The AirPods Max has ear cushions made of high-quality materials including memory foam and mesh. As with any headphones, the ear pads are the first to wear out. Fortunately, you can easily replace the cushions and buy new ones.
The earpads are made of acoustic memory foam that has been specially developed to isolate sound. Apple has opted for mesh for the finish, but the printing capacity may decrease over time. Changing and replacing the ear pads is a piece of cake.
