It comes with a case that allows you to use a wireless charging pad. I like it because it saves wear and tear on charging cables and connectors. I've had them fail, when I least wanted it. However, I got lucky and found an Anker wireless charging pad on super sale, so it was cheaper than a cable and easy to use. If you already have the older Air Pods, you can get the case separately for about the difference in price. The quality of sound is very similar.
