Custom IEM case - Otterbox 1000 (?) or UE 'Zippo' or something else?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've had a look through some of the old threads for IEM cases but I don't how many of the smaller ones (I want something hard that'll fit in a jacket pocket), e.g. Altoids, will work for customs.

This goes for the Ultimate Ears Zippo style case too - does anyone use it for customs? It looks too small, but I've only seen pictures.

The other one I have in mind is an Otterbox 1000. Does anyone know if the ones shipped by JHA are different on the interior - if they're lined or anything like that.

Also, if there's another small, hard case you'd recommend, I'd take a good look at that too.

Thanks for your help.

EDIT:
I have a UE metal case but the plastic clip rim in the middle which holds the rubber to the case has come off (I don't know how, I just noticed it one day) and it seemed less secure.

The thing with the Otterbox and Pelican styled boxes is that they are HUGE and ungainly to carry in pockets. i use the metal UE tin, and that has more than enough clearance for customs. You could also get one of the semi-hard shell Shure or Westone cases. Customs aren't as fragile as you think if they were molded correctly and have most of the insides filled with acrylic (etc...).

JH Audio's Otterbox 1000 cases are just the regular case with a personalized sticker on the top. They include a pouch, but all that really does is shed lint. It's better than nothing, though.
