OW Link - price beat in-store or call 1300 OFFICE free shipping
I thought OW doesn’t price match/beat ebay deals or any online deals requiring a coupon code. Or does YMMV?
they dont, above deal is david jones, im just mentioning it may be cheaper on eBay with the 15/17% off sale so best to wait until 10am
I just ordered with OfficeWorks by calling them. It was amazingly straightforward process.
You might want to edit the content of your post. While the link on the right is for DJ, having a link to eBay in the content of the post makes it look dodgy. Decent find
lol why dodgy? im giving people a heads up to wait until 10am as it may be cheaperto buy through eBay
might just want to note that it's a seperate deal option. Otherwise it looks more like you're trying to redirect to eBay pretending it's the DJ eBay store, which doesn't exist.
Just a formatting thing!
removed now, eBay deal is a no go
@RogueWolf: Classic ebay "deal".
I would take the AirPod Pros + Sony XM4s over the AirPods max. The package is cheaper, and you get more use cases (sometimes wearing headphones is inconvenient, so wear the Pros).
You just don't get Airpods max then.
I'm pretty sure whoever buys these is willing to fork out for what exactly they are.
An overpriced Apple product that is not proportionately better given its cost? Correct.
Overpriced for you, sure. Doesn’t mean the value isn’t there for others.
@Tacosaurus Rex: Have you used the Max? They're not 3x better than the XM4s at 3x the cost (assuming the current deal on the Max and the 'seconds' price for the XM4s). I would say they're slightly better.
@lucycat09: A porsche 918 is not 5x faster than a porsche 911 but it costs 5x as much. People who buy these aren’t just forking out the money for utility.
@turkz1: Lets not insult porsche and its engineering by bringing an anology with pricing of airpods max
Damn @lucycat09 - that's exactly the path im going down. Bought the XM4s recently - amazing audio. But also want the AirPod Pros for cardio exercising
I am happy with the soundpeats inear one, only $4x, lol
@ jasecutler. The Pros and XM3s are my current setup. I highly recommend it.
@RogueWolf No luck so far with any of the eBay listings for the APM.
Looks like that's the wrong code. Please double-check and try again.
Looks like that's the wrong code. Please double-check and try again.
Do I need to be an eBay Plus member first?
no it's not a sitewide deal, so cheaper through this deal
Cool. I see you have edited the description accordingly.
Anyone has these AirPods max ? Just wondering how they are ?
I have been using them for almost a month now. No comparison what so ever to XM4's or Bose 700 be it audio eq, the best I have heard in a bluetooth headphone, or noise cancellation. I dont even hear some of the instruments while hearing the same song via my airpods pro's. They are heavy though and although perfectly fine when sitting still because the weight is distributed well more so than even Bose 700 as they clamp really hard, you do feel the inertia while moving.
I've listened to most high-end BT headphones, including the XM4, Bose 700, B&W PX7 and Sennheiser Momentum 3. The only ones that've I found highly enjoyable for music listening are the Sennheisers. Can anyone comment on who the AirPods Max compare with Momentums, especially given that the Max has been compared somewhat favourably to the HD6XX?
I got them back in February. Use them a lot on Domestic flights. I'm very happy with them but the price is hard to swallow. If you're in the Apple ecosystem it makes sense.
I own both the Airpod Max and Sony XM4.
Airpod Max sounds better than the XM4, wider sound stage, much more details (different audio from 360 directions). XM4 sound "boomy" (too much bass) and no sound stage at all (all audio group together in the middle).
If you have an iphone, these headphone integrated seamlessly too, i.e. Siri, switch audio automatically from iphone to ipad / Macbook etc.
The only downside I find is they are heavy and pricey so not for everyone.
Also a far nicer finish/build quality. I have both, and the APMs are next level in comparison. I’ll probably replace my AirPods Pro with the next Powerbeats release as I only use them for gym now and the APMs for everything else.
Good deal, if you PB OW, about $4.35 cheaper than recent ebay deal.
Who put these products online? "Maxx"?
TK Maxx airpods! Reduced 60% but only available in beige.
Was going to say the same thing
I wander how much these cost to make and how much profit they make
factor in all the R and D they did as well. From things I have read on the inter webs, they are a very good set of headphones.
The cost of manufacture is not the sole cost born by a company, you do realise that?
If it costs $1 in raw materials to make it, that doesn't mean the rest of the revenue is gravy.
If you’re going to wander, why not run instead.
Well, Apple made 60Billion profit last year alone. I’m guessing that their R&D doesn’t make too big a dent in the finances.
You need to go to uni or do a course or something bro. Maybe start with a business.
How much do you think it costs Apple in Sydney to have the stores in CBD Chatswood and Miranda for example, available with 40+ staff to service your returns, service your questions and do all the value add things that Apple gives like no hassle returns?
It’s better to be quiet and assumed stupid then open your mouth and remove all doubt!
Einstein, if you read my post, it states the profit Apple made last year…….profit. That means AFTER they’ve paid for staff, stores, etc.
How stupid are you?
You need to attend school or educate yourself.
This is more expensive than my phone. Is it just me or the cost of graphics cards and ear phones sky rocketed over the years. WTF?
Just Apple being Apple seeing how much they can get away with, Sony/Bose around $300 would be more then good enough for most
I bought Bose sound cancelling ones for $350 and thought that was HIDEOUSLY expensive at the time. At least I can just replace the batteries in them or use them without batteries. It's not been 7 years. Once I get to 15, I would happy with the value I got.
These won't last anywhere near that before batteries fail and another hideously expensive fix.
When you have a chip in everything you bring the price up I suppose.
I prefer my Sony XBA-3; simple, easy to drive and well built. And because it doesn't have a battery, I never have to worry about having to throw it out because the battery is dead.
They have a chip on their shoulder that's for sure. These qualcomm 3040 or whatever are dirt cheap.
Wonder it has Qualcomm 3056 though. That would be nice but not worth this much.
Galaxy Note10+ 256GB just $649 (I bought it for $1700 on 3yr installments & came with excellent AKG headphones worth as the above) & it's the Swiss knife of phones (I use 95% of its features). The world is getting crazy (consumerism).
Wow such cheap!
Truly an oz bargain!
All Apple does these days is come up with outrageous pricing for anything they produce just to see if the sheep will still happily pay for it.
Good story pal
glad you enjoyed it pal
Truth hurts pal. But stories are fiction what keejoonc said is fact.
To be completely fair at least this time the product is actually markedly better than its vastly cheaper alternatives
As an investor in Apple shares, I am happy the sheep continues to happily pay for Apple products. Please buy more.
Don't blame me, I am just following the time honoured adage,"During a gold rush, sell shovels."
sorry… what is the gold rush and what is the shovel you're selling in this scenario?
Did you go and sell more drugs when there was a drugs epidemic? Or did you try to sell toilet paper too during COVID last year?
Apple does come out with a lot of good stuff like the m1 macbooks air, but some things are quite not so consumer friendly
I just lost 5 minutes of my life trying to work out what Airpods MAXX are….couldnt find MAXX. They are called a pod but they are over ears? WTF? I give up, Apple are a strange bunch. So confused.
They’re called the AirPods Max (David jones have misspelled them as AirPods Maxx).
They did that on purpose so you can't PB at OW!
You can, I just did
@Jozz: It was just a joke, calm down lol
Sorry, jokes are not allowed on OzBargain.
is it a typo hahaha holy crap
I feel this post in incongruent with the ozbargain spirit lol
It's like putting a luxury yacht that's for sale here 😂
The spirit seems to be buy everything that's advertised; whether you need it or not. The 'bargain' aspect is a joke when many things are only $5 off.
nahh the beats earbuds from JB deal few days ago was a total banger! i love them great buy. 350 from apple, 99 from jb.
And so all the Tesla posts. Put one and it will be on the front page.
Yeah man, I'd rather have plastic containers from Woolies to be on the front page. $1 off.
Not sure what incongruent means. Can’t spell to look it up on google either. No comprehend.
I thought that there was an extra 0 in the price?
I like some of apple's stuff, but this feels like Malibu Stacy with NEW HAT.
people buy this garbage? no wonder people cant afford houses.. too busy buying Apple inflated chinese garbage and eating smashed avo
Yep like the ones at work that ask every second whether it’s pay week because they need money in the bank but still walk around with a new 2k iphone12 Pro Max, because all their friends have one.
I know that person. Idiot with a 2k iphone! Drives a $50k Mazda and lives in a dump that they rent. Allergic to avo though.
Uhmmm I use iphone 12 pro max (~1.8k), drive a mazda 3 (2019 model (~40k), eat avo everyday, have 2 houses…. not sure if i’m an idiot or not 🥲🥲🥲
Lol @ smashed avo
Cant afford houses? are you sure you live in Australia because houses are more inflated than these headphones
Wow, I hope people realise how good the alternative headphones are that you can get for this sort of money.
You talk big. So, please tell us about the "alternative headphones that you can get for this sort of money".
Literally any other. Get 5 pairs.
No, they are actually better than the XM4. Noise cancelling is on par but for me sound quality was better. And I am an Apple hater and its hurts me to say it….
But I'd still buy the XM4, can't justify the price difference for a slightly better headphone. Around the same price I would buy them over XM4 or Bose.
Whoever decided that the XM4 were the gold standard for BT headphone audio quality?? Great ANC for sure, but these aren't even the best sounding Sony headphones. And why would you pay $750 for the Airpod Max when you can get Sennheiser Momentum 3 for $300 - $450?
edit. never mind, data WAS wrong
Great timing thanks
Here to see Apple hating comments, not disappointed
Ah good stuff, will add one so. Stupid price for such things but to be expected as it's Apple up to their usual silly over pricing. They know that the Fan Boys will pay so why not is what I say :-)
I think they should make it $2k. Just for kicks and gigglees.
This headphone is perfect when mowing the lawn
Come on man. A man with $1000 headphones should not be mowing the lawn.
How does it compare to
Main difference is that those are only avail online where as the Apple ones can be purchased instore. This makes the Apples one a tad more expensive being bricks and mortar :-)
jb hi fi in Pitt st would not want to swap colours
