Apple’s AirPods Max are extraordinary, but they are a bit expensive. The Airpods Max is Apple’s initial try at over-ear headphones – released last week at $549. They are a little pricey, almost doubling the value of a tech review site’s top over-ear and noise-cancelling headphones, Sony’s WH-1000XM4s. AirPods Max is a complete device powered by a considerable amount of technology inside. They are similar to the Dolby Dimensions, which had some of the greatest sounds of any over-ear headphones assessed, providing n close to home theater-like experience.
