• Apple AirPods Max: was £549, now £399 at Appliances Direct

In our AirPods Max review we said that they were an “incredible piece of engineering” but “it’s just a shame that the cost will put them out of reach for so many.” I’ll be honest, I’m really tempted. They're so good, but I couldn't justify the price to myself in the past – but with nearly 30% off, the audiophile devil on my shoulder is being very persuasive indeed.

If you’re not familiar with the AirPods Max, they’re arguably the best sounding and most comfortable wireless headphones you can buy – and Apple’s integration with your other Apple kit is absolutely superb. The noise cancelling is fantastic, the sound is beautifully open and natural, and the only downside is that they’re very expensive – except now they’re considerably less so. 

This is one of the best Apple AirPods Black Friday deals we’re likely to see, so if you’ve been havering about getting these headphones this would be a really good time to take your audio to the Max.
