BlackPods Custom AirPods

Feb 2, 2017

Category: Tech

The world was pretty stunned when Apple revealed their new AirPods. Sure, there’s been some panning about how easy it might be to lose them, but there’s no denying how cool they actually are. Even if you’re still upset about the lack of a headphone jack on your new phone, these are a clear solution that are not only functional in a way that only Apple manages to pull off, but they’re also stylish. There’s only one problem: they only come in white.

Well, not anymore. Now, BlackPods – an unaffiliated aftermarket brand – will take your AirPods and coat them in black. Or you can order a brand new pair (for a notably higher price). But it’s not just a color coating. Their proprietary three-stage approach results in scratch resistance, as well. Best of all, they’re all hand-finished by self-proclaimed artisans in Brooklyn, New York. The whole process takes about 3 days – plus shipping time – and will cost you $99 to send in your own pair or $249 for ones that are brand new. [Purchase]
