Thanks to a consumer-turned-designer named Nick, you can now buy Apple AirPods in a sleek all black colorway.
After trying the AirPods and finding himself pleasantly surprised with the sound quality, Nick realized there was a gap in the market in terms of color options. "After the announcement, there was a lot of chatter in the Apple ecosystem about how they looked (which I agree is a bit silly in their natural white color). The opportunity to create a more stylish, less obtrusive version that matches some of the other iPhone colors seemed obvious," he explained.
He then had to figure out a way to paint them without ruining the sound quality, by painstakingly avoiding multiple tiny acoustic openings. Eventually, Nick figured out a successful process, and you can now purchase the black AirPods in either glossy or matte black.
You can snag your own pair at BlackPods.
