Forget AirPods Max, everyone’s talking about Apple’s new Smart Case

When Apple titled last month's M1 Mac event 'One more thing', you'd be forgiven for thinking the company would only be announcing, you know, one more thing. As it happens, it had one more one more thing up its sleeve: AirPods Max, revealed via a press release today.

The larger, over-ear headphones have been rumoured for a while. Featuring wireless connectivity, spatial audio and Apple's H1 chip, AirPods Max are available on 15 December – for a very (very) high price. At $549/£549, we certainly hope they'll prove to be an investment sound enough for our best wireless headphones list.
