We have all been there. You're out and about with your earphones and one momentary lapse in concentration, and they are on the floor or in a puddle, or they have fallen into your freshly made mug of tea – that last one may be just us, admittedly.


And with earphones, and AirPods in particular, not being as cheap and cheerful as they once were, buying a reliable case that you can count on will be a must and you are spoilt for choice with the number of different ones that are available.

To help you narrow down your search field, we have taken a look at many of the AirPod cases that are on the market now, and we have come up with what we think are 6 of the best that you can currently buy to make sure that your AirPods stay safe when you are at home or out and about.

6 of the best USB C cables to buy

NeotrixQI AirPods Case

Best low-cost premium product

Sometimes an item being cheap does not mean that you are buying something inferior, and that is very much the case with the AirPods case made by NeotrixQI, and they are so cheap you may well end up buying more than one!

Bumps, drops, scratches, dirt, shocks and every other potential incident that could be harmful to your AirPods will no longer be something you will need to be concerned about, and the premium and durable silicone it is made from will give you peace of mind.

And you do not even have to take the AirPods out to charge them as it can be done while they are safely stored away.
