- The case and headphones are made of smooth molded plastic. The material is shiny, as if polished, free from defects;
- The charging case opens easily and closes tightly, leaving no gaps;
- The speakers of the original headphones have a metal mesh with weaving at an angle of 45 degrees, while fake headphones, in most cases, have a mesh of fabric;
- The original AirPods are labeled: the left earphone is labeled L (Left) and the right earphone is labeled R (Right). Fakes often do not have markings.
