Because of how large the charging case is I tried some other ways to carry the PBP’s. I found the soft cases allow the side button to be accidentally pressed thereby activating the player on the phone. I had a bunch of small zippered hard cases that I used to use for my AirPods when they first released and these work great, albeit tight, with the PBP’s. The actual case is slightly bigger than the actual AirPods charging case.

I like that case. I tried a soft case as well and in my pocket or even shaking the case it would keep activating the PBP and would sync with my phone. I ended up getting this soft/hard beats case and so far they do not automatically sync to my phone when they are in the pocket while walking.

Yup, I got that soft case too and in my experience it will activate the Pro's when I'm walking while they are in the pouch. Good to know a harder case should prevent that.

Yeah I got it off amazon for $9, it’s a slim case. It’s still not AirPod small but much better than the PBP massive case. Ive been walking all day, jumping and shaking the case and the PBP have not powered on while it’s in my pocket. I’ll run it through more tests tomorrow but so far I can say a hard case is the way to go or at least a hard case where the PBP’s button etc can’t get triggered.

Would you mind posting a link to the case you ordered?
