Following a few colors of the AirPods Max appearing on Amazon and Verizon last week, and then disappearing a few days later, today Silver and Space Gray options have emerged again. You can get the Silver and Space Gray AirPods Max on Amazon for $549.00, and both are in stock and ready to ship.

AirPods Max new feature

At the time of writing, you can only get the Silver AirPods Max on Verizon, priced as expected at $549.00. Similarly, on B&H Photo you'll find the Silver ‌AirPods Max‌ available to ship out today.

We've been keeping track of ‌AirPods Max‌ stock at third-party retailers because the headphones still have shipping estimates delayed by over a month on Apple's website. It's typically easier to purchase the Silver and Space Gray options, but last week we did see Sky Blue available for a short time.

‌AirPods Max‌ feature Active Noise Cancellation technology and the same Transparency mode, Adaptive EQ, and spatial audio features that are in the AirPods Pro. If you're hunting for even more AirPods deals, we track sales for every model of the AirPods in our Best AirPods Deals guide.

Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with these vendors. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

Probably not any better than a pair of $200 Bose or Sony headphones.
If you haven't done any real testing then you're making a baseless claim.

With loads of people out of work or on a reduced budget because of Covid-19, these definitely shouldn't be a priority.
Please step out of your reality and understand that just because some people are on layoff doesn't mean Apple should lower prices on their headphones. That makes zero sense. And if anyone is on a reduced budget then they have no business buying any entertainment devices since there are other priorities such as rent, mortgage, food, gas & electric. And if they are stupid enough to buy expensive tech then that's their business. Not sure why you think it's Apple's responsibility to lower prices.

Apple should tread carefully with production as to not severely outstrip supply with demand, or else you may see these end up in the $250 range.
Please don't pretend that you know Apple's business better than they do.

I’ll wait a while. Once supply meets demand, they will go on sale. I’d like to try them and keep them if I like them. But not at $549?
You really care about saving $50 when you're spending $500?

Not sure why everyone goes mad on the price of these. All apple stuff is overpriced and you can always get something as good for cheaper from a rival. That’s true of smartphones, tablets, laptops (although the M1 macs change that a bit) and the same with headphones now.
