JOURNEY INTO SOUND Discover a new era of flawless audio with the AirPods Max. Machined aluminium ear cups connect by a unique suspension system, enabling independent articulation to the telescoping arms of the headband. These components work in harmony to maintain an exceptional over-ear seal; the foundation for its incredible sound. Custom drivers deliver high-fidelity playback with ultra-low distortion across the entire audible range. A pair of Apple-designed H1 chips allow computational audio features like Adaptive EQ, which tailors sound to your bespoke fit by measuring and then adjusting what you’re hearing up to 200 times per second. Active Noise Cancellation uses eight microphones positioned to sense and block noise from any direction. A single button press activates Transparency mode, letting you hear what’s around you. Spacial audio tracks head movement for immersive, theatre-like sound. The Digital Crown allows precise control of volume and playback. Enjoy up to 20 hours of listening time with this magical audio experience that sets a new standard for over-ear headphones. A NEW ERA OF AUDIO 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. MESH CANOPY The canopy spanning the headband is made from a breathable knitted mesh, distributing weight to reduce on-head pressure. STAINLESS STEEL FRAME The stainless steel frame is wrapped with a soft-to-the-touch material for a remarkable combination of strength, flexibility and comfort. TELESCOPING ARMS Telescoping arms smoothly extend and stay where you set them, for a consistent fit and seal. ALUMINUM EAR CUPS The beautifully anodised aluminium cups feature a revolutionary mechanism that allows each cup to rotate independently and balance pressure. BREATHABLE MESH FABRIC A custom-designed mesh textile wraps the ear cushions to provide pillow-like softness while listening COMFORTABLE MEMORY FOAM Crafted with acoustically engineered memory foam, the ear cushions gently create an immersive seal that is the foundation of incredible sound. ON-BOARD AUDIO CONTROLS The Digital Crown lets you precisely control volume, skip between tracks, answer phone calls and activate Siri. UNBEATABLE SOUND QUALITY 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. IMMERSIVE LISTENING 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. 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. DISTORTIONLESS PLAYBACK Modelled on 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. POWERFUL H1 CHIPS 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 interact naturally with your surroundings.
