There's no padding on the interior, but I suppose that's standard as far as generic headphone cases go.

I realize that the box the X1 comes in is quite strong and protective, but it's humongous and impractical for daily use for me. Plus, the box isn't really replaceable and I don't want to subject it to unnecessary wear and tear.

This one does.

I don't own either case as mine sit on my sennheiser headphone stand but from what I've read the Slappa case is a tight fit and the memory foam squishes a bit.  The casebudi is interesting, since it seems to have a little more space inside.

 

From Amazon product descriptions:

 

Slappa - 4.2 x 7.2 x 8.8 inches

Casebudi XL - 10 x 8.5 x 5 inches

+1, fits perfectly with room in the middle for cables and adapters! :)

It's a very sturdy hard shell. Built like a tank (if tanks were made out of ballistic nylon).

As tangfj pointed out, I recall a little while ago in the thread, the Slappa case was discussed, but someone who owned it acknowledged that it did put some pressure on the earpads, and recommended it for short-term transportation but not long-term storage. And as far as reviews go, people on Amazon seem to like the Casebudi more, irrespective of size.

Sounds about right. That extra 0.7" is pretty much the only wiggle room discernible. I'm guessing there's no horizontal wiggle because the earcushions are just big enough that they fit snugly in the middle and prevent the headphones from moving sideways (since the depth decreases toward the edges and is greatest in the middle).

Not quite.  I have the Slappa case and it squishes the ear cushions a bit.  Fits well enough for me to use the Slappa to carry the X1 around from home to the office but it's definitely not suitable for long term storage.

Hey Gents,

 

With the arrival of my tax returns, I caved in and bought the X1 from Amazon for $205, so not bad at all! Can't wait to get them in. I bet they'll sing on my V200.

It was me who first reported on the Slappa potentially cramping the foam. However, on slightly longer transports, I did not see any evidence of my foams having imprints (which would have signified being too small) or any deformation. Hence, my response to the claim you can't get smaller. But I do understand, especially if one wants to include the cord, etc. (which do fit in the Slappas as well, btw).

I use this and it fits perfectly.

Might as well use the box they came in, it'd be smaller. tongue.gif

I'm trying to decide between that and the CASEBUDi case.


If you want a handle, you should probably go for the Ebay one. One thing I don't care for about the Casebudi is that it just has a small strap affixed to the side, which isn't flimsy but lacks the reliability of a full-fledged handle. And the fact that it connects to the upper-left side means that when you hold it, the case dangles sideways, which isn't a huge deal but annoys me. The Ebay one also comes with a much bigger pocket, whereas the Casebudi comes with a very small velcro-detachable pocket that's frankly too small to fit much of anything besides an adapter.

Thanks, I'll go with the Ebay one then.

That CASEBUDi looks almost identical to the case the Astro A40 headset comes.  It looks like it comes from the same OEM.  If that is indeed the case (pun intended), then it is a rigid high quality case.

Let us know how the X1 fits and maybe post some pictures.
