  • The ear cushions are made from acoustic memory foam with a breathable mesh layer on top. Hopefully, that’ll make for less sweaty ears in warmer months!
  • They attach magnetically, are easy to take off, and popping them back into place is immensely satisfying!
  • The ear cushions are large and oval shaped, so they won’t uncomfortably press against your ears like some circular ear pads can!

By looking around the AirPods Max and you’ll find just two buttons, there’s the Digital Crown, a much larger version than the dial on the Apple Watch , and a button that switches between noise canceling and transparency modes. So therefore you can press it once to play / pause, twice to skip tracks, or three times to go back and holding it down will activate Siri.

Computational Audio

  • With a powerful Apple‑designed H1 chip in each cup, the custom acoustic design, and advanced software.
  • AirPods Max use computational audio to create a breakthrough listening experience.
  • By tapping into each chip’s 10 audio cores, computational audio helps block outside noise, adapts audio to the fit and seal of your ear cushions, and makes movie scenes sound like they’re happening all around you!
