It turns out that Apple still has a big hardware announcement before the end of 2020: after several months of rumors, Apple today released its own ear noise-canceling headphones. They are called Airboats Max, And they come with the premium design expected from the primary Apple headphones. They come with a very premium price of $ 549 and are set to go on sale on December 15th. Bookings start today.
The Airboat Max comes in five colors: space gray, silver, sky blue, green and pink. They feature what Apple calls the “custom sound design” with the 40mm driver system, which offers “rich, deep bass, precise intermediate limits and a smooth, clean high-frequency extension so every note can be heard.” Apple has introduced a number of features that were first introduced in the Airports lineup, such as adaptive EQ, transparency mode, spatial audio and audio sharing. There’s even an element from the Apple Watch – the digital crown – that led to these headphones. Apple claims that it “provides precise volume control and the ability to enable or disable audio, avoid tracks, answer or terminate phone calls, and enable SRI.” There is also a separate “noise control” button to switch between noise cancellation and transparency modes.
In terms of design, what Apple says is:
The breathable knitted canopy spread over the headband is made to distribute the weight and reduce the pressure on the head. The steel head band frame offers strength, flexibility and comfort for a variety of head shapes and sizes. The telescopic headband arms are stretched evenly and are in place to maintain the desired fit.
Each ear cup is connected to the headset by a revolutionary mechanism that balances and distributes the pressure of the ear cup, allowing it to be highlighted and rotated independently according to the unique definitions of a user’s head.
None of them seem particularly “revolutionary” when stacked next to canceling headphones, but memory foam ear cushions should provide good comfort. They are removable and attached via magnets so replacing them will not be too complicated. The Airboat Max charges 20 hours of battery life and Apple’s Lightning Connect – not USB-C. (Apple is sold separately $ 35 lamp to 3.5mm cable To listen to the wire.) If you are in a hurry, the five minute charge gives you 90 minutes of playback time. Headphones automatically pause audio when it is removed from your ears and turn it back on when you turn it on again.
This “smart case” for the Airboat Mac automatically lowers:
Like the approaches of Bose, Sony, and others, Apple’s noise-canceling system uses six microphones to control external noise, making it more resistant to external noise. The two mics measure inwardly facing the things you ask for to cancel out extra distractions. Apple adds that the Airboat Max works well for voice calls (even in airy conditions) with their built-in flashing mics.
With premium headphones in place, Apple will be able to compete directly with brands such as Bose, Sony, Sennheiser, AKG, Powers and Wilkins, with years of experience and a long list of products in between. Apple is more expensive than all of them, but the company is accelerating the pace of Airboats and Airboats Pro, which dominates the real wireless earbuds market.
Automatic Device Switching – Apple has taken advantage of the impressive synergy between its hardware by introducing features such as Airboats Max, Airboats and select Beats products, which can be switched between the iPhone, Mac and iPod based on anything you currently use – and, in the case of the Airports Mac and Pro, iPhone The so-called spatial audio that reflects the high-speed surround sound experience when watching movies and TV shows.
Apple also sells high-end headphones including the Beats brand Solo Pro and Studio 3 Wireless, both of which have active noise cancellation. Most recently, Beats has shown renewed interest in appealing to Android device owners as Apple firmly embraces consumers who have invested in its ecosystem; New Flex beats earrings Have a USB-C connector instead of Apple’s Privacy Lightning port.
It is unusually late in the year for Apple to launch new products in early December. Today’s news was Soaked last week Macroemers, Announced that Apple had sent a memo to authorized service providers regarding instant changes in Apple Care. In the days that followed, long-working headphones were often seen as a candidate.
