Labor Day sales are really heating up. And Amazon is offering one of our favorite discounts of the season right now. 

For a limited time, the Apple AirPods Max are on sale for $429 at Amazon (opens in new tab). That’s a massive $120 discount compared to the $549 full retail cost of the wireless headphones. This deal is available on all color options, apart from Space Gray (opens in new tab) which are slightly more expensive at $479.

This discount brings the AirPods Max back to its lowest ever price and is easily one of the best Apple deals we’ve seen in recent weeks.

One of our favorite AirPods Max accessories, this hard case offers significantly more protection than Apple's own Smart Case. Even better this case comes with a built-in magnet that the manufactures claims can trigger the same low-power mode as Apple's own case, so you're not losing any functionality if you opt to switch this third-party alternative. 

We rank AirPods Max as one of the best noise-cancelling headphones you can buy. These excellent cans compete with the likes of the Sony WH-1000XM5 and Bose 700 thanks to remarkable audio quality and top-notch noise cancellation. When it comes to a premium audio experience you really cannot go wrong with AirPods Max. 

In our AirPods Max review, we found that the wireless noise-cancelling headphones had a great combination of cushy comfort, pristine audio quality, and intuitive controls and seamless pairing with Apple devices. The 20-hour battery life will easily get you through a whole day on a single charge, and the inclusion of Apple’s Spatial Audio technology is an absolute game-changer for a more immersive listening experience.

We also really liked the luxurious design and the comfortable fit of the AirPods Max. Although the lack of an on/off switch continues to puzzle us, and the so-called Smart Case provides little to no protection. Thankfully a Tom’s Guide staffer has managed to find a solution to that particular problem. 

The AirPods Max definitely doesn’t rank as a cheap audio option, but if you’re a heavy Apple user and want a premium set of over ear headphones then you should consider a purchase. And at $429, you’re getting a pretty fantastic deal on an easy-to-recommend set of wireless cans.
