Hi Guys, I’m about to purchase the SimplyCarbonFiber case for the Apple AirPods and the thing is kind of expensive at 99$ but I’m going to use a coupon code to bring the price down to 75, my question is this though,

When the new version of the AirPods 2 come out, do you guys think I’ll be able to use this carbon fiber case on the new airpods 2 or are the AirPods 2 going to have different dimensions than the current AirPods? I’m aware of the fact that the new AirPods 2 are rumored to have the light indicator moved from the interior of the AirPod case to the exterior of the case so in that sense I’m aware that any AirPod case that is currently made for the current AirPods will end up covering that rumored light indicator of the AirPods 2 but I guess I’ll be fine with that but if the dimensions of the AirPods 2 differ even to the slightest then it would mean that I won’t be able to use this expensive case on the new AirPods 2 and it might not be worth to spend 75$ on a case that will be obsolete when the new AirPods 2 come out.

Hope someone can shed some light on this matter for me, Thank you

You might want to wait for the actual announcement from Apple before you buy the case. Any information given now are more likely speculative and rumors than actual specs

I see, i guess i wont buy the case afterall, it would be a total waste of 75$ if i bought it now and it ends up not fitting the new AirPods 2 which i intend to upgrade to from my original AirPods 1.
