Can you sell 1 Airpod?

Answered by Jarrod Smith

I can provide a detailed answer for you. Selling a single AirPod can be a bit trickier compared to selling a pair. However, it’s not impossible, and there are a few options available to you.

First, let’s talk about the trade-in options. As I mentioned earlier, Apple doesn’t offer a specific trade-in program for individual AirPods. However, there are a few websites that buy used electronics, including AirPods. Some popular options include Gazelle, Decluttr, and BuyBackWorld. These sites typically offer around $50 for a single AirPod, depending on the condition and model.

If you’re looking to sell your AirPods for more than $50, your best bet would be to sell them on your own through platforms like eBay, LetGo, or Facebook Marketplace. These platforms allow you to set your own price and negotiate with potential buyers.

Before selling your AirPods, there are a couple of important steps you should take. First, make sure to remove them from your iCloud account. This is crucial as the new owner will need to pair them with their own device. To do this, go to your iPhone settings, tap on your Apple ID, select “Find My,” then choose your AirPods and click on “Remove from Account.”

Next, you’ll want to clean your AirPods thoroughly to ensure they are in good condition for the new owner. Use a soft, lint-free cloth to clean the exterior and remove any dirt or debris. Be careful not to get water or cleaning agents into the speaker mesh or charging port.

When listing your AirPods for sale, be sure to provide accurate and detailed information about their condition, including any scratches or defects. Including clear photos of the AirPods can also help attract potential buyers.

In terms of pricing, you can check listings for similar AirPods on the platforms mentioned earlier to get an idea of the market value. Take into account factors such as the age, condition, and any additional accessories included.

While selling a single AirPod may not be as straightforward as selling a pair, it is still possible. Utilize trade-in websites for a quick and hassle-free option, or sell them on your own through platforms like eBay, LetGo, or Facebook Marketplace for potentially higher returns. Just make sure to remove them from your iCloud account and clean them before listing. Good luck with your sale!
