A radically original composition.
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.
The canopy spanning the headband is made from a breathable knit mesh, distributing weight to reduce on-head pressure.
The stainless steel frame is wrapped with a soft-to-the-touch material for a remarkable combination of strength, flexibility, and comfort.
Telescoping arms smoothly extend and stay where you set them, for a consistent fit and seal.
The beautifully anodized aluminum cups feature a revolutionary mechanism that allows each cup to rotate independently and balance pressure.
A custom-designed mesh textile wraps the ear cushions to provide pillow-like softness while listening.
Crafted with acoustically engineered memory foam, the ear cushions gently create an immersive seal that is the foundation of incredible sound.
The Digital Crown lets you precisely control volume, skip between tracks, answer phone calls, and activate Siri.
Anything but monotone.
Sounds like an epiphany.
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.
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, so it's heard clearly - even in windy situations.
Hear every detail
The Apple-designed dynamic driver produces a wide frequency range that uncovers the rich details of every sound - delivering your favorite songs with previously unheard texture and accuracy.
Modeled after those in high-end floor-standing speakers, the driver's dual-neodymium ring magnet motor minimizes total harmonic distortion across the entire audible range. The result is consistently clear playback, even at full volume.
