Wireless headphones have made life a lot easier than before as you don’t have to drag your phone along while having wireless headphones on. With these wireless headphones, you don’t have to worry about the wire getting pulled or damaged. Apple released its first-ever wireless headphone back in 2016, called Airpods, which were accompanied by its second generation and Airpods Pro in 2019. Apple Airpods 1st and 2nd generation both priced at $159, whereas Airpods Pro is for $249. Last week, Apple surprised the users with a new edition of wireless headphones with Airpods Max, which are over-ear headphones worth $549.
The latest Airpods Max is not only expensive for normal people but high standards as well. The professional headphones used in studios cost more than $1000, which is why most people started having second thoughts about Airpods Max. People are now forced to think, what if the latest release by Apple is so good that it justifies its hefty price? Apple has undoubtedly never failed to amazing its users; hence people are pretty sure about the quality features that the company promises for Airpods Max.
There are still some die-hard Apple fans who cannot resist the new release and are willing to spend this huge amount on Airpods Max. Since a lot of people have been in the queue for ordering these headphones, the delivery time on the company’s website extended, and everyone who needs the new pair of Airpods Max will have to wait for three more months.
No matter how Apple gambles on its products with the prices, after receiving a combination of outrage and ridicule, each product became a massive hit. We never know; the tech giant can once again end up with similar results. The chart below shows some very expensive headphones in the market, with Apple Airpods Max still topping the list.
