Superb audio and noise-cancelling: Good but nowhere near the best sound, however noise cancelling is comparable to others.

Cinematic spatial audio: They have done a great job of that. (Providing you only have Apple products)

Exceptional build quality: No better than similar priced headsets.

Near-pointless case: I am not sure it even classifies as a case.

Audio cable not included: It’s an Apple product so nothing new there.

Practically Apple-only: What else is new?

Value: 3 stars at best would need to be half the price to get 5 stars.

You need to reread the review. Also it’s laughable that you claim build quality is no better than others in the price range. Plus you have never heard them which is obvious.

"the treble is superb, with the triangle at the end twinkling brilliantly "

Is it only an opinion from reviewer or based on measurements ?

Rtings review:
"The Apple AirPods Max's treble accuracy is sub-par. It's underemphasized throughout most of the range, resulting in veiled vocals and lead instruments. Sibilants like S and T sounds are slightly dulled.
Std. Err. 5.65 dB
Mid-Treble -0.47 dB
Low-Treble -5.16 dB
High-Treble -2.95 dB"

(Bass and mid are very good, by the way.)

dear What Hi-Fi,

what about talking about facts: technical specifications: codec, frequency range... and this kind of things most of us we do care.

thank you.
