Hi everyone, just have a quick question about AirPods Pro - recently got my pair and the charging case looks off to me, there is this little gap on one side as if the parts aren't properly attached to each other there. Not sure if all the charging cases are like this - it doesn't bother me too much, basically I just want to make sure there's nothing wrong with the case and I should keep them.

I can’t see much to be concerned about there. Can you hear the case creaking?

If you’re not happy though, return it & see what they say - you’ve paid big money for them & you deserve to be fully satisfied with their build.

Its not a gap as far as I know. That side is slightly raised. Mine is the same in the exact same area.

I’m one for closely inspecting my stuff for defects to the point of absurdity, but even this is too far for me. These pieces must fit together, so there is necessarily going to be some tolerance to facilitate that fit. I’d imagine that it must be nearly impossible to fit them together evenly at every point, so just as we see small variances in the seams on the AirPods themselves, we too see them here.

Enjoy them in good health
