Bullshit of the day: build wired AirPods
This engineer “fixed” his AirPods by adding a USB-C cable

Some wired AirPods? Yep, someone else has this terrible idea. After creating the world’s first iPhone with USB-C, the first Android with Lightning, or the first AirPods with USB-C, engineer Ken Pillonel decided: add cable to some AirPods. He shared the process of creating this device with all of us, as he had done on previous occasions.

Unlike the previous cases, the truth is that this doesn’t make any sense. AirPods are just great because they’re 100% wireless. “Wired AirPods”, here you have Apple EarPods which is much cheaper.

Wired AirPods are not AirPods

The history of these AirPods is quite curious. apparently about that AirPods that broke and decided to “fix” by adding a cable with USB-C connection. These AirPods were purchased in 2020 and their battery only lasted a few minutes, while trying to fix them Ken Pillonel broke one of them and it was the only way he could think of to fix it.

It should be noted that First and second generation AirPods get 0/10 repairability score from iFixitmakes them nearly impossible to repair for most people. This is a big hit for Ken, a slightly different “fix” but it does allow you to continue using the AirPods.

It is definitely not a process we recommend for users who are not experienced in repair. This AirPods are incredibly compact and difficult to repair, even replacing the battery is an almost impossible task. If you run into problems with the AirPods battery, there are some tricks you can use before trying to fix the problem on your own. They can end up like this with a USB-C cable.
