The best AirPods Max alternatives in 2021

The best AirPods Max alternatives haven’t necessarily been designed to take on Apple’s first over-ear headphones specifically, but do manage to deliver similarly high standards of sound quality and features. Best of all, they all cost less than the AirPods Max and its towering $549 MSRP.

While spending this much will get you a very good pair of Apple headphones, it does have its limits, and won’t support Apple Music lossless even in wired mode. By shopping smart you can find a pair that’s not just cheaper, but potentially more practical and longer-lasting; an over-ear equivalent to the in-ear best Apple AirPods alternatives. So, get ready to start saving by reading our picks of the best AirPods Max alternatives.
