Score a new Amazon low on AirPods Max $119

Amazon is now offering Apple’s AirPods Max in all styles for $430. Down from $549, you’re looking at a new Amazon all-time low at $119 off and $30 under our previous mention from the retailer. 

Delivering a flagship listening experience backed by Apple’s H1 chip, the new AirPods Max arrive with some of the best-in-class active noise cancellation you’ll find on the market. That’s alongside support for Hey Siri, Spatial Audio, and 20-hours of playback. A premium build rounds out the equation, pairing an aluminum frame with a knit-mesh canopy and memory foam ear cushions. We found them to be a compelling yet pricey offering in our hands-on review, though today’s deal certainly helps with the latter.
