Best custom AirPods & accessories in 2018: Colorful earbuds, stickers, hooks, cases, and fins1
Now, the popular AirPods have been around for a while and word on the street is Apple is prepping a second generation of the earbuds that will come with a wireless-charging case, but we wouldn't bet that these will be available in the coming months - the second half of the year is a much safer bet
Get them on BlackPods' store
We are sure Apple will come up with AirPods in Space Gray, Gold, or even Rose Gold in the future, but until that happens, custom AirPods are the way to go. In case you're donning a Jet Black iPhone 7/7 Plus or a Space Gray iPhone 8/8 Plus/X, you might want to go for black AirPods as they'd go much better with the color scheme of your phone instead of the stock white ones. In case you have the cash to burn, BlackPods will sell you AirPods in Glossy/Matte Black or Aero Space Gray color. You should know that not only the charging case is fully-colored, but the AirPods as well, which is inherently nice.
Bespoke Colorware AirPods
If black's not exactly your color, Colorware might interest you a lot. It allows you to customize and order your unique AirPods, having roughly 120 different color options for both the AirPods case and the earbuds themselves. You can not only choose between solid and metallic colors, but also color each earbud differently for truly aesthetic results.
While the AirPods fit comfortable in most everyone's ears, there's still the chance that they might not fit you well and fall of in certain scenarios. Even worse so if you have, to put it lightly, "unorthodox"-shaped ears. Add-on fins are probably a great solution to this problem some of you might have as it will ensure for a secure fit and safekeep your AirPods right there where they're supposed to stay - in the groove of your inner ears. The Earbuddyz are compatible with any AirPod or EarPod model and easily slip on and barely add any perceivable width to the whole shebang. Overall, a great purchase for people who absolutely love the AirPods but have a hard time fitting them comfortably.
In case the fins featured above don't float your boat due to one reason or another, you can always go the hooks way. These neat and super-affordable add-on accessories feature small holes that allow you to slide your AirPods through and would then easily slide over your ears, making it essentially impossible for the tuned AirPods to drop off your ears. Surely, your earbuds won't fit in the AirPod case anymore due to the added bulk, but taking down the accessories isn't hard at all.
BlackPods Protective case
AirPods Silicon strap
The untethered functionality of the AirPods is one of their biggest advantage and it sounds counter-intuitive that they'd want to take a step back and tether them with a silicon strap, but some of you might be interested in that... because reasons. In case you don't have a liking for fins or hooks but still want to make absolutely sure you won't lose your AirPods during an intensive workout, a silicon strap is your second best bet. This 22" one (55.88cm) will make sure your AirPods are securely attached around your neck.
AirPods Skins (various offerings)
Skins for the AirPods are dime a dozen on Amazon, Etsy, and a whole trove of other websites, and we can only applaud the ingenuity of some of those. Ever thought of disguising your AirPod case with a vinyl sticker that makes it look like a dental floss box or a pack of gums? Aside from deterring potential thieves, doing that would also boost your street cred with all the cool kids out there. There are ton of others also available for the accessory and we will show you the very best ones we could find.
