While I don’t hate the design of the AirPods, one thing I particularly dislike about Apple’s new wireless earbuds is that they come exclusively in white. It seems I’m not the only one.

Independent designer Martin Hajek has built some mockups of the AirPods in Apple’s new Jet Black color – and they look absolutely stunning.

Wondering how Apple’s new wireless earbuds would look if they weren’t white, the talented designer “modelled the earphones and rendered them in the brand-new iPhone gloss black”.

While you can’t buy a functional pair of these, Hajek is selling his 3D model for $35 on Turbo Squid.

Meanwhile, Apple is expected to start shipping its new line of iPhones this Friday and the AirPods later in October.
