Apple AirPods Max: A new gadgets for the music lovers
Updated: Dec 28, 2020
It is a bit in the opposite direction. After an excellent Earbud, Apple jumps into headphones.
Another addition to the Apple store, AirPods Max. Although it is a bit strange. After a successful market in the earbuds (Airpod Pro) Apple engineers bring over-ear headphones (AirPods Max) into the market. Of course, they entered with lots of cool features which can be seen the first time in the industry.
Apple AirPods Max Features:
The stainless steel frame is wrapped with a soft-to-the-touch material for a remarkable combination of strength, flexibility, and comfort.
The canopy spanning the headband is made from a breathable knitted mesh, distributing weight to reduce on-head pressure.
Telescoping arms smoothly extend and stay where you set them, for a consistent fit and seal.
The beautifully anodised aluminum cups feature a revolutionary mechanism that allows each cup to rotate independently and balance pressure.
A custom-designed mesh textile wraps the ear cushions to provide pillow-like softness while listening.
Crafted with acoustically engineered memory foam, the ear cushions gently create an immersive seal that is the foundation of incredible sound.
The Digital Crown lets you precisely control volume, skip between tracks, answer phone calls, and activate Siri. See the video below shared from the Apple site for the crown movement and the colors available.
Overall it is a stunning design. And of course, the finishing is up to the mark as expected from Apple.
Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) is the key feature available in the Airpod pro compare to all other manufacturers. A similar or better feature will be available in Airpods Max.
The unit is built with Nine microphones total. Eight microphones for ANC and three microphones for voice pickup (two shared with ANC and one additional microphone)
To cancel unwanted external sound, a total of six outward-facing microphones to detect noise in your environment, and two inward-facing microphones to measure what you’re hearing. Beamforming microphones help isolate your voice on phone calls, so it’s heard clearly — even in windy situations.
The Apple-designed dynamic driver produces a wide frequency range that uncovers the rich details of every sound — delivering your favorite songs with previously unheard texture and accuracy.
Adaptive EQ tailors sound to the bespoke fit and seal created by the ear cushions. Inward-facing microphones measure what you’re hearing, then adjust the frequencies of your music to deliver a rich, consistent experience that faithfully reproduces every note.
Spatial audio with dynamic head tracking.
There are 5 different sensors available in the Airpods Max. At this moment this is featured with an On-head detection. AirPods Max pauses audio when you take them off, and resume playback when you put them back on. So you never miss a beat. Already Apple using the audio volume level to understand some of the health-related features. I believe there is more to discover.
Optical sensor (each ear cup)
Position sensor (each ear cup)
Case-detect sensor (each ear cup)
Accelerometer (each ear cup)
Gyroscope (left ear cup)
And additionally, a case to cover the Airpods Max. When stored in their soft, slim Smart Case, AirPods Max enters an ultra‑low‑power state that preserves charge. Although, personally, I didn't like the cover by looking. But the tastes differ from person to person. With a full charge, this will run for 20 hours with ANC active.
This will be available for sale from 15/12/2020.
