In the last couple of months of 2021, I was fortunate enough to be able to buy myself some AirPods 3 and a pair of AirPods Max.
Most people would think that it would be hard to incorporate both products into my everyday life since they pretty much do the same thing, but at different levels. However, it is with those different levels that have made both products some useful and necessary for me.
To put it an easier way, they both serve a specific purpose.
When it comes to the AirPods 3, I am more than likely to use those when I am at work (because I do have a full-time job on top of writing articles for Appleosophy). They can come in handy when I am in between clients and even just for listening to music on break or if I need to call someone.
Additionally, while the AirPods 3 may not have the same noise-canceling capabilities as the AirPods Max, they do provide me with a more than adequate substitute. That’s a big thing to me if you consider the fact that these are not the AirPods Pros.
For the AirPods Max, these are my go-to audio-listening devices when I am in my apartment. As mentioned previously, they do provide incredible noise cancellation that I have never previously experienced in my life.
They are very comfortable and I have found myself using them when streaming TV shows or movies from my Apple TV HD. Even though the embedded speaker in the TV is great, considering that it is 16 years old, the AirPods Max still make the audio quality and clarity better.
Making calls with AirPods Max are a lot better too since I’ve found I have been able to hear and understand people better with them and the noise cancellation feature turned on.
Music and podcasts sound great on them too, obviously.
If I ever have to do a short trip somewhere for a few days, I’d see myself bringing my AirPods 3 as my go-to audio device. Longer stretches would be up in the air, depending on the destination and my reasons for being there.
For any traveling that would be done on an airplane, I know for sure that I would be taking my AirPods Max. Not only do I not want to hear food crutching, the grumbling of other passengers, but I know for sure that I would internally lose my cool after hearing a baby screaming. I know they cannot always help it, but I sure don’t want to have to listen to it. With the AirPods Max, that problem is solved.
