  • Pricey but Prime Performance
    Verified BuyerReviewed by shesL8 - January 29, 2022

    As with any Apple accessory, you will pay a lot of money (that might probably be the one negative I can come up with, but thankfully, I was able to avail myself of Best Buy’s awesome promotional financing!!) but for an item that is generally well made with high performance. I happen to love Apple products so I purchased the AirPods Max as a Christmas gift to myself. They have so far lived up to my expectations. The high fidelity audio is no lie, and I love the ability to either completely block out ambient sound around me (all that pesky outside noise!), or allow for transparency so that I can be aware of what’s going on around me (as when my grandchildren are with me). They are comfortable (I had no need to adjust the arms and the ear cushions were as Apple states, “pillow-like”) and fit well over my ears, and sound can be adjusted via the digital crown or whatever device you are connected to. Overall, a great purchase. And as always, Best Buy delivers quickly and makes sure your item arrives safely.

  • Max to the music
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Guava - November 15, 2021

    I really appreciate these headphones. Of course price pint is a factor for anyone buying this. However, the build and sound quality is amazing. I wish apple made a better secure case. However, I used these headphones mostly everyday. The features are top tier! I’m hoping they will update to update the firmware and Apple Music haha.

  • Very, very satisfied… tried 3 other brands first!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by CoachK - August 23, 2021

    Best headset purchase thus far. I tried the Sony’s, the Bose, and the Beats… none of them compared and could stand up to the AirPods headphones! Best noise cancellation while driving WITH the windows rolled down AND best sound and hearing quality for me hearing my caller and my caller hearing me, while driving on the freeway with my windows rolled down. Very, very satisfied. Best earphone cage for my tiny ears… cups nicely… does make my ears sweat a little though… weird… but quality is excellent and headphones and comfortable. I did order a separate case to keep both the smart case and headphones in… to keep my purchase safe… so that would be my advice to new purchasers. Order a case for the case.

  • Once you get over the price... 5 stars all the way
    Verified BuyerReviewed by BUYER - January 23, 2021

    The most noticeable thing (besides the price tag), is the build quality. After taking off my Sony XM4s and putting these on, the build quality is excellent. They feel premium and they are comfortable (once you find the right spot on your head). The lack of an included cable was only frustrating for me because I use a Windows desktop for work and wanted to plug them in. Easy to just buy the cable. For anyone looking for true wireless, the lack of a cable is irrelevant. Sound quality is on par with Sony’s. I’m not an audiophile, but for me there’s a noticeable difference in the mids. Sounds less “muddy.” The Digital Crown is perfect, wasn’t sure what to expect but it’s easy and convenient, don’t have to hope you’re touching invisible touch buttons. I would highly recommend.

  • Definitely true sounding Headphones
    Verified BuyerReviewed by JWorldPro - April 11, 2021

    The sound was not what I expected,I guess because I use different types of headphones for studio recording and production.But for some strange reason they’re helping me with my mixing because I’m able to connect with my Mac Pro 2013 Model and I can get an idea how my mix will sound with stereo headphones ,based on the fact that I’m able to hear exactly what I’m hearing in my DAW (Reasons). The AirPod Max gives you a true flat response without adding too much bass frequencies so that your able to mix and add more bass if it’s needed. On certain reviews I’ve heard they have a high end sound but what I heard was more of a true flat sound. As for the design I kinda of like them but after an hour or so they can get uncomfortable. I purchased an open box so the price was ok for me .
