Five fatal flaws in deciding not to buy AirPods Max as soon as it was published

Apple officially announced the headset AirPods Max , and it provides many powerful features. However, there are many things worth complaining about on this headset, and people will even give up buying it. So in this article, I will explain the 5 main reasons why I think AirPods Max is not worth buying so far from the perspective of persuasion.


First seeing AirPods Max, many people will naturally talk about its appearance. Although everyone’s aesthetics are different, the design language of AirPods Max is very similar to the prototype leaked before. From the previous netizens’ views on the appearance of the prototype, the design of AirPods Max is not Not very pleasing.

Second only to its appearance, the most conspicuous part of AirPods Max is its price. Although we all know that Apple has never been polite to consumers in terms of price, it is hard to imagine the price of $549. It can enter the mass market, not to mention its similar functions, the WH-1000XM4 launched by Sony is almost half the price, and it is still on the low side of a very important thing.

No 3.5mm headphone jack

That's right, this expensive headset is mainly wireless, so it does not provide a 3.5mm headphone jack, so the devices that can be used with this wireless headset are quite limited.

Storage is not easy

Headphones are different from ordinary wireless bluetooth headphones. They always need some work in storage. For this reason, the common method is to make the earphone part foldable, but AirPods Max does not have such a design, you can only Rotate the earphone 90 degrees and put it into the earphone sleeve. You can imagine it will be a lot of space in the bag.

Sound quality

Finally, and the most worrying place, that is, what is the sound quality of AirPods Max? Although the official did not specify the audio format supported by the headset, it is known that iOS products do not support audio formats such as aptX or LDAC, so the "high-definition sound quality" featured by AirPods Max can only be seen at present.
