Gentlemen_finn:

I went and bought one of the first iSee-40 in Australia yesterday, nice case and pretty sexy in real life. only $49 Aust. good price for a beautiful case - only downside is hard to use with a dock due to the locking system.

They also had the Mini, looked nice too, I'll get it for my GF's mini next week.

I just hope the Polycarbonate plastic can stand some scrach.

Hey Hokka, (or anyone else for that matter) i'm looking to get one of these cases in melb.aus. Could you drop the location of where you picked one up at. The mini case i'm refering to. Thanks!

Guido,

But as you know all US imports distributed here are expensive (after tax and freight), and I did try go direct from Contour in US, in their email reply they instructed to contact Macsense.

Hey hokka, thanks for the link, i'll be ordering mine ASAP!

will the stock belt clip fit around this? or can the back part be left out and put the original belt clip on the back?

Posted by SupermaN on November 17, 2004 at 10:41 AM (PDT) Comment 12

The back part is the same dimensions as the stock clip, so you can leave it off and snap the belt clip on instead.

The case is about the same thickness as the Apple belt clip on the front and back, but the sides are a bit thicker.

also: you can add your own click-wheel protection to this case easily enough by cutting a rectangle of (not too thick) plastic from something like the cover of a clear-covered duotang, or (like me) one of those clear plastic folders you can clip into a binder and store documents in (without having to hole-punch the documents)... Just wrap it around the ipod over the click-wheel before slipping it into the case.

The plastic can't be too thick or else the mini won't slip all the way down into the bottom of the case (or if it does, you'll have a hell of a time getting it out later -- take it from someone with experience).

Has anyone tried it with the ipodonut? I ordered one recently to help with my click-wheel, but I need something for the rest of the case.

it looks good. now, they have the cases for 4G ipod, too. but only what I'm bothered is that it makes scratch itself on the surface, and LCD screen inside the case because it's not hard as much as polycarbonate. I bought Agent18 case for 4G ipod 20GB. it is polycarbonated material. and translucent for the whole body. transparent for screen part and Apple mark, 'ipod' word on the back.

After reading all the reviews, I bought this case for my new silver iPod. It looks very nice and I don't mind the top being open at all. However, it took me a few tries to slip my iPod into the top half, and in doing so, scratched the interior of the case. Mind you that it took me several tries because I didn't want to scratch my new iPod. I was very careful and yet the case is already scratched. I'm wondering what it'll look like in a few days.

Help, I feel like an idiot, but how do you take the case off?

Posted by Smore53211 on February 26, 2005 at 5:53 AM (PDT) Comment 18

I just got this case and it's great. Wife needs to get one.

Posted by BlackBeastie on March 27, 2005 at 12:30 AM (PDT) Comment 19

so its a dumb question but i must ask
since its clear its gonna show my engraving on the back right?
thats the main reason i want to get it
but does it?

Posted by pinkieeee on April 17, 2005 at 12:23 PM (PDT) Comment 20

I bought 2, one for myself and one for my wife. This case is awesome. I CAN ATTACH A LANYARD (too bad lanyard is not included). I don't think agent18 or the Crystal case can do this. Layards are cheap (look for them at cell phone stores).

I use the lanyard quite bit since I don't have pockets sometimes. I run often and the arm band can be so easily added. The case has already saved my ipod a few critical scratches on the screen.

Get this case!
