So on a regular Monday morning, I was browsing the internet, looking for Cyber Monday deals to deal with them Monday blues. And I came across something absolutely ridiculous.
As users, we went from headphones and earphones to wireless headphones. Then finally, the ground-breaking innovation, AirPods made a debut in 2016. However, this new invention on Amazon has left me positively baffled. WTF is an AirPods Strap?
After years of trying to achieve floating earphones, why do AirPods need a strap? So they can be wireless headphones? Aren’t they the same?
According to the reviews, people are opting for these because they end up losing one of the AirPods.
Am I the only one who thinks this is stupid AF? Thankfully, no. Twitter agrees.

WAIT! WHAT?!? A $60 strap you put around your Apple AirPods to, basically, turn them back into regular headphones. https://t.co/q0AlN8CJj0— Jeff&Cara (@jeffcara1041) December 4, 2019
