What you need to know
- Some lucky people are starting to receive their AirPods Max orders.
Today is AirPods Max (opens in new tab) launch day and while stocks are more limited than a really limited thing, those who were able to order quickly are receiving their headphones today. And thanks to the magic of timezones, some are already bopping away to their favorite playlists right now.
Music lovers around the world have taken to social media to share photos of their new headphones while others have ventured into their local Apple Stores to take a look at the new hotness.
Leaker @l0vetodtream was one of the lucky ones, grabbing a pair of Space Gray AirPods Max
Early reports are pretty positive, too. Reviews still aren't live, but that isn't stopping buyers from sharing their thoughts.

Also, am I the only one that's rather taken by the Pink color?
同事的 AirPods Max 到了，第一时间开摸：颜值爆表，佩戴贴合舒适，不压头发，穿透模式清晰自然，降噪模式比Pro 好非常多，不堵耳朵，严重种草（走开，我不需要！我不需要！我不需要！） pic.twitter.com/n2xc1x88Wr同事的 AirPods Max 到了，第一时间开摸：颜值爆表，佩戴贴合舒适，不压头发，穿透模式清晰自然，降噪模式比Pro 好非常多，不堵耳朵，严重种草（走开，我不需要！我不需要！我不需要！） pic.twitter.com/n2xc1x88Wr— 自力hzlzh (@hzlzh) December 15, 2020December 15, 2020
That Blue and Green though...
Another day at the Apple Store to see the AirPods Max. You could ask to buy a pair, but it’s online order only, and won’t be available until March pic.twitter.com/EnrpexN5nMAnother day at the Apple Store to see the AirPods Max.

Silver's pretty hot as well!
Still, it seems that Space Gray are the most popular right now.
Were you able to bag yourself a pair of AirPods Max or, like me, are you facing a three-month wait?
