4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Comfort & Sound Quality
By Garrison on December 15, 2020
For clarification: I purchased these on Apple.com. I am just posting my review here.

When you take these headphones out of the box you immediately notice the weight. Seeing as they are made of mostly metal, besides the replaceable ear cups and headband, this is not too surprising. The metal gives these headphones a very premium feel. The removable ear cups are very soft and comfortable and also easily replaceable (connected via magnets).

The comfort of these headphones rivals most of the other headphones that I own or have owned. I have been comparing these to my Pioneer DJ HDJ-X10s and my Sennheiser PXC 550-IIs. The pioneer headphones are made for long listening sessions and DJ sets and the new Apple headphones tend to be more comfortable than those. When I initially got them I had them on for over 5 hours without any discomfort. Also, a common problem with some over ear headphones is that your ear my start to get hot or sweat over time. That has not been a problem with these headphones. The ear cups are not made out of a non-breathable leather which I am assuming is the reason why my ears do not heat up or sweat over time. The mesh at the top of the headband aids in the comfort. The other thing that makes these comfortable is the various adjustment points. From the telescoping arms to the ball point hinges, you can get an almost perfect fit for your head shape.

Now let's talk about the sound quality. I will fist start off by stating that the noise cancelation, compared to the PXC 550-II is significantly better. It does not completely cancel out all noise however, it does a better job. I think. this is due to the metal design and the mass amount of microphones that they have located in various location on the headphones. When you use the transparency mode these microphones really shine! When this mode is active, and no music is playing, I can clearly hear myself as if I did not have the headphones on at all! Very impressive hardware and software magic from Apple. When actually playing music, in my opinion, the quality rivals a large selection of over ear headphones expect the high end audiophile range. The lows are not muddy and the mids and highs come through very crisp. The clarity is most likely due to the fact that the headphone boasts a 40mm driver which is large enough to reproduce a wide range of frequencies at high volumes without distortion or clipping.

I am a big fan of the tactile buttons and Digital Crown that they have on the headphones for control. This control interface is simple and easy to learn and use daily. The noise cancelation button allows you to cycle between the various noise cancelation modes and in the software you can choose which of the three modes it cycles between (see image). Te Digital Crown is exactly like what you will find on the Apple Watch, only bigger. Scrolling on the watch allows for volume control, and clicking allows for play/pause.

Using these headphones with Apple devices is pretty much as expected, seamless. I will say that you will need to ensure that you devices are updated to the latest operating system in order to fully enjoy all of the features.

Battery life so far is very good! The smart case helps maintain battery life when not in use. From regular use I can go about three days before I need to charge them again. Now that is not travel days. If you travel a lot you may have to charge them more often. Everyones use case is different.

Let me talk about the things that I don't like about these headphones. FYI these may be just personal gripes and might not bother you nor do they take away from the function of the headphones. The first issue that I have is that Apple is still trying to hold onto the lighting charging port. I really wish the would have put a USB C charging port on these headphones bringing them into the rapidly forming universal charging world that is here. The second gripe I have is with the case. If you look at the images I provided you can see how there are gaps in the case. This bothers me slightly because if I were to put these in my backpack on my daily commute there is a chance that something could slip in and scratch the ear cups. Now, I will see if this happens over time but it was not something that I had to deal with with my PXC 550-II because the case for those was completely covering of the headphones.

I will add to this review overtime as use these headphones more...

5.0 out of 5 stars Increíbles!!!!!
Reviewed in Mexico on February 17, 2021
Son los mejores audífonos que he probado. Valen cada peso que cuestan. Se que son más caros que cualquiera de la competencia directa, pero lo valen. Aquí va mi reseña:

PROS
- Cancelación de Ruido increíble. Es brutal el nivel de cancelación de ruido que tienen. Vengo de probar los Beats Solo Pro, los AirPods Pro y los Bose 700, y por mucho la cancelación de ruido es superior en los AirPods Max. No se escucha prácticamente nada, si se pone algo de música, es nulo el sonido que ingresa de fuera.
- Modo transparencia. Es el mejor que he probado. Pareciera que no tienes audífonos por la claridad del sonido que ingresa. Además se puede escuchar música estando atento a los sonidos externos.
- Comodidad. Son más pesados que cualquiera de la competencia, cuando los cargas en tu mano se sienten pesados, sin embargo, en tu cabeza no se sienten nada pesados. Son MUY MUY cómodos. Los he usado por varias horas escuchando música y me he olvidado que los tengo puestos de lo cómodos que se sienten.
- Integración con el ecosistema Apple. Parece "magia". Nomás sacarlos de la caja ya el iPhone los reconoció y con un solo click ya estaban conectados. A partir de ahí, solo sacarlos del estuche y colocarmelos ya estaban conectados.
- Calidad de audio. Increíble. No soy experto en el tema, pero de los audífonos que he probado, son los de mejor calidad de audio.
- EL AUDIO ESPACIAL. Es alucinante e increíble. De momento funciona solo con AppleTV+ y Disney+, aunque próximamente se irán incorporando más servicios como Netflix, etc. Te da una experiencia de audio totalmente inmersivo, como sonido surround, o audio 3d. En las películas de Disney plus se nota muchísimo, parece que el audio viene del dispositivo y te sientes dentro de la película. En ningunos otros audífonos había probado una experiencia similar en viendo una película (solo en los AirPods Pro).

CONTRAS
- El precio evidentemente
- El estuche protector (La smart case). El defecto que tiene es que me parece que no protege bien los audífonos, siente que se pueden golpear o rayar fácilmente aún en esa funda protectora. Además de que, a mi gusto personal, está fea.

De ahí en más son perfectos. Aún con el precio elevado los recomiendo ampliamente. Son los mejores audífonos que he tenido y la experiencia es totalmente increíble. 100% recomendados

5.0 out of 5 stars #1 Wireless Headphones - Best Sound, Excellent Build Quality & Comfort - Full Detailed Review
Reviewed in Canada on February 25, 2021
I took a chance and purchased the Air Pods Max because I’m a big fan of noise cancelling headphones and already own the Sony XM4 and the Bose QC35.

Note: I used to own the Bose 700 but returned them because the head band was so tight it gave me headaches and I couldn’t wear it for more than 20-30 minutes.

Here is my experience with each.

Best Noise Cancelling:

Air Pods Max

Sony XM4

Bose QC35

I use all 3 headphones with televisions in the background, small children and outdoors. The Air Pods Max is very close to the XM4, I would rate it as a 10% difference – it’s almost tied. The QC35 on the other hand, I can hear faint television/small children in the background, even at high volume.

Long Term Comfort:

Bose QC35

Air Pods Max

Sony XM4

Nothing will ever beat the QC35’s. I can wear them all day and take video and phone calls however, it does give me a slight disorientation effect and minor vertigo, similar to diving or moving to an elevated height (driving up a mountain for example).

The Air Pods Max are comfortable, and the ear cups surround my large ears just like the QC35 however, there the clamp is noticeable – this may go away after some time; the clamp causes minor discomfort with glasses; I removed my glasses for the purpose of this short review and the discomfort has faded, even after 60 minutes of listening – it does clamp more than the QC35 and XM4s.

Something to keep in mind is the XM4 earpads are not thick enough and my ear brushes against the speaker area; this also makes my ears get hot after 30 minutes and I eventually have to take a short break – this does not happen with the Air Pods Max – there is lots of room for my ears and the cushions are thick enough that my ears do not touch the speaker area.

Microphone:

Air Pods Max

Bose QC35

Sony XM4

I completed several zoom video/audio calls, Facetime and regular calls. I asked my friends/family to compare my voice quality on each headset and every time, the Air Pods Max was the winner. Bose QC35 is still great in this department however – I was using them as my primary driver for calls prior to getting the Air Pods Max.

The Sony XM4’s are below average; people cannot hear me clearly. In-fact, I stopped using them entirely for business calls because colleagues would make remarks about my microphone. They are ‘okay’ for personal calls, but not desirable for me at least.

Synchronization:

Air Pods Max

Bose QC 35

Sony XM4

I place the Air Pods on my head and it immediately connects to my phone. I do not have to touch anything on either of my devices. When I place the Air Pods Max around my neck or left one ear cup, the music pauses. When I place both ear cups back on my ears, the music auto resumes. I tested this for several hours and it has never failed.

As for the Bose QC35 and XM4’s, no matter if they both have multi device pairing, I am always having issues. Both headsets never switch to my other device without me having to manually disconnect 1 of 2 devices (the one I’m not using). This is frustrating and I hate doing this multiple times per day.

Music Quality:

Air Pods Max

Sony XM4

Bose QC35

The Air Pods Max I would rate have 30% better music quality than the XM4. I tested Hip-Hop, Bossa Nova, Jazz, Classical, Deep House, D&B, Techno, Trip Hop, Dubstep and Lounge. The must is more engaging, and I can hear the instruments and vocals in more detail – an elevated musical experience. The biggest difference for me was Jazz, Classical, Bossa Nova and Salsa – I would say a 50% better listening experience for these genres.

Build Quality:

Air Pods Max

Sony XM4

Bose QC35

Air Pods Max are easily the highest quality headphones I have handled; they look at and feel premium and are crafted exceptionally well – even the buttons are strong and durable; these are basically on another level entirely. When extending the headphones, there is a steel connector with resistance when adjusting the sizing to fit your head properly.

The XM4/QC35 are hard plastic – nothing special or extravagant; the XM4 look better than the QC35 however.

Spatial Audio Note:

I was completely blown away when I loaded an Apple TV series on my phone to test the spatial audio feature. It felt like I had speakers surround me in a 360 fashion at the move theatres. I stood there for 5 minutes with my eyes wide opened in disbelief that headphones were capable of offering this level of experience. It is something that you have to try it to believe it. This is what sold me the most.

---

Are the Air Pods Max worth the price? Based on my experience so far, I would say yes. I was actually expecting them to be close to the XM4’s, but on certain categories, they have accelerated immensely.

Reviewed in Mexico on February 17, 2021
Como todo lo que hace Apple, estos audífonos no son la excepción. Los materiales son de muy alta calidad (al menos así se percibe desde que abres la caja). Solo la caja la podrías vender en mil pesos.

He visto reseñas que por la mitad de precio podrías conseguir algo de igual o mejor calidad, puede ser, pero dudo que superen la interfaz de usuario que Apple logró con estos. Acercas los audífonos al teléfono y listo. Yo no soy audiófilo, por eso puedo decir que por mucho supera a mis anteriores audífonos (Marshall II)

El modo ambiental es super pro, es como si se modulara el ruido exterior y llegara a tus oídos una onda de sonido perfectamente modulada.
