Capra Leather is a Colombia-based company that makes a range of handmade leather accessories, including cases for the iPad and MacBook, as well as magnetic wallets for the iPhone 12, for over 100 countries around the world. One of Capra’s latest products is an alternative to the AirPods Max Smart Case, which seeks to address some of the criticisms that have been leveled at Apple’s own case that comes with its over-ear headphones.
Capra Leather’s AirPods Max case is designed to safely store AirPods Max when they are not in use, and contains a pair of neodymium magnets, just like Apple’s Smart Case, to put the headphones into their ultra-low power mode to preserve battery life. Unlike Apple’s case, the Capra Leather case covers almost the entirety of AirPods Max, including the headband, for much better overall protection. My Capra Leather AirPods Max case is in tan, but it is also available in black, dark brown, navy, and green.
Capra’s leather is fairly soft and supple, but thick and sturdy enough that I feel the case would protect my AirPods Max adequately during travel, and certainly better than when put in Apple’s Smart Case. The design does not waste space and is as compact as you could reasonably expect a protective case for the AirPods Max to be.
