“Customers can order the standalone wireless charging case for Rs 7,500,” news agency IANS reported the company saying in a statement. However, at the time of writing this article, the AirPods were listed as ‘currently unavailable’ on Amazon and Flipkart.

For the uninitiated, the USP of the new AirPods is that they come with active-noise cancellation. The previous version of the AirPods were criticised for lacking this feature.
