Released last December, AirPods are currently only available in white on the Apple Online Store. For the moment, Apple does not plan to offer new variants. If you don’t like white so much and want custom headphones, ColorWare offers apple wireless headphones in 58 colors.
Founded in the early 2000s, ColorWare specializes in changing the color of existing products, including smartphones, game consoles and computers. Its customization solutions are aimed at both individuals and professionals. The company was one of the first to distribute iPods in other colors.
In the United States, Cupertino wireless headphones are sold for $ 159 (€ 179 in France). By customizing them at ColorWare, it will cost $ 289, or $ 130 more. To change the color of the complete kit, that is to say with the charging box, the invoice amounts to 319 dollars.
The company justifies these costs by the difficulty of the personalization process. She explains that the AirPods must first be disassembled before painting the hull. For the time being, the service is not intended for users who already have the famous apple headphones. Indeed, ColorWare is supplied directly from Apple to then resell units of different colors.
