    I got the airpods yesterday brand new... and.. surprise the front part of the charging case has a lot of hairline scratches ONLY the front smh. but everything else is brand new even the smell of the box and earpods themselves, never dropped it should i replace it or no?

    heard apple don't provide warranty for cosmetics/Physical damage. but it did arrive with the scratch in it. so idk

    That is completely up to you. Hairline scratches will happen over time anyway, they really are unavoidable. If it’s the fact that the scratches were there right out of the box that is driving you crazy, then I’d say try to get them exchanged. If you don’t at least try to see if Apple will help you out, that might drive you even more crazy than the hairline scratches themselves down the road. Give it a go, what do you have to lose? The worse they could say is no.

    Apple charged you a premium for the Airpods, these aren't $12 use-and-throws found at the mall kiosk. So hold them accountable to deliver a product up to your satisfaction. If not satisfied, return them..

    Apple said contact where i bought it from. Hopefully they will replace this. it triggers my OCD especially right out of the box

    Luckily i have 14 days to return it. The down side is. if they said i scratched it on purpose, i mean why would i do that. LOL

    So return them before the 14 days are up and buy another set from somewhere else

    Yeah get them changed. For the price don’t accept poor quality out of the box.
