AirPods Max Over-Ear Headphones Launch Date Announced in India as Dec 15

Here’s some great news for the hardcore Apple fanatics: the all-new much-awaited AirPods Max over-ear headphones launch date is officially announced India as Dec 15, which were doing rounds on the Internet as the rumored  ‘AirPods Studio’.

They come in 5 vibrant colors viz Blue, Pink, Silver, Green & Grey, and you can check them out on Apple India’s official website.

AirPods Max Over-Ear Headphones Price in India

Priced exorbitantly at Rs 59,900, the Airpods Max are definitely aimed at the classes, not the masses, and once again they carry a much higher price tag in India, as opposed to the global price point of $549, which doesn’t even translate to Rs 40,000.

Globally, the AirPods Max Pro wireless headphones are priced at $549, which works out to just under Rs. 40,500. 

AirPods Max Pro Features & Specs

They come packed inside a special “smart” case with a flap-open cover, and USB-C cable charger, and claim to deliver high-fidelity audio and great noise-canceling experience, and fit a bigger range of head sizes.

They’re equipped with the H1 chip, and 40mm dynamic drivers, loaded with a total of 9 microphones, a single-button press Transparency mode, and Bluetooth v5 connectivity.

The AirPods Max boasts of sensing head movement and optimising sound real-time using gyroscope sensors & accelerometer. They’re also smart enough to detect when you remove them from your ears, thanks to the position and optical sensors.

Furthermore, they come loaded with adaptive EQ that helps optimise sound levels for enjoying a wide range of music genres.

The most impressive bit is that they deliver up to 1.5 hours of music time with a just 5 minutes charge, and up to a whopping 20 hours of usage time within one charge, which is something rare.

The Bottom-Line

Apple has definitely created another magical product claiming to provide breakthrough listening experience with Active Noise Cancellation, Adaptive EQ, spatial audio, and Transparency mode, but the pricing point is quite steep for Indian markets at Rs 59,990.

However, a lot of critics said the same about the iPod then the iPhone then Macbook Pro, and a lot of Apple devices, including the new iPhone 12 Pro, which doesn’t even come with a charger, and costs well over Rs 1.3 lakhs!

While Apple has just dropped a bomb with AirPods Max Over-Ear headphones launch date Announcement, we’re still awestruck with its pricing point for India, and whether it’d become yet another success story like the Airpods, who have been constantly creating history, only time can tell.

But, what we DO KNOW is that Apple would definitely ship out thousands (if not lakhs) of units of the brand-new AirPods Max Over-Ear Headphones, starting Dec 15, 2020 as per their official press release.

Apple iPhone X to See a Price Cut, whereas Apple iPad to Remain at $329

Apple unveiled a new iPad on Tuesday. This has been priced at $329 and it looks similar to the model, which was released last year. The latest version comes with power-packed features and stylus is the best add-on for it.

The size of the new iPad is around 9.7 inches, which is 5-10% more than the current screen size of Apple tab. This is the first iPad from Apple, which is pocket-friendly. On the other hand, RBC Capital market analyst conducted his research and he expects the price of the new iPhone X to drop by $100. Currently, the phone’s price starts at $999 and now the base price is expected to start from $899.

Rumors also state that Apple is going to produce more affordable Macbook Air, which would be way cheaper than the current Macbook priced at $999. Finally, the latest Airpods from Apple are competing with Bose, Jabra and Jaybird headphones both in terms of price and quality.

Trade analysts say that the reason behind Apple reducing the prices of its products is to attract new customers towards them and help the company maintain its leadership in the market. When it comes to charging premium, Apple can go too far. iPhone X is one such example.

An analyst at Lopez Research said that Apple charges premium during the launch of the product, drains all the profits, and finally reduces the prices to make sure that they maintain good share over the market.

Currently, the company is targeting the education sector as well as producing devices only keeping them in mind. Just like Chromebook, even Apple plans to launch affordable products for school children and it is going to come up with a new product called “Apple School Manager”, which helps teachers to monitor their students using Apple IDs.
