Apple’s AirPods obviously need no introduction from us. From the reviews stating “weird” to the ones calling them the “future of earphones,” these wireless earphones had mostly received a mixed response from the users when it was made available last month. Priced at $159 (approx Rs 10,000), AirPods are one of the most expensive wireless earphones in the markets today.
If you are one of those who owns a jet-black variant of iPhone 7 and finds the white colored AirPods mismatching with your smartphone, there’s good news. A company named “BlackPods” claims that it has developed a proprietary coating system to get your AirPods colored black. The company also added that the process is completed in three stages and gives a scratch-resistant finish to the earbuds.
“We love Apple’s AirPods, but talked to many users who wished they could have them in other colors. It seemed that most AirPods owners wished they came in black to match their jet black/matte black iPhones”, says Peter O’ Petteri (Founder of BlackPods).
Where to buy BlackPods?
According to the website, the BlackPods are hand-finished by a group of skilled artisans based in Brooklyn, New York City. You can purchase a new pair of BlackPods for $249 (approx Rs 17,000) from the company’s own website. Also, the original AirPods owners can opt for a repainting service offered by the company for a price of $99 (approx Rs 6,700).
