ColorWare is Now Selling Apple's AirPods in 58 Colors if You're Willing to Pay $289

ColorWare, a company that custom paints Apple products, today announced that it is now accepting orders for Apple's AirPods, which can be purchased from the site in range of different colors.

For $289, a $130 premium over the $159 price of the AirPods, ColorWare will paint them in one of 58 different shades, from solids to metallics in every color of the rainbow. A deep glossy black is also an option, giving customers who have been wanting a "Jet Black" set of AirPods a way to get it.

Each AirPod can be painted in a different shade, and for an extra $30, ColorWare will also paint the AirPod Charging Case. Along with a custom color, users can also choose a matte or gloss finish, for a set of AirPods that are totally unique.

To paint various products, ColorWare fully disassembles them and carefully custom paints each individual component. On its Twitter account, ColorWare says developing a process for the AirPods was "FAR from easy."


The total price for a fully customized set of AirPods plus case is $319, which is about double the price of a plain white set of AirPods purchased from Apple. In addition to shelling out quite a bit of money for a custom set, those who order AirPods from ColorWare will also need to wait for approximately six weeks for their order to arrive. ColorWare often lets customers send in their own devices to be painted, but this isn't currently an option with the AirPods.

Because $319 is a lot of money to shell out for an accessory, ColorWare does offer paint samples so users can test colors out before placing an order. Each set of three paint samples costs $15.

All ColorWare work is guaranteed for 12 months, and 24 months with the purchase of an additional warranty. Returns are available for the first 30 days but are subject to a 25 percent restocking fee.

ColorWare paints a range of devices, from iMacs and MacBooks to Apple accessories like the Magic Keyboard and the Magic Mouse 2. The company also paints other accessories, like game consoles and headphones (including Beats), plus it offers a range of skins for products like the MacBook and iPhone.

300 bucks... for a colour? The sad thing is, there are some people dumb enough to pay that.
Just because someone finds value in something that you do not doesn't mean they're dumb, does it?

I am rich, but I do not want anyone to notice that I spend some much money for this so I am just going to ask them to paint it the same white color as the original one... just because I can afford it /s

No. It's $130 "for a color". The $289 price includes the AirPods. Ironic that you call other people dumb.

#howtowaste$130 Sorry but so many better things one can spend $130 bucks on unless you are rich, but then I guess you probably have money to waste. Though, donating to a charity still seems like it would make more sense for humanity. Just sayin.

How people choose to spend their money is their own business.
Unless you donate all your spare cash to charity, you're in no position to judge. Especially if you have an iDevice or Mac released in the last 3 years - you could have continued to use a perfectly good older model, or a generic Android/PC, and given your money to the benefit of humanity instead of selfishly buying an unnecessary luxury.

So, you first.
