Save $70 On Apple's Premium AirPods Max Headphones At Amazon Today

If you're invested in the Apple ecosystem then the AirPods Max at a discounted $480 will be a great new addition.


Just because Amazon Prime Day has come and gone doesn't mean there aren't still great deals to be found at the retailer, especially if you're in the market for a great pair of headphones. The Apple AirPods Max are the company's first premium, over-ear set of cans, with a distinct design and suitably high price. But you can grab a pair today for $70 off, with Amazon dropping the price to $480.

The Apple AirPods Max definitely look like an Apple product, starting with the knit-mesh headband to the memory foam earcups that sit next to the metal exterior that covers the headphone drivers. There's a familiar dial on one earcup for volume control as well as a single button for numerous uses (pause and play, summoning Siri, and more), which might please you if you're not a fan of the touch controls found on competitors like the Sony WH-1000MX4.

What's important though is the sound quality, and that's where the AirPods Max excel. That's especially true if you're pairing them with an Apple device, allowing you to make use of spatial audio across a range of music streaming services, while also having a painless pairing process that makes getting to listening easier than ever. With active noise canceling and transparency modes you can tune exactly what to let into your headphones depending on your environment, with the AirPods Max building on the already excellent noise canceling found in the regular AirPods Pro.

The AirPods Max come with a carrying case (which is far more divisive than the headphones themselves) and a USB-C to Lightning cable for charging. Apple comes up against stiff competition at this price range, with both Sony and Bose offering compelling options for less. But if you're already invested in Apple's ecosystem and have been patient, this seems like a great time to finally pick these up.
