If you want to show the world how much your clickable iPod is missing, the Elago accessories manufacturer has launched a new carrying case for the AirPods and AirPods 2 of origin, which looks like the 39, one of the old school music players of Apple.
Available at $ 11.99 via Amazon or directly from Elago’s online store, the AW6’s case is available in white or black and red. It is made of silicone to protect your AirPod against damage while bouncing it into your pocket or bag. A separate model is also available and features a keychain and a carabiner for another dollar as compared to the base unit.
The case is 57 mm high, 47.5 mm wide and 24.5 mm thick. Its features are nothing particularly revolutionary, though it’s that it looks like one of Apple’s old MP3 players, of course, and that was no shortage from anyone else. To draw our attention. . The front of the Elago AW6 is equipped with the circular control wheel that the iPods had before the device received a touch screen for user input.
Although the wheel looks pretty authentic, with what appears to be a “MENU” button, it’s not a real click wheel, but only a silicone representation of it, so do not expect this feeling to be real. . It seems pretty close though and that’s the point.
As mentioned before, the case is compatible with Apple’s AirPods and AirPods 2, but not with the new AirPods Pro. When you have AirPods inside the case, you can charge them with a wire through an opening located at the bottom of the case or you can simply drop the case on any compatible Qi wireless charger and he will take care of the rest.
