What you need to know
- Apple's AirPods Max are immensely difficult to get hold of.
- There are some available from Amazon for shipping in January right now, however.
Apple's AirPods Max are notoriously difficult to get hold of, but right now you can snag at least one color with four week shipping on Amazon.
The silver AirPods Max (opens in new tab) are available from Amazon for the RRP of $549.00 and are marked as in stock from January 21. Depending on where you live in the US, you could get them as soon as January 27, or at the very least by the end of the month. This is a whole lot faster than Apple, where shipping times for all colors are currently backed up to March.
Worth the wait
You can purchase a pair of AirPods Max in five different colors, space gray, silver, green, sky blue, and pink.
Apple released the AirPods Max via a press release in December. From Apple:
