From an Amazon critical review:

"-Sound
So they don't fit well and ANC is balls. Could the sound save it perhaps? Will you weep in joy at the Apple engineering that made such beautiful vocals and trembling bass possible? No. I would call it average. SLIGHTLY better than the Airpod Pros. My V-Moda M-100's, almost a decade old, sh!t on these, spit in their face, curb stomp them, pick them up, then sh!t on them once more, all at half the price (and they straight KILL them once I connect them to my FiiO BTR5) all at half the price or so. Sound is okay, bass is lacking for me, volume is shockingly low. Just an overall disappointment."

The sound quality is good. Not crazy good like those apple reviewer make it out to be but compare this to my Schitt Stack + HD6xx, I like this better. However the practicality is bad because they are too big and not foldable to carry to the airplane. In term of comfort this is the reason why I could not keep these: after 20 minutes these hurt my head. Something is wrong with the clamp force or the cushion not being dense enough.
Overall good buy if it is $400 or less and fix the cushion so that it doesn't hurt user's head for long period of time.

Apple won't be able to sell these until they drop to $299. This is hilarious.

The bass on the AirPods max is the best part of its sound. It's quite dynamic and has a lot of lower presence, you can also change the tuning.

My main headphone rig is a pair of great $1400 planar dynamics. That pair is a bit more layered with better soundstage and imaging (they're open, of course), but the AirPods max are a nice tuning for most people and it can be adjusted based on preference.

Additionally, they have absolutely insane transparency and ANC modes combined with what I think is nice styling that doesn't look ridiculous in public unlike other headphones.

I work from home and the ANC combined with decent sound quality has me using them more often than my higher end pair that I love.

As for what I don't like.. I like a more flat tuning with a possible slight boost to the bass. They're not too bad, though. They get sweaty on my head and have just a slight amount more pressure than I'd prefer.

I doubt these will beat the SQ of Audeze mobius LDAC.

People don't buy these for sound quality. Would you rather sit in a coffeeshop and *be seen* by others while wearing Apple branded headphones with a $3500 MacBook on your lap as you work on a draft of the next greatest novel, or would you rather be seen with plebeian brands in public?
