Putting the Noise Cancellation on Apple’s AirPods Max Through the Wringer

AirPods Max In Case

I’ve had the AirPods Max for over a month now and I find myself drawn to using them more and more the longer I have them. It isn’t just for the sound quality, either. One of the biggest reasons why is the superb Active Noise Cancellation they offer.

AirPods Max Earcup Covers: I Didn’t Know I Needed Them Until I Saw Them

AirPods Max Cover

I was searching for an Apple Lightning to 3.5 mm Audio Jack cable for my AirPods Max on Amazon a few days ago when I started coming across several of a certain new accessory- silicone earcup covers. Considering how aluminum can scratch in the right (or wrong) circumstances, I figured  I would pick up a pair and try them out.

Living with Apple’s AirPods Max: One Month in and Still Going Strong

AirPods Max

When I purchased the AirPods Max at launch, I was unsure if I would hang onto them past Apple’s Holiday season return window. While the feature set was impressive and I had a feeling the sound quality would impress, the price tag was still quite hard to swallow.

The Condensation Issue with Apple’s AirPods Max is Real

AirPods Max Flat

After reading some of the early reports of AirPods Max users noticing condensation inside the earcups under the memory foam ear cushions, I have been keeping an eye on mine. After two recent two hour or longer sessions using them, I can confirm that I have found small amounts of condensation inside of mine, as well. This definitely isn’t a fictitious issue.

This problem is interesting to me because I work in Commercial and Industrial HVAC, Energy Management and Monitoring and Systems Integration. The engine that’s driving this problem is right in my wheelhouse, which is a big reason why I decided to write about it.

Living with the AirPods Max: Apple’s New Cans Continue to Impress

AirPods Max Flat

After a couple of days of testing the AirPods Max, I have to say I’m very impressed. I focused on music on day one, but I’ve been spending more time watching movies and listening to podcasts over the last two.

Apple’s AirPods Max Have Arrived!!

AirPods Max

I usually work later, but today I got to come home on time and was at the door when the FedEx guy pulled up to deliver my new AirPods Max. I’m not usually much of an unboxing guy, but I thought I would snap a few picks of this brand new Apple product to share, along with a few very early thoughts. Continue reading

So Who’s Laying Out a Cool $550 for Apple’s New AirPods Max Headphones?

AirPods Max

 

I’ve been looking forward to the announcement of the AirPods Max, formerly rumored to be called the AirPods Studio, since the rumors of them started rolling over a year ago. I kept track of all the reports and patent filings and approvals. I’ve paid attention as features and pricing have been discussed. I was let down when the stories of production delays came up a couple of months ago and definitely got my hopes up a few days ago when it looked like Apple got it together and was ready to release.

New Patent Filings Show Apple Going All-Out With Their Coming AirPods Studio Headphones

AirPods Studio Patent

It seems that Apple has been hard at working at making a better set of high-end over the ear headphones. I figured we would just get a souped-up pair of Beat Studio cans with the latest Apple H1 chip, but it looks like Apple is aiming a lot higher with the AirPods Studios that should be released soon. A series patents that were filed back in May but were published today, reveal some of what they have been up to on the design side.

AirPods Optimized Charging

Looks Like Optimized Battery Charging for AirPods is Part of Apple’s iOS 14 Beta 1

AirPods Optimized Charging

I finally pulled the trigger yesterday and upgraded to the beta version of iOS 14. I heard from enough people that the sometimes buggy first developer beta was pretty stable this year. I can say the same so far based on one day of use.. It feels much more like iOS 12 than 13 so far. It didn’t even take that much of a toll on my battery life today, which is definitely rare for a first dev beta.

There is a New Firmware For AirPods Pro, But it Wasn’t a Fix For Me

AirPods Pro

Apple released a new firmware version for AirPods Pro this week. They are now at 2D27, up from version 2D15. The new features for AirPods and AirPods Pro, which I covered yesterday, don’t seem to be a part of this new firmware, so it is likely another attempt to fix issues with Active Noise Cancelling and popping noises.
