Apple announced AirPods Max a few days ago, creative wireless headphones that bring the magic of AirPods to an over-ear design with high-fidelity sound. Cupertino, California Adaptive EQ, Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency Mode, and Spatial Audio AirPods Max combine a custom acoustic architecture, H1 chips, and advanced software to power computational audio volume for a groundbreaking listening experience. AirPods Max is available in five beautiful colors, including space gray, silver, sky blue, green, and pink, and are available to order from today, with availability starting Tuesday, December 15.
“AirPods are the most popular headphones in the world, beloved for their effortless setup, incredible sound quality, and iconic design. With AirPods Max, we are bringing that magical AirPods experience to a stunning over-ear design with high-fidelity audio,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “The custom acoustic design, combined with powerful H1 chips, and advanced software enable AirPods Max to use computational audio to wirelessly deliver the ultimate personal listening experience.”
Airpods Max Custom acoustic architecture
Every part of the AirPods Max is carefully designed to provide outstanding acoustic output for each customer, from the canopy to the ear cushions. The breathable knit mesh canopy is made to spread weight and reduce on-head pressure, covering the headband. For a wide range of head shapes and sizes, the stainless steel headband frame offers power, versatility, and comfort. To retain the perfect fit, telescoping headband arms smoothly expand and remain in place.
Airpods Max Listening Experience breakthrough
AirPods Max features a dynamic driver designed by Apple 40 mm that offers rich, deep bass, precise mid-range, and crisp clean high-frequency extension so that you can hear every note. A special dual neodymium ring magnet motor enables AirPods Max to sustain, even at high volume, total harmonic distortion of less than 1 percent across the entire audible range.
Computational audio drives a revolutionary listening experience that includes Adaptive EQ, Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency Mode, and spatial audio using each of the 10 audio cores of the chips, capable of 9 billion operations per second.
Airpods Max Features
- Adaptive EQ: Adaptive EQ is used by AirPods Max to change the sound to the fit and seal of the ear cushions by measuring a user’s sound signal and changing the low and mid-frequencies in real-time, delivering rich audio that captures every detail.
- Active Noise Cancellation: Via Active Noise Cancellation, AirPods Max provides immersive sound so that users can concentrate on what they are listening to. To detect ambient noise, each ear cup features three outward-facing microphones, while one microphone within the ear cup tracks the sound hitting the ear of the listener. Noise cancellation adapts continuously to the headphone fit and movement in real-time using computational audio.
- Transparency mode: Users can turn to Transparency mode with AirPods Max to listen to music simultaneously while listening to the world around them, ensuring that anything, including the user’s own voice, sounds normal while the audio plays perfectly.
- Spatial Audio: the device uses spatial audio with dynamic head tracking to position sounds in a room virtually anywhere, offering an immersive, theatrical experience for 5.1, 7.1, and Dolby Atmos captured material. Spatial audio monitors the motion of a user’s head as well as the device, compares the motion data using the gyroscope and accelerometer in AirPods Max and iPhone or iPad, then remakes the sound field so that it remains anchored to the device, even as the user’s head moves.
The AirPods’ Magic
In providing unparalleled wireless audio, whether a client is listening to music on low volume, making phone calls, watching TV shows and movies, playing games, or engaging with Siri, AirPods Max joins the established AirPods family.
