‘This Case Is Weird’

Marques Brownlee’s unboxing and first impressions of AirPods Max. Pretty solid consensus among those of us with review units that the headphones are really good — both build and audio quality — and the “Smart Case” pouch is bafflingly inadequate.

Like Matthew Panzarino, Nilay Patel draws a comparison between cheap feel of the AirPods Max case and the $130 MagSafe Duo charger (which requires a $20 20W adapter).

iJustine makes the point that for $550, Apple should include a color-matched USB-C to Lightning cable.
