For whatever reason, it's become a thing to resell used AirPods.

Years ago, when I worked in video game retail, we wouldn’t accept trade-ins of gaming headphones for sanitation reasons, never mind earbuds. The thought of buying a pair used AirPods — that someone has had inside their ears while running, working out, etc — is so gross.

If you’re in the market for wireless earbuds and want save a couple bucks, there are new, less expensive options than used AirPods.
