Apple AirPods Max : Christmas Surprise from Apple
This 2020 will be known as year of Apple events. Since Sept-2020, we have witnessed back-to-back events and now Apple silently launched the new over the ear headphones, the Apple AirPods Max, just before Christmas.
The Apple AirPods Max is available in 5 colors, Silver, Space Gray, Sky Blue, Pink & Green.
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. The canopy spanning the headband is made from a breathable knit mesh, distributing weight to reduce on-head pressure. The stainless steel frame wrapped with a soft-to-the-touch material for a remarkable combination of strength, flexibility and comfort. Telescoping arms smoothly extend and stay where you set them, for a consistent fit and seal. The beautifully anodised aluminium cups feature a mechanism that allows each cup to rotate independently and balance pressure. The ear foams are built with memory foam, thus very comfortable on ears and creates an immersive seal that is the foundation of incredible sound. The Digital Crown lets you precisely control volume, skip between tracks, answer phone calls and activate Siri.

Immersive Music Experience
AirPods Max combine high-fidelity audio with industry-leading Active Noise Cancellation to deliver an unparalleled listening experience. Each part of their custom-built driver works to produce sound with ultra-low distortion across the audible range. From deep, rich bass to accurate mids and crisp, clean highs, you’ll hear every note with a new sense of clarity. To cancel unwanted external sound, AirPods Max use a total of six outward-facing microphones to detect noise in your environment, and two inward-facing microphones to measure what you’re hearing. Beamforming microphones help isolate your voice on phone calls, so it’s heard clearly, even in windy situations.
The Apple-designed dynamic driver produces a wide frequency range that uncovers the rich details of every sound, delivering your favorite songs with previously unheard texture and accuracy. Modelled after those in high-end floor-standing speakers, the driver’s dual-neodymium ring magnet motor minimizes total harmonic distortion across the entire audible range. The result is consistently clear playback, even at full volume.
With a powerful Apple‑designed H1 chip in each cup, our custom acoustic design and advanced software, AirPods Max use computational audio to create a breakthrough listening experience. By tapping into each chip’s 10 audio cores, computational audio helps block outside noise, adapts audio to the fit and seal of your ear cushions, and makes movie scenes sound like they’re happening all around you.
Industry‑leading Active Noise Cancellation counters external sound with equal anti‑noise, allowing you to immerse yourself in what you’re listening to. Press the noise control button to switch to Transparency mode, which lets outside sound in so you can naturally interact with your surroundings.
Adaptive EQ tailors sound to the bespoke fit and seal created by the ear cushions. Inward-facing microphones measure what you’re hearing, then adjust the frequencies of your music to deliver a rich, consistent experience that faithfully reproduces every note. Spatial audio with dynamic head tracking gives you a theatre‑like experience for movies and shows, with sound that surrounds you. Using built-in gyroscopes and accelerometers, AirPods Max and your iPhone or iPad track the subtle motion of your head, anchoring sounds to your device.
It inherits the all features of Apple Audio ecosystem, i.e. One Touch connectivity, easy sharing between Apple devices. Also it pauses audio when you take it off and resume it again when you put it back. Overall seamless integration with Apple ecosystem, which is what expected from Apple, right!
In India, Apple AirPods Max starts at ₹59,900 & will be available from 15.Dec.2020.
