A new website, creatively named BlackAirPods.store, is claiming that they can give you black AirPods for as little as $99.
For just $99 dollars, you can send in your AirPods and within about three days (shipping time not included), the company will have complete what they are calling “a three-phase approach” that “yields a luxurious scratch-resistant finish.”
If you don’t have your own pair of AirPods, you can buy a pair of black AirPods for $249 directly from them. That’s a $90 premium over the cost of AirPods directly from Apple.
What makes them scratch resistant is still unknown, and the company isn’t really giving out much information. In fact, we have yet to see an actual pair of black AirPods done by this proprietary method, but the website claims that “every pair of customized AirPods we produce is hand-finished by a team of skilled artisans in Brooklyn, NY.”
Of course, the idea of black AirPods is incredibly attractive, especially if they can actually hold up to everyday abuse.
If you’re willing to take the risk and see if this process is actually legit, head over to the company’s website here. We’ll keep you updated if we hear anything new.
