Apple AirPods have transitioned from an accessory to a necessity since their release in 2016. There’s no better way to drown out the noise of the daily commute, take a quick phone call or simply enjoy your favorite tunes.

But they’re easy to lose and can get dirty, especially since Apple opts for an all-white case.

Now in their second generation, we understand how important your AirPods can be, and how essential it is that you protect them. That’s why we put together this guide of the most stylish and protective AirPods cases.
