We've seen a few colors of the AirPods Max drop to $449 in 2022, but this is one of the first times where all color options have been discounted by $99. In comparison to previous discounts, this is the second-best Amazon price we've ever tracked on the AirPods Max.

AirPods Max feature Active Noise Cancellation technology and the same Transparency mode, Adaptive EQ, and spatial audio features that are in the AirPods Pro. For charging, the headphones come with a Smart Case made out of a soft material that puts AirPods Max in an ultra low-power state to preserve battery charge when not in use.

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.

This product is waiting for its "iPad 2 (2011) moment" where it gets a functional case, proper on and off button, and a $399 starting price to better compete with others in the market.

I'd be interested to know how these are selling. I have a pair and, despite being a huge Apple enthusiast, I could only justify it when I used my credit card's banked reward points. And despite having them, I don't use them that much. I have a feeling they'll probably get discontinued soon.

These are brilliant and a significant step up in sound quality from the AirPods Pro. Yes, a bit expensive, but worth every penny, even at full retail price. I’ve had them for over a year now and they’re still the best pair of headphones I’ve ever had. Remarkably durable as well. They still look brand new and I use them almost every day.

Unless somebody can say otherwise, I’d say this is the steepest discount I’ve seen, especially since it’s offered on every color on Amazon.
I bought mine from SimplyMac for $439 last summer. Pretty sure every color was for that price at the time of the sale.
