Ever since their big debut, Apple’s famed AirPods have been a polarizing music medium: on one side, you have devoted Apple enthusiasts claiming the new design is the greatest thing since, well, the iPhone. On the other side, you have audiophiles voicing their concern over how easy it is to lose these little earbuds. After all, without a wired connection, the buds are easily dropped, lost or simply displaced.
Fortunately, no matter which sides of the wireless fence you’re on, best waterproof AirPod cases are designed to keep your Pods safe, secure, and most importantly, dry.
In addition to storing your Pods, they offer an impressive shock-resistant design and are even waterproof, so even if you get wet (great for super sweaty workouts), your Airpods don’t have to.
