Apple makes some of the best headphones out there. The AirPods Max are the company's top-of-the-line option with arguably the best noise cancelation on the market. And today only, you can save $99 on a set at both Amazon and Best Buy, bringing the price to just $450. The offer is only available today at Best Buy, and we expect Amazon will match that timing, so we recommend making your purchase sooner rather than later.
According to CNET's David Carnoy, Apple's AirPods Max are the best high-end wireless over-ear headphones you can get. They have an Apple H1 headphone chip in each ear cup and offer top-notch sound quality. They have a premium build quality, comfortable fit (despite being heavy) and Apple's neat virtual surround-sound spatial audio feature for both music and video watching.
You'll get up to 20 hours of playback per charge, which means you can enjoy your favorite content all day long without interruption. Along with impressive active noise cancellation, which allows you to tune out the world and immerse yourself in your music, these headphones also offer a transparency mode for when you want to hear everything around you.
The AirPods Max can connect to any Bluetooth device, but it's worth noting that some features, including spatial audio, will only work when paired with Apple devices.
