We’re not the kinds of guys who keep giant collections of magazines in our homes. We know guys who do, but it doesn’t fit with the minimalist appeal we strive for. We read an issue and we’re done with it. There’s no bookshelf lined with rows of Esquire or stacks of Wired that double as coasters. Now, there are occasions when we will hang on to a certain issue because something catches our eye. Something that makes it worthy of taking up a sliver of space on our crowded shelves.

BlackPods-CM-IF2-2-12

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
