I personally believe the audio industry owes a massive debt of gratitude to Apple. The company has singlehandedly caused ripples in the industry ever since the iPod. Whether it’s the tiny music playback device, or the birth of iTunes and the death of music piracy, or the removal of the headphone jack and the ushering of the wireless age of AirPods (or even the fact that Apple literally invented the podcast), it’s undeniable that a major chunk of the past 20 years have been pretty much governed by what Apple has said or done.
Elago’s AW6 cases for the AirPods help cover that journey from beginning to end. Designed to mimic the iPod Classic’s jog-dial, the silicone sleeve for the AirPods are a nice bookmark in time, while also acting as a protective cover for your AirPods case. Compatible with 1st and 2nd gen AirPods, the sleeve comes with a slot for the charger as well as a carabiner clip so you can hang that piece of audio-nostalgia from your belt-loop or your backpack… and that tiny hole right above the menu for the charging light just sweetens the deal!
