A pioneering designer has sent Twitter users into a frenzy with her latest creation; 'Airlings'. A combination of earrings and AirPods, this unique invention is both functional and fabulous.
No more worries about losing your beloved AirPods or feelings that they just make you look a bit of a muppet. You can now enjoy all the benefits of your wireless headphones and look good. Why weren't these beauties invented sooner?
The brains behind them was Gabrielle Reilly, 22, who had no idea that when she shared her new innovation that the world would go crazy for them.
Clocking up 200,000 likes and over 1,500 comments, let's take a look and see what people had to say.
Apple revealed its wireless headphones in September 2016.
Some people loved them.
Especially gym bunnies.
Some users even claimed they gave you superpowers.Simply by wearing the AirPods you will be transformed into a massively successful and most importantly rich member of society. Form a queue here please.
The official motto of the AirPods owner.
But some found them too expensive.The $159 price tag was too much for some Apple fans. Although we'd happily sell a kidney to get hold of these bad boys.
Even doctors can't afford them.
Some were worried they would lose them.
Because how could they possibly fall out?I mean, if you shake your head hard enough even your brains would probably fall out! But we get it, this was a genuine concern at the time.
A little feminine looking perhaps?

Surely the logistics are wrong though?
@bloodorgy Airpod earrings should float below your ears because you can connect them by the Bluetooth.— ZomZomInfection (@ZomZomInfection)1548629916.0
Could they possibly be a bit dangerous?
I just saw that airpod earrings tweet, and my brain just had to make me think like "ok but what if someone yanks th… https://t.co/kke7orESBy— 👓🦉⚡ Miss Ermyknee Potter 📚🐱⚗ (@👓🦉⚡ Miss Ermyknee Potter 📚🐱⚗)1548605390.0
In more ways than one.And that's without even considering the danger of wearing any sound blocking device in your ear when out and about. One minute you're all like "Look at me in my expensive AirPod/Airlings" and the next you're lying squashed like a bug on the floor. Remember safety is paramount readers.
And what if you lose one earring?

21st century problems are real.They think they had it bad before the wheel was invented, look at the problems that us snowflakes are facing today. How ever will we cope?
Do AirPods even need to be turned into jewellery?This girl is already rocking AirPods as a pair of earrings without even realising it. Mmm, we are not sure. The AirPod design still looks a bit like a sperm hanging out of our ears to us.
The older generation just don't get technology.
I tried to put an AirPod in my moms ear to show her a video and she slapped it and one of her earrings out— James (@James)1532446654.0
This guy's taking it to the next level.
