9 / 10

Ce casque posède la meilleure isolation sonore du marché et le mode transparence est inégalé. En comparaison avec tous les autres casques qu j’ai testés, la qualité sonore est incroyable sans distortions, tout est bien ajusté, ni les mediums ni les graves et les aigues ne se prennent le dessus. La qualité de fabrication est folle aussi on entend aucun craquage du chassis.

Pros

  • Qualité sonore
  • Qualité de fabrication
  • Fonctionalités
  • Comfort

Cons

  • Prix
  • Adaptateur Jack 3.5mm non fournis

Design

1.has stereo speakers
Apple AirPods Max
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has an over-the-ear form

5.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Apple AirPods Max
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
