Apple on December 8,2020 announced AirPods Max, innovative wireless headphones that bring the magic of AirPods to an over-ear design also with high-fidelity sound. AirPods Max combine a custom acoustic design, H1 chips, and advanced software to power computational audio for a breakthrough listening experience with Adaptive EQ, Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency mode, and spatial audio. AirPods Max come in five gorgeous colors, including space gray, silver, sky blue, green, and pink, and are available to order starting today, with availability beginning Tuesday, December 15.

Apple AirPods Max release date

The Apple AirPods Max were announced on December 8 via a press release posted to the Apple newsroom. 

Though they’ll be officially released on December 15, 2020, they’re available to preorder now. 

Release -December 15,2020

According to the official Apple Store, you probably won’t be able to buy AirPods Max directly from Apple on December 15.

In fact, if you hesitated on Apple’s peculiar-looking noise-canceling headphones, it’s unlikely to arrive in 2020. AirPods Max restock in the US will ship in 12 to 14 weeks. Showing us an estimated delivery date of March 5 to March 19. That’s a long wait. In the UK, most AirPods Max colors show a delivery date of January 7. The Sky Blue model is 12 to 14 weeks out, indicating it may be the most popular color option. In Australia, every version of the AirPods Max has been pushed back to 2021 . Except for Pink, which may arrive by December 23, according to the Apple Store estimate.

The AirPods Max are available to buy from other retailers though. Including Best Buy in the US and Currys in the UK. 


The Apple AirPods Max cost $549 / £549 / AU$899, and also are available to preorder now. 

That’s far more expensive than many of the best over-ear headphones on the market. Anyone hoping for a budget-friendly price like the HomePod mini will be disappointed.

Either way, Apple’s over-ear headphones are much more pricey than Apple’s popular true wireless earbuds, with the most expensive of these – the AirPods Pro – coming in at $249 / £249 / AU$399.

Design-Over Ear

Design-wise, the AirPods Max are an interesting blend of classic only-Apple design flourishes and odd incongruities. The over-ear headphone has been completely reimagined. From cushion to canopy, AirPods Max are designed for an uncompromising fit that creates the optimal acoustic seal for many different head shapes — fully immersing you in every sound.

The canopy spanning the headband is made from a breathable knit mesh, distributing weight to reduce on‑head pressure.

The stainless steel frame is wrapped with a soft-to-the-touch material for a remarkable combination of strength, flexibility, and also comfort.

Telescoping arms smoothly extend and stay where you set them, for a consistent fit and seal.

The beautifully anodized aluminum cups feature a revolutionary mechanism that allows each cup to rotate independently and balance pressure.

A custom-designed mesh textile wraps the ear cushions to provide pillow-like softness while listening.

Crafted with acoustically engineered memory foam, the ear cushions gently create an immersive seal that is the foundation of incredible sound.

The Digital Crown lets you precisely control volume, skip between tracks, answer phone calls, and also activate Siri.

There’s also a noise control button that allows you to switch between active noise cancellation and Transparency mode, while the bottom of the earcup houses an Apple Lightning port for charging. A charging cable is included with the headphones, unlike the latest iPhone.

Active Noise Cancellation with Transparency Mode

To cancel unwanted external sound, AirPods Max use a total of six outward-facing microphones to detect noise in your environment, and two inward-facing microphones to measure what you’re hearing. Beamforming microphones help isolate your voice on phone calls, so it’s heard clearly — even in windy situations.

Industry‑leading Active Noise Cancellation counters external sound with equal anti‑noise, allowing you to immerse yourself in what you’re listening to.

Press the noise control button to switch to Transparency mode, which lets outside sound in so you can interact naturally with your surroundings.

This noise control button allows you to switch between active noise cancellation and Transparency mode, while the bottom of the earcup houses an Apple Lightning port for charging.


The new AirPods Max come in five colors: silver, space gray, sky blue, pink, and green.

Dynamic Listening Experience with Dynamic Drivers

AirPods Max feature a 40-mm Apple-designed dynamic driver .It provides rich, deep bass, accurate mid-ranges, and crisp, clean high-frequency extension .So every note can be heard. A unique dual neodymium ring magnet motor allows AirPods Max to maintain total harmonic distortion of less than 1 percent across the entire audible range, even at maximum volume. Equipped with an Apple-designed H1 chip in each ear cup, a custom acoustic design, and advanced software, AirPods Max use computational audio to deliver the highest quality listening experience possible. Utilizing each of the chips’ 10 audio cores — capable of 9 billion operations per second. Computational audio powers a breakthrough listening experience that includes Adaptive EQ, Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency mode, and spatial audio.

Audio Enhancements:

  • Adaptive EQ: AirPods Max use Adaptive EQ to adjust the sound to the fit and seal of the ear cushions by measuring the sound signal delivered to a user. And adjusting the low and mid-frequencies in real time — bringing rich audio that captures every detail.
  • Active Noise Cancellation: AirPods Max deliver immersive sound through Active Noise Cancellation so users can focus on what they are listening to. Each ear cup features three outward-facing microphones to detect environmental noise. While one microphone inside the ear cup monitors the sound reaching the listener’s ear. Using computational audio, noise cancellation continuously adapts to the headphone fit and movement in real time.
  • Transparency Mode: With AirPods Max, users can switch to Transparency mode to simultaneously listen to music while hearing the environment around them .Ensuring everything, including a user’s own voice, sounds natural while audio plays perfectly. Switching between Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency mode can be done with a single press using the noise control button. 
  • Spatial Audio: AirPods Max use spatial audio with dynamic head tracking to place sounds virtually anywhere in a space. Delivering an immersive, theaterlike experience for content recorded in 5.1, 7.1, and Dolby Atmos. Using the gyroscope and accelerometer in AirPods Max and iPhone or iPad, spatial audio tracks the motion of a user’s head as well as the device, compares the motion data. Then remaps the sound field so it stays anchored to the device, even as the user’s head moves.

Audio Quality

AirPods Max combine high-fidelity audio with industry-leading Active Noise Cancellation to deliver an unparalleled listening experience. 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.


Modeled after those in high-end floor-standing speakers, the driver’s dual-neodymium ring magnet motor minimizes total harmonic distortion across the entire audible range. The result is consistently clear playback, even at full volume.

Airpods Max Designed H1 chip in each cup

With a powerful Apple‑designed H1 chip in each cup, the custom acoustic design, and advanced software, AirPods Max use computational audio to create a breakthrough listening experience.
