Apple AirPods Max review

 

The Apple AirPods Max come close to audio perfection, but will let down audiophiles and Android users.

Unbelievable audio performance Fantastic user experience Brilliant extra features for iOS Great noise cancellation

Very expensive No 3.5mm audio port Limited features for Android Ineffective carrying case

The Apple AirPods Max are among the best-sounding headphones we've ever tested, they're easy to use, and their noise cancellation can easily stand up to the likes of the Sony WH-1000XM4 and the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700. However, their high...

Apple AirPods Max review

 

Apple's first on-ear headphones justify their huge price tag

Superb audio and noise-cancelling ; Cinematic spatial audio ; Exceptional build quality

Near-pointless case ; Audio cable not included ; Practically Apple-only

Sonically speaking, the AirPods Max don’t put a foot wrong – these are hands-down the best wireless noise-cancellers you can buy

Apple AirPods Max review: phenomenal sound, comfortable design, eye-watering price

 

AirPods Max are an incredible piece of engineering, it's just a shame the cost will put them out of reach for so many

Hands on: Apple AirPods Max review

 

Our first impressions in the run up to our full Apple AirPods Max review.

Fantastically wide soundstage Well-balanced audio Slick controls

No 3.5mm audio port Smart Case doesn't feel very protective Very expensive

The Apple AirPods Max are the tech giant's first over-ear headphones, and so far we're impressed with the audio quality and noise cancellation – but we're not entirely sure that the design, and the absence of a 3.5mm audio port justifies the high price...

Apple AirPods Max review: Premium headphones with a premium price

 

We've been listening to Apple's over-ear headphones, the AirPods Max. Is the steep asking price to excess or does the quality justify it?

Great sound and active noise-cancelling (ANC) ; No plastics ; Ease of setting up and running ; Spatial Audio delivers convincing three-dimensional audio

Not foldable ; Weighty due to metal ; Carry case could be more robust ; Very expensive ; No 3.5mm jack ; Spatial Audio not for Apple TV yet

The high asking price will make the over-ear AirPods a luxury rather than a mass-market product, which is a shame as the sound quality and active noise-cancelling (ANC) is superb - but much of the competition offers such features for a cut of the cash.

AirPods Max review

 

The AirPods Max sound incredible and feel like a true luxury item, but odd design choices may frustrate potential buyers.

Incredible sound quality ; Premium build ; Great ANC ; Impressive smarts

Limited Android support ; No power button ; An ill-designed Smart Case ; No Lossless support

The AirPods Max are outstanding over-ear headphones for iOS users, boasting exceptional audio quality, great ANC capabilities and one of the most true-to-life transparency modes I've experienced, but software frustrations and the lack of a power button...

Apple AirPods Max Review

 

Apple's premium headphones cost an absolute fortune, but is their sound quality similarly rich? Find out in our concise review.

— They look lovely, and sound superb

— Very expensive, very heavy, and there are a few ergonomic pitfalls

If you’re an audiophile Apple devotee who has money to burn and wants everyone else to know, then the Apple AirPods Max were made with you in mind; waste no time, and go grab yourself a pair.

Apple AirPods Max review

 

Maximum impact?

Rich and detailed sound ; Superb noise-cancelling ; Spatial audio enhances TV and movies ; They just work

Very expensive ; Uncomfortable if worn for long periods ; So-so battery life ; Really bad case

Apple’s first over-ears are big, heavy, often brilliant, and far too expensive

Apple AirPods Max review: Magnificent headphones – for Apple users

 

Spatial Audio and superb noise cancelling are standouts for Apple's AirPods Max - a great pair of headphones for Apple users

Good sound quality ; Awesome noise cancelling ; Spatial Audio is stunning

Heavy ; Fit isn’t 100% secure ; Case only partially protects headphones

Spatial Audio, like many aspects of the Apple AirPods Max, is seriously impressive. It’s wonderfully convincing and, coupled with the headphones’ all-round audio quality, impressive noise cancellation and transparency mode, contributes to a super...

Apple AirPods Max review: Most fun headphones ever

 

Apple's first over-ear headphones are top-tier performers in almost every regard, but one critical aspect may be a deal-breaker.

Best-in-class ANC ; Amazing transparency mode ; Excellent build quality ; Excellent sound quality ; Top-notch call quality

Charges via Lightning cable ; Heavy on head
