Some Apple AirPods Max owners report condensation issues

Apple AirPods Max users report a condensation problem, where water droplets form under the removable ear pads near the drivers. The high-end headphones, only recently launched and priced at Rs. 59,900 in India appear to be particularly prone to this condensation problem because of the premium design, particularly the generous use of metal, which is considerably cool to the touch compared to headsets that use a reasonable amount of plastic. While one particular user provided details about the problem along with images, others responded that they were also facing similar problems.

An important report comes from user Donald Filimon who provided details about the condensation problems along with pictures on Twitter and Reddit. The pictures show the room gray color variant AirPods Max with removed ear pads and visible water droplets on the inside near the driver. The user reports that they have used the headphones in non-humid environments (mainly indoors) and the water droplets are causing problems with the ear detection on the headset.

The Twitter and Reddit threads have different responses from users reporting similar issues, suggesting that the problem is not an isolated one. This is particularly worrying because of the high price of the headphones. At the Rs. 59,900AirPods Max are among the most expensive popular options available right now, and issues like these are significant concerns for buyers who paid full price.

According to a report by Cult of the MacThis is likely sweat from the user’s ears. Although sweat condensation in headphones is a fairly common problem due to the good fit above the ear, the main issue here is the AirPods Max’s ability to actually handle those amounts of sweat or moisture. That said, it shouldn’t be too difficult to regularly wipe the moisture off with a soft cloth, but doing so requires it not to get inside the drivers and cause serious damage.
