Some cowboy hackers wear white, but some insist on going black.
Now you too can differentiate yourself from the masses of
sheeple people wearing the plain white . A site called BlackPods -- in no way affiliated with Apple -- sells custom-painted versions of the popular in-ear wireless headphones.
For $279 it'll sell you the standard "classic" version in a high-gloss finish (above), or a flatter satin finish for a cool $299. Both include the trademark AirPod case in the same color.
BlackPods also offers a custom painting service for $99. Send in your white AirPods, and it'll turn 'em black.
Apple's standard white AirPods go for $159, and aren't (yet) available in any other color. They're still backordered for six weeks at Apple.com, but Best Buy is shipping them sooner. The ship time for a pair of BlackPods is two weeks.
