How about some seasonal cheer courtesy of Apple and Amazon? The excellent AirPods Max wireless headphones are down to what we think is their lowest ever price, from £549 to just £399 (opens in new tab). That's even better than the price we spied earlier this week.
The best deal is on the Silver pair, but the Green colourway is only £5 more. The Blue, Space Gray and Pink versions are £449, which is around the figure the AirPods Max are typically available for these days.
For the uninitiated, the AirPods Max sit at the top of Apple's headphone range, a pair of superb noise-cancelling, wireless over-ears that deliver class-leading sound to fully justify their lofty price, as well as a host of clever Apple features for iPhone owners. We gave them the full five stars in our AirPods Max review.
Today's best AirPods Max deal
AirPods Max (Silver)
£549 £399 at Amazon (save £150) (opens in new tab)
The AirPods Max are in stock on Amazon right now – and you can make a saving! The biggest is on the Silver colour, but there is also money off the Green finish too.
Sonically speaking, these are hands-down the best wireless noise-cancellers you can buy, and they marry that superb sound quality with excellent noise-cancelling, the uniquely cinematic spatial audio experience, and the kind of build quality you'd expect from Apple.
These will naturally appeal more to an iOS user, and disappointingly they don't support Apple Music's Hi-Res Lossless Audio tier, but if that doesn't phase you then you won't find yourself disappointed.
There’s no denying that they cost a lot more than typical products in this class – even with this £150 discount – but, if sound quality is king, there’s equally no denying that they’re worth it.
