Ahhhh, the AirPod. Perhaps the most divisive innovation that came out of last week’s Apple Event, the AirPod has been touted by some as the most expensive way to lose money. If you’re prone to losing things, or shaking your head and getting toooooo into your music, you could easily lose $159. So, of course, it’s innovation to the rescue.
A new business popped up, offering a cord to keep your two AirPods together and around your neck. It kinda reminds us of a high-tech version of a glasses chain. The strap is a 22-inch silicon-looking thing that slips over the end of each AirPod to connect them. The strap is easily removable so you can charge your AirPods without much of a hassle.
Ridiculous? Maybe. But it’s a simple and effective fix for a problem that everyone has been talking about. Just think of it as insurance for your new listeners. Knowing the way we jam out to our tunes, the AirPod Strap looks like it could be an essential add-on to our fall Apple upgrade. It’s currently available for pre-order for $19.95. (But warning: There’s no word yet on delivery date.) Your move, Jony Ive.
Will you get AirPods? Let us know @BritandCo!
