Apple’s AirPods Max you could finally be at your fingertips if you waited to reach the price threshold. Woot sells headphones over the ears in pink only $ 400 Amazon Prime members, or a steep $ 149 below their official sticker. That’s the lowest price we’ve seen so far, and even $ 460 for gray (currently the only other color option on Woot) is a solid offering. Just remember the Woots return policy not the same as Amazon.
AirPods Max represent significantly better value at this price. They have superbly balanced sound, quality active noise cancellation and smart controls. In the Apple ecosystem, you’ll also get benefits like easy pairing and surround sound. Insert a solid battery life and you will probably be happy.
The warnings are known. Some of the benefits disappear if you use Android or Windows, and you may be better off with more universal alternatives like Sony WH-1000XM4. Apple’s included case also offers little protection – you’ll really want to buy a third-party shell if you routinely put AirPods Max in your bag. However, if these are not obstacles, you will have several reasons to appeal.
