Apple has just announced the release of their first ever over-ear headphone, the AirPods Max, and it is worth over N250,000.
They’ll be available to buy from December 14 (though you can preorder them now), and you will spend $549 to get one.
The release of the Apple AirPods Max comes after months of speculation regarding potential Apple over-ear headphones, once thought to be called the AirPods Studio.
At N250,000 the Apple AirPods Max certainly represents the most high-profile headphone launch in some time, and many will be eager to see whether they can meet the high standards Apple’s other gear aspires to.
“AirPods are the most popular headphones in the world, beloved for their effortless setup, incredible sound quality, and iconic design. With AirPods Max, we are bringing that magical AirPods experience to a stunning over-ear design with high-fidelity audio,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
“The custom acoustic design, combined with powerful H1 chips, and advanced software enable AirPods Max to use computational audio to wirelessly deliver the ultimate personal listening experience.”
