Last year, Apple released their latest audio item which was the the Apple AirPods Max. These were higher end noise cancelling headphones with some of the Apple special sauce baked in. The biggest hit against them was the price, coming in at a big $549. These would be natural competitors to the $399-priced Bose Noise Cancelling 700 and the $349-priced Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones. So, there certainly was a price disparity.

With the high price came some things like the familiar digital crown from the Apple Watch to allow a real control vs touchpad controls (like the Sony headphones have) as well as easily replaceable earpieces, thanks to magnets, and the high quality Apple build. They also have the H1 chip that allows easily transferability between Apple devices on the same Apple account as well as things like spatial audio for a better, more immersive listening experience.
But, you don’t get a cable with it that allows you to connect to devices like in-air entertainment units (something that comes standard with both Bose and Sony) and you do not get a case that protects the entire headphones.
If the price was keeping you away and you really wanted them, now you can get them during their first sale with a $50 discount.
The Apple AirPods Max come in five colors and four of them are on sale – only red is not.
This is a nice deal, especially if you can take advantage of some of the Amazon discounts going on for using certain points (if you are unfamiliar with those current offers, I will update here shortly with all of them after I post them).
