Available in attractive colours (space grey, silver, sky blue, green, and pink), the AirPods Max promise to provide an "exceptional acoustic performance" for each user. The product comes with a 40-mm Apple-designed dynamic driver for deep bass, accurate mid-range, and crisp, a clean high-frequency extension so that you can hear every note possible. Here are some more highlights of the AirPods Max:
• 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.
• Active Noise Cancellation: 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.
• Transparency Mode: Users can switch to Transparency mode to simultaneously listen to music while hearing the environment around them. Switching between Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency mode can be done with a single press using the noise control button.
• Spatial Audio: 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.
