    Promising review: "This decal came out really nice and has stayed on for over a month while being thrown in pockets and bags. Of note, I have it on a Jabra wireless headphone case, so it's not just for AirPods. Very happy with it!" —Caitlin Sieber

    Get it from BelleLinee on Etsy for $5.50+ (available in 33 colors and 10 fonts).

    3. A set of memory foam ear tips for the AirPods Pro that form perfectly to the unique shape of your ear and add a level of cloud-like softness you won't get with the originals.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I thought at first that since these are a bit cheaper than some of the other AirPods Pro foam tips that are on market that the quality would be sub-par. But upon receiving them, I would definitely say that these are great. Few things that stood out: 1) Higher quality foam — it's very soft but has a tiny bit of grip, so it doesn't fall out of the ear. 2) It is very easy to install, it has the same locking mechanism as the original tips provided by Apple. It's very secure and does not get detached/fall off on regular use." —Calvin and Hub

    Get it from Amazon for $12.90 (originally $18.90).

    4. A vibrant floral case by Rifle Paper Co. that's so stylish it basically doubles as a fashion accessory. Plus, there's a chic gold hoop so you can clip it to your handbag, keys or belt loop and really make everyone jealous.

    Target

    Promising review: "This case is not only cute, it also fits snug and protects my AirPods. The top stays on by an adhesive. I have not had any issues with it falling off." —Mawebb

    Get it from Target for $24.99 (available in six colors and two sizes).

    5. A silicone stand you can place right on your bedside table so you'll always wake up to a fully charged AirPods case. Nobody should have to start their morning with that sad low-battery "doot-doot" sound 😔.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This accessory is one that makes you wonder why it wasn't included alongside the original product. The stand looks clean and sleek, blending in with the rest of Apple's devices perfectly. The device works wonderfully, just set your case down and it immediately starts charging." —Jerry Lathrop

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (originally $19.99, available in three colors).

    6. Or this four-in-one wireless charging station that's a must-have for any Apple fanatic. You can power up your iPhone, AirPods, Apple Pencil and Apple Watch all at the same time — all while getting rid of those pesky tangled charging cords.

    Promising review: "I highly recommend this Apple charging station! I bought this for my husband and he absolutely loves it. It plugs right in and charges his iPhone 8, AirPods series 1 and his Apple Watch Series 2 all at the same time with no issues and no more messy cords all over the place! There’s only one charging cord that plugs right in to the wall and I can’t believe how fast it actually charges everything and how long the battery lasts from the charge." —Alexis

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in two colors).

    7. A magnetic strap that connects both of your AirPods so you'll never have to worry about losing one of them in the middle of an intense workout.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I’ve already lost TWO AirPods before buying this. The funny thing is that you never lose them while actually wearing them. You lose them when putting them in your pocket (because you think it’s rude to leave them in when having a conversation — pre-COVID days of course). With the strap I can remove the pod and leave it hanging around my neck. If I do place the pods in my pocket, the strap keeps them together and would be much more noticeable if I dropped them." —The Weasel

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in nine colors).

    8. A set of silicone covers to provide a much more secure and snug fit — and eliminate any irrational fears of your AirPod flying out of your ear and down a sewer grate. If you find AirPods way too small and slippery for yours, these are a must.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I run half marathons and have bought three or four pair of earbud headphones that claim to stay in your ears. These, however, have been the only thing that I can find that don't slip. I've used them to train and through three races. I only wish that I found them before I bought several other pairs of expensive headphones that claimed to not fall out while running. Great purchase!" —CJ Taylor Assent

    Get it from Amazon for $10.63+ (available in four colors).

    9. A heavy-duty and fully waterproof case so your expensive earbuds will be completely safe when you get caught in a rainstorm... or if you accidentally spill your coffee on them. I just feel like one of you has been there.

    Promising review: "I've had this case for a few months now and I love it! All of the other waterproof cases are a little more pricey and this was definitely the best one... my AirPods have been through the rain multiple times and I haven't had any issues with the waterproofing." —James

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in seven colors).

    10. A wireless charger that is the perfect size for both your AirPods and AirPods Pro — and powerful enough to charge through most protective cases.

    Promising review: "I own a number of wireless charging stations and probably could have done without one specifically designed for for the AirPods Pro. However, the price seemed right and it looked nice so I decided to give it a try. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. I really like this charger. It looks nice on my desk and it works great. The interface is USB-C which makes it convenient. The AirPods case fits perfectly and it charges quickly, even with a neoprene cover over the AirPods case. I love it!" —M. Field

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in nine colors).

    11. A sleek case that will add wireless charging capabilities to older AirPods without unnecessary added bulk.

    Promising review: "I recently purchased Airpods and didn't think about wired or wireless. Once I received them I wished they were wireless. So I searched Amazon and found this wireless case. IT's GREAT! I just put my case in this case, set it on my wireless charger and that's it. When I'm ready to use the airpods, I take my case out, and set the charging case aside until the next time. Would definitely recommend." —Mary S

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    12. A super rugged AirPods Pro case, because you should definitely be protecting your $200 headphones like the precious angels that they are.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Just bought some new Apple AirPod Pros and wanted something to protect them. After searching, I landed on these. They work great and the clip is perfect when securing them. The material is 'rubber like' and flexible, but secures the case snugly. The price is right and I’d recommend." —G. Gunnels

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in five colors).

    13. A set of ear tips to give your normal AirPods a similar in-ear fit as the AirPods Pro. Many reviewers say they even help improve the sound quality, so it's like two upgrades for the price of one.

    Promising review: "I’m one of those AirPod owners who couldn’t fully enjoy them and knew there had to be a product out there to help keep them from slipping loose from my ears. The constant readjustment was seriously bothersome and frustrating. I’d even begun having buyer’s remorse. So I came to Amazon. Clearly if there’s a resolution to my issue I’d find it here. Right? And so I scrolled upon these silicone applications for my buds after looking at several others and decided on these and bought them. I have them in my ears now. PERFECTION! I put them in place in my ears and they simply stay put. That’s all I ever wanted. So if your buds slip and you have to keep fussing with them to keep them from falling to the ground, these are in fact quite comfortable and absolutely do the trick. AND THEY SOUND BETTER FOR SOME REASON. Trust me, YOU WANT THESE." —Willie Edward Redd

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in two sizes and two colors).

    14. A carrying pouch that will keep your AirPods super secure and safe during your commute and even has enough room for a few extra accessories.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "What a great little product! I need something small and sturdy to put my earbuds in for my job. This little guy not only stored my earbuds, but also my phone charger and cable!" —jb512

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    15. A simple yet reliable silicone case over 30,000 Amazon reviewers have raved over. It even comes with a tiny flap to keep the charging port safe and dust-free when not in use.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This cute AirPod case has a matte finish. The fit is actually very good. There is no sliding up or down on the AirPods when you open it. It feels nice and smooth, doesn’t have that rubbery texture that I hate." —Catlady-G

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in 45 colors).

    16. An Apple Watch attachment so you'll always have a place to store your AirPods even when you don't have your charging case nearby.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Great! I ordered this to hold my AirPods on my way to the gym because I had covers on them and they wouldn’t fit in my AirPods case while they were on. Works like a charm. Hardly even notice them." —William E Blakeslee Jr.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in eight colors).

    17. A PopSocket case that attaches right to the back of your phone so you'll never have to go searching frantically for your charging case ever again.

    PopSockets

    Promising review: "This is a high-quality case. It fits nicely and isn’t flimsy. I also bought the keychain adapter for it so I have the option to store my pods on my phone or on my keychain which is super handy!" —Meg

    Get it from PopSockets for $12 (originally $20).

    18. A highly rated audio transmitter so you can use your AirPods with any device that somehow still isn't Bluetooth capable in the year 2021 (*cough*Nintendo Switch*cough*).

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased this for Nintendo Switch/Switch Lite to use with AirPods Pro — after four, different attempts with other products out there — this one is a KEEPER. Works excellent, no latency (that I’ve noticed), easy to connect (mine does it automatically) and the charging while using is excellent. It also LOOKS well-made. It reminds me of a mini iPod." —drP

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    19. Apple's wireless charging case for any of you who were slightly disappointed when you realized you were gifted the cheaper, nonwireless version over the holidays.

    Promising review: "Works great with my wireless charger. So much more convenient than plugging in the wire. Just like my phone, I set it on the wireless charger and let it charge while I sleep, and when I get up for work I just grab and go quickly." —Wayne S.

    Get it from Amazon for $69.

    20. A clip-on attachment that turns any hat into a helpful spot to store your AirPods and is sure to spark a few conversations.

    Get it from tTachSecs on Etsy for $7.99 (available in three colors).

    21. A case you can also wear as a tiny cross-body bag, which is honestly kind of a look.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I was really surprised with how cute it really is. Fits my regular AirPods with a silicone case on it." —Tempest

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in three colors).

    22. And a belt holder if you want your AirPods to literally never leave your side. Plus, it will make you totally nostalgic for the days when beepers were all the rage.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I generally dislike belt clips for electronics as they look a little dorky, but this is small enough that if you don’t tuck in your shirt, nobody will see it is there. I think it is more secure than a holder with a carabiner clip, and doesn’t move." —Regular Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in five colors).
