Elago Launches New AW6 Case for AirPods Themed After Apple's iPod

Accessory maker Elago is back this week with a new product announcement, this time for Apple's AirPods. The new AW6 Case fits the original ‌AirPods‌ and ‌AirPods‌ 2 (not AirPods Pro), and has Apple's signature click wheel emblazoned on its front, designed to look like the iPod.


The AW6 Case is made of silicone and will help protect the ‌AirPods‌ Case from scratches and drops. Besides the click wheel, Elago's case even includes details like the iPod Classic's hold switch on the top of the case.


There are two colors, including White and Black, and Elago's case allows the front-facing LED of the ‌AirPods‌ Wireless Charging Case to be visible. The case has a cutout for the Lightning port, and it also supports wireless charging on any Qi-compatible mat.


Last month, Elago launched an ‌AirPods‌ case that was themed after the original Macintosh, and the company is also known for its Apple Watch stands that resemble the iPod, Mac, and an original Nintendo Game Boy.

Elago's AW6 Case for ‌AirPods‌ is available on the company's website and on Amazon for $11.99. On Amazon you can also buy a version that includes an attached carabiner for $12.99.

Getting a case for your case is a little silly... that can't just be me, right?

It would be cool if the buttons were actually functional and worked as a bluetooth remote to the iPhone or something. Otherwise, this is stupid.

Well in my case, a laptop bag that's cavernous enough for a second laptop, iPad, random junk, and AirPods 2 and BeatsX (both in cases).

My AirPods Pro currently go in my AirPods Pocket in my jeans only because I don't yet have a case for the case. So I can carry while I carry.

Well obviously the best way to carry your airpods is incased in apple's charging case that's incased in the non-apple, ipod case which is of course incased in a (not yet designed) briefcase that looks like an iPad. That'd look sharp! ...although the briefcase would probably be prone to scuffing... I hope somebody will make a case to put the briefcase in.

This is only slightly less pointless than the other thing they released.

True. I get the "skin" appeal for differentiation, but I think the term "case" is funny. Reminds me of the old xzibit meme.


Yo dawg, I get what you're saying, but not everyone puts their AirPods in their jeans' AirPods Pocket.

Some people put them in their bag, so it's a case in a case in a case, so you can carry what you carry while you carry.

Never thought of it as a case inside a case, lol... but maybe if your in a household where more than 1 person has a pair, it would help to differentiate. Plus it adds some personality to a bland-looking product.

RIP iPod. One of the best pieces of consumer tech ever made. If I had AirPods I wouldn't mind picking one of these up. I like to keep my white Apple stuff shiny and smooth if possible.
