When will the AirPods Max be available?
The Apple AirPods Max are available to order today (Tuesday 8th December) from the Apple Store app in the UK and in more than 25 other countries and regions. The headphones start shipping on Tuesday, December 15.
How much do the AirPods Max cost?
Previous rumors had indicated that the headphones could cost around the same as headphones from Bose, Sennheiser, and Sony. However, in recent months there’s been speculation that the AirPods over-ears could cost more than that, and indeed they do – the AirPods Max cost £549.
There was no mention of the sports variant also thought to be in development, which if rumors were true, would have cost £349.
Finally, we’re getting a pair of AirPod headphones in different colors. The AirPods Max will be made available in five different colors and they are space grey, silver, sky blue, green, and pink. For keeping the headphones safe when out and about, there’s a slim Smart Case that puts the AirPods Max in an ultra-low-power mode to preserve battery. That suggests to us that the headphones don’t fully turn off.
