If you’re an Apple AirPods user, chances are that you use them on a daily basis. Whether you pop your AirPods in during your gym workouts, strolls in the park, long flights, or while you’re going about your workday, your AirPods probably get more use than many of your other devices–which is why it’s so important to make sure they’re protected. But what are the best ways to do that?

How can you protect your AirPods?

Let's take a look at how you can best protect your AirPods from anything that might happen.

AirPods case

First and foremost, one of the best ways to protect your AirPods is to store them in a safe place when you’re not using them. While there are hundreds of AirPod cases to choose from online, it’s important not to focus solely on the cool AirPod cases–look for a case that will do its job to keep your AirPods safe, such as a durable silicone or rubber option.

The case that comes with the AirPods when you purchase them is fragile, so adding an extra layer of protection is a great way to help keep them safe. Remember, while there might be a cute AirPod case you feel you have to get–look for one that’s as protective and functional as possible.

Metal carabiner

Another useful accessory to help you keep your AirPods safe is a metal carabiner. Small, compact, and cheap, metal carabiners allow you to easily hook your AirPod case into your belt loop or onto your wallet. AirPods are extremely easy to forget or misplace, so having this extra layer of security is a great way to protect them while you're out and about.

Gold chain

Ever worry you’ll drop one of your AirPods as you’re holding them, or that one of your AirPods will fall out of your ear as you’re working out? While this wouldn’t be much of a problem at home or in an enclosed area, in crowded spaces, dropping one of your AirPods could result in it being lost forever. This is why purchasing a gold chain as an accessory is a good idea. Not only is it stylish, but it will provide peace of mind as you’re using your AirPods while you’re out.

Ear hooks

Have you ever wished your AirPods fit in your ears just a little bit more snugly? Everyone has a different ear size and shape, and for some people, Apple’s “one size fits all” approach to the AirPods’ design just doesn’t quite work. Having a snug, comfortable fit is essential for helping you protect your AirPods and prevent unnecessary AirPod repairs.

Luckily, ear hooks can help you accomplish just that. Crafted from comfortable silicone, ear hooks are simple and easy to attach and make it possible for your AirPods to fit more comfortably and securely in your ear.

Final thoughts

Purchasing protective AirPod accessories is one of the best ways to prevent premature AirPod repairs and replacements, which can help you save hundreds of dollars in the long run. After all, there’s nothing worse than making an expensive purchase that doesn’t last. Luckily, with some of the helpful accessories we’ve discussed here, it’s easy to make sure that your AirPods are protected so you can feel confident that they won’t get damaged, lost, or broken anytime you use them.

Last, while it’s important to purchase an AirPods or AirPods Pro warranty to protect your AirPods, don’t forget to invest in product protection for your accessories too. Mulberry Unlimited can help you get coverage for all your Apple purchases under the same plan, helping you get the peace of mind you deserve.
