Apple AirPods Max specs and features
The Apple AirPods Max have aluminum ear cups and are said to be attached to a unique suspension system that flexes with the stainless steel headband covered with a breathable knitted mesh canopy to accommodate a variety of head sizes. The ear cups of the AirPods Max have an “acoustically optimized” mesh that surrounds the magnetically attached cushions. According to Apple, the combination of materials offers a superior passive seal for a better noise canceling experience.
The new headphones come with Apple’s custom 40mm dynamic drivers and the proprietary H1 chip. The AirPods Max have a total of nine microphones, eight of which support the active noise cancellation function to block noise from all directions. It has a one-button transparency mode, much like Apple’s AirPods Pro, Apple’s true wireless stereo earbuds (TWS). The wireless headphones connect via Bluetooth v5.
The AirPods Max feature spatial audio with dynamic head tracking, which essentially uses accelerometer and gyroscope sensors to track head movement and optimize sound in real time. They also have optical sensors and position sensors that detect when the pair is removed from their ears to stop the sound.
Aside from a dedicated noise-canceling button to toggle between ANC and transparency mode, the AirPods Max have a digital crown on top of the right ear cup to play / pause / skip tracks, activate Siri and most importantly, precisely control the volume. With the ANC activated, the wireless headphones should provide up to 20 hours of listening time on a single charge. According to Apple, five minutes of charging provide around an hour and a half of listening time.
