The only thing “Max” about the new #AirPodsMax is the price.

Discussing its special features, the company highlighted that AirPods Max will automatically detect when it’s on a user’s head using optical and position sensors. “Once in place, AirPods Max play audio and can pause once removed or when the user simply lifts one ear cup,” the website said. The premium wireless cans offer 20-hour battery life and charge over Apple’s Lightning connector.
The high-end wireless headphones are up for pre-order in the US and 25 other countries, including India. When the headphones went on sale Tuesday morning, initial orders for all colours were available for delivery as early as December 15. But soon there were shipping delays announced as orders came in.
