Retro-AirPods

AirPods, like most Apple products, are ubiquitous. The problem then occurs that standing out is really difficult. Unlike with your MacBook, you can’t really cover the tiny earbuds with stickers to add some personality. So what’s an AirPods fan to do? Consider ColorWare’s AirPods Retro. ColorWare drew inspiration from the Apple IIe in designing these AirPods, giving them an ’80s Apple vibe. The putty color, faux vents, and rainbow mark all bring to mind those old computing days. Since this custom work probably voids Apple’s warranty (we’re guessing), ColorWare throws its own your way, so you can buy without fear. Pop them in your ears and crank Van Halen’s “Jump” and reminisce about the olden days.
