Launched at a prohibitive price, the AirPods Max is clearly not within the reach of all budgets. And even if the quality comes at Apple, it is possible to find the headset for a few tens of euros less. The best example can be found at Amazon, which offers headphones for 519 euros instead of the 629 euros at the start.
With the success of the Airpods, it was hard to imagine Apple stopping so well in the audio field. Landed at the end of last year, the Airpods Max is what is best in the brand in this segment despite a price that can put off more than one. The best deal to get one is from Amazon, but there are also good prices from Boulanger, Fnac and Darty.

To learn more about the Airpods Max
Apple definitely does not like to be like the others and the design of the AirPods Max makes it clear. This is felt first by the materials used, because when its competitors still rely mainly on plastic, Apple has chosen a stainless steel hoop with a mesh fabric headband to let the skull breathe. Obviously this has an impact on the weight since the Airpods Max weighs no less than 385 grams which is already much more than a Sony WH-1000XM4 and its 264 grams. The magic still operates once the headset is screwed on the head, with a very pleasant feeling reinforced by the ear cushions made of memory foam.
The helmet also incorporates physical buttons, unlike the touch controls of certain models of helmets. In addition, they are very identifiable thanks to their large size. One is designed to activate active noise reduction, the other corresponds to Digital Crown, which is also found on the Apple Watch and which allows you to perform some actions such as volume control or changing the track on the fly.
We talked about it, active noise reduction is also part of the Airpods Max. But Apple has thought of a better integration of this functionality in particular by the contribution of the six microphones oriented towards the outside which capture the ambient sounds to cut them completely to the ear of the user. This technique makes the reduction even more effective than the competition. But this system is not only used to attenuate the noises, but also to amplify them via a transparency mode allowing to hear perfectly what is happening around you and even to have a conversation without having to put the headset back. her head.
Obviously, all of its options should not put aside the quality of the sound rendering to the side. The Airpods Max offers high-level performance in the field thanks to the contribution of its 40 mm transducers and a distortion limiter to obtain the purest sound possible. In addition, the house H1 chip works to process the sound signal to transcribe the sound as faithfully as possible from any source. To top it off, the headset incorporates a sound spatialization system to take advantage of the emulation of 5.1, 7.1 and even Dolby Atmos.
Its only small weak point is perhaps on the side of the autonomy which is neither more nor less than the average of the audio headsets on the market. The Airpods Max can last a little over 20 hours on a full charge. It recharges via the proprietary Lightning port, Apple still not having passed the USB-C step.
