Over the past few months, the best straight cash discount on the AirPods Max was about $30 on Amazon. Today's sale is the first time a major Apple reseller has knocked down the price of the AirPods Max to below $500, so if you are still shopping for a Sky Blue version of the AirPods Max, this is definitely the best sale around.

We track sales for every model of the AirPods in our Best AirPods Deals guide, so be sure to bookmark that page while you shop around for the wireless headphones.

Update: Amazon is now also offering the Silver AirPods Max at $499.00.

I can't use these for production. I can't walk down a city street without fear of these getting snatched. I wouldn't wear these in a conference call. And I can't work out with these. Therefore, I consider them purely travel headphones. Once they are in range of travel headphone prices, which max out at about $350 , then I will consider.

nope, too heavy for any serious listener . First 10 minutes is heaven , they do sound amazing, but then it will act like a neck muscle builder device. Also, and this might be unclear for many, but due to the used materials, they do not age well.

Today, for $500 you could buy 3.9 shares of AAPL and turn it into profit or you could waste money on a used material non-aging-well device that can't even play Apple Lossless.
