The Bose and Sony’s headphones are being called toys as compared to the AirPods Max, which got an iFixit score for repairability more than 0.
iFixit tore down the much-awaited AirPods Max, and now that is finally complete. Giving the enthusiasts the detailed look of what is inside the Apple’s over-ear headphones, and also gave a quick idea of how easily they can be repaired. iFixit also went ahead and tore down Bose’s as well as Sony’s headphones, which are NC 700 and WH-1000XM4, just for the sole purpose of comparing. So far, iFixit never tried to repair Apple’s AirPods ever but that record has been broken as iFixit finally repaired the AirPods Max, which were the debut of Apple in the over-ear headphones department, and iFixit gave it a repairability score of 6 out of 10. Which is amazing.
Why was the rating so high? Because the cushions of the ears are attached with magnets, that makes them incredibly easy to swap as well as repair. Rather than using glue to hold together numerous components, Apple used screws, which makes it easy to replace and repair. The headbang hinge as well as the ear cups can be detached, which makes the price of the AirPods Max justifiable. Although the insides of the AirPods Max are held together with screws, the outside is held together with adhesives.
iFixit also tore down the Sony and Bose’s headphones mentioned above. And iFixit called them toys in front of the amazing craftmanship of AirPods Max. The AirPods Max cost 550 dollars, since they cost so much, it is good news that they can be repaired no matter if their battery runs out or any other issue arises. Now, the same thing needs to happen for the wireless AirPods as well.
