Gorgeous Renders Imagine Apple AirPods in High-Gloss Jet Black [PICS]


Designer Martin Hajek is no stranger to imagining concepts for Apple products, and his latest images showcase the company’s new AirPods in high-gloss Jet Black.

Hajek poses the question of how come the AirPods did not come in black this year? What we do know is the Jet Black process is extremely complex and costly to manufacture. If we are to get a new colour for AirPods, expect that to come in future generations.

For now, we are stuck with white AirPods, which, according to early press reviews, actually sound great and will stay in your ears during exercise.

Below are some images of a Jet Black AirPods imagined by Hajek—check them out and let us know what you think:

Apple’s AirPods will launch later in October, priced at $219 CAD ($159 USD). Who’s getting a pair? Do you think we’ll see them in black, sometime soon?

    I will never admit to the words “gorgeous” and “AirPods” in the same sentence. 😛

  • Lol

    Nothing wrong with wearing match sticks in your ear, right? 😛

    But seriously, I think it’s a shame Apple don’t produce more of their accessories in different colours, or at least black and white. The Pencil, the Magic Mouse and Keyboard, their cables and chargers, etc.

    You know Apple…they need something for people to buy next year 😉

    Gross, uninspired, Steveless…

    Hey took images into photoshop and changed the colour. Hardly anything to get excited/care about. This guy is and always will be, a muppet.

  • I love the idea of these, but I really wish they also made them in the rubber tube style headphones as well. For me sound isolation is key, so these are not even in my scope for headphones, despite how cool I think they are.

  • That’s not a Photoshop colour change. It would be incredibly difficult to realistically change the look from white to gloss black in Photoshop. This is a new 3D render.

    If this were a Photoshop colour change, then hats off to him ’cause this guy would have mad skills!

  • FragilityG4

    That’s beside the point. The point is this guy is a hack and I hate seeing his garbage depicted as works of art.

  • Mamba

    Hear, hear!

    He is simply showing how they would look in gloss black, obviously not creating a new product. The renderings were done from scratch and takes a lot of skill, hardly a PS “color change”. If you’re going to discredit someone, at least have a clue.

  • FragilityG4

    Again, I don’t like anything this guy does so whenever I see his name cringe. Sure of course it takes long to do, much like anything, doesn’t mean it’s worth liking, accepting or defending. Is that enough clue for you?

  • Ron

    Then don’t read/ignore the article. Why waste your time posting nothing but negative crap on this guy. Idiot.

  • FragilityG4

    The irony of your post is hilarious! Are you a comedian? If you are head down to Second City now! You’ll have people falling out of their seats! Hahaha!! Look, I like artistic renders, by other designers. When I read the headline I don’t know who it’s by. I click on the article and sometimes I read that dreaded name … Martin … MARTIN. Now I’m stuck looking at his crap …… but hey if you don’t like my posts about how I think this guy stinks … don’t read them! Hahaha

    My thoughts exactly… at first.

    Now and after thinking things thru, I find that:

    1) the sticks are perfect for easy manipulation
    2) the stick is the perfect shape for capting sounds from the mouth
    3) the sticks are surely used as long antennas between both earpods
    4) the nice chrome extremities are simply delicious
    5) I’ve heard from early owners of the AirPods that they are more confortable that the regular Apple earpods
    6) They also said that sound quality (for earpods) and BT connection is very good – no connection lost!
    7) 219$ for earpods this quality is really cheap: loads of other models, much more expensives and with faulty Bluetooth connection

    All in all, that’s a pretty impressive achivement 🙂
