Waterproof case maker Catalyst is now focused on Apple AirPods, with a new case available starting today. The new very soft, silicon case is waterproof up to 3.3 feet and drop proof from four feet.

The container comes with a metal carabiner, meaning the case can be attached to bags, jackets or anywhere where you want to grab the wireless earbuds quickly.

At the top, the AirPods slip into the palm-sized case, where they're open and reachable.The bottom of the Catalyst case can also be opened to attach a Lightening cable to charge the AirPods inside.

Apple AirPods are wireless devices that allow people to make hands-free calls, and have not been updated since they launched in 2016. The company has been rumored to be working on a newer version, an AirPods 2, with a release date now thought to be in 2019.

The new $29.99 silicone case is available at Apple stores, on Apple's web site and on Catalyst's site as well as of today.

"We are excited to launch this new AirPods case just ahead of the holidays," Catalyst CEO June Lai said. "Our cases have proven to be unmatched in the market for style, convenience and protection. It's the perfect pairing for Apple AirPods."
