Apple surprised many by releasing a product in December, something they rarely do. The new AirPods Max are an over-the-ear addition to the AirPods line. Priced at $549, and available on December 15, these are meant to be top-of-the-line headphones for audiophiles.
The headphones feature a Digital Crown like the Apple Watch for controlling volume, skipping tracks, answering calls and activating Siri. There is an array of 9 microphones for noise cancelling and voice input. They charge through a lightning connector which can also serve as audio input with the right cable. They also come in a variety of colors.
