    I just noticed my AirPods wireless case is full of scratches, mainly on its back. Must be from dust particles on the charging mat. Am I the only one? The scratches are driving me nuts. Are yours still pristine and if so how do you keep the case from scratching?

    I used a cheap silicon protector from Amazon to prevent scratches on mine.

    Best get used to it.

    I let mine get scratched up and then put a silicon case over it.

    I bought a wireless charging silicon case off ebay, no more scratches (I can literally drop it without worrying) and I don't have to mess with cables anymore. Win win.

    I would just get used to it. I actually don't mine the scratches on the airpods case. Yes it's plastic so it will scratch. You can get cases for it to prevent further scratches.

    While I don't mind the scratches on the airpods. I do mind it on iPhone and I have zero tolerance when it comes to iphones.

    There's a lot of skins out there for AirPods. You can just get one of those and that should eliminate the scratching issue. Unless you like the natural white case look and feel, then you don't have much of an option.

    I think that a mate finish would be less prone to scratches. It's the shiny, glass-like coating that gets scratched easily. A product this expensive should be more resistant so I blame Apple for the poor choice of materials. Anyway, thanks for your suggestions. I will get used to it, or eventually buy a new wireless case and a skin/case for protection.

    Ahhhhh, you mean dirt in your pocket. Unless your AirPods drift on your charger that is...
