Apple AirPods and AirPods Pro are now more ubiquitous than their predecessor, the EarPods. And though they’re an accessory themselves, they have spawned their own category of accessories—chargers, transmitters, cases, and, perhaps most popular of all, products designed to keep you from losing your AirPods. Below, we’ve rounded up some of the most useful things you’ll want to purchase to accompany your Apple earphones.
Catalyst Waterproof Case
Whether it’s weather you’re worried about or a trip to the beach, Catalyst has cases for your AirPods or AirPods Pro that protect them from rain, snow, and even dust. They also guard against bumps and still allow for wireless charging.
Twelve South AirFly Pro Bluetooth Transmitter
There are lots of times you might miss having a wired pair of earbuds, like when you’re flying and want to connect to in-flight entertainment or are at the gym and want to plug into a headphone jack on equipment. That’s where the Twelve South AirFly Pro Bluetooth Transmitter comes in. It transmits wirelessly to where only wired devices could go.
Positive Design Magnetic AirPods Strap
The Positive Design Magnetic AirPods Strap either defeats the purpose of AirPods or saves them from being lost forever. It all depends on how you look at it or how many pairs of AirPods you’ve replaced. To keep your AirPods close even when you’re not using them, the strap snaps them together around your neck. You can use it with both regular and pro versions and it comes in white and black.
Elago AirPods Pro Cover
