iFixit has laid their hands on Apple’s AirPods Max headphones and disassembled them to their smallest component.

Unlike Apple’s other headphone models, iFixit believes that AirPods Max are relatively easy to repair and give the headphones a 6 on their ten-point repair scale. Apple’s other headphone models, AirPods, AirPods 2 and AirPods Pro, have previously received a 0 in repair rating from iFixit, something you can read more about in the linked articles below.

iFixit has also compared AirPods Max with Bose NC 700 and Sony WH-1000XM4 and of these three, AirPods Max seems to be the clear winner. iFixit states:

“Sony and Bose both charge less, but internally, the AirPods Max’s obsessive craftsmanship makes those other extremely capable devices look like toys by comparison.”
