Leading up to the launch of the AirPods 2, many held out hope for the launch of a black color option for Apple’s popular wireless headphones.
Black AirPods have been on the wishlist of many since the launch of the original AirPods. In fact, early mockups by designer Martin Hajek showed what they might look like back in 2016.
The first actual word of Black AirPods came only in February from MySmartPrice which claimed to have heard from “trusted” sources that the new AirPods would come with better bass response, a matte finish, and come in both white and black colors. That report was later corroborated by an Economic Daily News report which also claimed a new surface coating, wireless charging, and a black color option. However, it may be that that report could have been sourced from the original MySmartPrice report.
