Normally, it is advisable to read the opinions and opinions on a product before buying it with the maximum of waiting a certain time before buying it. But with Apple, it increases to the maximum, as many products fail after the first months of life and use by users. In the case of the AirPods Max, this is obvious, because we are talking about premium headphones with a price of $ 549 which endanger the safety and integrity of the helmet itself with an irreparable problem when the time comes.
The formation of water droplets is caused by the sweat of users
In major internet and social media forums, many users are echoing this issue, such as Donald Filimon, who comments on the following:
So, uh… my AirPods Max are condensing after prolonged use. They have never been used in a humid environment. Water got inside the speakers and caused problems with ear detection. I mainly wear them indoors, sitting at a desk, nothing crazy. Great problem pic.twitter.com/0pWicvxLv9

Filimon guarantees that when condensation does appear there are problems detecting the headset, and this only happens during periods of prolonged use. As can be seen from the photographs provided by the user himself, the accumulation of condensation is quite high and puts the helmet itself at risk.
We are not sure if Apple is aware of the issue and if it falls under warranty in case of failure, but as you can see in the same branch of Twitter, many users are reporting the same issue, so we are facing a case. widespread and this should not happen, let alone in a helmet at 549 dollars.
The AirPods Max setting, solution or problem?
There is a lot of talk about this and the possible cause of the problem. Early indications suggest that the extreme fit achieved by these headphones could be the cause of the condensation, and that is that Apple designed them with the aim of blocking noise around us, which, along with the active suppression of the noise, should provide perfect insulation.
The ultra-dense pads would finish doing the rest and therefore the accumulation of air and heat, which with the passage of hours ends in condensation due to the existing temperature difference.
So for now and while waiting for an official statement from Apple and a possible solution, it is advisable to remove these pads and dry the earbuds every few hours to avoid breaking or shorting.
Especially since Apple may not even pronounce or simply recognize this as a design flaw, which without being something extremely rare in the industry, it is true that for this price, headphones in the same segment do not. not suffer problems about it.
