    I mean besides the airpods max being a rip-off to begin with even when officially bought from Apple, also considered the fact they call them pods when they are very clearly headphones and yes there's a difference... Buying decent pair of headphones for even $100 as long as they have good audio quality and Bluetooth connectivity why would you be upset? Also apples headphones are probably manufactured for about $200 anyway so you're paying for a logo after that.

    Something I do feel should be said, although this probably is a scam: since Apple does its manufacturing in China it's quite possible that some Chinese knockoff makers got wind of the Airpods Max in advance of the official announcement, and they would have potentially enough information to start building knockoffs pretty quickly; also due to the aforementioned Chinese manufacturing it's definitely not impossible for a product to have all the features of the Airpods Max but within the $100-$200 range.

    It's likely they will be able to make a reasonable copy of the physical headphones but the software side will be NOTHING like what is in AirPods Max. Apple has put years and I'm sure many millions of dollars into their audio group and the results speak for themselves. It isn't magic, it's just plain hard work. Hard work that the knock off company hasn't (and wouldn't) put in.

    This is absolutely never going to happen. AirPods and AirPods Pro are literally crappy plastic earbuds and the knockoffs couldn't get close on size and function for a year or two and now these guys claim to have copied the AirPods Max a month after launch? Yeah, sure... This is a different level of product. This is not like knocking off Beats headphones. Those are made of cheap shit plastic to begin with. Way easier to copy. At best they can probably get their hands on some refurb stock and sell that like the Escobar brand did with Galaxy Fold phones. We all know how that went.

    I mean Unbox Therapy is a "not so good person" himself, I mean he made a massive fake iPhone giveaway many years ago saying he was giving away like 300 iPhones and not one person who "won" received their iPhone, yet to enter you had to subscribe and so on. A cheap, fake way to get subscribers, a way that if I remember rightly, is illegal (if money was used I think). So it would NOT surprise me if Unbox Therapy was involved in this scam and was just working with them to get some more views, subs and money, this is also why he ignored your email to him. UB is more shady to me than the scam company here......

    well I can believe the $100 price tag the apple air pod at $500 is just over marked up and over priced. Like it say price it at what market will bare. And a lot of people will pay a lot for hype and marketing. I almost bet the Air pod is produced in china and someone stole the spec and make a deal to make exact copy for 1/4 price.... and still make a margin... it a scam either way it seem one over priced one steal your money.

    @Dana W I buy stuff on spec not on brand. I used one in a store but for what it sound like and it price I would never buy one even if I have 100 time my current income. Chinese manufacturer can make something that look exactly like an air pod fit a $30 set of speaker and electronic which included active noise cancelation active eq. etc. and charge $99 for it. And 99% of us cant tell the difference. A lot of people are like a friend mine that swore that he can tell the difference between a 40inch 1080p tv and a 46inch 4k tv at 10ft for his living room. When he cant even read 12pt text from that distance. He can see that there is text but cannot tell what the letter says.

  • My Dragon Hoard Is Yarn
    My Dragon Hoard Is Yarn25 hari yang lalu

    I do believe that good apple equivalent headphones at cheaper pricing can be achievable, just not from companies like this. Apple products are overpriced, no ifs ands or buts about that. They are the Gucci or Fendi equivalent of tech. Better headphones exist for cheaper in better quality, at half the price in real life. If you'd like an example watch DankPods's video on his own pair. DankPods is a big Apple fan who had quality issues with multiple Airpods Pros. He also has very good recommendations for genuine audiophiles who want good quality headphones. The differences would mainly be in the style of the headphones, they won't look like Airpods but they will function without cleaning out your wallets and dealing with bad quality control. If you want quality at proper pricing, please focus on companies that are dedicated to making headphones or audio related products. If you like Apple that is fine, but due to their popularity, don't expect any Apple rip off to ever work out. It's like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
