    Ok so for those asking: These or the Sony XM4? I’ve personally ordered a black pair of these for myself. I think I’ll be using them for most everyday listening. But for my flights and travel I have a feeling I’m gonna hate the limited Android multi device support and get annoyed and switch back to the Sonys ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I’m glad I watched this. I have the pros and 2s. To me it isn’t about the money. I definitely pay for quality however I don’t think 550 is worth for what I’m getting. I have some studio headphones that cost way more but no waterproofing for the gym, etc etc nah I’m good

    I have had two of them and had to send them back. The first ones had connection problems and right ear cup noise but I could reset them. I sent them back for a replacement. I got my second AirPods max and they were even worse. A different pair in a different colour. They had the same issues but won't resett. I'm getting a refund this time and refund on the apple care also. Very disappointed that Apple put out a product that doesn't match it's high price. When they worked they were great at times but the continuous problems on and off and then finally not being able to reset them made me just want a refund. They look great and are strong. The sound quality was brilliant at times and the noise cancellation the best. Another reason I didn't go for a replacement was that they wanted to send a replacement in the same colour. I wanted to make sue I didn't get the same ones back. I DON'T THINK THIS WOULD HAVE HAPPENED IN STEVE JOBS DAY. I also had all my devices on the latest upgrades of software and the headphones are also. Didn't make any difference to the annoying things happening at times with them. I tried everything to get them sorted.

    the case was designed for easy carry.. no bulkiness there, you can easily stick it in your pockets.. nobody brings those bulky zippered cases.. most of the time, you just rest your headphones in your neck when it’s not in use.. that’s what i do! ✌🏼

    You know, If Apple made the mesh headband like the beats headband but combined the mesh into it, made the head adjustments more thicker to prevent breaking, and made the headphones foldable made the price around 240...I think they would have a great profit

    You can receive faith right now through prayer (Prayer is talking with God) The following is a suggested prayer: “Lord Jesus I need you, thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open up the door of my life and receive you as my Lord and savior. Thank you for forgiving our and giving us a shot at eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life and make me the kind person you want me to be. AMEN”❤️

    I never knew what’s out there after the iPhone 8 a few years ago because it seemed like a lot of the tech was matured to a point where it didn’t make much of a difference. Very glad to see they are still innovating at a high level while producing noticeable results on headphones. Also, Brownlee got me back to being educated and cultured in the tech world.

    I own a pair of Sony WH-1000XM3 and Bose quietcomfort 35 ii, Sony fell apart after 3 years of constant use. The Bose were also frequently used as they were more comfortable. Just got AirPod Max to replace the Sony. I’m impressed they sound great (I like the treble on them) and I was expecting to return these after a week. Very surprised with the ambient mode, they are perfect. But I don’t like the way they look and end up getting the black ones. The case is indeed stupid.

  120. Alex Saldana

    Alex Saldana26 ימים לפני

    @Tom Stevens that's just it. To you they are worth it, but not to me which is fine. But i think its important to call out even the companies whose products you purchase when they do shady shit. Like for example, apple has made it increasingly more difficult to have the products that they make be repaired by anyone. Because they want you spend hundreds, if not thousands on a new phone/ipad/macbook/whatever rather than repair it for significantly cheaper. And they also cheap out on accessories that come with the phone or ipad. They give you a 5 wat power brick which takes several hours to charge the device versus a 20 wat which charges it in a little over an hour. If im going to spend over a thousand dollars on a new phone, at least give me a higher wattage charger.

  121. Tom Stevens

    Tom Stevens26 ימים לפני

    @Alex Saldana The price may be ridiculous for you, but definitely not for the people who bought it, including me. Upgraded from the Sony XM3s after over 2 years and the AirPods Max are an upgrade in almost every aspect except the case design and battery life. I got a Waterfield Max Shield case to solve the former, and the AirPods Max still last all day, and I charge it overnight anyways, so I don't care about the latter. And while the AirPods Max lack sweat resistance, it's not a major deal-breaker for me, since I still have my XM3s for the gym. Also, there's going to be a Sports version of the AirPods Max coming out soon anyways. Besides, you don't really want to be moving around a lot with your Max a lot considering it's got a metal design. And while I agree they're overpriced by about 40-60 bucks, they're worth it for most people who have an iPhone, iPad or Apple TV.

  122. Alex Saldana

    Alex Saldana26 ימים לפני

    And as he said, they are great headphones but not worth $550.

  123. Alex Saldana

    Alex Saldana26 ימים לפני

    @Tom Stevens because its their newest audio device and their prices for the products they make are ridiculous. I actually am an apple consumer, but there is a big difference between mindless consumers and knowledgeable consumers.

  124. Tom Stevens

    Tom Stevens26 ימים לפני

    @Alex Saldana Huh, no offence, but you sound just like another one of those typical Apple haters. All headphones can get damaged from the dumbest ways possible. Don't know why you have to single out the AirPods Max to point that out.

    Lol what? 550 bucks is like budget headphones in the overall market where headphones go up to 60 grand. If you want your headphones to do more than play music, you better have more than 60 grand to drop on headphones.
