Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Mar 4, 2022

Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!

Last week I wrote about Apple’s AirPods Pro, which are a “higher-end version of its existing AirPods with a unique design, noise cancellation technology, and better sound.” Apple has yet another model of AirPods available: introducing AirPods Max.

Unlike other AirPods, the AirPods Max are over-the-ear headphones.  The headband is made from a breathable knit mesh, so it distributes weight to reduce on-head pressure. The stainless steel frame is wrapped with a “soft-to-the-touch material for a remarkable combination of strength, flexibility, and comfort.”

Other features include:

  • Industry-leading Active Noise Cancellation to deliver an “unparalleled listening experience”
  • Telescoping arms smoothly extend and stay where you set them, for a consistent seal and fit
  • Digital Crown allows users to control volume, skip between tracks, answer phone calls, and activate Siri
  • Available in five different colors
