Incase Lanyard Review – MacRumors

Apple’s second-generation AirPods Pro charging case has a set of small metal holes on the right side, with the holes designed to accommodate a lanyard. Apple does not provide a lanyard with the ‌AirPods Pro‌ and in fact only sells one on its website and in retail stores.

The Incase Lanyard is priced at $12.95 and was designed with the ‌AirPods Pro‌ in mind, launching on the same day as the new headphones. The lanyard features a thin gray strap that slips through the holes in the ‌AirPods Pro‌, then buckles to hold securely.

It’s a standardized lanyard design that’s used for all sorts of accessories, and you’re probably familiar with it if you’ve worn a badge or had a smartphone case with a lanyard loop available. The loop that attaches to the ‌AirPods Pro‌ is in turn attached to a lighter gray plastic clip, and at the end of the plastic clip there is a longer, thicker gray braided loop that can be wrapped around the wrist or loop on a backpack or bag strap.

I like to attach my ‌AirPods Pro‌ to an interior zipper inside my backpack, keeping it accessible while hiding it from view. The aforementioned clip can be used to attach the Incase lanyard to objects, as you can loop it and then insert the strap through the edge of the clip. The clip is tight so it feels secure. I’ve also used the wrist strap to carry the ‌AirPods Pro‌ when I don’t have a bag with me, and I think it’s comfortable and secure. I appreciate the braided design, but the all gray design is boring. I wish Apple and Incase would offer the Incase cord in a better range of colors.

If you use the Incase lanyard to attach the ‌AirPods Pro‌ to keys, your wrist, or the outside of a bag, it should be noted that there is no mechanism that secures the ‌AirPods Pro‌ case itself . If the ‌AirPods Pro‌ 2 cover were to open, your AirPods could fall out.

Incase says the lanyard is 9.25 inches long, and that felt like a good length to use as a wrist strap, although it was a bit long. I made effort to pull both sides of the plastic clip, and the lanyard is well made and durable.

Overall, the Incase lanyard is fine, and I have no complaints about it. It serves its purpose and seems to hold its own for quite some time. I want to point out that at $13 it won’t break the bank, but it is relatively expensive. On Amazon.com, you can buy multiple lanyard packs for half the price because you can use any lanyard with the thin loop design.

How to buy

The Incase Lanyard can be purchased from the Apple Store online for $12.95.
