I think it's very stylish and modern.
If you buy AirPods, no one will call you old-fashioned. Now everyone has them.
Moreover, there are different earbuds of all colors and even with prints. And celebrities have their own AirPods which were made specifically for them and exist in 1 copy. I think that's very cool. I also have AirPods, but they are not branded. I love listening to music in the gym and have already lost 2 pairs of headphones, so there is no point in overpaying for the brand. If you are interested, here https://woahtech.com/best-fake-airpods/ you can see a review of my earbuds. I can say that I am happy with the design, sound quality, and price.
