Are Apple’s Airpods Max wireless headphones still worth their $550 price tag for Android users who don’t get all the features (including their awesome Spatial Audio)?

No reason to buy that shit if you already have an Airpods. Its quite better than that garbage Airpod max.
Gabriel Salunga

personaly I think that these things are dogshit simply because they cost more than twice some of the other headphones, and have similar sound quality meaning you pay much more for a slight difference in sound quality.

It's an overpriced piece of ... design. Sound is garbage due to closed configuration and a bonus of huge level of condensation inside the cups. Thanks but not))

Ha, the 'Samsung Use with Apple Watch' classic! I bet the Samsung phone is for work -- specifically for his youtube reputation and to befriend the Samsung fanboys. While the iPhone is what he secretly uses for privat ;)

Michael Rocha
Michael Rocha Vor 6 Tage
Maybe its the case for some people to perceive others who have these headphones as rich or cool, for me, not really. I'll just look at it like someone got stooped into buying a dumb product. Apple really does view their consumers as a majority of being gullible. I have a pair of airpods gen 2 or 1.5 whatever they are for about 2 years now, and don't see a need for another set, since they work just like when I got them. Though, when black ones come out, I'll be tempted for sure as long as they're the same build as the gen 2 "1.5"

AirPods Pro Max for PC (Windows) Gaming and Discord. Hi, I own Beyerdynamic DT 990. They are several years old and I’m looking for a new pair of headphones. My first idea was to buy the DT1990 and a decent DAC and just upgrade my current pair. Then I thought about the features and that I really want to get rid of the cables. If I pay 600€ I want to be able to use my headphones in every situation. The lag of a 3.5mm Jack on almost every flagship phone is forcing me into Bluetooth. I own the AirPods 2 and they work just fine. But the audio is not as good as I want it to be. I want to use the AirPods Max for 1. Gaming My first concern is the delay while using Bluetooth. Is it noticeable? I mean there are a lot of wireless options in the market which are specifically designed to game. So the latency should be okay. Do you have any experience with that? Can I use them with a cable? If there is any delay in the wireless mode, can I get rid of this while using a cable? 2. Talking in discord (while using my external mic) I’m not going to use the internal mic. But if I talk to people I like to hear myself because otherwise I get a uncountable feeling. I’m not sure if you know what I mean. 3. Battery replacement I’m planing to use them often and potentially for years. Obviously, because the price is 600€. Do you know how easy the battery is replaced? What are the costs if Apple is going to do the job? 4. Listening to music I guess this point I have to find out by myself. Music is a personal thing. I’m looking forward for your input. Thanks.

Lots of people are reporting that after long uses they get condensation in the ear cups under the magnetic foam padding. This can be a long term problem creating mould and degrading the enternal components. And could potentially cause the risk of an electric shock.

Please do a video about the water issue! Because of the aluminum (known to extract heat from your body and condense it into water). With no water resistance and no way to fix them, did apple just make a HUGE mistake??

0:20 I'm curious about the whole Apple Watch and an Android Phone experience. He obviously has an iphone to make it work, but I wonder how he syncs or splits apps and functions between them. The Apple Watch seems to be far better than other smartwatches, but I'm not too sure about getting into the Apple ̶p̶r̶i̶s̶o̶n̶ walled garden. It seems like a good way to get "the best of both worlds".

Got a pair of Studio 3's when I bought my laptop, and besides needing to change the headband (plastic sides cracked), I find them okay as a daily driver. Definitely a case of diminishing returns with the newer models.

Before watching the vid. I generally don't like Apple as a company (for a myriad of reasons) but I truly hope those headphones are truly great. As an owner of Sony's XM3's I do wonder whether or not Sony fixed any of the problems (I've had) with the headphones with the XM4.
