This model of AirPods Max is more rose gold than pink, but you’ll want to make sure you like the color. (If not, you can always swap out the ear cushions.) If you don’t mind the hue, you’re getting nothing short of tremendous sound quality with Apple’s trademark design. You also get expanded Find My support and spatial audio with dynamic head tracking for music and videos. In our review, we called the AirPods Max “opulent” with “sound quality on par or even slightly better than their competitors, and superior noise-cancelling.” We also lamented their high price, which is less of an issue at $129 off.
Even at this price, the AirPods Max are definitely expensive, but if you’ve been itching to but a pair, now’s the time to act.
Michael Simon has been covering Apple since the iPod was the iWalk. His obsession with technology goes back to his first PC—the IBM Thinkpad with the lift-up keyboard for swapping out the drive. He’s still waiting for that to come back in style tbh.
