For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with French designer brand Hadoro to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a set of custom carbon fiber AirPods.

For those not familiar with Hadoro, it's a site that makes high-end custom iPhones, AirPods, and iPhone cases from luxury materials. Pricing on these custom devices ranges from 400 euros to over 5000 euros, so they're not for everyone, but Hadoro certainly has some unique designs you won't see anywhere else.

Hadoro's custom carbon fiber AirPods will appeal to anyone who is hoping Apple will release a future version of the ‌AirPods‌ in black. Hadoro's ‌AirPods‌, priced at 650 euros, use carbon fiber, known for being ultra strong and ultra light.

hadoro2
To create the carbon fiber ‌AirPods‌, Hadoro engineers disassemble the original ‌AirPods‌ case while keeping all of the interior components intact. New assembly parts for the case are meticulously carved from three solid blocks of carbon fiber.

Because Hadoro is creating its own shell for the ‌AirPods‌ case, it features a unique stepped look at the top and bottom with milled notches and an overall elliptical cylinder shape. A subtle "H" for Hadoro is carved into the front.

hadoro4
Hadoro designed the ‌AirPods‌ case to have a unique graphite finish with a visible fiber weave pattern and a matte surface, while the actual ‌AirPods‌ inside are coated with a deep black scratch-resistant soft-touch finish.

hadoro5
When the creation process is finished, Hadoro's engineers extensively test the ‌AirPods‌ to make sure full functionality is intact before sending the custom earbuds off to customers. All ‌AirPods‌ features, including the quick pairing, automatic ear detection, and gesture support remain functional, and the Lightning port, pairing button, and hinge all work as normal.

Beautiful finish. Not for me at those prices, for a device with short life span, but I see why people would buy them.

Why is carbon fiber so ugly? Does it always have to have that pattern?
