Amazon today has one of the first $99 discounts on Apple's AirPods Max since February, available for $449.99 in four colors, down from $549.00. Most models can deliver as soon as May 18 with Prime delivery, and May 21 for regular shipping.

On Amazon, colors being discounted include Space Gray, Sky Blue, Silver, and Pink. AirPods Max deals above $50 have been very rare in 2024, with this deal being just the second time we've tracked a $99 discount so far this year. This isn't quite the all-time low price seen on the headphones, but it's still a solid discount if you've been waiting for something more notable to come along for the high-end AirPods.

Apple is rumored to be updating the AirPods Max sometime in 2024, and the new models should be getting a USB-C port and new color options. There is only one other AirPods deal happening right now on Amazon: you can get the the AirPods 2 for $79.99 ($49 off).

These are getting long in the tooth. They are a great product, even now, BUT, these have just crossed that threshold of "no longer buy" for anyone that cares about having new generations in the earlier part of the lifecycle vs. previous generations toward the end.

We know that it's inevitable that they will be updated this year. USB-C and probably a lot of audio enhancements too.

And, fingers crossed, $449 new instead of $549. They need that 10th gen iPad treatment.

It’s legitimately shocking how drastically over priced AirPods Max are. The quality of the sound they produce doesn’t warrant it. As far as the ANC goes, other companies have wireless sets that can match it now too. If you know anything about the headphone market you know that these are priced easily twice what they should be.
