How easy is it to repair the AirPods Max? iFixit has the answer

Apple’s AirPods Max have a structure that is more modular than initially assumed: It quickly became apparent that the ear pads adhere magnetically – and can therefore be removed easily. The over-ears thus offer the possibility of further influencing the color design – by using different colored ear pads (see). It has now been shown that the bracket can also be removed without great difficulty – which may further promote the individualization of the headphones in the future and significantly increase repairability.
