This new premium accessory from luxury brand Gucci reminds us that the product its protecting is also another pricey item. We guess if you can afford Apple AirPods Max, you’re not far off from being able to afford this USD 980 case (around PHP 50,017 converted).
This online-exclusive Ophidia case joins several accessories and cases the Italian company has made for Apple devices.
The case looks like a small Gucci purse, which you can actually carry that way thanks to an adjustable shoulder strap. It is lined in neoprene and viscose and features beige and ebony GG Supreme canvas. Gucci says that material has “low environmental impact.”
Its look is a mix of vintage and contemporary, with the brand “playing with the contrast between past and present.” It has brown leather details, gold-tone hardware, and green and red Web. The Ophidia has a Snap button closure with the gold GG logo.
Inside, the Latin word Hodiernum, which stands for “belonging to the present day,” is printed.
9to5Mac pointed out that it isn’t clear if the Ophidia has the magnets like on Apple’s Smart Case. Those magnets are used to put the AirPods Max in sleep mode to help prevent battery drain when not in use.
