Even getting ahold of a set of AirPods Max has been a real struggle since their release, never mind snagging a discount on a pair, though supply seems to be catching up with demand a little more these days.

Despite regular AirPods deals being quite common, AirPods Max deals have been less forthcoming given how demand so quickly outstripped supply when they first launched with retailers scrambling to keep up. The supply and demand equation seems to have mostly settled now so we're keeping tabs on all of the best offers below.


AirPods Max | $60 off

AirPods Max have been pretty hard to find since their release, though supply seems to be catching up with demand now and the discounts have started. Order at Amazon soon and you can save as much as $59. This is just a dollar shy of their biggest discount to date.

AirPods Max combine high-fidelity audio with Active Noise Cancellation. Each part of their custom-built driver works to produce sound with ultra-low distortion across the audible range. From deep, rich bass to accurate mids and crisp, clean highs, you'll hear every note with a new sense of clarity.

They feature an Apple H1 headphone chip in each ear cup for instant pairing and device switching, "Hey, Siri" support, and better power management. The headphones also include a bunch of sensors to detect when you're wearing them, the positioning of your head, and any movement for spatial audio, and they also detect when they go into the included case so they can power down.

With a premium audio experience comes a steep price tag, but the below list will be updated with any discounts as they crop up.

Since AirPods Max are so new and supply has been so scarce since their release, the deals haven't been plentiful. However, now that the premium cans have become more readily available in recent weeks, we have seen some retailers start to incentivize buyers once again.

Best Buy has a great offer whereby you get six months of Apple Music for free with the purchase — the perfect pairing with the new headphones. The best direct discount has been at Amazon at $489 which is $60 off and, as always, Target buyers can save 5% with a RedCard which works out at close to $30 off AirPods Max.

Refurbished deals are also now starting to appear which offer another way to save.
