What you need to know
- You can now order custom AirPods 3 direct from ColorWare starting at $319.
- Buyers can have each AirPod and the Charging Case finished in different colors if they want.
Anyone keen to pick up a pair of AirPods that stand out from the crowd is in luck with ColorWare now offering the third-generation AirPods with prices starting from $319. That'll get you a custom pair of AirPods in just about any color you choose, but you'll pay an extra $50 if you want the Charging Case, too.
If there's a color you can think of there is a good chance ColorWare can offer it and the adventurous out there can even choose to get each AirPod and the Charging Case in three different colors. Considering Apple only offers AirPods in white, there is a ton of room to stand out from the crowd.
ColorWare says that all of the AirPods 3 features remain despite the earbuds being taken apart and re-assembled — the application of new paint does not impact the AirPods at all. Apart from making them the best-looking AirPods ever, of course.

Apple's third-generation AirPods come with a new look and new Charging Case, making them a great option for anyone looking for AirPods Pro-like features without paying AirPods Pro-like money. Just don't expect to get quite the same level of functionality — those savings have to come from somewhere, after all.
ColorWare is offering its custom AirPods 3 as of right now and you can learn more on its website, too.
