At first glance, the first over-ear headphones from Apple looks quite big and bulky with a Cybertruck like look. The anodized aluminum cups might remind you of the Apple Watch series as it also includes a Digital Crown. However, the headband with canopy spanning and a combo of knit mesh at the top makes it comfortable to wear while the stainless steel frame makes the headphone look elegant. Moreover, it will be available in five different colors right after the Apple AirPods Max release date South Africa: silver, space gray, pink, sky blue and green. The headphone doesn’t include any Apple logo visibly but the design will definitely make you recognize it. For those of you who are in the market for a noise-canceling headphone, there is the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 and Sony WH-1000XM4 you can check out. These are cheaper compared to the Apple AirPods Max South Africa price.
Considering the price tag, it’s not too unfair to assume that the first over-ear headphones from Apple will be providing top-notch noise cancellation feature and according to Apple, it will be ‘industry-leading’. The headphone will include Apple’s custom-built driver to make sure users get to listen to every single note with higher clarity. There are six outside facing microphone to detect all the noise around users and two microphones inside to detect what the user is hearing. These microphones along with the dynamic driver by Apple and their H1 chip in each cup will make sure it is blocking all the necessary outside noise while providing the best audio experience possible. We will have to wait for the Apple AirPods Max release date South Africa to find out how it really works in real life. For now, if you are looking for a simple pair of earbuds, there is the Apple AirPods 2 or Samsung Galaxy Buds Live you can check out.
Apple already offers this technology in their AirPods but thanks to the H1 chip that will be included in each cup along with dynamic head tracking feature, users will get the feeling of sitting in a theater while watching a movie. All the other simple AirPods features are also there like one-tap setup, seamless switching between other Apple devices, sharing audio streams between two different sets of AirPods, and 20 hours of battery life with spatial audio and Active Noise Cancellation technology enabled. Moreover, you can get 1.5 hours of listening time by just charging the headphone for 5 minutes.
Unfortunately, the price of this over-ear headphone will be a deal breaker for a lot of people. This headphone costs more than a Sony PS5 and will be available for R 7400 . It’s already available for pre-order and the Apple AirPods Max South Africa release date can be expected sometimes around December 14, 2020.
