Accessory Manufacturers Already Tethering AirPods

When Apple announced the AirPod wireless headphones last week the initial humorous reaction on Twitter was to tie them together with a piece of string to prevent them getting lost.

Seems like some third party accessory OEMs had the same idea, with at least two announcing straps to join the AirPods together into something resembling a more traditional Bluetooth stereo headset.

Whether iPhone customers take the risk of losing an AirPod or defeat Apple’s wire-free mantrab by tethering them together, they’ll probably end up paying for what is a questionable design decision on Apple’s part.
