The AirPods Max are extremely impressive headphones, but they come at the steep price of $550. B&H Photo has reduced the price this 4th of July, where you'll find up to $70 off the AirPods Max.
Prices around other retailers on AirPods are known to fluctuate, but discounts like this a usually rare. As with any other discount on an Apple product that comes in more than one or two colors, it's well worth shopping around to see if the other colors are cheaper than your first choice - you may find a great deal!
AirPods Max up to $70 off
With each earcup milled out of Aluminum, the AirPods max scream quality from the moment you put them on your head. Press play and you'll be treated to some great sound quality, while the noise-canceling will block out the outside world. The wireless, Bluetooth connection makes them more convenient, and the way they connect to an iPhone is magical.
They're not audiophile-grade good - there's an overt warmth to their sound signature that, while pleasing to many, will put off the most audio-obsessed, and the Bluetooth means they don't support the top level of Apple Lossless in Apple Music. That's not even mentioning the diabolical case that Apple includes in the box - rather than a protective hard case for metal headphones that cost over $500, it's a microfibre-lined soft slipcase with magnets in the floppy lid. We'd recommend you look at the best Airpods Max cases instead.
This is not the lowest price that the AirPods Max have been - they have, in the past, slipped all the way down to $429. That's not to say that today's deal isn't worth taking very seriously - it could be a long time before a deal like this comes around again.
