The AirPods Max also received full disassembly

IFixit showed what costs 235 thousand forints on these headphones.


Nowadays, the complexity of the headphones goes far beyond what we experienced a few years ago, so iFixit is increasingly looking to show off the inside of such products and assess their serviceability: this time the AirPods Max has been autopsied. their description shows that the screws in the headphones are typically equipped with the usual pentalobe head from Apple, but the grille is not locked by conventional threads, but by 90-degree wedges, but of course not only do they hold the “grill” in place, but a layer glue as well.

It’s gratifying that it’s not full of wires inside either

The two-cell battery pack is on the right side, however, the left and right sides do not appear to be unbalanced. The battery has a capacity of 2.54 Wh, which is significantly lower than, for example, the Sony WH-1000XM4 (4.1 Wh), but for the Bose Headphones 700 (2.39 Wh) even bigger. The hinge has been solved with electromechanical connection to maintain rotatability, this is likely to be a more durable solution than running wires inside the middle.


Overall, the AirPods Max has become a surprisingly service-friendly design, with a 6/10 rating in AirPods history obviously outstanding (1 is the worst, 10 the best to mount), but overall it can’t be called bad. According to iFixit, the high level of quality typical of Apple can be found massively inside, even Sony or Bose alternatives can be much less appealing inside.
