The Apple AirPods Max over-ear headphones have been launched in India. These were earlier rumored to be called AirPods Studio. The launch of the new over-ear, wireless headphones from Apple was anticipated following multiple reports hinting that Apple could launch a new piece of hardware today, December 8. The Apple AirPods Max has been announced globally and will begin shipping around the world and in India on December 15. They have already been listed on the Apple Store Online India in five color options: Pink, Green, Blue, Space Grey, and Silver.
Apple AirPods Max Price in India and availability
The Apple AirPods Max has been listed on the online Apple store India for Rs. 59,900. They will be available for purchase through the store and other Apple resellers starting December 15. The pair will be shipped with a special “smart” case designed for it, which has a flap open cover, along with a Lightning to USB-C cable for charging.
Globally, the AirPods Max Pro Over-Ear headphones are priced at $549, which works out to just under Rs. 40,500. This, of course, does not account for customs and logistics, which is why a direct conversion doesn’t make sense.
The AirPods Max is an over-ear wireless headphone that features a 40mm Apple-designed dynamic driver and is equipped with an Apple-designed H1 chip. It sports a custom acoustic design with the breathable knit mesh canopy spanning the headband and the stainless steel headband frame providing strength, flexibility, and comfort for a wide variety of head shapes and sizes. The ear cushion uses memory foam to create an effective seal and you can control the volume, playback, answer or end calls, activate Siri with the Digital Crown on the headphone.
Further, the AirPods Max uses Adaptive EQ, features Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency Mode, and Spatial Audio. The Transparency mode allows you to simultaneously listen to music while hearing the environment around them. The Spatial Audio with dynamic head tracking delivers a theatre-like experience for content recorded in 5.1, 7.1, and Dolby Atmos.
Similar to the AirPods and AirPods Pro, the new AirPods Max features a one-tap setup followed by automatic pairing and it automatically detects when they are on a user’s head using the optical and position sensors. When it comes to battery life, the AirPods Max claims to deliver up to 20-hours of battery life with high-fidelity audio, talk time, or movie playback with Active Noise Cancellation and spatial audio enabled. Also, it comes with a Smart Case that puts this headphone in an ultra-low-power state. It has fast charging that offers 1.5 hours of listening time with 5 minutes of charge
