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.
Comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This model is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors. It offers potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.

Apple AirPods Max

Apple AirPods Max
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
6.weight

384.8g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.

Sound quality

The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
3.has a neodymium magnet
Apple AirPods Max
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.

Power

The device's battery life (when in use) as given by the manufacturer. With a longer battery life you have to charge the device less often.
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
4.has a removable battery
Apple AirPods Max
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.

Connectivity

1.Can be used wirelessly
Apple AirPods Max
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
Wi-Fi 6, released in 2019, is based on the IEEE 802.11ax wireless LAN standard. Designed to operate in all frequency bands between 1 and 6 GHz, it offers higher data rates and lower latency compared to previous Wi-Fi technologies.
802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability, and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.
Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors – a, b, and g.

Features

A headset is one headphone or pair with a built-in microphone. Headsets can be used for apps that require communication i.e. Skype, games with voice chat, mobile phones, etc.
These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
There is a control panel on the device body, so you can easily access the volume control or remote without having to interact with a cable or another device it's connected to.
When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
6.Has voice prompts
Apple AirPods Max
With voice prompts, you will automatically receive information via audio messages – for instance, you may find out that the battery is running low, and it's time to recharge the device.

Miscellaneous

1.has a gyroscope
Apple AirPods Max
A gyroscope is a sensor that tracks the orientation of a device, more specifically by measuring the angular rotational velocity. Initially, they were built using a spinning rotor to detect changes in orientation, like twisting or rotation.
