Incase AirPods Pro Case with Woolenex


This case looks more like a fashion statement and is currently offered only at Apple. It features a lightweight design, made from durable Woolenex that assures protection against scuffs and scratches. This durable fabric material also has water resistance, but we'll avoid taking your AirPods or AirPods Pro with it for a swim, as the case is, well, made from fabric. It is available in four colors for the AirPods Pro and four other colors for the standard AirPods.

Catalyst Waterproof AirPods case


This AirPods case is not only great for protection against accidental drops from up to 6.6ft. It is also waterproof down to 3.3ft if you happen to drop your AirPods in your drink (it can happen). It comes in different colors to match different styles and outfits and even has a glow-in-the-dark green option, which is pretty convenient if you happen to search for your AirPods at night to listen to some chill music to fall asleep.

The charging port is sealed for protection but can be revealed but lifting a cover. This case is designed much like a sleeve; in order to access your AirPods, you have to peel the case like a banana. A carabiner comes in the set if you want to hook up your AirPods to your belt or on your bag.
