WaterField Designs announces AirPods Max Shield Case

WaterField Designs has announced the AirPods Max Shield Case, a full-grain leather case for Apple’s new AirPods Max over-the-ear headphones. 

 A Magnetic Leather Butterfly acts as a buffer between the ear cups and triggers the AirPods Max into low-power mode. When used in conjunction with the Apple Smart Case, the magnets lie flat. Space-efficient pockets stow cords and accessories, and a soft interior cradles the AirPods Max.  Rugged materials, shock-absorbing foam, and waterproof zippers help protect the prized headphones, says WaterField Designs owner Gary Waterfield. 

Here are the features of the AirPods Max Shield Case:

  • Compact and custom-fitted to hold and protect AirPods Max with or without a Smart Case
  • Innovative Magnetic Leather Butterfly keeps ear cups separated and triggers AirPods Max low power mode to preserve battery life; The Butterfly lies flat when headphones are stowed with the Apple Smart Case
  • Zip-around closure with dual zipper sliders allows for in-case charging
  • Top and bottom layers of closed-cell foam help disperse external forces and resist compression
  • Plush lining, as soft as a puppy’s ear, backed with additional soft foam keeps AirPods Max scratch-free
  • Stretch mesh pocket with a leather closure utilizes negative interior space to fit a 5W to 20W Apple Power Adapter and charging and headphone cords
  • Plush-lined exterior zippered pocket keeps extra cords, AirPods Pro, or other small electronic accessories readily accessible
  • Open-topped, stretch mesh, rear pocket stows an iPhone, and/or additional accessories
  • Top nylon loop facilitates a quick grab when carrying the case solo and hooks onto a carabiner for attaching to a strap or stashing the case inside another bag
  • Rugged black ballistic nylon or waxed canvas paired with full-grain leather and smooth waterproof zippers help protect headphones from the elements

The AirPods Max Shield Case cos US$99. It’s available in black ballistic nylon with full-grain leather in black, blue, or crimson; or tan waxed canvas with distressed, full-grain, chocolate leather. It measures 9.5 x 9 (at widest points) x 2.25 inches and weighs 14.5 ounces.
