I love my new Apple AirPod Max headphones but I am not a fan of the included Smart case. Apple took the time and effort to create great sounding beautiful headphones but sadly made a misstep on the case.
Included Apple AirPod Max Case
The Apple case resembles a purse and does a poor job protecting the expensive headphones. The included case offers no storage for chargers or cables. I immediately knew that I wanted to replace the case and in researching available options, I learned that many others felt the same way as I did. I made a list of the key features that I wanted in a replacement case:
– The ability to hold and fully protect the AirPods Max with or without a Smart Case
– Made of a sturdy material
– A means to trigger low power mode to preserve battery life
– A pocket or enclosure to fit an Apple Power Adapter, charging cable, and headphone cords
– Offer a handle for carrying
After looking at available options, I found the WaterField Designs AirPods Max Shield Case. Their refined and professional-looking case protects the headphones in or out of the Apple Smart Case, preserves battery life, allows in-case charging, and stows accessories.
The case comes in a variety of colors and materials: black ballistic nylon with premium, full-grain leather in black, blue, or crimson to tan waxed canvas with distressed, full-grain, chocolate leather.
– Compact and custom-fitted to hold and protect AirPods Max with or without a Smart Case.
– Innovative Magnetic Leather Butterfly keeps ear cups separated and triggers AirPods Max low power mode to preserve battery life. The Butterfly lies flat when headphones are stowed with the Apple Smart Case.
– Zip-around closure with dual zipper sliders allows for in-case charging.
Top and bottom layers of closed-cell foam help disperse external forces and resist compression.
– Plush lining backed with additional soft foam keeps AirPods Max scratch-free.
– Stretch mesh pocket with a leather closure utilizes negative interior space to fit a 5W to 20W Apple Power Adapter and charging and headphone cords.
– Plush-lined exterior zippered pocket keeps extra cords, AirPods Pro, or other small electronic accessories readily accessible.
– Open-topped, stretch mesh, rear pocket stows an iPhone, and/or additional accessories.
– Top nylon loop facilitates a quick grab when carrying the case solo and hooks onto a carabiner for attaching to a strap or stashing the case inside another bag.
– Rugged black ballistic nylon or waxed canvas paired with full-grain leather and smooth waterproof zippers help protect headphones from the elements.
