Chapter in this post:
The Apple AirPods Max are impressively good over-ear headphones with the best ANC I've had on my ears so far. The usual price of almost 600 EUR is currently being discounted by Gravis by a full 26% as part of Black Week, so that the final price is 439 EUR. This is as cheap as you would otherwise only get used Apple headphones.
The deal with Gravis is unfortunately over, but just in case you still want to get the AirPods Max, I can help you this link to Idealo recommend. So you can find the cheapest offers on the net. I got the AirPods Max over 170 euros cheaper this way.
The only color options for Gravis are currently the green and pink versions. I suppose these are the worst models to sell for. But I could make friends with the green because it is not very intrusive.
I had the AirPods Max in the test with me for the last few weeks and can already say that the headphones have convinced me very much. The sound is great and the ANC is better than any other headphone I've tested so far. The price alone still scares me off, but here the Gravis offer might help one or the other to buy the over-ear headphones as an early Christmas present for themselves.
What you shouldn't forget: The Apple W1 chip, which you normally only find in Beats headphones, makes the Apple AirPods Max extremely comfortable in everyday life. I use MacBook Pro, iPad and iPhone constantly in alternation and the AirPods Max switch back and forth reasonably intelligently.
Every now and then there are "incorrect switching" because some system sound on the Mac causes the AirPods Max to switch to the Mac instead of leaving it on the iPad while filming, but this happens relatively rarely. The gain in comfort is definitely there and I don't really want to use headphones without this intelligent switching.
