Apple's AirPods Max have returned in stock at Verizon and B&H Photo today, with Silver and Space Gray models ready to ship out for delivery as soon as next week. You can get the Silver and Space Gray AirPods Max on Verizon for $549.00, but the other three colors are out of stock.

AirPods Max new feature

Additionally, you can get the Silver and Space Gray AirPods Max on B&H Photo, priced as expected at $549.00. Amazon doesn't have any stock available today, so these are your best options for purchasing the ‌AirPods Max‌ with a quick shipping estimate.

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 in past weeks 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.

Just imagine if those came with a protective case that has a port for charging like other AirPods. That would be cool.

I’m loving my AirPods Max, so not an issue for me. But this and a better included case would be what’s on my wish list.
I have a different opinion about the AirPods Max case. I think it works really well for home use. It gives you some extra protection on top of your desk or on your coffee table near the TV. Very easy to take in/out of the case, and it provides access for charging. It also matches the the general case style/materials of the iPad cases that Apple sells.

Was it really designed to be used for heavy travel? I doubt it. Anyone who wants to regularly take the AirPods Max back and forth from work or does a lot of plane travel will definitely want to look into other options. That's certainly a shortcoming of the design, but then again the bigger zippered cases or bags have shortcomings for home use. They're not really as convenient or accessible versus Apple's design.

Can't wait for a v2 that I can optionally hardwire to listen to higher definition audio. Not Apple's fault, limitations of Bluetooth technology.

I picked up a pair of gray ones at Target 2 days ago. All stores in the NY/NJ area were getting trickle supplies. I watched for a few days until they became available near me.
By the way, the sound quality and noise cancellation are phenomenal (for Bluetooth). I am not an audio expert by any means but the difference in the separation of musical instruments and detail are night and day from my Beats Solo 3, AirPods Pro and iHome Mini. Couldn’t be happier. The weight is not an issue and soon forgotten once on.

Also surprising they don't charge with the new MagSafe puck. Seems like a no-brainer to be able to stick that thing onto the side of one of the cups.
