Apple’s AirPods are the most talked-about tech accessory out on the market right now. With rumors of the release of the third generation earbuds continuing to circulate, it’s looking like an official rollout could come sooner than we think.

Owners of the current AirPod iteration are happy enough with the existing model to turn them into functional jewelry accessories, or to go to extremes to save them when they fall onto subway tracks or traffic. But one’s love for AirPods shouldn’t be too complicated and the simplest way to give more care to the device is keeping them safe in its case. But for some, Apple’s stock case just isn’t enough as fans want either better convenience or just more flair to match their lifestyles.

Tons of AirPod cases have been unleashed out into malls, boutiques and the e-commerce universe, making it tough to choose the best option. Don’t fret, though, we here at HYPEBEAST have narrowed down a slew of options into the most functional and stylish cases. They vary from sleek luxury designs and branded collab cases to environmentally-friendly choices.
