The X-ray images of the Apple AirPods Max does show an interesting design to it though. It has two battery cells, both of which are on the right earcup. On the left, rather than any sort of counterweight, there’s instead a big antenna. Which, as iFixit says, weights next to nothing.
Overall, iFixit awards the Apple AirPods Max with a repairability score of 6/10. Despite the need for specialised tools, the process of tearing them down is at the very least possible without breaking anything in the process. It’s also the first AirPods product to get a non-zero score, which is saying something.
