Spigen invented a wired solution to not losing the wireless Apple AirPods
Apple's brand new AirPods have their virtues in that they are competitively priced, convenient, pack an impressive amount of technology, and deliver joyful tunes wirelessly. The gloomy side is that wearing them makes you look like as if you've stuffed your ears with broken electric toothbrush heads, and that losing them eventually is very much a given.

With its simplistic new invention, Spigen has managed to solve both these problems. Seizing the opportunity, the popular accessories maker released the $10 AirPods Strap, which attaches to the pair of earbuds and neatly falls onto the wearer's neck. This way, if the AirPods were to slip away, they would simply dangle from the wire. It's an efficient design, familiar to that of regular Bluetooth headsets. There's also a convenient wire holder attachment that prevents the strap from tangling up.

Of course, carrying the AirPods Strap will make those wireless earbuds a smidgen more wired than they used to be. But it won't make them any less practical, and in the end, that's what really counts. The AirPods Strap can be purchased from the source link below.

at this point, just get some wired bluetooth earphone, like jaybird X2, or others, it sound better, looks better, longer battery life, and (most likely) cheaper

Sooner or later Apple themselves will sell these 'stringed' together. Perhaps they left it up to 3rd parties for the time being in order to get more licensing revenue. If so, another brilliant business decision by the company in Cupertino.

Thanks. Some crazy dudes sent a boat load of them. I've been lolling all day. Try this. The iphone9 will be invisible so you'll have to buy iphone9 special iSee googles of $350 so you can see your phone Then The iPhone 10 would be so security focused... you'll send a mail to apple HQ and wait for their authorization to make a call...

I watched the presentation so good luck with the $160 Air pods and these remaining MAGICALLY in your ear The wireless Air pod are ONLY good for sports like chess STATIC (NOT dynamic) aka motion....less (You can forget about the being used in any activity that requires your head to move] Apple MUST know this Look in the recap video at the end of the presentation the Air pod was NOT even mentioned in the video It was reduced to sit amongst the iPhones on a table So to be clear there is soon to be released a NEW wiresless Dr Dre Beats Soloo 3 that has the same chip as the Air pod, designed to work with the iPhone 7 I can see how the Beats Solo 3 stay on Air pods..... the first question Apple should have asked is how will they stay in

They should have gone one step further and included a lightning connector to charge them, because what would happen if you were to forget the 3.5 adapter or the little charging case those pods came in? Apple's idea of taking a step forward as a company translates into taking 3 steps back for the consumer, and the consumer is forced to take 2 steps forward only to end up no further ahead.

Hah! So much for "wireless" Looks like the Icon X design with no wires period, and wont fall out your ears design is better. That and it has features too. Terrible design. Not so well thought out. Form over function.

This is cool. Wonder if some cheap eye glasses straps would work? I have some Bluetooth ear pods with wires just to the speakers. Wear like a necklace when not using. Excellent form. Hopefully Samsung have something for the Icon X. Cost to much to worry about losing.
