Topics

A side note our discussion on the AirPods Pro Max from last week: here is more info and a comparison to high end headphones from a MacVoices viewer describing comparisons to high end.

Who are the AirPods Max aimed towards? It's the same market or type of consumer that these wireless headphones are aimed at; Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless Copper ($699) DALI‌ IO-6 ($499) Sennheiser RS 195 ($449) Master & Dynamic MW65 ($499) Focal Listen Bluetooth Wireless ($490) With the exception of noise cancellation, what the AirPods Pro Max brings to the table that these other brands don't is the following; 

  • Spatial Audio
  • Atmos, 7.1 support
  • Active Noise Cancellation
  • Transparency mode
  • Adaptive EQ using mics and sensors 
  • Ear and neck detection
  • Multiple SoC for extended battery life and computation audio processing
  • Apple grade pairing
  • lagless wireless audio, auto switching
  • the ability to add features, over time, via software updates 
  • So if you're someone that appreciates high-end audio AND tight-integration with the Apple ecosystem, there's a good chance these headphones are for you. As well as there's the fashion angle.
