There are few over-ear headphones more luxurious than the Apple AirPods Max — and if you hurry today, you can make a giant saving of $100 over at Amazon for them.

Apple's premium cans have been around for a little while now, which means you'll see them hit deal prices well below the usual $549 asking price for them relatively regularly. But this is still a hefty saving to be had ahead of Amazon's full Apple Prime Day deals reveal, when the retailer's big annual sale kicks off on July 11th and 12th.

This is a superb saving on all color variants of the Apple AirPods Max. Apple's over-ear headphones take advantage of the company's premium design principles to deliver exemplary spatial audio, noise cancellation and a solid, attractive design.

With best-in-class noise cancellation, the AirPods Max really come into their own in my opinion when watching films. Pair them with an Apple TV and switch on their Spatial Audio function, and you'd be forgiven for thinking you're listening to discrete surround sound speakers instead. At this point in the AirPods Max lifecycle, you may be tempted to wait for an AirPods Max 2 successor — but so far Apple's shown no sign of updating the model, and the current offering still represents one of the best personal audio experiences money can buy today.

Not on the lookout for AirPods Max, but want in-ear AirPods instead? Be sure to check out our ever-updating AirPods Prime Day deals page for all the latest offers on Apple's iconic noise-makers.

As always, at this time of year, we're expecting Prime Day pretty soon – so deals like this might become more frequent!
