Unwrap the Ultimate Father's Day Gift: AirPods MAX $100 off at Best Buy

Father’s Day is rapidly approaching, and if you’re still at a loss for how to celebrate your dad, your gift-giving quandary may have been solved. The Apple AirPods Max are $100 off at Best Buy right now – a sweet deal on one of the best audio adventures Apple has ever offered. So, let’s break it all down a bit more to understand why the AirPods Max may be your perfect Father’s Day choice.

The Appeal of the AirPods MAX

Superior Noise Cancellation Capabilities

For starters, it’s a master of noise cancellation, obscuring the drone of city life, the whine of jet engines in the cabin and the white noise of the office from your ears with AirPods Max’s Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) mode. Or if you’d rather stay aware of your surroundings, switching to transparency mode instantly opens up your listening experience from the inside of your headphones, without having to take them off.

Beyond Comfort

Not only are they stylish, but, thanks to that memory foam cushioning, they’re also really comfortable to wear. The ear cups and the headband are both generously padded and won’t feel tight, even if you’re wearing them for hours on end. And they look great, available in five colourways.

Aural Immersion with Spatial Audio

Apple’s Spatial Audio, which works with the AirPods Max if paired with compatible iPhones or iPads, provides a level of envelope that’s second only to having been present when the sound was being captured. Music and soundscape with which you engage seem to be in orbit around your head. They pivot with head movements to stay in lockstep with whatever your directed attention happens to be. If you can’t get to the venue, imagine having the virtual next best thing – in your ears.

Battery Life and Charging

Battery life was a concern, but you shouldn’t worry. With a full charge, the AirPods Max offers up to 20 hours of listening time with both ANC and Spatial Audio turned on. After just five minutes of charging, you get another 1.5 hours of playback time. And, the Smart Case not only protects your headphones when you travel, but also recharges them.

Alternatives and Recommendations

The AirPods Max get all the attention, but there are many more AirPods deals available – better for your budget, for different needs. From barely-there AirPods to AirPods Pro, the Apple range is larger than you may think.

Maximize the MAX Experience

While the sale price of the AirPods Max is a win in itself (you’re buying a pair of premium headphones at a discount), it’s just the beginning of the benefits. Besides the active noise cancelling, spatial audio, transparency mode and up to 20 hours of playback, they’re an ideal gift for Father’s Day because they take the pressure off holiday plans by providing a whole lot of entertainment at home.

Conclusion: Don't Miss Out

As headphone bargains go, it’s a good one on the Apple AirPods Max, whether it’s your Father’s Day present or, more likely, one for yourself. A lot of tech, a lot of style, a lot of sound for some big bucks, sliced. Don’t bite your... erm... knuckles, though, because – as with all these sorts of bargains – this one’s not going to last long.

More on MAX

To understand why this offer is great, or even just to understand the appeal of the AirPods Max, you have to grasp what Max is, what Apple has packed inside these headphones, and how it could be something ‘just like magic’. Max is the highest of highs, the locus, the point, the limit: the best that the people of Apple can do with their ear-delivering wireless audio contraptions. Max is the bespoke Matthew McConaughey-quality engineering behind the computer-aided noise cancellation to bury the din of the helicopter parents so that you can concentrate more, the spatial audio transports you to the stage at The Royal Albert Hall so you immerse more deeply, the care that Apple has taken to make them comfortable for four hours on end, the planning that has gone into cramming all that battery juice into something so tiny, the pleasurable engineering of the focusing array of the adaptive mic so those who want to speak to you don’t have to shout over the music in their ears. Max is the efficiency and elegance of the H1 chip powering these cans such that it can fit on something that can rest on your temples. Max is Apple’s ethic of continuously making better and better headphones even more affordable, with Best Buy’s timely sale.
