Here you go...
Unless you want it directly from the factory.

There's a kind of a huge difference in wanting AirPods in black and wanting to pay a huge premium from Colorware. Imo, AirPods should at least be in black and red already.

How about some focus on less glamorous "innovation" like the fact that 40-50% of the time the right or left bud doesn't pair (requiring you to put them back in the case and try again, usually once, sometimes twice), and the fact that when you put them back in the case you really don't know if they've started charging unless you check with your iphone/mac (and if you forget then many times you want to go for a run and have a dead earbud... thank goodness I have my rock solid Jabra 65s as a backup... the Pro was supposed to be an "upgrade")... and though YMMV there are *lots* of folks with this issue on the Apple boards and various threads

But I guess magical colors are far more important

Agreed.

I'm a stickler. I recognize all of the benefits of having AirPods but I refuse to get them until they come out in black. And there's no way I'm paying a markup for 3rd party company to paint them black.

I can't think of any logical reason as to why Apple hasn't come out with black AirPods yet. Not only will more people buy them, some people will buy multiple pairs of AirPods in different colors. It's easy money for Apple.


Apple never changed the color of their EarPods and they’ll never change the color of their AirPods.

AirPods are not in the same category as EarPods. EarPods were a cheap accessory that needed to accompany the more important devices Apple wanted to sell. There was never a market for EarPods. They were just cheap headphones Apple included in the box of whatever devices you purchase.

AirPods are legitimate product unto themselves. This will become even more apparent as AirPods add more features.

Plus, there are already plenty of competing wireless earbuds as well as copycat/fake AirPods. Sure, when AirPods came out, there were only popular wireless earbud solution. It made sense for Apple to keep them white as symbol and selling point. But I'd argue that it no longer holds the value it once had. Just having a white wireless device doesn't automatically mean that everyone else will think you're wearing AirPods.
