We have compared AirPods Max with several other sets of competing headphones from companies such as Bose, Sennheiser and Sony, but recently, Drop + THX Panda wireless headphones have attracted people’s attention, so we think we will look at how they measure it. In-ear headphones from Apple.
The Drop + THX Panda Wireless headset is priced at US$400 and is the first headset to provide THX AAA amplification. Drop calls it “the headset with the lowest distortion in the world.” They are also equipped with a “belt drive” to provide additional distortion resistance and a more realistic sound, and they are said to be super comfortable with the leather-wrapped plush foam ear cushions.
These radars did not appear in our sight until we started receiving voices from the YouTube community, so they are not as familiar as other more popular brands, but they have some impressive features. In other words, they are not better than AirPods Max, which is not surprising considering the price difference.
Speaking of sound, Mcrums Dan, the videographer who tested the headset, said that Drop + THX Pandas and AirPods Maxde are “not even relevant” in terms of sound quality and may even be better.
theAirPods Max is more comfortable than the Drop + THX Panda earphones. The latter puts more pressure on the temples and cheeks, while AirPods Max can distribute weight better. AirPods Max’s mesh earmuffs are also more comfortable than leather earmuffs because the leather and tight seals can get hot.
Compared with “AirPods Max”, the Drop + THX Panda headset lacks active noise reduction, but there is enough sealing around the head to cover up most external noise.
The Drop + THX Panda earphones are equipped with a hard shell suitable for earphones and other cables. If you want to use them in a wired way, they are equipped with a USB-C cable for charging and a 3.5mm audio cable. In contrast, “AirPods Max” has a Smart Case, which is not particularly protected.
In terms of battery life, the Drop + THX Panda headset can be used for up to 30 hours, which is 10 hours longer than “AirPods Max”. As for the controls, Drop x THX Pandas has a small joystick that can be used to skip tracks and control playback.
All in all, Drop + THX Panda earphones are ideal for those who want good sound quality and don’t mind the lack of active noise reduction. However, AirPods Max can be used in comfort, ANC function, spatial audio, head detection, and H1 chip. Realize fast pairing and fast device switching, and easy to use with Apple devices.
