This is interesting… I’ve heard of the Klipsch brand before but don’t know much about them. They seem to be doing something pretty cool with the actual casing of their wireless buds, going for a Zippo lighter type feel.
I think this is really cool.
AirPods are clearly a good product, since everyone that has them raves about them, but I happen to think the charging case is awfully designed, and looks like a pack of dental floss. I’m sure it’s very functional but I think the aesthetic is horrible.
I myself own Pixel Buds, and while the charging case is probably a bit more faffy than the AirPods, it has a nice soft touch fabric aesthetic which I find quite charming and comfortable :
I think Klipsch are perhaps onto something here, and a lightweight, dark metal Zippo style casing could be the way forward aesthetically.
For those of you who are interested in this sort of thing, which style would you prefer? Bear in mind we aren’t talking about the actual earbuds here, just the casing.
- Plastic-style, like Apple
- Fabric-style, like Google
- Metal-style, like Klipsch
- Other (explain in a reply!)
