Apple’s AirPods Max may finally be within reach if you’ve been waiting for them to hit a price cap. Woot is selling the pink headphones for only $400 for Amazon Prime members, or $149 below the official sticker. That’s the lowest price we’ve seen, and even $460 for gray (the only other color option on Woot at the moment) is a solid deal. Just remember that Woot’s return policy is not the same as Amazon.
AirPods Max represent considerably better value at this price point. They pack excellent, balanced sound, quality active noise cancellation and intelligent controls. In Apple’s ecosystem, you’ll also get perks like simple pairing and spatial audio. Add solid battery life and you’ll probably be happy.
The warnings are familiar. Some of the advantages disappear if you use Android or Windows, and you might get better with more universal alternatives like Sony’s WH-1000XM4. Apple’s included carrying case also offers little protection – you’ll really want to buy a third-party shell if you routinely put the AirPods Max in your bag. If these aren’t obstacles, however, you’ll have little reason to complain.
