Holy hell, it’s September. A major Apple event is next week, and summer is pretty much over (except for the crippling heat, that is). Before you know it, we’ll be talking about “Techtober” and holiday shopping. Wait, before you throw your keyboard or phone at me, I’ll get to the deals.
First up, you can pick up the AirPods Max in select colors (silver, pink, blue, and green) for $429, which is a cool $120 off their full price. This is the best possible price for a new pair of AirPods Max so far. They are regularly discounted to $479, so you should never pay full price, but this deal doesn’t come around all the time.
While $429 is still a sizable amount for headphones, the noise-canceling AirPods Max are some of the best options around for wireless listening on Apple devices. They use Apple’s H1 chip for seamless connections to iPhones, iPads, and Macs, but they also support Bluetooth 5.0 for wider compatibility. (You can, if you want to, listen wired and not worry about battery life, but that requires a $35 cable.) These cans are a little hefty, but they’re very plush compared to most plastic-y competitors, and they support spatial audio. For all of that, $429 is certainly much more digestible than their full price of $549, even if they don’t fold down and the case is a bit wacky. Read our review.
