensive, even compared to the competition from Bose and Sony. But if you are set on buying the AirPods Max, you can grab them on Amazon with a $120 discount.

The headphones are available at their discounted price of $429 in pink, green, sky blue and space gray shades. Only the silver color is not in stock as of now. The deal may not last for long, so get the model you want as soon as possible.
