AirPods Max Specifications and Features

Firstly, it claims to deliver high-fidelity audio. The machined aluminum earcups are said to be attached to a unique suspension system that flexes with the stainless-steel headband, which is covered with a breathable knit mesh canopy, to fit a wide range of head sizes. Additionally, the earcups have an “acoustically optimized” net that surrounds the magnetically attached cushions. 

AirPods Max is fitted with custom 40mm dynamic drivers from Apple and its proprietary H1 chip. It has a total of nine microphones, eight of which also assist the Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) function to block noise from all directions.

The headphones have spatial audio with dynamic head tracking. It essentially uses accelerometer and gyroscope sensors to track head movement and optimize sound in real-time. They have optical and position sensors to detect when the pair is removed from ears — or when one earcup is lifted — to pause the sound. And also adaptive EQ to optimize sound for different genres of music.

They also have a dedicated noise control button to switch between ANC and Transparency mode. Additionally, the AirPods Max has a digital crown on top of the right earcup to play/ pause/ skip tracks, activate Siri, and, most importantly, control volume with precision. It claims to deliver up to 20 hours of listening time on a single charge with ANC enabled. According to Apple, five minutes of charge time provides around an hour and a half of listening time.
