Apple has continued the evolution of its ever-popular AirPods and AirPods Pro with the announcement of the all-new AirPods Max. The new wireless headphones combine a number of classic AirPods functionalities with a new over-ear design.

Key features of the AirPods Max include a custom acoustic design, Adaptive EQ, Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency mode and spatial audio. The headphones themselves are joined using a knit mesh canopy that spans the headband, distributing weight equally and reducing pressure on the wearer.

Another stand-out is the AirPods Max battery life, with 20 hours of audio, talk time or movie playback. The Smart Case that comes with the headphones also puts them into an ultralow power state, allowing battery life to be preserved. The AirPods Max are due to release in five different color options, including “Space Gray,” “Silver,” “Sky Blue,” “Green” and “Pink.”

Launching the new project, Apple senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing Greg Joswick said, “AirPods are the most popular headphones in the world, beloved for their effortless setup, incredible sound quality, and iconic design. With AirPods Max, we are bringing that magical AirPods experience to a stunning over-ear design with high-fidelity audio. The custom acoustic design, combined with powerful H1 chips, and advanced software enable AirPods Max to use computational audio to wirelessly deliver the ultimate personal listening experience.”

Apple’s all-new AirPods Max are available to order from the Apple web store now — priced at $549 USD — and will receive a full release on December 15.

In other tech news, Apple could also soon be launching a MacBook with a matte black finish.
