We were joking around about how some company needed to make a leash accessory for Apple’s new AirPods, which feature two independent wireless earbuds and seem easy to lose and minutes later one materialized: Spigen’s new $10 AirPods strap is already on sale on Amazon. (No UK or Australian pricing is available yet). Simply put, it puts a wire between your AirPods, so you can keep them hanging around your neck like a typical wireless in-ear headphone that has a cord between the buds.
The Spigen AirPods Strap seems to defeat the AirPods biggest selling point (that they’re totally wireless), but hey, it’s only $10, and you can obviously remove it whenever you want to live more dangerously. It’ll be available on October 17 as the AirPods ship to consumers.
Here are the Strap’s key specs, according to Spigen, a Korean company known for its affordable smartphone cases and accessories. The strap is known to be compact, lightweight and extremely durable. It is perfectly compatible for your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus AirPods. It will connect directly from one earpiece to the other. The said strap is designed for all users and is ideal to never lose your Apple AirPods. You can keep it in place around your neck, in your pocket, or anywhere you can hang a strap.
It comes with premium housing and a wire holder attachment to stay tangle-free. The tangle-free design makes the cable easy to store that way you can wind it without having to worry about knots or kinks which happens with the regular wired earphones on a daily basis. The strap is ideal to use at home, in the car and even outdoors.
The Spigen AirPods Strap will make sure that your AirPods are always by your side without getting lost. Spigen’s AirPods Strap doesn’t come with Apple AirPods and they will be available for purchase from October 17 for $10 only.
