How to restart Airpods Max
While connected to power, press both buttons for 12s until light near charging port flashes amber (warning: pressing for longer will do a reset).
Connect Airpods with a keyboard shortcut
not working with:
activate application "SystemUIServer" tell application "System Events" tell process "SystemUIServer" -- Working CONNECT Script. Goes through the following: -- Clicks on Bluetooth Menu (OSX Top Menu Bar) -- => Clicks on SX-991 Item -- => Clicks on Connect Item set btMenu to (menu bar item 1 of menu bar 1 whose description contains "bluetooth") tell btMenu click tell (menu item "AirPods Max" of menu 1) click if exists menu item "Connect" of menu 1 then click menu item "Connect" of menu 1 return "Connecting..." else click btMenu -- Close main BT drop down if Connect wasn't present return "Connect menu was not found, are you already connected?" end if end tell end tell end tell end tell
might need to look into
Clicks on SX-991 Item and test again later.
AirPods Max sound is choppy
12 Dec 2022
Since last week, bluetooth connection has become unstable, with choppy sound at best.
Uusually restarting as described above works - at least for a while.
Tried now to forget the device, and re-pair it, as follows:
- Go to Settings > AirPods. Then tap Forget This Device.
- Connected the Airpods Max to power for 30s and resetted it (15s on both buttons til while light, ie 3s more as a restart)
- Placing the Airpods Max near my iPhone and pairing it anew.

Got them to Apple Repair, who ended up replacing them. Same issue.
It seems that my bluetooth keyboard Kinesis Advantage keyboard might be interfering with the Airpods Max.
