Where to buy Apple AirPods Max: latest stock and availability

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.

It also means a higher price tag. At £549 ($549, AU$899), the AirPods Max are much more expensive than even high-end rivals such as the Sony WH-1000XM4 and Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700

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.

  • Apple: order today, delivers from 16th March (depending on colour)
  • Amazon: order today, delivers from 18th March (space grey model)
  • Best Buy: order today, get it in 2-3 weeks (depending on colour)
  • Target: order today, get it by 5th March (certain stores only)
  • Newegg: out of stock

AirPods Max Australia stock availability

If you're shopping for a pair in Australia, again, you might be in for a wait...
