@zichi

Even the AirPods are too expensive

I scored AirPods Pro for $169 at Walmart during Black Friday.

This image doesn't show it, but when viewed from any other angle the top of these looks hideous.

Apple pricing these headphones at 61,800yen is a big sticker shock....until you see apple willing to sell you a pair at 3,000 yen a month for 2 years. Most young people can and are willing to give up a night out or two a month for the clout gained by having a pair of Apple earphones and that is what Apple is capitalizing on. I don't see many of the other luxury brands willing to look and act like a subscription service.

Guys, check out Janpara. They are everywhere and also online. You can find "new-used items" for really good price. Bought a few Bluetooth earphones and the deal was amazing.

AirPods Max, will cost $549 — far more than similar products from Bose and Sony that offer many of the same features,

Thats getting a bit greedy there Apple.
