I did it. I caved and bought a pair of Sky Blue AirPods Max off eBay. I had to pay a 30% markup plus international shipping, but they’ll be arriving in a few days instead of in a few months. The more I read about them, the more I can’t wait to listen to them. Was it a stupid decision to buy them from eBay?

Practically, yes. Emotionally, no.

Stay tuned for more thoughts on AirPods Max over the next few weeks. I plan on doing thorough sound quality comparisons with the headphones below.

  • Sennheiser HD 600
  • Focal Utopia
  • Shure KSE1200
  • AudioQuest NightHawk
  • Shure SE846
  • Sennheiser HD 25

Delivery is scheduled for December 24 – just in time for Christmas.
