AirPods have been making my life easier since November 2020. They’re useful for listening to audiobooks/music and for taking calls when my hands aren’t free. They make mundane chores, like tidying up, washing dishes, and folding laundry, bearable. My workouts are more enjoyable too. No more wires! I didn’t invest much time looking for a case when I first acquired them, but now that everyone’s talking about going back to society full time, protecting them would be a prudent move.
