" ...  this thing didn't work and scratched my airpods  ...  "
comment
" ...  Difficult to install because of the magnet.  ...  "
comment
" ...  the material the sticker is made out of was very easy to rip, the sticker did not firmly fit into air pods, as you can see it ripped so easily only after a day of receiving.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The sticker is magnetic and is very difficult to get lined up on the inside of the case.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Sorry but this “guard” doesn’t work for me, hard to install, once is in position doesn’t stays in position, mine stays for a month and now is broke, NOT GOOD,  ...  "
comment
" ...  Ended up ripping them off after that.  ...  "

" ...  It is magnetized to the AirPods, which makes using the adhesive backing, actually sticking to where it needs to be, impossible.  ...  "

" ...  They were so flimsy they fell apart when trying to install them.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Once on, the guard has to be completely on the plastic (that’s the hard part) and not overhanging. ... Also, I cut the plastic closely and positioned the guard with the plastic to avoid touching (as seen in YouTube tutorial).  ...  "
comment
" ...  It lasted for 1 week and then it started to get corrosion color and more dirt started to stick and then it falls off no more adhesive  ...  "
comment
" ...  These broke off after 2 days.  ...  "

" ...  The other problem that I just found is that the thin corners/sides tear easy and don't really have a strong glue to stick to the case.  ...  "

" ...  Kind of broke a little and some of it goes up with airpod  ...  "

" ...  I can count three rips that have appeared in the material since I’ve installed them, and I’m still getting dust and metal flakes in the case.  ...  "

" ...  They don’t stick well to the case even after I clean the case very well. ... After a week of opening and closing the case dust guard lift up and broke.  ...  "
comment
" ...  with that said, I hate the dust that this protects against.  ...  "
comment
