iFixit disassembles AirPods Max, the left and right designs are different

iFixit recently dismantled the $550 AirPods Max to learn what is unique about this expensive headset.

At such a high price, what components are included? First of all, the headphones on the left and right sides of AirPods Max also have H1 chips, and also include 2 sets of 40mm dynamic driving units, 2 sets of magnetic headphone pads, and 9 microphones, of which 8 microphones are used for active noise reduction.

From the X-ray perspective, there are 2 batteries in the headset, but the two batteries are also placed in the headset on one side instead of having one each, and the motherboards on both sides are also different.
