AirPods are fantastic when you want to listen to your favorite playlists or podcasts on iTunes. Even if you're just using them to make phone calls, there’s nothing quite like the sound quality and the convenience of Apple's AirPods.
The problem is that the charging case that comes with AirPods is very easy to lose, and they are prone to easy breaks too. Luckily, you don’t have to settle for the standard Apple case for your AirPods. From the wild and wacky to the overwhelmingly cute, here are some great ideas for cute and (sometimes terrifying) AirPods cases.
1. Best for high rollers
If you've got cash to burn and you love a bit of the old bling, then you need to check out the LUX Airpods Deluxe. These simply scream opulence and are coated with two layers of either 24K gold, 18K pink gold, or 950 platinum.
Unfortunately, you can’t just buy the case on its own. You're going to need to buy the LUX AirPods too, and that’s where the cost is really going to be noticeable. Expect to pay around $10,000 for the AirPods and the gold case!
If you've got that kind of money to throw around, then the diamonds on the AirPods themselves are well worth it. These are real Apple products that have been customized by LUX, so you know you're getting Apple quality with a luxury touch.
These aren't for everyone, but they’re scarily cute. The gold adds an elegance that even classic Apple products can rarely match.
2. Best for protection
If the thought of spending that much cash on your cute AirPods case is too terrifying, there are much better and more realistic options to look at. The leatherbound Maison de Sabre AirPod cases come in your choice of colors and are fantastically practical.
Leather is a great option for your AirPod case because it adds that extra layer of protection that the standard AirPod case lacks. You can even have your case monogrammed with the initials of your choice. That’s a great gift idea for those people who are impossible to buy for!
Classic, elegant, functional, and as customizable as you need, Maison de Sabre leather AirPod cases are about as cute as it comes. And they’re practical too.
3. Best for geeks and nerds
Looking for something with more of a pop culture touch? Don’t panic, because there are more options available than you might ever have thought. Just a simple Google will show you cute AirPod cases that will reflect whatever fandom you like.
You’ll find AirPod cases designed to look like Darth Vader, others that are emblazoned with superhero logos, and even those that are designed to look like old gaming consoles. Whether you're buying for yourself to listen to Thousand Foot Krutch or the geeks and nerds in your life, you're not going to struggle to find the perfect pop culture case for AirPods.
Bear in mind that the most popular platform for buying customized AirPod cases is going to be Etsy, so be careful. There are a lot of overpriced products and your AirPod case might not be as high quality as advertised.
It’s also worth remembering that not all cases are suitable for all AirPods. If you’re currently trying to work out the best AirPods for you, make sure that you know the difference between the Airpods and the Airpods Pros, and that the case you buy is the right type.
4. Best for special occasions
If you’re looking for a cute AirPod case and you've browsed through the options and not found anything, you still have options. One way to get the perfectly cute AirPod case you've been dreaming of is to simply design it yourself.
If you have artist friends, get their help with the design. Then, contact any local manufacturers in your area to find out who can help. You might be surprised by how easy this approach is, or how cool the final result is.
5. Best for people that lose their case often
Do you keep losing your AirPods case? You're not the only one! According to Apple, fans of the brand will spend around $700 million a year replacing cases and AirPods. You might not have that problem if you treat yourself to a glow-in-the-dark AirPod case.
You can order these straight from Apple, but there are plenty of cheaper versions available online. If you're in the habit of losing your case every time you're getting ready to go out in an evening, being able to spot your case in the dark is a game-changer.
The AirPod case is intended to make it easier to keep your AirPods safe, even if you drop them. While some of the cutest Airpod cases are great for attracting attention, they aren’t all designed to protect your AirPods.
Check your budget and think about the functionality of the AirPod case you need. Choose the case that's the best combination of cuteness and practicality. You might never go anywhere again without it.
