Apple unveils holiday-ready AirPods Max with brand new Soulwax cut, ‘Empty Dancefloor’
Apple hits the holiday market hard, unveiling the newest model of AirPods , the over-ear Max, just in the nick of time for this year’s gift giving season. Sporting a wireless and truly sleek retro-inspired design, Apple’s new premier line of headphones will be hitting stores on December 15 and comes with a price tag of $550 per unit.
Reviews on the new cans are still out, but Apple purports that they’ll deliver high-fidelity audio among an Adaptive EQ, Active Noise Cancellation, and spatial audio. While the price for the AirPods Max is a bit hefty among competition in its class, Apple often justifies this among their products’ users with their high personal standard, generally reliable connectivity, and attractive designs for its new mainline products. Other notable features for the AirPods Max include positional sensors that automatically detect when the headphones are being worn, a hearty battery life of up to 20 hours, and a transparency mode that dims the noise cancellation so listeners can hear the environment around them.
The new tech was introduced in a visual feature set to a brand new piece from Soulwax titled, “Empty Dancefloor.” Much like the headphones’ timeless design, David and Stephen Dewaele’s venerated modern-retro sound serves as the perfect backdrop for Apple’s latest delivery.
