Sound quality and Spatial Audio :

  • Of course, this is an obvious reason for Airpods Max’s price being high.
  • The Audio Quality of the AirPods Max is Unmatched and the best in the industry. You might find other headphones cheaper with a good brand name but still, they can’t beat this beast.
  • But the real killer is the “Spatial audio” feature. This feature is actually like a 3D sound effect as the name suggests Spatial meaning space. Spatial audio along with dynamic head trackinbrings theatre-like sound from video or audio so that sound seems like it’s coming from all around you like a 3D effect. You just need to get high-quality audio/video content to play and get immersed in that.
  • It has a feature of personalised Spatial Audio with dynamic head tracking that provides a theatre‑like experience.
  • All this is due to the built-in gyroscopes, accelerometers, H1 chip, Adaptive and Transparency mode.
  • And with Apple Music, Personalised Spatial Audio with dynamic head tracking places sound all around you to create a three-dimensional listening experience
  • Personalised Spatial Audio with dynamic head tracking gives you a theatre‑like experience for movies and shows, with a sound that surrounds you.

Comfort level:

  • They will make you feel like a king (which means they are Comfortable).
  • Comfort is very much required for a king. I assume we all feel like a king for ourselves.
  • Because of the premium material being used in the headphones, the looks and comfort have increased by many folds.
  • It has an uncompromising fit that creates the optimal acoustic seal.
  • The foam ear cups and stainless steel arms on the headband feel like a feather without a bird even though they are heavy but the weight has been distributed evenly so that you don’t feel 385 grams dumbbell on your head.
  • AirPods Max is so soft, cosy and cushy that you won’t feel like you are wearing anything on your head and ears. You don’t need to take out the headsets every few minutes or hours to give your ears some air. You can wear AirPods Max for hours and hours.

The Active Noise Cancelling:

  • AirPods Max noise cancellation technology is awesome even better than Jabra.
  • AirPods Max combines high-fidelity audio with industry-leading Active Noise Cancellation to deliver an unimagined listening experience.
  • We get an immersive listening experience by cancelling unwanted external sounds.
  • AirPods Max uses a total of six outward-facing microphones to detect noise in your environment, and two inward-facing microphones to measure what you’re hearing. Its microphones help to isolate your voice on phone calls, so it’s heard clearly. Doesn’t matter even in windy situations.
  • Noise cancellation doesn’t allow outside noise from reaching your ear and you can enjoy the music as it is without hearing the barking of your friend or an enemy.


In conclusion, we would say the AirPods Max is justified if you are filthy rich. If you don’t have enough to buy, then you can simply sell your heart or liver or kidney but as an alternative, we would suggest going for an alternative like Sennheiser or Sony or JBL.
