We re not saying Apple s new AirPods feature the most incomprehensibly, embarrassingly awful design of any smartphone accessory we ve ever seen.
But we re also not not saying that.
It s almost impossible to fully understand why Apple would release a product that looks so ridiculous, and we re already hanging our heads in shame at the thought of people walking around in public with these hideous wireless earbuds poking out of their ears.
We know that much better designs are possible because there are already wireless earbuds available that feature much better designs.
We also understand that the gross AirPod stems serve a purpose.
But nothing can rationalize these ugly new earbuds, and now a hilarious accessory reminds us just how comical this whole situation is.
