Introducing APPLE AirPods Max

Updated: Feb 19, 2021

AirPods Max

Introducing AirPods Max — a perfect balance of exhilarating high-fidelity audio and the effortless magic of AirPods. The ultimate personal listening experience is here.

Design A radically original composition. The over-ear headphone has been completely reimagined. From cushion to canopy, AirPods Max are designed for an uncompromising fit that creates the optimal acoustic seal for many different head shapes — fully immersing you in every sound.

The canopy spanning the headband is made from a breathable knit mesh, distributing weight to reduce on‑head pressure. The stainless steel frame is wrapped with a soft-to-the-touch material for a remarkable combination.
