I’ve tried ‘off brand’ AirPod knockoffs. I returned all of them. I do NOT want to wear white AirPod Pros because they look like broken Q-Tip Swabs dangling from each ear. It’s strange that Apple doesn’t offer these earbuds made with clear acrylic or plastic allowing them to ‘fade’ into the many human skin tones of the wearer. Yes, I know there are tiny wires that could potentially be seen, however thin copper leads would not be noticeable. I am holding out for clear AirPod Pros

I would never want black APP in my ears, I might be interested in clear ones though.

If Airpods Pro came in black they would sell even more than they do now and Apple knows it. They can't keep up with demand as it is so they don't bother.

There's more than tiny wires in there:

Is this a joke or kust misinformed comment? You can get almost 1/3rd of apples products in black. MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac Pro, every damned iPad config. I can keep going....

Is this a joke or misinformed comment? You can get maybe two Apple product in black-- the iPhone 11 and the Apple TV. I'm not sure if I can keep going. Some watch bands maybe? A few accessories?

I would as it better matched my skin tone.

regardless with white any ear hair you have stands out, incredibly noticeable and it’s annoying let alone embarrassing.

beats all versions come in Black. iPhone comes in space grey even the Apple Watch so why not the AirPod series?!

please don’t tell me they’re iconic which is pure BS because Apple rarely brands tiny products eith their logos yet the copy printer clones abound - that confirms the iconic brand not the colour.

to the OP, you can try using isopropyl alcohol but you’ll likely ruin your APP. Best bet is to pay the extra $150 and order yours from Colorware.
