It has been suggested that Apple AirPods Max headphones are useful for misophonia sufferers because of the outstanding noise canceling features!
AirPods Max have industry-leading Active Noise Cancellation which makes them possibly useful for Misophonia sufferers. To cancel unwanted external sound, AirPods Max use a total of six outward-facing microphones to detect noise in your environment, and two inward-facing microphones to measure what you’re hearing.
By tapping into each ear’s chip’s 10 audio cores, computational audio helps block outside noise, adapts audio to the fit and seal of your ear cushions.
Press the noise control button to switch to Transparency mode, which lets outside sound in so you can interact naturally with your surroundings. This feature uses the external microphones to amplify external sounds in the useful voice band, instead of cancelling them out. Instead of lowering the volume of your music so you can hear what’s going on, it amplifies the microphones to match what you’re listening to.
Five colors to choose from.
- Up to 20 hours of listening time on a single charge with Active Noise Cancellation or Transparency mode enabled
- Up to 20 hours of movie playback on a single charge with spatial audio on
- Up to 20 hours of talk time on a single charge
- 5 minutes of charge time provides around 1.5 hours of listening time
The headband is engineered to distribute the weight evenly, but the headphones weight quite a bit, 386 grams, to be exact.
The earcups are soft and deep, providing plenty of room around your ears brings a number of benefits, from effective weight distribution to making noise isolation easier to accomplish.
AirPods Max outperforms Sony’s ANC in the crucial low frequency range.

Danielle Sherman –
I did not actually buy these because I don’t have Apple products, which you need in order to use them. However, I did do lots of research on noise cancelling headphones when deciding to buy so I just thought I’d let y’all know that for just use alone, it did sound like these were the best on the market. Most effective noise cancellation, most neat features of using the headphone, and super comfortable. Also definitely the most expensive. If you can afford them and you have an iPhone and/or other Apple products to use these with, I’d so go ahead and decide on these babies. If not, I landed on the Bose QC45 and am very happy with that decision.
