    Twelve South today revealed its latest Apple accessory called the "AirSnap," which is a case made for AirPods and aimed at making the wireless headphones easier to keep handy thanks to an attached metal clip.

    AirSnap is made from full-grain leather and helps to protect both the AirPods and AirPods case while on-the-go. The bottom of the case has a cutout so that you don't have to remove the AirPods from the AirSnap to charge them.

    Twelve South says one of the main features of AirSnap is the carabiner style metal clip:
    Those interested can purchase AirSnap from TwelveSouth's website for $29.99 in Deep Teal and Black, and a Cognac version is available to pre-order and should ship the week of August 6.

    The AirSnap follows the launch of Twelve South's last product, which was also designed for AirPods, called "AirFly." That accessory acts as an adapter so that you can use AirPods (or any Bluetooth headphones) where only wired headphone jacks are available, like on a plane, at the gym, or with the Nintendo Switch.

    This is what I use. It attaches to the strap of my Tenba MBP/mirrorless camera bag, but I imagine it would fit other bags quite well. When I'm out shooting I use it as a spare battery holder. $10 and blends in well on most darker bags: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00O2WHL4A/

    This looks nice though. For a while I had a crappy silicone one with a carabiner and it felt like it was going to come off all the time. It's kinda nice that you can charge this one while it's still in the case, but I kinda prefer mine if it's on the outside of the bag because I don't want water getting into that lightning port on the bottom if I'm suddenly caught in a rainstorm. Anyone know if there is any waterproofing on the AirPods case like the iPhone has?

    It's a trick because then I'll need another case to put this into. :D

    I'm not a fan of hanging or dangling things. It looks like it has issues opening. If it had more of a flap than a tight fit and also used a clip, I might get one.

    Maybe for you but some people like me want to fully protect their Plastic Charging cases from scratches and keep them on things like keychains.

    You TOO can be a dork with your very own AirPods leather case wrap just for the low price of $29.99.

    Reminds me of those who clip their phones to their belts.

    Something like that existed for quite some time already. A simple search on Amazon revealed a lot of these products for under $15. So no way in hell will I pay $30 for a leather product!

    Lucrin makes one as well.

    https://www.lucrin.com/apple/earphones/airpods-leather-case.htm

    If I was to get an Airpods case, it would be one of these. I have a few of their watch bands for my Apple Watch and they are great. You can choose the type of leather, the color, and contrasting stitching.

    What I want to know is where is the wireless charging case for the Airpods that Apple promised, what, over a year ago?? o_Oo_Oo_O

    Leaving your AirPods hanging from your purse, backpack....etc. Sounds like a thief's dream come true.

    Looks like a pair of balls in a bag. Swinging from ya jeans belt ring you’ll look quite the catch. And when they hear the price you paid they’ll be all over you.

    When I look at this, all I think about is those old men who put their phones in leather cases and clip them onto their belts. Not a good look.
