Way back when in this post I mentioned that I solved the thick earbud case problem by using a thin zip sturdy case. but I never got around to posting a picture. Here it is!
The reason I thought about it is today's new AirPods 2 announcement. I'd really love to upgrade to these AirPods but the case is so damn thick it would be an inconvenience for me to travel with as part of my standard set.
