Apple is now offering its first-ever over-ear headset, the AirPods Max, which cost a small fortune but are exceptionally well crafted and work very well. The question is, are there cheaper headphones with the same quality as the Apple AirPods Max?

The answer is yes. Here are five headphones you should look into if you don’t want to spend vast amounts on listening equipment. Click on the images to buy.


Sony WH-1000XM4
Sony’s premium wireless over-ear headset has various features, many of which can be configured with the accompanying smartphone app. They also have extended battery life and advanced noise cancellation – just what you need for great sound on the go.


Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless
Sennheiser’s reputation for high sound quality is well-deserved. These good-looking over-ear headphones feel well-constructed and have a voice-control feature if you prefer not to fiddle with tiny buttons.


JBL Live 650BTNC
JBL Live 650BTNC headphones are much cheaper than the Sony and Sennheiser’s models but don’t knock them off as a contender just yet. They have the battery life and noise cancellation credentials to compete with more expensive models.


Sony WH-1000XM3
These are very high quality. They’re superbly comfortable, and the battery lasts more than 27 hours. They fold flat and have a detachable charging cord if you forgot to charge them.


AKG N60NC Wireless
Good quality wireless headphones at an affordable price. Nice, retro-looking too. Excellent active noise cancelling for blocking out unwanted background noise.

Why can’t I buy Apple Airpods Max?
According to media reports, Apple has had to hire private planes and increase its cargo ship usage in order to deal with the logistical nightmare that the pandemic has caused.

Apple has been experiencing stock shortages this year, and it is working to fix the problem by throwing money at it. According to a report from The Information, Apple has begun sending some products via slower cargo ships in order to free up space on faster planes for time-sensitive products, like brand new iPhones.
