The Catalyst Waterproof Airpods Case prevents it from costing you another $160.
The $25 rubber case doesn't look like much, but it's just enough to save your precious buds from a drop in the toilet, an unexpected downpour, or just about anywhere else you might get them wet. Plus, it's also an easy way to carry your 'Pods.
The case covers your AirPods holder just like any other silicone case you've ever used for a smartphone or tablet. You slip it on like a sock, first folding it outward before rolling it back over the body of your holder.
The case itself is IP68 certified, meaning it can handle a drop from 4 feet and can also be submerged in water as deep as 3.3 feet — about the same as a Galaxy S7 smartphone. It's plenty of protection for the average user.
Other nice touches are the detachable carabiner that makes it easy to hang the AirPods from a bag or keychain ring. It also has a hole in the bottom so you'll still have access to your lightning connector.
The Catalyst Waterproof Airpods Case comes in six colors: Blueridge Sunset, Frost White, Slate Gray, Deep Plum, Army Green, and Glow-in-the-Dark.
