AirPods Max Are a Frustratingly Wonderful Experience ➝

Marius Masalar, an actual audiophile, revising the AirPods Max:

They frustrate me because you can tell that these could have been disruptively perfect. If Apple had made them lighter, chosen better materials, made them fold properly, given them a useable case, included the damn 3.5mm audio cable—even if they’d kept the price—the AirPods Max would be an easy recommendation.

As it is though, I have no idea who I would recommend these to. I think anyone—even audiophiles—should find a way to audition them just for fun. But actually dropping this much money to own a pair? I don’t know.

In short, the headphones sound great, much better than Marius was expecting. But they have some downsides that very well could be a deal breaker for some.

AirPods Max ➝

These were announced a couple days ago, but I’ve just now had a chance to dig into the news. I’m not much of an over-ear headphone user and these are pretty expensive, but I sort-of want a pair.

I spend a lot of time with my standard AirPods in. I love them and all their integration with my devices — the automatic switching, quick switching within Control Center, and whatnot. But I feel like it would be beneficial for me to spend a little less time with something in my ears.

The AirPods Max seem like a great pair of desk headphones — the bulky pair that you use when you’re at home because of their audio quality, comfort, and noise cancelation. They would essentially be my work headphones, keeping the standard AirPods for the times when portability is more important.
