It works by following how you move your head, placing sound all around you so it feels far more immersive than before. The Apple AirPods (3rd Generation) also have adaptive EQ, which means that music is automatically tuned to the shape of your ear so you get a far more personal experience. Thanks to an all-new contoured design, they slip into your ears better than before too. Battery life is also better with up to six hours of listening time with one charge, while the charging case increases that to up to 30 hours, meaning you won’t need to find a power source that often.

Why Buy

  • Active noise cancellation
  • Spatial audio
  • Adaptive EQ
  • Choice of silicone tips

One of the highlights of the Apple Memorial Day sale are the Apple AirPods Pro. They offer pretty much everything you could need from earphones. The best feature is the active noise cancellation (ANC), which makes these some of the best wireless earbuds around. Through the feature, you can block outside noise, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in what you’re listening to. A transparency mode means any time you need to return to the world, you can do so by switching over to that mode to take in what’s going on around you. Besides those features, the Apple AirPods Pro also have spatial audio features and adaptive EQ so you get more immersive music that also feels more personal to how you listen. A choice of soft, tapered silicone tips help you find the right fit for your ears too, ensuring these are well-designed for most people.

Why Buy

  • Apple-designed dynamic driver
  • Active noise cancellation
  • Spatial audio
  • Incredibly comfortable

The Apple AirPods Max are a remarkable premium pair of headphones. They offer best in-class ANC, meaning they easily ride high among the best noise-canceling headphones. When you need to switch over to transparency mode to hear something, they do a great job here, too. However, it’s the fantastic sound quality courtesy of an Apple-designed dynamic driver that really stands out. Providing high-fidelity audio, it’s further helped by spatial audio that fully immerses you in the experience. You’ll truly feel like you’re at a concert rather than listening in. Incredibly comfy to wear thanks to a knit-mesh canopy and memory foam ear cushions, the Apple AirPods Max are easy to wear for up to their 20 hours of battery life. These are a truly good investment if you can afford them.
