Apple AirPods Max go on sale: Small things to know before buying

Must read

Apple has launched its first-ever over-ear headphones, AirPods Max. The premium headphones are priced at Rs 59,900 and are already up for pre-order. The sales start December 15. The new AirPods Max come in five colour options: Space Gray, Sky Blue, Silver, Pink and Green. With AirPods Max, Apple enters the space occupied by the likes of Sony, Bose, Jabra and Senneiser. How well the new Apple hardware compares to the top-end devices from these companies remains to be seen, but going by the company’s track record is likely to be a worthy rival. So, for all those who plan to buy AirPods Max here are some small, but, not-to-miss details.
What you get inside the box
* AirPods Max headphones
* Smart Case
* Lightning to USB-C cable
What add-ons you can buy and for how much
* 20W USB-C Power Adapter: Rs 1,900
* Lightning to 3.5mm Audio Cable (1.2m): Rs 3,500
* AppleCare+ for AirPods Max: Rs 6,900, offers up to two years of tech support and accidental damage protection
Compatibility with Apple devices
Works with iPhone 8 or later and iPod touch (7th generation) with the latest version of iOS; 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2nd generation or later), 11-inch iPad Pro, 10.5-inch iPad Pro, iPad (5th generation or later), iPad Air (3rd and 4th generation) and iPad mini (5th generation) with the latest version of iPadOS; and Apple TV with the latest version of tvOS.
Using Apple AirPods Max with non-Apple devices
You can surely pair the new Apple headphones with your Android device, but you may not get the full features of the device. This is what Apple says: AirPods Max can be used as Bluetooth headphones with Apple devices using earlier software and with non-Apple devices, but functionality is limited. “The key features that users will miss out on include instant pairing, automatic device switching, spatial audio, and more,” says a report in 9to5mac.
Replacement ear cushions
For those who want to customise their AirPods Max, Apple is offering replacement cushions for Rs 6,500. The others can buy them as a backup pair or may be later as replacement for worn out cushions.
