For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with ColorWare to give MacRumors readers a chance to win a set of custom-painted AirPods, which are available in dozens of different colors.

ColorWare is a company that's been around for quite some time, offering custom paint jobs and unique skins for a range of electronic devices. AirPods can be ordered from ColorWare in custom colors for a fee of $299, with an additional $40 fee to paint the case a matching shade.

At $299 (or $349 with the case), there's a premium for choosing AirPods from ColorWare, but ColorWare is the only site that offers one-of-a-kind color options you can't get anywhere else.

ColorWare's AirPods can be ordered in one of several solid or metallic colors, with both gloss and matte finishes available. Traditional black, gold, silver, and gray shades are options, but there are also a several bright shades in every color of the rainbow. If you want AirPods in teal, red, green, purple, or pink, ColorWare is the way to go.

You can choose to have both AirPods custom painted in the same color along with the case, or you can get each AirPod and the case all in different colors, meaning there are quite a few available color combinations.

ColorWare has been custom-painting devices since 1998 and has had a lot of time to perfect the painting process. The company uses a coating process that includes a primer, an application of a proprietary color formula, and an X2 liquid plastic coating that protects the new color.

Because ColorWare is using traditional AirPods, full AirPods functionality is intact, with a W1 chip for easy pairing, a long battery life, a built-in accelerometer for ear detection, iCloud support for quick device switching, and support for gestures.

We have one set of custom-painted AirPods and Charging Case to give away, with the winner to choose the color and finish of their choice. We've also teamed up with ColorWare to offer MacRumors readers an exclusive 30 percent discount on all iPhone, iPad, and Mac skins, which is a more affordable way to get a fresh device color.

Just received mine this week. Can vouch for their excellent work! And matte black AirPods are spectacular. Free would’ve been great but I’m still thrilled.

What does the matte finish look like once covered in ear wax?
Only a little skin oil after having them in. Wipes off with a finger but they include an alcohol wipe. ColorWare sells a little bottle of “ColorClean” for $10, but a ColorWare rep told me that a soft cloth moistened with isopropyl alcohol would also be fine. If you’re worried you’d clog them with ear wax, I recommend dealing with your ear wax problem first and then wearing your new, awesome, fingerprint-resistant, matte AirPods.

Okay so the USA and Canada then!
Not much use to the rest of the world is it?
Navigating the legal waters for the entire world is hardly feasible.
