Apple deals are always worth it, and this one is just in time for Father’s Day! Right now you can get the Apple AirPods Max at Best Buy for $450. That’s a $100 discount from the headset’s $550 retail price, and we rarely see these cans on sale. If you’re looking for headphone deals, this is one of the best you’re going to find.

Why you should buy the AirPods Max

The AirPods Max come in five different colors and are among the best noise-canceling headphones we’ve ever tested. These sleek-looking products place as much value on cosmetics as they do on performance. Thanks to memory foam cushioning on the ear cups and a padded headband, you can wear the Max for long periods of time without experiencing discomfort. If you like to listen to music and podcasts throughout the workday, then Apple is the place for you.

Speaking of which, Max’s ANC results are absolutely insane! Whether you’re trying to block out office chatter, airplane noise, or New York traffic, the AirPods Max are designed to sharpen and neutralize the unwanted sounds around you. But you can just as easily take advantage of the world-class transparency mode, which amplifies the sounds in your listening room.

As for the battery, you can get around 20 hours of playback with ANC and Spatial Audio enabled. And just five minutes of charging adds 1.5 hours of extra listening time to the AirPods Max! The included Smart Case is a godsend for traveling and provides both protection and charging for the headphones.

We mentioned spatial audio. That’s Apple’s head-tracking technology, and the AirPods Max are one of the best ways to experience it. You’ll need an iPhone or iPad, and an app that supports spatial audio features, but it’s well worth the immersive experience. Spatial audio gives you the feeling that the music is surrounding you, and as you turn your head, the notes adapt.

We’ve rarely seen the AirPods Max on sale, so this $100 discount isn’t a deal to put off. And if that $450 price is still too high, check out some of the other AirPods deals we dug up!
