Apple’s AirPods are beloved for their convenience and compactness. And while freeing yourself from a tangle of cables is great, it’s not without drawbacks. AirPods are easier to lose than wired earbuds, especially because if they slip out of your ear, they’ll fall to the ground.
That’s why it’s important to keep your AirPods case close at hand so you can safely store them when not in use. While many people like to clip them onto their belt loop or bag, Apple’s AirPods case doesn’t come with any way to attach it to a keychain. And the shiny plastic of the Apple case is prone to scratches. The solution is to invest in a case cover for your AirPods case. Most case covers have clips for attaching keychain rings or some other attachment. Best of all, with hundreds of color options available, you can customize your case to suit your style.
One of our favorite materials for an AirPod case is silicone — silicone is temperature-, water- and abrasion-resistant, and it gives the cases a pleasant hand-feel. Silicone cases will also add additional protection to the charging case that comes with the AirPods.
These are the best silicone cases for AirPods to get online. All of the cases on this list allow them to be used with a wireless charger so you don’t have to remove the cover just to charge your headphones. Plus, the battery status indicator shows through the silicone, so you won’t sacrifice any of the functionality of your charging case. We’ve included cases that fit the standard and Pro models.
