AirPods Max Specifications And Features

The AirPods Max is the first over-ear headphones from Apple and claimed to deliver high-fidelity audio. The earcups are said to be machined aluminum earcups attached to a unique suspension system that flexes with the stainless-steel headband covered with a breathable knit mesh canopy which enables it to fit a wide range of head sizes.

The earcups are also claimed to have an “acoustically optimized” net that surrounds the magnetically attached cushions. Apple also claims that the combination of materials provides a superior passive seal for an unparallel noise-canceling experience.

It also has optical and position sensors to detect when the pair is removed from ears — or when one earcup is lifted — to pause the sound.
