We know that your AirPods already come with a case that protects headphones during storage and charging. But the case itself also needs protection. Placing your closed AirPods at right angles can cause a crack in the box or unwanted disassembly. I have prepared this collection of budget cases that you can get for less than $ 15.

The AirPods case is quite sturdy at first, so I don’t think you should enclose it in a sturdy Mil-rated safety case – a thin layer of silicone should be appropriate. There are many silicone cases like the one under $ 10 or so that include a dust cover for the charging port, allow the LED to light up and have a metal carabiner loop, but this one is also water resistant, which can come in handy on the beach or while standing over the sink.
In a sense, the Mobosi Military AirPods case cover is pretty typical – it’s a rubber case that you slip on over the AirPods’ wired or wireless charging case and comes with a secure mount for a removable carabiner. But the magnificent diagonal fins give this case a military look and at the same time help to catch it.

Most cases are very functional – just shockproof sleeves for your AirPods cases. But we need some whim in my life, which is why I love this surprisingly detailed silicone mini car. The headlights and taillights glow in the dark, and the hard silicone material means it’s just as absorbent as the Flubber. Despite its shape, it also does not interfere with wireless charging.
Your AirPods Pro slides into this silicone case, which comes in over a dozen colors. The LED charging light is visible, the case does not interfere with wireless charging and the whole thing is waterproof. Also supplied with a carabiner for mounting on the go.
Most cases are soft, rubberized silicone, but the Ztotop Case for AirPods Pro is a combination of silicone and TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane), resulting in a shockproof hard shell. The top of the lid uses glue to hold it attached to the hinged lid of the box, and comes with a carabiner that attaches to a solid point on the box. It is open at the bottom to allow cable charging and does not interfere with wireless charging.
