The Apple AirPods Max is like nothing else in the headphone market. Distinctly Apple, the AirPods Max brings the simplicity of AirPods to an over-ear design - combining luxurious stainless steel and anodised aluminium with soft mesh plus custom acoustic design including H1 chips, and advanced software to power computational audio for a breakthrough listening experience with Adaptive EQ, Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency mode, and spatial audio.

From the canopy to the ear cushions, every part of AirPods Max have been carefully crafted to provide you with exceptional acoustic performance. The breathable knit mesh canopy, spanning the headband, is made to distribute weight and reduce on-head pressure. The stainless steel headband frame provides strength, flexibility, and comfort for a wide variety of head shapes and sizes. Telescoping headband arms smoothly extend and stay in place to maintain the desired fit.

A revolutionary mechanism attaches each ear cup to the headband, balancing and distributing ear cup pressure by independently pivoting and rotating to fit the unique contours of your head. Acoustically engineered memory foam creates an effective seal — a critical factor in delivering immersive sound. The Digital Crown, inspired by Apple Watch, offers precise volume control and the ability to play or pause audio, skip tracks, answer or end phone calls, and activate Siri.

AirPods Max features a 40-mm Apple-designed dynamic driver producing rich, deep bass, accurate mid-range, and crisp, clean high-frequency extension so every note can be heard. A unique dual neodymium ring magnet motor allows AirPods Max to maintain total harmonic distortion of less than 1 per cent across the entire audible range, even at maximum volume.

Equipped with an Apple-designed H1 chip in each ear cup, a custom acoustic design, and advanced software, AirPods Max use computational audio to deliver the highest-quality listening experience possible. Utilising each of the chips’ 10 audio cores — capable of 9 billion operations per second — computational audio powers a breakthrough listening experience that includes Adaptive EQ, Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency mode, and spatial audio.

The AirPods Max headphones feature a great battery life with up to 20 hours of high-fidelity audio, talk time, or movie playback with Active Noise Cancellation and spatial audio enabled. Additionally, the AirPods Max come with a soft, slim Smart Case that puts AirPods Max in an ultra-low power state that helps to preserve battery charge when not in use.

Stainless steel frame

Wrapped with a soft-to-the-touch material the stainless steel frame provides a remarkable combination of strength, flexibility and comfort.

Telescoping arms

Unlike other headphones, there are no annoying ratcheting clicks when adjusting. The Apple AirPods Max's telescoping arms smoothly extend and stay where you set them.

Anodised aluminium cups

High-end Sound with industry-leading Active Noise Cancellation

AirPods Max combines 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.

Computational Audio
With a powerful Apple‑designed H1 chip in each cup plus custom‑engineered acoustic design and advanced software, AirPods Max use computational audio to create a breakthrough listening experience.

  • By tapping into each H1 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, letting outside sound in so you can interact naturally with your surroundings.

Adaptive EQ
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.

Head-tracking sound
Spatial audio with dynamic head tracking gives you a theatre-like experience for movies and shows recorded in 5.1, 7.1, and Dolby Atmos. 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.

Immersive listening | Active Noise Cancellation

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.

  • 6 noise detecting microphones
  • 2 microphones measure what you're hearing
  • Beamforming microphones help isolate your voice for calls

Hear every detail | Apple-designed wide-frequency-driver

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.

Distortionless playback | Dual neodymium ring magnets

Modelled on those in high-end floor-standing speakers, the driver’s motor uses dual neodymium ring magnets to minimise total harmonic distortion across the entire audible range. The result is consistently clear playback, even at full volume.
