How to get the most money from selling your used AirPods

  1. Clean up your AirPods and charging case (tips and tricks here)
  2. Sell the charging case and left/right AirPods separately

Because individual component replacements for AirPods are so expensive from Apple ($69 each), there’s a strong reseller market.

A used AirPods charging case regularly sells for $50-$60 on eBay. Individual AirPods can also go for around $50. Even if you get less than those prices, you’ll likely be able to recoup at least half of the cost of the new AirPods.
