Rumored for the longest time (most often under the AirPods Studio name), Apple's high-end over-ear wireless headphones finally broke cover (as the AirPods Max) near the end of last year, keeping many of its early adopters waiting for their deliveries for several more months.
That's obviously no longer the case, and even better, it's now incredibly easy to score these bad boys at a decent discount. You just have to visit Amazon and choose from a grand total of four different paint jobs before ordering Cupertino's Sony and Bose-rivaling noise-cancelling cans.
Naturally, we're not talking about some life-altering discount of sorts here, but it's definitely better to save 30 bucks than... nothing. The problem is the AirPods Max have been terribly overpriced right off the bat, fetching $550 in five color options, so you're barely looking at shaving 5 percent off that MSRP at the time of this writing.

The answer is "probably not" for many people, but if you're deep into the Apple ecosystem already, it might actually feel like you don't have a solid alternative to quickly and smoothly connect to your iPhone, iPad, and MacBook, not to mention effortlessly switch between the three.
Besides, it's not like you genuinely expect to see the AirPods Max sold at $100 or $150 off list as early as next month, right? Because if you do, you're in for a rude awakening.
