There’s a lot we like about the AirPods Max, which offer great sound, excellent active noise cancellation, and seamless connectivity to all your Apple products. And while we normally only recommend Apple’s premium over-ear headphones to those with unlimited cash, they just got a big price cut on Black Friday, making them worth considering for everyone else.

The AirPods Max are: currently at its lowest ever price of $429 on Amazon. That’s certainly not cheap, but it does cost a cool $120 off the full retail price of the $549 cans. This price applies to the Space Gray and Sky Blue models; the silver headphones currently cost a little more at $439, while the pink and green options cost $479. Anyway, if you’ve been waiting for a price drop on these expensive tins, this is the biggest we’ve seen yet.

The very best headphones from Apple

The AirPods Max offer great sound and noise cancellation in a sleek design, and their high price is much easier to swallow with this big discount.

Once we got past the sticker shock, we really enjoyed our time with the AirPods Max when we first reviewed them. These premium headphones look great and were comfortable to wear for hours, and have magnetically attached ear cups that are easy to remove and clean. They also impressed in terms of audio quality, holding up well to our favorite over-ear headphones in the Sony WH-1000MX4.

You get a bit more bass on the Sony cans, although we found that Apple’s headphones offered a wider soundstage, allowing us to hear individual parts of a track more clearly. The AirPods Max also support Apple’s Spatial Audio technology, enabling immersive 360-degree sound with supported music, movies, and shows. And because these are Apple-made headphones, they pair directly with your iPhone, iPad or Mac and support features like Find My tracking and hands-free Hey Siri support for controlling the AirPods Max with your voice.

The AirPods Max’s active noise cancellation is one of the best we’ve tried on headphones, as it did a great job of drowning out the noise of the daily commute. They also stand out with Transparency mode, which, like on the AirPods Pro, will amplify the sounds around you to keep you aware of nearby cars and pedestrians while you’re jamming on a walk.

Plus: All the best AirPods Black Friday deals.

That said, there are a few drawbacks here. Apple’s cans got us around 20 hours of battery life, which is solid enough for a few days of regular use, but doesn’t quite match the epic 30 hours the Sony WH-1000XM4 gave us. We’re also not big fans of the AirPods Max case, which only really protects the outer ear cups and leaves the rest of the headphones exposed.

We should also mention that the Sony WH-1000XM4 is our pick for the best headphones overall on sale for almost half the price of the AirPods Max at $248. If you just want some great sounding cans with excellent sound, noise cancellation and battery life, these are the way to go. But if you’ve fallen in love with the AirPods Max’s attractive design and want something especially fun in the Apple ecosystem, this is probably as cheap as they’ll get for a while.
