Introducing AirPods Max — a perfect balance of exhilarating high-fidelity audio and the effortless magic of AirPods. The ultimate personal listening experience is here.
A radically original composition.
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 — fully immersing you in every sound.
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 revolutionary mechanism that allows each cup to rotate independently and balance pressure.
A custom-designed mesh textile wraps the ear cushions to provide pillow-like softness while listening.
Crafted with acoustically engineered memory foam , the ear cushions gently create 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.
Sounds like an epiphany.
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.
Hear every detail
The Apple-designed dynamic driver produces a wide frequency range that uncovers the rich details of every sound — delivering your favourite songs with previously unheard texture and accuracy.
Modelled after those in high-end floor-standing speakers , the driver’s dual-neodymium ring magnet motor minimises total harmonic distortion across the entire audible range. The result is consistently clear playback , even at full volume.
Computational audio. Key to performance.
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.1 Using built-in gyroscopes and accelerometers , AirPods Max and your iPhone , iPad , Mac or Apple TV track the subtle motion of your head , anchoring sounds to your device.
And with Apple Music , spatial audio with dynamic head tracking places sound all around you to create a three-dimensional listening experience.
