Apple introduces AirPods Max, active noise cancellation and spatial audio for its first headband model

Rumours were right, Apple already has its first headband headphones. AirPods Max comes with all the technology of Apple's headphones in a new circumaural design.

AirPods Max comes to Apple's catalogue with all the technologies already included in AirPods and AirPods Pro. These new headphones are wireless, have active noise cancellation, automatically pair with other branded devices and feature spatial audio.

The company has just introduced these new headphones with a circumaural format. The design respects the classic lines of the brand with simple and clean shapes, in addition to the classic white colour that characterizes Apple so much, they can also be purchased in grey, blue, green and pink.

"Customacoustic design combined with powerful H1 chips and advanced software, allow AirPods Max to use computational audio to deliver the ultimate wireless sound experience," said Greg Joswiak, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. They ensure from the company that the total harmonic distortion is less than 1% over the entire dynamic range, even with the volume at maximum.

The H1 chip on each speaker analyzes an average of 9,000 operations per second to improve the sound that reaches our ears. Thanks to the size of the headphones you can afford to put these two chips instead of one as happens on the in-ear models.

But it doesn't end here, the AirPods Max also come with technologies like spatial audio, which detects with the gyroscope and accelerometer the movement of the head to create ambient sound. And it offers adaptive equalization, calibrate the sound signal transmitted to the user and equalize the bass and media in real-time depending on the adjustment and insulation of the pads.

In addition to the physical barrier to noise such as circumaural headphones, Apple's active noise cancellation is added. Each headset has three outward-facing microphones that detect ambient noise, while a fourth microphone inside the helmet monitors the sound that reaches the user's ears. If we want to hear the outside at a point in time for safety, transparency mode can be activated.

AirPods Max, the brand says, have a long-range of up to 20 hours of high sound, conversation or movie playback with active noise cancellation and spatial audio functions enabled. Its Smart Case keeps the headset in ultra-low power mode to save power when we don't use them.

Its design is designed to be comfortable and insulate as much as possible. The pads are made of memory foam and the headband is a mesh made of braided material to be breathable and distribute weight and pressure on both sides. Its optical and position sensors automatically detect if we put on or remove the helmets to start or stop the music, even if we only lift a headset.
