worth maybe $300 right now. $449 is still way too much this long after release.

Still wildly expensive for what's being offered, even by Apple standards.

I paid $429 for my AirPods Max a couple of years ago in one of the sales. Totally worth it. They are not perfect and I prefer my XM3's for long-haul travel, but for a headset to wear while working from home they are peerless. The transparency mode and microphones for phone calls are excellent - as is the noise canceling.

The Sony XM3's are just a better travel headphone because they can fold, and they make a better seal. With AirPods Max, I find that when I lean my head against the headrest, the seal breaks and noise leaks in. The Sony's have a leather/pleather cup which doesn't do that.

I'm no audiophile, but to my ears they sound excellent. Not everyone loves Spatial Audio, and while not everything sounds better in spatial, I do really enjoy it when it works. Head-tracked spatial is quite amazing.

I recently purchased a lightly used (and still under warranty) Blue pair on eBay for $275. I work in audio and I think they're really good cans but not worth $449 or more. The used market is full of fakes but if you know what to look for and find a good seller, there's good deals to be had.
