In addition, there is a slot on the inside that can store a power adapter.

If you have been tracking Apple product launches recently, you might be aware of the AirPods Max headphone and the Smart Cover case that it comes with. It is worth noting that the cover case, in particular, got a lot of flak on the internet upon launch and was made fun of because it looked like a brassiere. Many even said that they might not carry the cover case when they are traveling. Some of them said that they don't really protect the AirPods Max. 

However, in less than two weeks, the headphones now have its first-ever third-party accessory coming from Waterfield Designs. And it looks like a cover case that Apple should have introduced at the first place.

Waterfield Designs’ AirPods Max Shield Case is a clamshell cover that can house the entire headphone and not just the ear cups like the original Smart Case. It has a leather exterior and a foam cover on the inside, along with a plush interior for your high-end headphones. In addition, there is a waterproof zipper on the outside to carry some extra accessories such as the charging cable.

In addition, there is a slot on the inside that can store a power adapter. What's interesting is that the case can house the AirPods Max with or without the original Smart Case.

Also, there is a set of magnetic ‘butterfly wings’ that sits between the two ear cups and prevents them from hitting one another during travel. Like Apple's Smart Case, these wings put the headphone into an ultra-low power mode in order to conserve battery.

You can get Waterfield Designs’ new AirPods Max shield case at $99 in the US. The shipping will begin from December 31. You can get it in Waxed Canvas and Brown Chocolate Leather or Ballistic Nylon and Black, Blue or Crimson Leather.
