What you need to know
- Some AirPods Max owners are experiencing condensation buildup in the earcup.
- Other users say that the issue is not unique to Apple's new over ear headphones.
One AirPods Max owner says that, after "prolonged usage" of the headphones, they would find condensation inside the ear cup underneath the ear cushions.
It appears that the rate of condensation growth is different for all users.
One user responded to the comments saying that the AirPods Max aren't unique to this issue.
Some users were worried enough about the issue that they have returned the headphones, whereas others have purchased AppleCare+ to protect them in case it was to cause any damage. Unlike AirPods Pro, AirPods Max are not water-resistant so owners are worried about condensation getting to the electronics underneath the earcup.
