Protect your AirPods Pro in luxury with Woolnut’s premium leather case.
Ever since my first iPhone fell from my hands and collided with a hard tile floor in a mall, I have been fanatical about putting my valuable tech devices in protective cases. Apple has come leaps and bounds from the first generation iPhones and they use much more robust materials in their products than they did back then. That said, accidents do happen and I just don’t like to take any chances.
Fortunately, cases come in all kinds of styles and materials these days and they are designed to not only protect, but also to add luxury and personalization to your devices. This is why I sought out the Woolnut Leather Case for AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) when I got my newest Apple earbuds. I wanted something that set my AirPods case apart from everyone else.

Pricing & Availability
The Leather Case for AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) has a list price of $39.90. It comes in four different color ways – black, cognac, green, and grey. It’s currently only available through woolnut.com. Other versions of the case are available on Amazon so this option may be available there as well at some point.
The Woolnut Leather Case for AirPods Pro comes in Woolnut’s classic retail box. The box features a magnetic closure, which easily opens on the side. The case comes in two pieces and does not come with any instructions for installation.
It is pretty self-explanatory, but one thing I found different from other cases I’ve used is that the top piece has a small 3M adhesive strip that helps to hold it in place. I would recommend cleaning the charging case to ensure the adhesive sticks the best it can. This little strip is a big difficult to get a hold of and I even had to use a small pair of tweezers to grab the tab of the strip.
The bottom piece of the case slides onto the bottom half of the charging case and stays securely in place. While the case does not move at all, it’s also not a permanent installation. It can be removed.
The bottom of the Woolnut case has three cutouts – one for the charging port, one for the speaker, and one for the vent hole. They are perfectly aligned as is the hold on the side for the lanyard loop. I have the black and the grey versions of this case and I chose to use the grey one. I really like the color Woolnut chose because it blends very nicely with the chrome pieces on the charging case.
There is a cut out on the front of the case to show off the LED status light and the “Woolnut” logo on the back is directly over the pairing/reset button on the back of the AirPod charging case. You can feel a softer spot on the case that allows you to press that pairing button through the case.
One of my favorite features of the 2nd Generation AirPods Pro is the fact that they are MagSafe compatible. Unfortunately, this does not allow that feature to be used. The case will charge wirelessly on any Qi-compatible charger, but it won’t adhere to a magnetic charging base. Not all AirPods Pro cases are like that.
I do really enjoy the style of this case. It’s classy and instantly dresses up the look of the charging case. The leather case is also 100% functional for the AirPods’ Charging Case, with the exception of the MagSafe feature.
The Woolnut Leather Case for AirPods Pro is a stylish and practical accessory that enhances the protection of your valuable earbuds. Its sleek design, premium materials, and attention to detail make it a standout option among other cases on the market. The soft leather provides a comfortable grip while also protecting against scratches and drops.
It’s easy to install and remove, giving you quick access to your AirPods when you need them most. If you’re looking for a high-quality case that will keep your AirPods Pro safe and looking great, consider an upgrade to the Leather Case for AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) from Woolnut.
