Apple Air Pods Max

They come in several colors like silver, sky blue, green, and pink. There is a noise control button on the right earcup. This allows the user to switch between noise cancellation and transparency. Transparency mode allows some sounds from the environment to pass through. These headphones come with a smart case. In the smart case, the headphones automatically go on a power-saving mode when they are not being used. This state is called the “ultra-power state”. These headphones have the most excellent sound quality which is well balanced with a wide range. They are perfect for listening to any genre of music.

They have active noise cancellation capability and 8 microphones for this property. They are equipped with an adaptive EQ. They have spatial audio with dynamic head tracking. For voice pickup, airport max has three microphones. Each ear has one H1 headphone chip. As for the buttons, there is one single dial on top of the headphones. You have to turn it in for volume control. Press it once for play, pause, or to answer the call. Press the button twice to skip forward. Press the button three times to skip back. Press and hold the button for Siri.


Cons of Apple Air Pods Max

The biggest con about these headphones is their price. They are more expensive than the best over-the-ear phones available in the market right now like the Sony WH-1000XM4 etc. the other notable thing which the critics are disappointed by is the design. It has rather flat, stainless steel earcups which are not ergonomically friendly at all as they are uncomfortable to wear. A user cannot function normally i.e., lie in bed while wearing these big stainless steel hefty headphones. They are extremely dense and heavy on the head as well... They do not have a physical control but instead swipe controls which are not very favorable for a headset. It seems that the target audience for these headphones is regular users of apple customers who already have an iPhone, MacBook, apple watch, and Siri because for an Android user these headphones which just be an overpriced set of noise-canceling headphones. One of the major setbacks int eh fact that it does not have a 3.5mm audio part. This means that the user cannot listen to music if they do not have a USB to attack the headphones. The material choice and the design of the headphone case have also been heavily criticized. It has been stated by several users that the silicon-type material of the case makes it vulnerable to scratches, smudges, and dust. Moreover, the case hardly protects the earphones as it leaves the top headband completely open.
