Guess what? Apple has done it again.
The tech giant known for dishing out shiny products at hefty price tags has upped their game with new wireless headphones in their kitty.
Apple has announced the newest addition to the AirPods wireless audio products line-up, and it is the AirPods Max wireless headphones.
The latest gadget also becomes the first over-ear headphones in the AirPods line-up. The Apple AirPods Max offer high-fidelity audio, Adaptive EQ, Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency Mode and spatial audio.

But Apple comes at a price. Remember the 50K Apple Mac Pro wheels kit or that ridiculously priced 70 grand Mac Pro stand?
Apple AirPods Max cost a whopping Rs 59,900 and the immediate reaction of the Internet to Apple's announcement was with jokes. Lots of them.

Not just the headphones, even its protective cover had folks in a tizzy.
The AirPods Max takes some inspiration from the Apple Watch and has an integrated digital crown-esque control for finer volume changes as well as the ability to play and pause music, skip tracks and handle phone calls.
