AirPods Max see near-$120 price cut in early Black Friday deal

Apple's best headphones are also its most expensive but, with Black Friday just around the corner, you don't have to pay full price for a set of AirPods Max.

Right now, Amazon is offering one of the best AirPods deals we've seen to date with close to $120 off Apple's premium over-ear cans. At $429.98, this is the lowest the AirPods Max have ever gone there and just $1 more than their all-time low price at any retailer.

AirPods Max are the first Apple-branded over-ear headphones and offer a premium listening experience with top-quality speaker hardware and active noise cancellation. The Apple-designed dynamic drivers provide high-fidelity audio which is perfect for pairing with Apple Music's Dolby Atmos content.

ANC allows you to block out distractions and focus on what's playing in your ears. Whether you're commuting, working in a noisy office, or just want to totally tune into your music, ANC is the best way to turn down the external noise. When you need to hear your surroundings, you can turn on Transparency mode to filter outside noises back in.

As is the case with Apple's in-ear AirPods, AirPods Max feature several sensors so they can detect when you're wearing them, the positioning of your head, and any movement for spatial audio. They also detect when they go into the included case so they can power down.

Inside, AirPods Max are equipped with an Apple H1 chip in each earcup which offer instant pairing and automatic switching between your Apple devices. You'll also enjoy hands-free access to Siri so you can control playback, make a call, dictate a message, and much more. There's also an Apple Watch-style Digital Crown that lets you precisely control volume, skip tracks, answer calls, and activate Siri.

You'll get 20 hours of listening time on a single charge with ANC or Transparency mode enabled. It takes just five minutes of charge time to add 90 minutes of listening time thanks to fast charging.
