AirPods, or the more expensive AirPods Pro, are visible almost everywhere. Ever since its inception, the widely popular device has changed how many of us listen to music. But apart from helping develop the TWS industry, these earpieces also gave rise to an accessory market filled with options. You can find products that aim to improve how they fit or sound, help keep them charged, protect them from damage, or increase their usability with help from wireless transmitters.
So if you have recently bought a pair of AirPods Pro and are looking for items that could help improve your user experience, this list will help you do just that as it includes what we think are the best accessories and cases you should buy for your device.

MightySkins for AirPods Pro

BRG Silicone Case
By adding this accessory over your AirPods Pro Case, you can maintain its compact form factor while protecting it from scuffs and accidental falls. These can be found in a variety of color options to allow some personalization.
ESR Clear Case
Clear cases commonly exist in the form of hard plastic shells, but this TPU option will allow you to protect your gadget from scuffs, maintain the stark white look of your AirPods and add protection against impacts.
SupCase Unicorn Beetle Pro
With a two-piece design that combines a hard plastic shell and TPU, the UB Pro is an option perfect for harsh rocky terrain. Its included carabiner has an easy-to-remove design and gels well with the variety of available color options. The company also states that the case will work with any wireless charger and won't need removal to use the feature.
Spigen Rugged Armor
While a traditional silicone case can protect against falls and prevent minor damage if you're a user who spends a lot of time outdoors, a rugged option can go a long way by absorbing a much higher level of impact. This option from Spigen will add that exact type of protection to your AirPods.
Twelve South AirSnap Pro
While the other case options listed focus primarily on protection and not on their looks, this leather option from Twelve South will provide you with a case that can make your device feel more luxurious while adding a degree of protection.
Catalyst Waterproof Case
This option from Catalyst does what many other cases cannot do, which is to protect your AirPods against water damage. While the earbuds themselves are IPX4 rated, its case doesn't have a rating and is susceptible to water damage. With this accessory, you may be able to minimize the risk of a liquid harming your gadget.
Read ahead to see some of our ideas on how you may combine some of the accessories listed here or which ones you should get to improve your user experience or safeguard your purchase.
For better fit and audio quality
If you’re looking to improve the fit and audio quality received from the AirPods, we recommend pairing either of the mentioned ear hooks with the foam tips. As indicated by the profiles above, the ear hooks will help keep with increased friction, and the foam will expand to form a better seal.
For those who travel
Next, if you find yourself in airplanes frequently, the Twelve South AirFly Pro is a versatile gadget that will help you make the most of your AirPods Pro and its ANC feature when on a flight. The foam tips can once again play a significant role in ensuring a good seal, so perhaps you may pair the two.
If traveling includes outdoor excursions, you should also pick AirPods Pro cases from SUPCASE, Spigen, or Catalyst, as these options can add a layer of water or shock resistance to your AirPods case because Apple only rates the earbuds to have an IPX4 rating. The case, on the other hand, is susceptible to water damage.
