AirPods replicas come in different types of packaging, each with its own unique features and potential risks.
The No-logo box is white and has a similar shape to the original AirPods box. It showcases an image of AirPods but lacks the "AirPods" text, Apple logos, or trademarks. The included manual and charging cable are generic, without the serial numbers typically found on original AirPods packaging.
Apple Logo Box
The Apple logo box mirrors the packaging of legitimate AirPods, featuring the traditional "AirPods" text and Apple logos. The manuals and charging cable inside bear Apple markings. However, requesting an "Apple box" could increase the risk of product seizure at customs, leading to fines or destruction of the product. To mitigate this risk, many sellers use a double box technique, hiding the actual Apple box inside a generic headphone-shaped box.
