According to a report by 9to5Mac, a number of AirPods Max owners are experiencing condensation inside the ear cups, a phenomenon that generally happens when a cold object is adjacent to humid or warmer air.
So, uhh… my AirPods Max form condensation after extended use. They’ve never been used in any humid environment. The water gets inside the drivers and has caused ear detection problems. I’ve been wearing them inside sitting at a desk mainly, nothing crazy. Super concerning issue pic.twitter.com/0pWicvxLv9

Since AirPods Max are primarily made of metal, they are more likely to get cold enough to start picking up water from the humid air inside the air cups.
AirPods Max users experiencing condensation have reported that they’re seeing some of this collected water making its way inside the speaker holes to the drivers.
Based on the reports we’ve seen so far, it’s likely this condensation is the nature of owning a pair of these mostly metal AirPods Max headphones, although it is somewhat concerning that some seem to be experiencing this issue without doing anything particularly unusual with their headphones.
We, at iPhoneinCanada, have so far not yet experienced this issue but if you’ve also noticed condensation inside your AirPods Max, do let us know in the comments section below.
