A new website named, oddly enough, the BlackAirPods.store, claims they can perform magic for you, creating a sleek pair of the much-desired black AirPods for just $99. You supply the AirPods.
For just $99 dollars, you can send in your AirPods and within about three days (shipping time not included), the company will have complete what they are calling “a three-phase approach” that “yields a luxurious scratch-resistant finish.”
If you haven’t been able to get your hands on a pair of AirPods, they say they can supply a pair of Apple’s popular wireless earbuds and apply their custom process to them for just $249 total. That’s $90 more than the price of the normal pair of earbuds purchased from Apple.
The company doesn’t explain exactly how their process works, or what makes the new finish so durable. And as far as we know, none have been seen in the wild, but…
At BlackPods, we’ve developed a proprietary coating system specifically for Apple’s AirPods. Our three-phase approach yields a luxurious scratch-resistant finish. BlackPods are the perfect complement to any Black, Jet Black, or Space Gray iPhone.
Every pair of customized AirPods we produce is hand-finished by a team of skilled artisans in Brooklyn, NY. Whether you purchase them through us or send yours in, each pair of AirPods is subjected to a rigorous visual and quality inspection.
A Leap of Faith
If you’ve been wanting a pair of black AirPods, (and who hasn’t?), you can take a chance and send them your AirPods. Hopefully, you’ll get them back in a week or so, in a lovely shade of ebony. (We can’t vouch for them, so any risk you take is totally on you.) Let us know if you take the leap of faith, and we’ll let you all know if we hear anything else.

Before you go, one other option for those of you who’d prefer your AirPods to be any color but white, visit the Slickwraps website. They offer a number of different styled “wraps” for AirPods, and they’re only $14.95.
