With AirPods making up an estimated 60 percent of the entire global wireless headphones market and Apple's Wearables category alone bigger than over half of the companies in the Fortune 500, it's safe to assume that you probably own a pair. In fact, it's highly likely that you're wearing a pair right now. Unless, that is, you left them on the counter of your local coffee shop, bar, [insert literally any public space here].
It happens all too much. According to studies, around 17 percent of AirPods owners have lost one or both of their precious earphones before. While we've had more than enough time to get acquainted with the world of wireless tech, for some reason it's still not a habit to put our AirPods back in their case when we're done or, for that matter, put the case back in our pocket.
Sure, there are ways to relocate your lost AirPods digitally, but why not solve the problem at its source? Let's try to not lose our AirPods in the first place by putting them inside a luxury AirPods case. From Bottega Veneta to Jil Sander, the scourge of lost AirPods has touched us all, so accept some high-end help and look good while doing it with the best AirPods cases of the season.
