Otterbox Defender iPod Touch & Iphone 3G & DockStubz Review

Otterbox Defender iPod Touch & Iphone 3G & DockStubz ReviewI have a real need for protection when it comes to my iPod or iPhone. So I set out to find something that would give me the quality protection I was looking for. There are a ton of iPod cases but after doing the research about them many are just for look and very few really protect your iPhone.

OtterBox Defender iPod Touch & Iphone 3G & DockStubz ReviewAs always I find myself going back to one of the best companies for real protective cases Otterbox. I have to admit that these cases look a little bulky but it's mostly look when you receive the case you find the small amount of bulk is well worth it when you see all the protection you're getting for the size.

 

 

 

 

 

OtterBox Defender iPod Touch & Iphone 3G & DockStubz ReviewOtterBox Defender iPod Touch & Iphone 3G & DockStubz ReviewThe iPod defender series case has to be my favorite, it has a well made housing which has silicone plugs in every outlet and plug-in for the iPod giving you nearly total protection. I say nearly because if you where to pull a plug open it would allow dust and dirt in but this is as close to being protected as you can get and still maintain the functionally of the product. The IPhone however has a simlar design but this one has two small holes on the bottom to allow the speakers to come through.

This is something I think could be improved by just inserting something like Gore-Tex. This would allow the sound out but would make a much better seal from stuff getting in but even with the two holes the iPhone case is very durable and ideal for protection from dust, dirt or bangs.

Some things I noticed about the two cases is the buttons everyone who knows iPod touches and iPhones have very small buttons and with some cases they can become very hard to push and even without a case with big fingers they can be a pain.

This brings me to one of the best features to the Otterbox cases and that is they have remarkably good buttons in fact the buttons of the case acutely make using the small buttons on the iPhone and iPod even easier with the case on than they are with no case and as you know this is very seldom the case more times than not the cases becomes a hindrance rather than something to help you.

When you install the case you need to fallow the instructions on Otterbox's website they have produced a small video that will fully walk you through the processes and if you fallow these instructions to the letter you will have a great experience with this product. I point out this because there are some thing's people would not think of, Like take off any protective films that are on your iPod or your iPod case to allow the shield that covers the glass of the iPod face to make a soled bonding so you don't get them bubbles that will distorted your viewing window.


OtterBox Defender iPod Touch & Iphone 3G & DockStubz ReviewOtterBox Defender iPod Touch & Iphone 3G & DockStubz ReviewThe impact resistance of the Otterbox iPod & iPhone cases in the Defender line are phenomenal you're not going to find a better case that protects your iPod so well and will still allow you to totally use every function of the iPod.

 

OtterBox Defender iPod Touch & Iphone 3G & DockStubz ReviewOtterBox Defender iPod Touch & Iphone 3G & DockStubz ReviewNow I have one complaint and that would have to be that I can't use my new iPod dock with this case on. The reason is the case is so thick at the bottom that you need a small extension or something to fit up into the case. I have to say I think these cases are worth every penny of the added cost of the extender so you don't have to take your iPod out all the time and it stays totally protected!

DockStubz By CableJive

OtterBox Defender iPod Touch & Iphone 3G & DockStubz ReviewSome have ran into problems because of the size of the Otterbox cases and I'm not one to leave this alone. I like to give a salutation to this problem because I have had the same, simply if you want the super durability of the Otterbox Defender case you will have to take into account that some docks will not fit right out of the box, But after doing a lot of research and forum searching I found the salutation for all you guys like me that hate to take out the ipod each time to place it in the dock and that is the DockStubz.

OtterBox Defender iPod Touch & Iphone 3G & DockStubz ReviewWhat is the DockStubz well it's just like it says a "Dock Stub" a small pass through docking adaptor that will fit perfectly like it was made for the Otterbox case. It's the only one adaptor that will not just fit the Defender case but all cases on the market aside from the iPhone 4 bumper case. So when your ordering online and worried that the adaptor your buying will not fit get the DockStubz by CableJive and worry no more. I have looked into dock adaptors and only found one that works with the Otterbox Defender case and that is the DockStubz it's the only salutation if you want to dock your Defender case to speakers docks or like my Sony dream machine.

OtterBox Defender iPod Touch & Iphone 3G & DockStubz ReviewI want to point out that the DockStubz is the only one that will fit without having to sand down any parts or change it in any way it fits stock with no need for modifications in any way and if your iPod dock doesn't have the power to run or its not powered the DockStubz has a mini USB so it can be charged externally as well! Another things I want to point out is I'm kinda a iPod junkie and love the ways it can be used especially when it's been jailbroken and CableJive has some of the best cables I have ever seen if you have a need for a cable size or just wish there was a cable to fit your needs, You just may find what you looking for with CableJive so if your into iPods I strongly recommend you check out their website!
