Will there be new AirPods in 2021?
Apple’s new production is the Airpods max. These are very expensive at the US $550. These are so much more expensive than people would have imagined a pair of wireless over-ear headphones to cost. Even if they’d come from Apple.
When Apple sends a product onto the market, especially something that is their first attempt at, they usually bring out something that is difficult to compare to the other players. Right they don’t just make clones of the other products and the other competitors. They tend to just make difference and they tend to focus on characteristics and features that other people don’t.
In this case, they focused well. The big thing is the design. This does look like your standard pair of headphones. These are completely different types of look compared to everything else on the market now. But this is no sense to make $550 cost.
Construction of AirPods Max
These are different, the AirPods max is built really well there’s no way to deny that right there’s a lot of mental going on construction, and built quality and finishing it right is just really well done. When you compare them to sony’s xm4s. It never ever seems that these were poorly made in any sense right I’ve always thought that these were really well built but they’re plastic right there’s a lot of plastic in construction and it’s just a different class of product when you are comparing. There is a mesh on the top that is also a little bit different from anything else.
There are two control components here. There’s a button for turning active noise cancellation on and off and then also a jog dial. This is very similar to the crown that you can see on the Apple watch. The button up front the noise cancellation button. It’s in a great spot and works as intended we’ll get into the kind of sound quality in a bit. But in terms of the controls, it works perfectly. The crown is distinctly Apple and it does look really neat.
The battery life on these is rated for 20 hours which seems pretty good. This is like any kind of electronic device. This means an electronic device that can last 20 hours unplugged is usually pretty good. But in this product category, we’re dealing with competitors that have 30 35 hours of battery life.
When talking about sound it’s really important. We will see by comparing the airport max with the xm4s do they sound better. When compared to xm4 the airport max has better sounding pairs of headphones. The sound of xm4 is also good, their bases are good, it’s thumpy, it’s rich just like a nice bassy sound. However, if you’re listening to the staff that has higher frequencies. It is really good with the airport max. When talking about noise cancellation Sony’s xm4s are arguably the best in the business right now. These are very well reviewed and having spent the past few days trying to discern the differences between them. And also that they are very similar in terms and of their noise cancellation capabilities. The sony’s are better at removing a consistent environmental sound but when coming with airport max they are better at like voices or just sound. That is less consistent so if something pops up like a kid is talking in the background or someone else is watching a tv show these are slightly better at removing that kind of sound.
