My understanding of Apple’s company started with the original iPhone. Because I was also engaged in the design industry, I would pay more attention to Apple’s products. My first iPhone was 3GS, and I changed my iPhone every year. But other Apple devices are also being watched and used, such as the iPod Calssic 3rd generation and the first generation iPod Touch. When Apple launched the first generation of AirPods, I was not optimistic and didn’t buy it in the first time. I went to the apple store to experience AirPods when I was traveling in Xiamen. I immediately placed an order and waited for several weeks before using it. After that, the AirPods Pro released in October 2019 was also the first time to buy, with a strong noise reduction function.
In December 2020, Apple released a brand new AirPods Max headset through the official website. After the official website placed an order and paid, it was found that the delivery time had changed from 5-6 days to 12-14 weeks, and the mood instantly became bad. Fortunately, the company is near the apple store. I went to line up at 9:30 this morning. The people were not bad. About 5 people bought AirPods Max headsets. After the opening at 10 o’clock, everyone bought them in order. The offline store only had black, silver, and red. I chose black and silver. Then there is the following unpacking.
Apple’s packaging style has not changed in recent years, and the front and back are 1:1 physical photos.
This time the original factory comes with a smart earphone cover, which is wrapped around the earphone host. I wonder if the second generation will come with it.
Paper and charging cable, without 20W charging head.
Although the headset weighs 384.8g, it doesn’t feel heavy on the head, and the chuck is just right.
What I left for myself is the space gray AirPods Max. The aluminum earmuffs are very textured, and there will be a “colorful black” feeling under the light. In daily use, black/silver is the most classic.
AirPods Max is not cheap, but when has Apple’s unboxing experience disappointed you?
The curved net of the headband is a skin-like material, which is easier to stick to gray. If you have more dandruff, please change it to another color.
The big earmuffs are earmuffs, the material is similar to the HomePod series, the mesh fabric is just a lot more delicate. The black oval in the earmuffs is the transsensor, and each of the two earmuffs has one. The L/R logo is marked inside the earmuffs.
Noise reduction/sound pickup microphone and Bluetooth antenna, as well as a charging port. The charging cable is Type-C to Lightning.
Another physical button, an enlarged version of the digital crown. Press to pause music, answer incoming calls and wake up siri. Rotate to adjust the volume steplessly. At first I thought that this digital crown had the same scale as the watch, but I realized that it was infinite after I got it started.
The earmuffs are designed with magnetic suction, which is easy to remove. The 4 magnets are hidden under the 4 screws on the headset.
The sensor can be seen at a glance after removing the earmuffs. Put on the headset to turn on, take off the headset to pause/sleep.
The headphone unit is said to have been developed and designed by Apple itself.
Although everyone has been criticizing the iPhone’s declining workmanship over the years, it still feels that the workmanship of a component is very exquisite on AirPods Max, and it is priced at $549.
The telescopic adjustment rod of the head beam is a cylindrical stainless steel material.
The maximum stretch range of AirPods Max.
This time the original factory comes with a smart headset case.
The material of the smart earphone cover is the same as the double-sided clip of the iPad Pro. The outer surface is skin-like and the inner suede can prevent the earphone from scratching.
With a magnet inside, the headset can sleep like an ipad.
After putting it in and sucking it up, AirPods Max enters sleep mode.
The workmanship of AirPods Max, as Apple’s first self-developed and designed large earphone, the overall weight is heavy, but the feeling of wearing it on the head does not feel heavy, and it does not hold the head. For friends wearing glasses Very friendly.
The whole earphone is designed with aluminum alloy+stainless steel, and the head beam is wrapped with skin-like plastic material and mesh surface. And the earmuffs do not use traditional lambskin or protein skin, but are unified with the HomePods series. The comfort is good after wearing it, and it doesn’t feel stuffy.
The noise reduction part is very strong, much better than AirPods Pro, and much better than Q35 second generation. I took the subway back to the company at noon. After turning on the noise reduction mode, it became quiet instantly. The subway track sound was filtered very clean, and the surrounding voices were still a bit, but I couldn’t hear what I was talking about.
The part about sound quality will be shared next time.
