Apple announced on Tuesday the launch of their new headphones called Airpods Max which features "incredible high-fidelity audio, Adaptive EQ, Active Noise Cancellation, and spatial audio". The press release from Apple stated "AirPods Max combines a custom acoustic design, H1 chips, and advanced software to power computational audio for a breakthrough listening experience with Adaptive EQ, Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency Mode, and spatial audio. AirPods Max comes in five gorgeous colors, including space gray, silver, sky blue, green, and pink, and are available to order starting today, with availability beginning Tuesday, December 15." The over-ear-styled product is priced at $549 a piece and it is this that has left users shocked. 

One fan, in a cheeky comment, shared, "For $550 I better be able to hear Michael Jackson play a zoom concert from heaven." Another wrote, "There isn’t enough noise in the world to cancel for $550." There was also one user who wrote, "For $550 those AirPods max better give me echolocation like bailey from finding dory."




Many also commented on how the brand was releasing a product so expensive during a pandemic. One of them wrote, "So...Apple releasing some over-ear headphones for $550?! IN A PANDEMIC?!" Another wrote, "that’s really half the price of my phone :/ for 550 these better lick my ears when Solange come on."



There have also been references to how the company that owns Beats has come up with a design and would undermine its own product. One user wrote, "They literally own beats and this is design they come up with. Been excited for Apple headphones since high school and this is what I get for $550. Same price as the ps5. no." Another shared, "Airpods max? Apple had a great thing going with the AirPods. Those single-handedly crushed Beats sales. Now they’re making over the ear headphones? for $550? Someone brain farted."



One Twitter user also shared, "For $550 the Airpods Max better cancel noise so hard that sound itself has to tweet out a two-page apology screenshot from the notes app." Another said, "For $550 these motherf**kers better let me hear someone on set chewing gum in the background of a song."



The press release also states, "AirPods Max feature a 40-mm Apple-designed dynamic driver that provides rich, deep bass, accurate mid-ranges, and crisp, clean high-frequency extension so every note can be heard." It also adds, "Equipped with an Apple-designed H1 chip in each ear cup, a custom acoustic design, and advanced software, AirPods Max use computational audio to deliver the highest-quality listening experience possible." Referring to this, one user wrote, "-Marketing jargon -Industry-standard driver (will be interesting to see how apple have designed the sound profile) -More marketing jargon -Not too sure on this one -Nothing special -H1 chip sound cool For £550 they need to be audiophile levels of good."


While customers can order the product as of today, they will be shipped beginning December 15 in 25 countries.
