AirPods Max


The AirPods Max are the newest member of the AirPods family. They have many features and advantages that other AirPods do not. They have a longer battery life, for example, which means you can use them for longer periods of time without having to recharge them.

They also include a charging case that can be used to recharge your AirPods up to four times. This is especially useful if you’re on the go and don’t have access to an electrical outlet. Finally, they have improved audio quality, making listening to music or watching videos even more enjoyable.

High-fidelity audio

Active Noise Cancellation
with Transparency mode.

Stunning design with an
exceptional fit.

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.

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.

Five colors.
Anything but

Immersive listening
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.

Distortionless playback

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.

With a powerful Apple‑designed H1 chip in each cup, our custom acoustic
design, and advanced software, AirPods Max use computational audio to
create a breakthrough listening experience. By tapping into each chip’s 10
audio cores, computational audio helps block outside noise, adapts audio to
the fit and seal of your ear cushions, and makes movie scenes sound like
they’re happening all around you.

Industry‑leading Active Noise Cancellation counters  
external sound with equal anti‑noise, allowing you to
immerse yourself in what you’re listening to.

Press the noise control button to switch to
 Transparency Mode, which lets outside sound in so
you can interact naturally with your surroundings.

Spatial audio with dynamic head tracking gives
you a theater‑like experience for movies and shows, with sound that surrounds you. Using
built-in gyroscopes and accelerometers,
AirPods Max and your iPhone, iPad, Mac, or
Apple TV track the subtle motion of your head,
anchoring sounds to your device.

And with Apple Music, spatial audio with
dynamic head tracking places sound all around
you to create a three-dimensional listening

One-tap setup

AirPods Max connect
immediately to your iPhone
or iPad. To pair, simply place
AirPods Max near your
device and tap Connect on
your screen.

Seamless switching

Seamlessly move between
your iPhone, iPad, Mac, and
Apple TV. If you’re playing
music on your Mac and take
a call on your iPhone,
AirPods Max will
automatically switch over.

Audio Sharing

Easily share an audio stream
between two sets of AirPods
on your iPhone, iPad, iPod
touch, or Apple TV. Bring
any AirPods near the device
you’re listening to and
connect in a tap.

More magic to play with.

On-head detection

AirPods Max pause audio
when you take them off, and
resume playback when you
put them back on. So you
never miss a beat.

Announce Notifications

With Announce
Notifications, Siri can
automatically read
important notifications from
Messages, Phone, Calendar,
Reminders, and more as
they arrive. You can even
tell Siri to respond — no
hands required.

Always-on Siri

Get directions, check the
weather, schedule a
meeting, and more with a
simple “Hey Siri.” With an
expansive set of commands,
your favorite personal
assistant is more helpful
than ever.

A case with staying power

When stored in their soft, slim Smart Case, AirPods Max enter an
ultra‑low‑power state that preserves charge.

A battery that keeps
stayin’ alive

hours of listening, movie watching, or talk time — with
