AirPods always look great when you first take them out of their box, but it only takes a few days for their shiny white case to become covered in scuffs and scratches. That’s why you should protect yours with a great case.
Check out Elago’s brilliantly cool new lineup of cases for AirPods 3, which includes simple silicone sleeves, luscious leather options, and others inspired by awesome retro tech, including the original Game Boy and Macintosh.
Elago will keep your AirPods 3 looking sharp
We’ve reviewed a number of Elago’s AirPods cases here on Cult of Mac, and we’ve been impressed by all of them. They do a great job of keeping your precious buds in pristine condition, and they’re super-affordable.
Prices start at just $10.99 for the lightweight and insanely rugged silicone options, but if you want something a little fancier, you can upgrade to real leather for less than $20. Here are some of the options available now:
The awesome AW5 case, as you’ve probably noticed, is inspired by the original Nintendo Game Boy. It features a faux directional pad and action buttons, and even ridges on its back like those on the real Game Boy’s battery door.
Like most of Elago’s AirPods cases, those one ships with a keyring and clip that lets you attach your buds to almost anything. It’s also made from high-quality silicone that offers great impact protection.
Perhaps even cooler than the AW5, for Mac fans, at least, is the AW3, which is inspired by the original Macintosh. Its attention to detail is terrific, from the “hello” emblazoned on its screen, right down to the teeny-tiny floppy drive.
Want something incredibly colorful? Check out the Ice Cream Case, available in mint and lavender — both with pink and yellow sprinkles.
The Clear Case, available in neon yellow, lovely pink, and clear, can also add a splash of color to your AirPods. It also features a unique micro-dot pattern that’s designed to keep it free from greasy fingerprints.
For an ultra-rugged look, check out the sturdy Solid Armor case. It’s made from a tough thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) with a sweet carbon fiber styling that’s sure to protect your AirPods from even the nastiest drops.
If you want to go high-end, look no further than Elago’s Leather case. It’s made from genuine natural cowhide, and it wraps up your AirPods to ensure they don’t pick up scratches and chips while they roll around in your bag.
