AirPods, Apple’s tiny wireless headphones, still aren’t in stock most places, and online orders still take six weeks to arrive, but that hasn’t stopped the third-party accessory market from piling on with unnecessary gadgets.
Since AirPods were first announced, there has been an almost irrational fear of losing AirPods. That’s partially because depending on your ear shape, the buds could fall out while on a jog. And if you DO lose an AirPod, it’s a cool $70 to buy a replacement bud. That’s probably why almost immediately some enterprising people already created a wire to connect AirPods together. Totally wireless might be a liability none of us can afford.
