Just got my Westone Monitor Vault in today and thought I'd do a quick write up of my first impressions on it (my first posting):
I got it in the mail today and was anxious to open it, dropping it on the ground it the process (). I chose the orange color (comes in clear, orange, and black). The build quality feels great, the plastic its made out of feels strong and doesn't flex or indent when pushed on.
The hinge doesn't feel flimsy either and locks securely into place. It has 2 clips on each side of the lever that lock into place with a rubber gasket that runs along the inside, keeping the seal tight.
The inside of the case contains a foam of some sort that is attached to the plastic body (I'm not sure with what) but seems to be somewhat firm, maybe allowing for high impacts if dropped or moved around. It is also spacious enough to wrap the cable up and place the UM3X bodies in it comfortably.
The case has a nice size to it and isn't to big, fits easy into my back pack but not quite in my pocket comfortably (I'm sure if I didn't wear tight jeans they would fit in them just fine).
Overall for the first 12 hours of having it (not to long I know) I'm impressed with the build quality and it makes me feel much less worried about carrying my UM3X around back and forth between my college campus. The original soft case that came with the UM3X always made me nervous about carrying them with me, even when in my back pack but this case puts me at ease now. A thanks to David at Westone for his help by the way! Hope this impression answers any questions you had. If you go to Westone's site you can get more info on the case, I believe the price is around $15.
