ColorWare is a customization company that's been offering custom painted devices, electronics, and accessories for many years. ColorWare provides unique painting options and skins for everything from consoles to iPhones to earbuds like the AirPods.

Custom-colored third-generation AirPods can be purchased from ColorWare for $319 for just the AirPods, or $369 for the AirPods and the Wireless Charging Case together. There's a premium price tag for ordering from ColorWare, but it's the only way to get AirPods in a color other than white because Apple doesn't offer alternate color options like black.

ColorWare offers both solid and metallic color options, with gloss and matte finishes to top it off. You can get the traditional black, gold, or silver colors to match Apple's devices, but there are also colors in every shade of the rainbow. If you want AirPods in yellow, orange, teal, green, deep purple, blue, pink, or one of dozens of other colors, ColorWare is the company to go with.

ColorWare even has an Illusion finish for the AirPods in multi-chrome colors that shift depending on the lighting in the room, and a holographic black glitter SuperNova version.

Each AirPod can be custom painted in the same color as the case or you can order the case and the earbuds all in different colors, so there are tons of color combinations to choose from.

ColorWare has been offering custom painted devices since 1998, so the company has perfected the painting process. ColorWare uses a multi-step coating process that includes a primer, the application of a proprietary color formula, and an X2 liquid plastic coating that protects the color. The custom painting is guaranteed for 12 months or 24 months with the purchase of an additional warranty.

ColorWare uses standard AirPods from Apple and paints them, which leaves the full AirPods functionality intact. There's an H1 chip for quick and easy pairing, and spatial audio with dynamic head tracking, Adaptive EQ, and more.

If I were a rich person, I would totally spring for this. They look great. I'd probably go matte black. But if I were rich, maybe I'd get a second set in a "fun" color.

They look really nice in these pictures.
I wonder if the paint starches off after a period of time, especially the part that goes inside the ear?

Wow, Facebook and Instragram are requiring logins to even view company pages now. I guess Zuckerberg felt they weren't being actively evil enough - they needed to up their game.
