The AirPods and AirPods Pro are some of the most popular devices with an Apple logo at this point. As such, there’s a lucrative accessory market out there for the truly wireless headphones. We’ve put together a list of the best accessories you can buy now for Apple’s AirPods and the AirPods Pro, depending on which option you have. There are cases, different ear tips, wireless transmitter, and many more.
Twelve South AirSnap
This is a protective leather case for the standard AirPods case, and it will also fit the wireless charging case for the second-generation AirPods as well. It’s designed by Twelve South, and you can see the charging light on both AirPods cases while they are in the case.
The AirSnap is made from full-grain leather, or there is an option available in premium fabric twill if you prefer that option. It also boasts a strong “snap closure” to make sure that the AirPods case stays firmly inside. It also has an incorporated clip. And the bottom of the case has an opening for easy access to the Lightning port.
There are several color options to choose from. In leather you can go with Black, Cognac, or Deep Teal. Meanwhile, the twill option comes in Fog Grey or Smoke Grey.
Explicitly designed for AirPods, this premium case protects your earbuds when they aren’t in use. Offers space for the power adapter and a Lightning cable too.
Featuring a lifetime warranty, the Premium Zipper Hard Case offers durability and water-resistance on the outside and a soft lining on the inside.
The BookBook CaddySack from TwelveSouth is a travel organizer for your laptop and other tools, including cables, charging and syncing cords, and yes, your AirPods.
Featuring an elastic organization that adjusts for most USB adapters, dongles, and extra cables, the Caddyshack is made from genuine leather and looks good on the inside and outside.
The Catalyst case for AirPods may seem straightforward, but it offers quite a bit in design and features. First and foremost, it’s a thin silicone case, so it won’t add any extra bulk to your case. The case is waterproof and can keep the AirPods safe in up to 3.3 feet of water. There’s a port covering to stopper the Lightning port, too. It can protect the case from drops of up to four feet. It’s also scratch-proof.
The Catalyst case is available in a range of colors, including blue, purple, gray, green, red, teal, coral, glow, sunset, and translucent clear. It’s available for the AirPods Pro case as well.
This isn’t just a hardshell case. It also includes ear hooks for your AirPods plus a strap. Ideally suited to add stability to your workouts or other activities.
The AirPods Case 7 in 1 comes in multiple colors, including blue, white, and black.
AirPods Wireless Charging Case
Earlier this year, Apple launched the AirPods with a slightly better battery for calls, and a wireless charging case. The good news is that the wireless charging case also fits the first-generation AirPods, which means even if you didn’t upgrade to the newer truly wireless headphones you can still take advantage of wireless charging.
This case fits the AirPods, both first- and second-generations. It can be charged either wirelessly with a Qi-certified wireless charger or through the Lightning port on the bottom of the case. It’s a quick and easy way to top off your headphones without having to find a cable.
This usually retails for $79. At the time of publication, however, the wireless charging case is on sale for $69. It’s available to buy now.
Airpod Skins Protective Wrap
These inexpensive skin wraps for AirPods are available in multiple colors, including red, green, and gray. Each wrap is made from premium resistant adhesive vinyl for a durable fit. Use the wraps to protect your investment from wear, tear and everyday scratches.

Authentic EarBuddyz adds grip to the AirPods for additional support by conforming to the groove of your inner ear. Considered “ultra” comfortable, EarBubbyz are wearable during running, jogging, skating, snowboarding, conference calls, and much more.
Each pack contains two sets of EarBuddyz; available in black and clear.
AhaStyle Ear Hooks
These Ear hooks from AhaStyle feature a comfortable silicone design, and go beyond just adding a bit more design to keep the truly wireless AirPods in your ears. It does offer the C-style design to find a secure fit within your ear, and it comes in either a large or small size, depending on your needs.
But the AhaStyle Ear Hooks also offer a design that boasts “sound quality enhancement” by installing tips on the ends of the AirPods. The way the tips fit into place make it a noise-isolating design, aiming to keep a majority of the ambient noise around you at a minimum. It’s not exactly active noise cancellation, but for some it could be worth the additional accessory. AhaStyle also says it improves overall bass performance as well.
The ear tip is the same size, but you can choose either small or large fins. AhaStyle also offers two-packs for both small and large as well, if you already know which size you want or need. Each option costs $13.99, they’re available in either Black or Clear color options, and they’re available to buy now from Amazon.
CharJenPro has made a name for itself by offering some unique accessories for AirPods and AirPods Pro. In this case, it’s the company’s AirFoams ear hooks. These are ergonomically designed to fit snug within the ear, and the hook will make it so that they don’t slip out. The hook is made from an anti-slip silicone, and the company says one size should fit all.
Just slip the case on the AirPods Pro, which won’t add any significant bulk to the truly wireless headphones.
CharJenPro’s AirFoams Pro ear hooks are available now from Amazon.
The AirFly accessory from Twelve South is designed for the AirPods and AirPods Pro. With their truly wireless designs, it’s not easy to tap into more traditional audio options. That includes gym equipment, in-flight entertainment, or even some gaming devices. But with the AirFly accessory, of which there are many variants, you can use your AirPods to listen to media from all those things.
The AirFly relies on Bluetooth for wireless connectivity, so it will work with other wireless headphones as well, not just AirPods. Bluetooth 5.0 supported out of the box.
