Apple announced its over-the-ear headphones, the AirPods Max last week. The headphones are priced at the luxury of $549 which has received criticism just like the original AirPods and the AirPods Pro. But even with that, the AirPods Max got sold out on Apple’s website the day it got announced in the USA, with other retailers including Best Buy and Target back-ordering the pair of headphones.
The AirPods Max was globally launched yesterday, and few of the European Countries have including France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom have the Apple Stores stocked up with same-day Pickup available. The colour options seem limited to Space Gray and Silver in the majority of the stores, but if you are lucky enough you could grab a different colour along with the optional Lightning to 3.5mm audio cable.
You can initiate a Pickup request by adding the Product to your bag and selecting the “I’ll pick it up” option during checkout. Once you have done that, you will need to choose a pickup date and time, and then complete the payment after filling in the details of the person who will be picking up the Headphones from the Store. The Person must carry a Government-issued ID, and arrive in the appointed time and follow all the health protocols such as wearing a mask and the mandatory temperature check before picking up the device.
The AirPods Max come with USB-C to Lightning cable and a Smart Case that pushes the device to Ultra-Low-Power State to save the battery. It inherits the Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency, Adaptive EQ, Auto-Switching, Audio Sharing, Hey Siri, H1 headphone chip, Spatial Audio with 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound support, and easy pairing from the existing AirPods and AirPods Pro devices.
