Apple's AirPods Max are the latest in the company's AirPods family of wireless headphones. But they mark quite a departure from previous models in the line-up – unlike the AirPods and AirPods Pro, they're over-ear headphones rather than earbuds. That means a bulkier design but also a significantly better sound.
But, in typical Apple style, it has delivered on its promise, delivering blisteringly good sound quality in a premium package with no design stones left unturned. In our opinion, they're worth every penny, boasting sound quality usually only seen in proper hi-fi-grade headphones.
Unsurprisingly, they're highly sought after, which means some stock shortages are inevitable. On this page, we'll show you where to find yourself a pair so you don't miss out on the audio fun. And the good news is there should be some fresh stock available in March...
AirPods Max UK stock availability
Supplies are currently a little thin on the ground in the UK, with Currys PC World the only retailer with stock at time of writing.

AirPods Max US stock availability
There is a little more availability in the US, though it might depend on your location and will depend on which colour you want to buy. It seems like the pink model is the most available option, which we might reasonably assume means it's the least popular.

- Best Buy: order today, get it in 2-3 weeks (depending on colour)

- JB Hi-Fi: currently in stock
