The insanely expensive Apple AirPods Max have already found their first potential problem. They turned out to be very difficult

Many large on-ear wearers will agree that the weight of a headset can affect the long-term experience. Heavy headphones feel good if you do not take them off for several hours in a row, and for those suffering from cervical osteochondrosis (a fairly common disease these days), the use of such headphones, even for a short period of time, delivers tangible discomfort.

As it became known, the new Apple AirPods Max on-ear headphones, which today are presented by Apple, turned out to be not only insanely expensive (in Russia the price is 63,000 rubles, and they ask for another 6,000 rubles for the extended AppleCare + warranty), but also heavier than competitors.

At first glance, 384 grams is not that much. If you do not take into account the time of use and possible health problems of users, described at the beginning of the note. However, it is enough to look at the following comparison to understand that the Apple AirPods Max were very heavy:

AirPods Max – 384,8 г
Audeze LCD-1 – 250 г
Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless – 380 г
Bose 700 – 249 г
Bose Quiet Comfort 35 II – 310 г
Sennheiser PXC 550-II – 227 г
Sony WH-1000XM4 – 254 г

It remains to await reviews to see if Apple has managed to properly balance the weight of the device on the headband and ear cups to minimize fatigue over extended use.

Sales of the device will start on December 15th.
